In the new rom-com 'She's Out of My League,' which opens Friday, Jay Baruchel plays an underachieving Regular Joe -- a "five," according to his friends -- who dates a "solid 10" (Alice Eve), much to the disbelief of the universe at large. While obviously another variation on the ever-popular "loser gets the hot girl" theme, at least the movie goes to great lengths to address the disparity, as reflected in its title.

That's not generally the case with the films listed below. While not all are riffs on the classic male loser/female hottie scenario, each one features a badly mismatched couple of one kind or another and expects us to happily go along with it.

We say: not so fast. Even in the fantasy world of Hollywood, some things are just a little too far-fetched.
