Denis Cooverman uses his high school valedictorian speech to tell his crush how he feels about her—but is Beth Cooper really worth all his reverence? Check out Kidzworld’s review of I Love You, Beth Cooper to find out!

After Denis’s impassioned speech, a flattered Beth Cooper (played by Hayden Panettiere) and her gaggle of girlfriends show up at Denis’s house to show him the night of his life. Unfortunately, she has a mean military boyfriend and a bit of an attitude problem. As the night progresses, Denis starts to realize that his love for Beth is based on nothing but shallow observations—he knows she’s hot but he doesn’t know anything about her character.

Based On The Book

Larry Doyle (who wrote some classic episodes of The Simpsons) set out to chronicle his geekier days by writing a novel designed as an homage to classic teen romantic comedies. The film rights were bought before the book was even published and now the movie version of I Love You, Beth Cooper takes its place among the teen flicks it honors.

The Bottom Line

I Love You Beth Cooper plays with stereotypical high school characters—the hot cheerleader, the dumb jock, the geek with a heart of gold—but the movie never gets beyond cliché scenarios and the raunchy jokes that may have worked in the book, but just fall flat on screen. This one’s a rental at best, or better yet, pick up the book instead!

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

    "It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

    “Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
