REVIEW: I Love You Beth Cooper
A quiet, reserved teen experiences a wild night to remember in I Love You, Beth Cooper, arriving on Blu-ray Disc (BD) and DVD November 3 from
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Chris Columbus (Home Alone films) and starring hot Hollywood sensation Hayden Panettiere (“Heroes”) in the title role, the film is based on a novel written by Emmy AwardÒ-winner* Larry Doyle (“The Simpsons”). When Denis Cooverman (Paul Rust; Semi-Pro), the geekiest guy in high school, proclaims his love for super-popular Beth Cooper during his valedictorian speech, everyone is... well... speechless! But the real shock comes that night when Beth shows up at Denis’ house with her two best friends to show him how the cool kids party. You’ll LOL as Denis tries to keep up with Beth — and stay away from her maniacal ex-boyfriend Kevin and his ticked-off pals. Plus, watch Denis and Beth take their hilarious relationship to a whole new level with the outrageous alternate ending you didn’t see in theaters!
Grove High School valedictorian Denis Cooverman (PAUL RUST)
has had quite an academic career...on paper, at least.
Superlative student, conscientious young gentleman and
patently obvious dork, Denis has played it safe and made it
all the way to graduation day without ever having really
experienced some of the joys of higher learning: breaking
curfew, destruction of property, over-consumption of
alcohol, fist fights, late nights, fast cars or faster women
(actually, women of any sort).
DVD: I Love You Beth Cooper is presented in
a widescreen format with a 1.85:1 aspect ration. The
transfer looks clean, judging from the watermark screening
received it is very difficult to determine the real quality
of the video, however I wont doubt that the final product
will be just fine. The picture is
complemented with a 5.1 Dolby digital sound with Spanish and English subtitles.
In terms of special
features the DVD includes side-splitting bonus features including an alternate ending, deleted scenes, Fox Movie Channel Presents In Character with Hayden Panettiere and Paul Rust, and features including “I Love You, Larry Doyle,” “We Are All Different, But That’s A Good Thing,” and the improvised song by Paul Rust “Peanut Butter Toast.”
film tries to play in the tradition of 80's teen comedies, but
it falls short for the most part. I was able to laugh in a few
of the scenes, however I was expecting more. This movie makes
for a good rental in the absents of other films.
