HOW CAN A 10 GO FOR A 5?
Baggage screener Kirk (Jay Baruchel), who’s always suffering abuse from his family, meets the hottest woman (Alice Eve) he’s ever seen at the airport – and she takes a liking to him. The tagline catches the theme of the film; is it possible for a nerd to snag himself a woman who causes neck-pains just by walking down a street? Fanboys star Baruchel is the right choice for the nerd part and the cast do keep things relatively amusing (including a ball-shaving scene)… but this sweet-natured comedy is way too bland.
2010-U.S. 104 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Jim Field Smith. Cast: Jay Baruchel (Kirk), Alice Eve (Molly), T.J. Miller (Stainer), Mike Vogel, Nate Torrence, Krysten Ritter.
Trivia: Molly’s parents are played by Eve’s real-life mom and dad.
