    The story is timeless; this could have taken place when Doyle graduated in '76 -- or any year, really, since the effects of high school linger throughout adult life and nerds are forever.

  • Kyle Smith

    Isn't especially hilarious, but it has a warm sense of humor instead of a string of gross-out jokes. It'll be a cable mainstay.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Has some smart flashes, and a few of the young performers resemble real people and not the usual prefab teen idols.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Of the two co-stars, what I can say is that I’m looking forward to their next films.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The problem with I Love You, Beth Cooper is that aside from Denis' speech at the start, everything else seems familiar.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    Isn't a terrible addition to the teen coming-of-age party movie catalog. It just feels dated.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Jason Buchanan

    For a teen film to resonate, it has to feel honest, and I Love You, Beth Cooper simply comes off as too paint-by-numbers to achieve any level of emotional authenticity.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    This leaden teen comedy is meant to be lively, but it's curiously bland.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Panettiere, I’m sad to report, is a dud as the title character, a supposed wild thang who never rises above the level of runty, obnoxious mall chick, down to the roll-on tan.

  • James Berardinelli

    There's a sense that a much better movie is trying to get out but it never attains escape velocity.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Stephen Cole

    The movie feels like something parents want their kids to see. Harold and Kumar wouldn't want anything to do with Beth Cooper or Denis Cooverman. You're probably not going to like them much either.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    Since that gifted, attractive performer is Hayden Panettiere, who has already won a wide following for "Heroes," it's a wonder that the studio hasn't been more heavily promoting her appearance in this decent, genial youth comedy. After all, she does play, ah, Beth Cooper.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Staff (Not credited)

    Painfully unfunny, I Love You, Beth Cooper is more likely to elicit the opposite reaction.

    Empire Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Moves along, taking two steps backward into crassness for every clever or just plain sweet moment it offers. Although many of the movie's problems seem to be rooted in the script, Columbus has such a heavy touch that he sabotages nearly every scene. Full Review
  • Mark Olsen

    Not a remake -- it just feels like one.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    The film quickly turns unintentionally, and unrelentingly, awkward.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Ella Taylor

    Lumbering comedy, adapted by Larry Doyle from his own novel.

    NPR Full Review
  • Stephen Farber

    Although the teenage audience is notoriously undiscriminating, it's hard to imagine many kids turning out for this laugh-free comedy.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Ends up as little more than a recursive footnote to the infinitely better up-all-night teen comedies of, you guessed it, John Hughes.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Drab and incoherent teen comedy.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Peaks early -- like, during the first three minutes -- and rapidly goes downhill from there.

    Variety Full Review
  • Ruth McCann

    Perhaps the best thing that can be said about I Love You, Beth Cooper is that the title is correctly punctuated. Beyond that, the movie is a disappointingly flabby teen flick.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    A more accurate title might be "Sub-Bad."

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Aiming for the heartfelt hilarity of "Superbad," I Love You, Beth Cooper is just super bad.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    A funny thing happened to Larry Doyle's 2007 debut novel on the way to the multiplex. It turned into its own ring of coming-of-age comedy hell.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    There’s hardly an authentic second in the film.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    Joyless, offensively stupid end-of-high-school farce.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    I was stunned to learn that "Beth Cooper" was adapted by former "Simpsons" writer Larry Doyle from his young-adult novel and directed by "Harry Potter" helmer Chris Columbus. Rarely have two seasoned Hollywood professionals produced something so painfully, amateurishly, relentlessly unfunny.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    This unfunny, unoriginal, charmless teen comedy is so stunningly awful from start to finish, it's amazing to think its director has made a single film before, much less a dozen.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Don R. Lewis

    Sloppy, not funny, downright stupid, ridiculous as well as horribly themed and shot.
