Kirk (Jay Baruchel) is what commonly is known as a looser.
He still trapped in a job as a custom officer whilst his dream of being pilot start to vanish. And what’s more, his life time girlfriend just dumped him.
However, everything changes when in a boredom day in his workplace knows by change Molly (Alice Eve), a smoking hot Blondie that, in order to change her own life punished by loads of one night stands and awesomely gorgeous and random guys, decides to give a change to that skinny guy who seems of that kind which never let her down.
Ever since that encounter, Kirk freaks out with the possibility of having a steady relationship with his dreamt girl even if everybody wouldn’t bet on it.
First appearance of Jay Baruchel, a stand up comedian well-known among this circle that so far had had small roles in such movies as Tropic Thunder or Dollar Million Baby. A next door guy, really funny that from now on I dare to foresee will be in the spotlight due to his hilarious skills to make us laugh.
Beside Baruchel, the story ain’t a big deal. The story describes how a regular guy (looser in this case) that falls for an unreachable as well as insultingly beautiful girl, struggles against all handicaps to success with this odd relationship. Obviously this couple will end up working out living happily ever after.
However, countless funny and embarrassing situations take place in half way, making this movie being a good entertain that causes more than a laugh.
