Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Anna Smith, Time Out
"The script by Larry Doyle, based on his novel, has some smart flashes, and a few of the young performers resemble real people and not the usual prefab teen idols."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"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."
‑ Simon Foster, sbs.com.au
"Sweet, funny, and smart in unexpected ways"
‑ Andrea Chase, Killer Movie Reviews
"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."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"The story quickly -- and I mean quickly -- devolves into an unimaginative high school retread."
‑ Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies
"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."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"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..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"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."
‑ Prairie Miller, NewsBlaze
"Mean-spirited and coarse with a shallow girl at its hollow heart, Beth Cooper is Superbad without the super."
‑ Neil Smith, Film4
"This is dreadful. This is a pathetic excuse for a movie."
‑ Ben Lyons, At the Movies
"A flat, tired rehash of teen movie story tropes, the film attempts to have it both ways by winkingly acknowledging its secondhand origins."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"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."
‑ Rubin Safaya, Cinemalogue.com
"Laughs are in equally short supply as interesting, much less likable, characters."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"This is pretty average stuff."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
