(3 out of 5 stars)

"A crush becomes an obsession becomes an "out of my league" movie. This leads to an idea: if our lead can't get the girl, "he" can get her. The "he" here is still the lead but he's the manifestation of everything that he thinks his dreamgirl would want. He's risky, he brash, he's charming, he can grow facial hair, and he dresses better - in his mind. The problem is that he doesn't seem to have a handle on this part of his persona and, as things go deeper into the psyche department they also seem to go South - quickly.

When Crea came out in Superbad, Arrested Development, and so many othe rmovies, I found his brand of humor really funny. The problem is, eventually, the same actor starts to run his course. This seems to be a big problem for me in this movie and it is made worse because the movie needed a lot more plot attention.

As I watched the movie, I kept thinking it was being sold to me on movie and concept alone. There was a thought that perhaps went around saying that Cera should try something different and "wouldnt it be funny if he did everything he normally wouldn't." So you have the same character you have seen a lot and you have a character like him, with facial hair, and that talks dirty and breaks things. Combine this with some apparent police issues that come on and off, on and off, and some other things and it is funny BUT only so much.

I'm not saying not to watch the movie. I give it a 3 and that means i liked it BUt that I liked it to a point. It is a flawed movie and, in the supposedly lightheartedness of the film, it gets a bit boring. He can have her, he can't have her, he doesn't know what to do - that stuff hurts the film and only makes me saw "watch it" and nothing more."
