Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that She's Out of My League is like the recent slew of Judd Apatow and Apatow-inspired comedies that are slathered in exceedingly vulgar humor, but also have a sweet, endearing center. The film has little nudity, but because of the frequency and intensity of the language (including near-constant "f--k" and "s--t") and sexual situations (including a scene that revolves around premature ejaculation), it's best for kids and tweens to steer clear. Happily, the movie has a good heart and a good message about learning to believe in yourself regardless of looks, which is perfect for responsible older teens. Young-at-heart parents might enjoy the movie as well, even if most teens won't want to sit next to them.
This is a highly sex-obsessed movie, with constant references to male and female body parts and lots of sex talk (including references to homosexuality), but hardly any nudity. In one major scene, a girl sits in a boy's lap and grinds away on him while kissing; he ejaculates prematurely (though nothing sensitive is visible), which is then used as the source for several more jokes. Later, the same boy and girl strip down to their underwear, preparing for sex (which does not happen). We see one naked male butt. A man climbs out of a pool wearing white underpants, revealing some of his pubic hair. The lead character shaves his pubic hair (with some help from a friend), and though very little is actually shown, everything is implied.
The movie has some comic violence, such as a chase through an airport with characters slamming into each other. We also see a hockey puck to the groin, as well as some violence at a hockey game. Other than that, there is some mild scuffling and minor threats.
We have almost constant swearing, with countless uses of the word "f--k" in all its permutations. The movie also contains multiple uses of, but is not limited to: "s--t," "Goddamn it," "my God," "balls," "p---y," "ass," "bitch," "dick," plus insults like "moron" and jargon like "raw-dogging" and "jizzed." We also see the extended middle finger.
Believe it or not, among all the vulgar humor, the movie has a solidly positive message about being true to oneself and valuing people based on their character instead of their looks. Though most of the film is spent rating people on their appearance, and giving them 1-to-10 ratings (Molly [Alice Eve] is a "hard ten," while Kirk [Jay Baruchel] is a "five"), Kirk, and all the other characters as well, come to learn that who a person is inside counts for more.
An iPhone plays a major part in the two heroes getting together. When the girl gets it back after losing it, her response is something like "You saved my life." The hero drives a Dodge Neon, which is constantly referred to in a joking manner.
Drugs / Tobacco /
The characters are all of drinking age, and drink often, but not to overindulgence. Characters drink beer, wine, champagne, and martinis. In one scene, there is a joke about alcoholism. A father asks his son for a beer. The son replies, "Are you sure?" The father replies, "What are you, my sponsor?" In another scene, a nervous, flustered Kirk gulps down a martini, which seems to have little effect on him.
