She’s Out of My League Review
My biggest shock was that this movie was made in 2010! I thought it was a 90s movie.
She’s Out of My League is about a man called Kirk who starts dating a new girl called Molly who him and his friends believe is way out of his league. This starts a whirlwind of Kirk trying to keep her while also battling his crazy family, his ex, and his own insecurities.
The one thing I loved about this movie was the moral of it. The big climax is Kirk reveals he holds Molly on a pedestal because he sees her as perfect and he sees himself as mediocre. It comes to light his friend also went through the same thought process with his last girlfriend. The boys need to realise their own worth and love themselves because otherwise they will never be truly happy and will always see these girls as too good for them.
It’s the old ‘if you can’t love yourself how can you love somebody else?’ from good old Rupaul. If you don’t see yourself as good or worthy then you will always be thinking ‘why is this great person with me?’ you will always be looking for signs that something is wrong, whether you’re being used for a bet or a joke or whatever. And these insecurities will leak into your relationship so even if everything is going well you could easily ruin it by feeling insecure.
I am a true believer that you need to love yourself first. You need to know your own worth and standards before loving someone else because otherwise you will never feel good enough or will settle for something that is below you and not worthy of your time or energy. I am just glad this movie backs up my points so I don’t seem too preachy and there is method in my madness.
What do you think? I would definitely recommend this movie and watch it again.
Until next time.
