Becky and I went to see the new movie I Love You Beth Cooper on Friday at the AMC theaters in Highland Ranch, CO with our friends Rod & Kimberly Tactaquin. The Rotten Tomatoes website at I Love You Beth Cooper
describes the movie as follows:
“I Love You, Beth Cooper chronicles the story of a nerdy valedictorian who proclaims his love for the hottest and 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. –© 20th Century Fox…”
This movie is incredibly stupid and ridiculous, but it’s also pretty darn funny. It’s much like some of the stupid comedies of the 1980’s. I mean, CaddyShack filmed in 1980 is hilarious, but by today’s standards it would be considered sophomoric and ridiculous. Which may be why so many people didn’t like this movie.
Becky didn’t like I Love You Beth Cooper that much. She didn’t completely dislike it, but she thought it was at best a rental. Rod, Kimberly and I on the other hand thought it was pretty funny. It’s not a great movie, so I have to agree with Becky.
I Love You Beth Cooper is by no means on the same level as Hangover or CaddyShack, but there are some pretty good laughs. They have the token gay guy, which they probably needed to get the film funded, that they didn’t need for the movie, but he was pretty funny in this film as a strange “movie buff”.
The main male character could have been in Revenge of the Nerds and any number of films as the “oddball” smart kid. It bugged me that they took God’s name in vain several times, which was not necessary. Parts of the film put the main character in situations that were embarrassingly stupid for him where you wanted to cover your eyes. The characters were completely nuts, but that’s what made it a funny film.
Beth Cooper is the pretty girl cheerleader played by Hayden Panettiere from the Hero’s television show and she does a good job in the movie playing her part. Ultimately, this is a movie you have to be in the mood to see and it probably is better as a Rental as Becky suggested.
