The Independent Culture

In which Jay Baruchel, one of the loser sidekicks in Knocked Up, gets promoted to leading-man status, acquiring three loser sidekicks of his own.

The plot is all there in the title – he's a scrawny ticket-checker at an airport, while his new girlfriend is a stunning lawyer – but despite one too many gross-out sequences, SOOML is actually a sweet, tightly scripted rom-com with a likeable star. Alice Eve is the blonde bombshell who outclasses him.
