Known Trivia

  • Molly’s parents are played by Alice Eve’s real-life parents, Trevor Eve and Sharon Maughan.
  • Jay Baruchel and Lindsay Sloane, who plays his ex-girlfriend in this movie, were previously in the short-lived series The Stones together, playing brother and sister.
  • When meeting Molly, Dylan asks her (trying to understand why she’s dating Kirk), “Did you hit his car?” In Crossing Over, the character played by Alice Eve, an illegal immigrant, is forced into a sexual relationship with an immigration officer, played by Ray Liotta, after hitting his car.
  • Jay Baruchel, who plays an avid Pittsburgh Penguins fan in the movie is actually a huge hockey fan, and said “I get starstruck and kind of lose my faculties, when I meet hockey players and, especially, Sid,” when referring to meeting NHL star Sidney Crosby.
  • Jay Baruchel’s sister is a big fan of NHL star Sidney Crosby. In an interview Jay said that after he called his sister to tell her about meeting Crosby “she has never been more impressed with me” and he had to take the phone away from his ear “because of the screaming”
  • Jay Baruchel said that he was not willing to do nudity, so the scenes where he is “manscaping”, the butt we see is actually that of a body double.
  • While at the airport, comparisons are being made between Kirk and Molly and romances between other couples. One of the romances noted is between Stephen Hawking and his nurse. Alice Eve, the actress who plays Molly, played a small part in the biographical drama, Hawking, based on Stephen Hawking’s life.
  • During the scene at the airport with Kirk, Marnie, and his friends right before his double-date with Molly at the hockey game, if you look carefully, you can see Kirk has Molly’s iPhone in his hand. That’s because it was originally supposed to be earlier in the film right after he finds her phone. It was moved in editing.
  • The restaurant for Kirk and Molly’s date isn’t a real restaurant. It was a set constructed on an empty bandstand in Pittsburgh’s Market Square.
  • During the scene where Kirk’s friends are teasing him about his premature ejaculation, Jack’s hamburger can be seen to have french fries on it. This is a custom local to Pittsburgh. Sandwiches are famously served that way at Primanti’s, a popular Pittsburgh eatery seen earlier in the background during Kirk and Molly’s date where they meet Cam.

Goofs: Continuity: The air traffic controller addresses the flight to Branson as "EastWest 43", but when Molly sees the departure schedule on the monitor in the airport, it's labeled as EW1564, not EW43.

Plot: An average Joe meets the perfect woman, but his lack of confidence and the influence of his friends and family begin to pick away at the relationship. Full summary »  »

Story: Kirk is an average Joe who works as a TSA agent at the Pittsburgh airport with his friends. The status quo of his fairly monotonous life ends when he meets Molly, a smart, kind and gorgeous blonde. Because she's way out of his league (she's a hard 10 and he is but a 5), Kirk knows there's no way on earth she's ever going to fall for him. Or is there…?Written by Marco van Hoof <>  


Synopsis: Kirk Kettner (Jay Baruchel) is a native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in his mid-20s who has low self-esteem and, by his own admission, has not accomplished very much in life. He works at the Pittsburgh International Airport as a Transportation Security Administration officer, and hopes of becoming a pilot one day. He tries to get back together with his self-centered ex-girlfriend, Marnie (Lindsay Sloane). Marnie ended her relationship with Kirk two years ago and is highly dismissive of his continued romantic interests after his latest pursuit. However, she has remained close with Kirk’s parents (Debra Jo Rupp and Adam LeFevre) and overbearing brother Dylan (Kyle Bornheimer), continues to participate in family activities along with her new boyfriend Ron, and even lives with Kirk’s parents. He has three close male friends who also work at the airport: Stainer (T. J. Miller), Devon (Nate Torrence), and Jack (Mike Vogel).

Then at work one morning, a beautiful woman, Molly McCleish (Alice Eve), arrives at the passenger terminal for a flight to New York. While proceeding through security, her striking looks attract unwanted attention and harassment from several male employees. Kirk is the only employee to treat her courteously. She and Kirk exchange a few innocuous words, and she then proceeds to her flight, accidentally leaving her phone in the airport security area. Upon realizing she has misplaced it, Molly calls her phone and Kirk, back at the security checkpoint, answers. The two arrange for a time to meet the following evening so that he may return the phone to her.

The following night, Kirk arrives at the Andy Warhol Museum where Molly, a professional event planner, is running a party. Devon accompanies Kirk to the Museum where Kirk returns Molly her phone. After returning the phone, both stayed and met Katie, Molly’s sister. Katie then on purpose causes Kirk to spill his drink on the museum director and is asked to leave the museum for being uninvited for the party. Molly offers tickets to Kirk to the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey game at the Mellon Arena as an apology. Molly then subsequently gets herself invited to Kirk’s family lunch. This incurs jealousy in Marnie, who feels upstaged by Molly’s looks and takes a sudden interest in Kirk again. Stainer, ranking-obsessed, tells Kirk that on a scale from 1 to 10 with 10 meaning the most attractive and successful, he’s a 5, and Molly a 10, and that a relationship does not work if the difference is more than 2. Molly’s friend and business partner Patty (Krysten Ritter) is also surprised: she phoned Molly while on a date with Kirk to allow her an opportunity to make up an excuse to leave, but that was not needed.

In Molly’s house, while the two are making out, Kirk ejaculates in his pants, just before her parents arrive. While avoiding to show that he had ejaculated, he avoids standing up and quickly leaves to avoid Molly and her parents noticing what happened. This cools down the relationship, but when Kirk later explains during an airshow what happened, things are fine again. Molly’s former boyfriend Cam tells Kirk that Molly has a defect and to avoid saying that she is perfect.

During a date, Kirk suggests to Molly to throw a birthday birthday for her sister, Katie. After the party, both of them go to Molly’s place. Molly shows Kirk her webbed toes, which Kirk considers so minor that he decides that she is too perfect for him, and he breaks off the relationship. Kirk and Marnie resume their relationship and go on a family trip to Branson.

Stainer and Patty realize their mistake in telling Kirk and Molly it wouldn’t work out; the friends convince Kirk that he is "a 10" too. They pull Kirk off his plane as he tries to leave with his family and Marnie, while Patty brings Molly to the airport. Kirk rejects Marnie and reunites with Molly. Later, as a surprise, he takes Molly on a trip in a small plane, with himself being the pilot; he has taken flying lessons.
