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!

    Is Cheerleading a Sport? Vote!

    • Yes - and cheerleaders are great athletes too.
    • It's more of a hobby - not a sport.
    • Who cares? Cheerleading sucks.
