I Love You, Beth Cooper
Nerdy Buffalo Grove High School valedictorian Denis Cooverman proclaims his love for the most popular girl in school – Beth Cooper – during his graduation speech. Much to his surprise, Beth shows up at his door that very night and decides to show him the best night of his life.
Still love me?
No. No I do not. The movie is made competently and everything, but the humor is straight out of a mediocre network sitcom. They introduced one moment that was interesting for the characters but did absolutely nothing with it.
Paul Rust and Hayden Panettiere do the best they can, but they just can't magically make mediocre dialogue come out hilarious. If the film was better or worst I could write more about it, but as it is you can only say a film is mediocre so many ways.
Okay I love Hayden and will watch her in anything, but this film just seemed off. It was really violent and it was a made turn off as a viewer every time the Marine bully would basically try to kill this high school nerd. Speaking of, this kid looked mid 30's!!!
It was nice to see Ruck, but for the most part this film just annoyed me at how it wasted any humor it had and instead of making it charming, it seemed so mean spirited. And Beth Cooper is kind of a whore of a character to begin with.
This is one I recently borrowed from the library. It is not a bad film... I enjoyed it. Though I have seen better films in the genre. I did like seeing Hayden Panettiere in the film. I have liked her since first seeing her play the cheerleader in Heroes. Anyway... to keep this short and sweet... worth the time put in to watch it. Check it out if you get the chance.
Bland and ironically passionless. Everyone involved appears to be sleepwalking.
The most unlikeable protagonist in any movie I've ever seen.
Low-key rom-com that was a lot less silly and more poignant than I was expecting. Once you get past the first 30 minutes worth of stuff you've already seen in the trailers, it has a lot of heart. (Maybe this is snobby/mean of me, but it drives me NUTS when people laugh really hard at a joke that appeared in the trailer... how is it still that funny once you've seen it 30 times? Do these people not own TVs? And if they don't, how did they know about this movie?)
This movie ran hot and cold for it's entire duration. I would laugh out loud at one bit, then cringe at the stupidity of the next. Still, anything that gets me to laugh out loud more than once has to merit a "like".
Hayden Panettiere was quite fun in this.
Hayden Panennennenneitierrreeeneneeeennee is quite fit. Alright film. B
It's a film that genuinely surprised me when I first watched it and it surprised me again when I watched it again last night. I found it funny, sweet and quite touching and enjoyed it just as much on the second viewing.
It makes a change to have the usual "popular girl" character as someone who is actually quite sensitive, fun loving and kind. More often than not, that sort of character is usually a cliched "nobody understands me" person.
Certainly a film I'd watch again.
Not nearly what i expected, because it actually made me laugh. It made me laugh I still can't get over that. Plus when the dad said "What the F" I was thinking "Oh thats from Risky Business", and the friend after that said it was a quote from Risky Business and I freaked out just a little. Just a little.
The story of a nerdy goy who is in love with the hot cheerleader, which he lets the whole school know in his graduation speech while calling out others also. I mean it was different, not your usual nerdy-hot girl story which I didn't expect. So funny.
Awful, just bad humour with no redeeming features.
