Product Description

Buffalo Grove High School valedictorian Denis Cooverman (PAUL RUST) has had quite an academic career...on paper, at least. Superlative student, conscientious young gentleman and patently obvious dork, Denis has played it safe and made it all the way to graduation day without ever having really experienced some of the joys of higher learning: breaking curfew, destruction of property, over-consumption of alcohol, fist fights, late nights, fast cars or faster women (actually, women of any sort). But all of that is about to change, and all by uttering five little words: "I LOVE YOU, BETH COOPER.]High school valedictorian lives life finally.]0]]Chris Columbus]]]Hayden Panettiere]Paul Rust]Lauren London]Samm Levine]Jack Carpenter]Lauren Storm]Alan Ruck]Cynthia Stevenson]Andrea Savage]

Amazon.com

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

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.

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.

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 saw this on HBO and it was goofy enough with memories of high school that I bought it. Sort of a thinking man's version of Fast Times At Ridgemont High. It really is aimed at a younger crowd, but has allot of "feel good" to it that spans multiple ages.No Oscar winners here. Just basically good clean fun.

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 admit that the main reason I watched this movie was because of Hayden Panettiere, what's not to like! The movie actually turned out to be a really good coming of age movie with some really strange twists. It kind of reminds me of the old Porky movies in some ways. The humor is pretty akin to those days, good cast, good story. If you are in the mood for a good comedy with a twist then I recommend this movie. It wasn't my first choice but I'm glad I checked it out.

I believe that this move was intended to be fun to watch and raise many of the issues that high school students confront at some point in their school career. It succeeded in all that it set out to do, and I enjoyed the show. While not the best comedy or comedy/drama or coming of age film you'll ever see, it's absolutely worth the price of admission! In a tough grading system, this one earns a 'B' and is far better than your average film.
