I Love You, Beth Cooper

Home Alone and Mrs Doubtfire director Chris Columbus spins us a yarn about Denis Cooverman - a superb young gentleman, an over-achieving  valedictorian, a patently obvious dork. Denis has played it safe his whole life, and feeling the itch to get more out of life he proclaims his love for the hottest and most popular girl in school – Beth Cooper (Heroes' Hayden Panettiere) – during his graduation speech. Much to his surprise, Beth shows up at his door that very night and decides to show him the best night of his life.

Peaks early -- like, during the first three minutes -- and rapidly goes downhill from there.

A would-be blend of John Hughes and American Pie that can’t find the right balance between heart and other body parts. It’s a madcap journey for sure, but one that ends up mired in predictable hugging/learning territory.

Drab and incoherent teen comedy.

Aiming for the heartfelt hilarity of "Superbad," I Love You, Beth Cooper is just super bad.

Of the two co-stars, what I can say is that I’m looking forward to their next films.

Not a remake -- it just feels like one.

Although the teenage audience is notoriously undiscriminating, it's hard to imagine many kids turning out for this laugh-free comedy.

Painfully unfunny, I Love You, Beth Cooper is more likely to elicit the opposite reaction.
