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.

Surprsingly well written coming of age movie. Script and acting not bad at all. Not bad script as a unpopular guy gets the Hottest Girl thats very popular. High School at at Its best. Only buy if you like this type of movie but acting is great the script moves and this better one of thse movies need to watch.

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.

I can watch this movie over and over. I loved her in Heros. It starts off good, the middle is great , and the end is worth it.

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.

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?

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.
