I love you, Beth Cooper is certainly meant for a teenage audience, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a quality movie. Is it predictable? Certainly. Is it a movie about broken stereotypes? Of course.
Nonetheless, it is still a quality story. The main characters are likable from the beginning and become even more likable as the story unfolds.
The movie has lots of funny scenes but only a few times did the audience laugh out loud.
Beth, Hayden Panettiere from HEROES, gives an excellent performance. She can say a lot with her expressions.
Denis, Paul Rust, who played the neardy kid, did quite well. He doesn’t have the awkward physical humor as well as Jim Cary, but then who does?
I really thought that Rich, Jack Carpenter, did the best job of all. I never got the sense that he was acting a role or putting on a performance. He is either very much like the character he plays or he is a fantastic actor. We’ll have to see him in some various roles to know which is which.
