Balls Out

Jake Lacy, the casually charming costar of last year’s Obvious Child, has deft comic timing and a sweet presence. Balls Out proves all he needs is a better agent. He plays a fifth-year college senior seeking one final thrill with his intramural football team while walking the line between his overbearing fiancée (a wasted Kate McKinnon) and a comely new girl (Nikki Reed). There’s some chuckleworthy meta-commentary about the absurdity of sports movies, but Balls Out feels more like a long sketch than a feature. C+
