Consensus: Heavily reliant on stereotypes and shallow teen comedy clichés, I Love You Beth Cooper is a humorless affair that fails to capture the charm of its source novel.

Time Out

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.

Christian Science Monitor

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.

Simon Foster

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.

The story quickly -- and I mean quickly -- devolves into an unimaginative high school retread.

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.

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...

This is dreadful. This is a pathetic excuse for a movie.

Los Angeles Times

A flat, tired rehash of teen movie story tropes, the film attempts to have it both ways by winkingly acknowledging its secondhand origins.

Rubin Safaya

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.

Not the trainwreck it's been advertised as but still nowhere near the term of "passable," I Love You, Beth Cooper feels like a forgotten relic… More

I Love You Beth Cooper is a terrible, unfunny, cliche, creepy, and boring comedy and is so bad that I could barely watch.

The movie sucks. Grade: C-

Studios who care more about money and less about substance and artistic distinction certainly had their tentacles in when this movie was getting greenlighted. I… More

So incredibly bad and annoying. It takes all the bad parts of high school nostalgia movies and throws them into one. The characters are corny beyond belief and… More
