If you're planning on watching some really top grade comedy films this is not your movie. But if a friend of yours harmlessly asks "wanna watch "I Love You, Beth Cooper"" don't say no.
Its problem is that It's a fun movie that just seems like it could have so much better. The film's script, heavily based on the critically acclaimed novel, noticeably benefits from its smart humour. Unfortunately, the humour doesn't play out that way the whole time because of some bad line delivery. This is probably the director's fault. The material in the script seems like the kind of material that could have benefited a lot from good execution and its just a shame. It was the kind of humour that could have been quoted from a cult following for ages to come. Ala Wayne's world and mike Myers.
The bad line delivery is also a fault of the cast, that sometimes works and sometimes doesn't, notably the girls.
What it comes down to, is the film is a cheesy PG-13 teen comedy that works, just not to its full potential. There are a lot better movies out there, but I still enjoyed the movie.
It gets a seven out of ten.
