It so desperately wants to be an '80s high-school romp, yet comes across as a film made by people who have never even seen one.

It's nothing but a painful, tedious, cruel, and mean spirited exercise in sadism that actually tries to transform child molestation in to a comedic bit...

The movie could have been much improved by slicing a few frames from each shot, and reining in Rust's weirdness just a bit%u2014so as to not contribute to the lumbering, hallucinogenic feel of his initial characterization.

A bimbo pride teen comedy whose cheerleader girl entourage of shallow sexpots gets enlightened too, about how 'useful' and even entertaining smart geeks with tons of brainy information to spare can be, even if totally lacking in hunk appeal.

Laughs are in equally short supply as interesting, much less likable, characters.

So much emphasis is put on pratfalling that it leaves the sensitive moments completely stranded, unable to make themselves felt for fear they may get a punch in the mouth.

Mean-spirited and coarse with a shallow girl at its hollow heart, Beth Cooper is Superbad without the super.

This is pretty average stuff.

This adaptation of Larry Doyle's bestseller is too soul-starved and lethally bland to warm the cockles.

An undistinguished work.

We've seen it a million times before, and better. The situations are forced, the script is weak, the pace drags and, frankly, it just isn't funny enough.
| Original Score: 2/5

A sexed-up, dumbed-down romp that can't decide whether to please undemanding adults, sniggering adolescents or naughty children who shouldn't be watching in the first place.

Allan Hunter
Daily Express (UK)
August 24, 2009
The mixture of obvious jokes and winsome sentiment pretty much robs the film of any guilty pleasure value it might have provided.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
Toby Young
Times (UK)
August 21, 2009
The real problem is that it doesn't have any heart. This is by-the-numbers film-making in which even those moments when the characters step off the merry-go-round to catch their breath feel manufactured.

There's the potential for 'Superbad'-style comedy when Denis and his pal go on the run with Beth and friends, but the pace is slow and lines fall flat thanks to long pauses and hammy delivery.

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

Christopher Tookey
Daily Mail (UK)
August 21, 2009
The movie is cringe-worthy when trying to be humorous, and laughable when it attempts belatedly to make us care about these characters with the depth and humanity of wet cardboard. I hate you, pathetic high school movie.

A mirth-free endurance test, like holding your breath underwater.

Because other than HP looking cute in next to no clothing, this film is a total waste of time. The jokes range from crude, to daft, to offensive. And none of them are funny.
