Editorial Reviews

Director Chris Columbus (Home Alone, two Harry Potter films, Mrs. Doubtfire) has a way with the young folk. I Love You, Beth Cooper is a light, frothy high school romp that showcases teen angst and manages to deliver some real belly laughs. Hayden Panettiere, star of Heroes, has the time of her life as the title character, riffing on the stereotype of Popular Girl with Hidden Bad Streak. As her lovelorn would-be suitor, Denis, Paul Rust is both nerdy but pretty fearless in his acting and in his pratfalls. Denis decides to announce his long-held love for Beth from the podium as he delivers the high school valedictory speech. Beth, initially horrified, decides she can have some fun with Denis as a worshipful accessory. Along the way, each learns a little about who the other person really is--and yes, there are some "growth" moments. But the fun is in the vixen Beth and the dorky Denis interacting. Denis holds a pile of junk food in a convenience store as they shop, and Beth says, "Yum!" Denis rolls his eyes, saying, "My mom says 'yum.'" Beth, dripping with put-on seduction, replies, "Yuuuummmm." Denis: "Not like that." As a frothy teen comedy, I Love You, Beth Cooper goes to the head of the class. --A.T. Hurley

Product Description

When Denis (Rust), the geekiest guy in high school, proclaims his love for super-popular Beth Cooper (Panettiere), during his valedictorian speech, everyone is...well... speechless! But the real shock comes that night when Beth shows up at Denis’ house with her two best friends to show him how the cool kids party.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Pleasant Surprise October 26, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
With the characteristics listed that led to its PG-13 rating you might think that I Love You, Beth Cooper would be piece of crap. But, the trailer had hooked me so I checked it our anyway. I was quite pleasantly surprised.

Denis Cooverman (Paul Rust) is the valedictorian of Buffalo Glenn High School. He is obviously a smart kid for in addition to his class standing as he has been accepted into a premed program at Stanford University and he is the captain of the debating team. On the downside he isn't very good looking, isn't an athlete, and isn't very successful with girls. He has had a long time crush on the head cheerleader, Beth Cooper (Hayden Panettiere), but has been too shy to speak to her. Besides she has a boyfriend in the army who perhaps just might be special forces material.

Denis has a very sexually confused friend, Rich (Jack Carpenter), who everyone else thinks is gay. Rich puts Denis up to telling Beth what he really thinks during his valedictory speech. This was clearly out of line. While he is on a roll he also tells what he thinks of everyone else including Beth's boyfriend who is on leave for the event, the school bully, and the schools rich [...]. Finally he suggests that his Rich embrace his presumed sexuality.

This leads to several reactions the most encouraging for Denis is that Beth speaks to him and "lets him live." Denis manages to invite her to his graduation party before being assaulted by her very angry boyfriend. Being spared serious bodily harm by the intervention of the school principal, Denis and Rich go home to their party which seems to be only the two them. Then surprisingly Beth with her two sidekicks Cammy (Lauren London) and Treece (Lauren Storm) actually show up to the party.

Great teen romantic comedy. The plot is predictable but the funny moments gets you through the experience with a smile on your face. Beth Cooper is every boy's high school crush they wished they had kissed.

5.0 out of 5 stars F***ing Hilarious July 7, 2013
By Jallen
I love Beth Cooper more than Dennis. This is such a great coming of age film and I am shocked and saddened by the outpouring of hate others are writing. Hayden Panettiere is amazing as always, and the other characters are great too. I've watched the film five times and each time I continually laugh. The film is just so awkward that it's funny, and not just funny, it's hilarious. The ending always warms my heart. It is definitely worth a watch and I highly recommend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars But I hate you Beth Cooper. . . . August 14, 2012
No, I wasn't foolish enough to buy this movie. It was on "free" TV, and I forgot to change the channel. So in the backgound I had to endure this stuff.

I always wonder: Didn't writers or directors ever go to high school? 'Cause if they had, they would know that all of these movies - well, at least most of them - are so fake and unlikely that those writers and directors would cringe themselves if they knew the truth. Let's see; what's the template for these movies?. . . .

Geek dude meets hot chick; hot chick warms up to geek dude; a contrived scenario ensues allowing hot chick to realize geek dude is actually a good guy; geek dude ends up with hot chick. OK; so maybe the dude doesn't always end up with the hot chick, but he has a chance. (And no. This is not a spoiler because you've seen this film before a thousand times, even if you haven't seen it even once.)

And why do people like films such as these? Well, I don't like them, but some people must because they keep getting made. But I have a theory: guys want to at least dream that they can trade up to a babe; and women want to feel better about themselves - precariously through the female lead - feeling as if they actually have a heart, and actually are willing to look past weaknesses that guys have, and might be willing to go out with them. In real life, they might even marry them! Yeah. Happens all the time. Not.

Phooey. Should we go one star here?

2.0 out of 5 stars Hayden + Nails + Chalkboard March 26, 2010
By C. Chow
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Hayden + Nails + Chalkboard

I've said Hayden Panettiere could rake her nails across a chalkboard for 90 minutes and it would still make a great movie. Apparently this inspired director Chris Columbus.

'I Love You Beth Cooper' isn't just a bad rip off of "wild girl falls in love with shy guy" which we've seen over and over and over and over and over and over again. ('Risky Business' 'Girl Next Door') IT IS NAILS ON A CHALKBOARD from beginning to end.

The screenplay is almost as bad as a Stephanie Myer book. Almost. I laughed three or four times total. The jokes are plain unfunny and predictable. The bullies show up for a fight. What a shock, Hayden saves the day by crashing a car into the house.

Even worse, the injuries. People being run over by cars or falling off of buildings is funny because it's unreal and ridiculous. People having real accidents and spurting blood out of their fingers, mouth, and nose, isn't funny. It's nauseating. Is this a teen comedy or is Chris Columbus remaking his 'Homes Alone' films with more blood?

Hayden's nails on a chalkboard might be entertaining but it's star Paul Rust's nails that we have to put up with for 90 minutes. Is this his real voice or is he trying to outdo Jerry Lewis' "Laaaaaddddaayyy"? Either way he far out ranks Sandra Bullock, Rosie Perez and Fran Dresser as more annoying than a car alarm. Seriously. It will be days before I can erase his screeching voice from my mind!!!

Another sign of doom is that this is a raunchy teen comedy rated PG-13. DOOM!

Whatever falling out Chris Columbus had with the studio whom kicked him off the 'Harry Potter' series he has really sunk to the lowest level of low.
