I Love You, Beth Cooper is every teenage boys fantasy. Declaring your love to a girl that’s way out of your league. I’ve said before on my blog that I have a secret obsession with cheesy high school movies. And that I usually watch them by myself. I Love You, Beth Cooper caught my attention many years ago when it first came out. I’ve been wanting to see it ever since. I Love You, Beth Cooper is about a nerdy unattractive valedictorian who proclaims his love for popular attractive cheerleader Beth Cooper during his speech. He also tells off the school bullies and mean girl. Not just that, he also tells his best friend to admit that he’s gay (a running gag throughout the movie). To his surprise, Beth Cooper actually talks to him and agrees to go to his house party. Which in turn leads to her and her friends spending the whole night with them. I’m not saying a nerd can’t win over a cheerleader, but there’s a serious suspension of disbelief here. I had a crush on a cheerleader when I was in school (we actually talked though), so I can relate to that. Most people complained that the movie was overly reliant on cliches and stereotypes. It is, but call me crazy, I actually enjoyed the movie. It can get a little cringy, but I felt like the actors were trying more than anyone gave them credit for. I also think the high school cliches were intentional. Lets just call I Love You, Beth Cooper a guilty pleasure.
