At a glance: ‘I Love You Beth Cooper’


A nerdy high-school valedictorian proclaims his love for the hottest girl in school (Hayden Panettiere).

Running time/rating: 1:42; rated PG-13 for crude and sexual content, language, some teen drinking and drug references, and brief violence

What they’re saying: “Somewhere inside ‘I Love You, Beth Cooper,’ there lies a high-school comedy in the same vein as the great John Hughes movies of the 1980s. Under the staggeringly mediocre direction of Chris Columbus, it never springs to life.” – Christy Lemire, Associated Press
