I Love You Beth Cooper; review

Updated on July 25, 2009

Save Your Money

This was the longest hour and a half I've experienced in while. I Love You Beth Cooper was a typical teen flick, complete with graduation scene and rampaging, hormonal bullies.

The story begins with the class brainiac giving a commencement speech. He isn't great looking but he's smart. Has felt empty throughout high school because he adored secretly a gal named Beth Cooper, the head cheerleader and never told her how he felt. He decides that he will profess his love for her at graduation during his speech. The rest of the movie combines this girl, her friends, Beth's outraged boyfriend who pummels the young man every chance he gets and the geek's best friend who spends the entire movie trying to decide if he is really gay or not.

Beth decides to show up for his "party" (a party of two-he and his buddy) with her gal pals and the rest of the movie is a series of escapes from her raging boyfriend. We do catch glimpses of how Beth is a "real" person; confused and sad that her whole life of popularity which is wrapped up in high school is now coming to an end. There are even a few times when you feel the film is truly going to get "real" and have some type of true plot but it doesn't happen.

Perhaps, it is my age that has caused me to view this film as a waste of time and money. However, I typically enjoy films such as these and find humor in them. It just felt as if everyone tried too hard to make this film work. There is definitely raw talent with some of the young actors in this film. However, Hayden (Beth) was depicted mostly as a sex object throughout the film and she was hard to relate to as a true person with the brain she obviously possessed.

I suppose that young high schoolers will relate somewhat to this film. The older you are, I believe you will see the silliness more than the movie. Out of five stars, I give I Love You Beth Cooper 1.5 stars.

      Don't miss it because of my review! I am older and while I enjoy films with teens in it, I just found this one to be kinda unbearable. Everyone's taste is different...I would wait for the video however; it only lasted a week in the theater around here.
