I Love You Beth Cooper (2009)


“You really need to get out more.” – Beth Cooper

Number of Times Seen – Twice (19 Mar 2010 and 20 Apr 2021)

Brief Synopsis – At his graduation, the unpopular valedictorian professes his love for the class queen hoping to never have regrets in life.

My Take on it – Fun idea that works better than expected.

The cast is mostly unknown which helps make many of them seem as if they are real people.

The story plays out like most high school style Rom-Com’s, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

The story does a nice job trying to explore what teenagers feel they are missing in their lives while at the same time wanting to be a part of the ‘in’ crowd.

Loved seeing Cynthia Stevens and Alan Ruck as the parents in this film especially given both of their own history with teen comedies in the 80’s.

The story isn’t very realistic and is extremely predictable yet still has a nice feel to it which helps keep it engaging and fun the whole way through.

Like with most films of this genre, they cross the line a few times with where they take certain aspects of the story, but the good thing is that they know not to linger there too long before returning to an acceptable level of it.

The trope has been used so often over the years but the valedictorian speech at the beginning is quite unique and helps give this film its own voice.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The name ‘Beth’ is short for Elizabeth, so Beth Cooper’s name would be Elizabeth Cooper, which also happens to be the name of the character Elizabeth “Betty” Cooper from the Archie comics. (From IMDB)

Rating – BAFTA Worthy (6/10)
