I thought it was slightly over the top, but only slightly. The actress who plays his girlfriend did an amazing job of that, though - I feel like there's a lot of skill involved in being an actress who's doing not only an excellent job of playing a somewhat shallow and self-centered woman in an acting class, but also portraying that woman's usually-subpar acting skills, complete with moments where she rises above her usual level to shine. (E.g. in the Macbeth scene in I think episode 7.)
