I Love You, Beth Cooper (2009)

Mitchell

Silly, stupid movie with Hayden Panettiere (can you believe this is the little blonde girl in Remember the Titans? wow!) and a bunch of no-names. The critics and hoi polloi seem to be in agreement that it’s a bad picture, but I quite enjoyed it. I found it sweet, with some good moments for the actors to flex their chops. Almost nothing that happens, plot-wise, is believable, but the two primary characters themselves were likable and quite believable. Denis is the nerdy class valedictorian who takes the opportunity presented by his graduation speech to confess to a classmate that he has loved her since the seventh grade. She’s the most popular girl in school, of course, and the rest of the movie mostly involves Denis trying to run away from some of the people who took offense to his speech (because he doesn’t leave it at “I Love You Beth Cooper,” adding a few other thoughts about his classmates he’s been saving up) and getting to know Beth Cooper. Reid, I’d stay away from this one if I were you. 5/10
