my thoughts

Such a sweet, sweet movie… Okay, not really but it’s very funny. Who would’ve thought a Valedictorian will be a bit dumb? (Not that I’m judging) I mean, the confession thing was fine but humiliating people? Really? That’s how his, or their, misadventures began.

Kevin, Beth Cooper’s boyfriend and also the one Denis Cooverman referred to as the loser who dates high school student, was kind of freaking out that he wanted to beat the life out of Denis. Although at times, it seemed very illogical because he, of all, can’t move on from what Denis said. Like, the others already moved on bro. But maybe it was because he’s drunk and under the influence of some drug. Now, now. That just made the situation worse. Beth, Denis, Rich, Treece, and Cammy’s misadventures were really fun. It was like an unplanned roadtrip with a very reckless driver, *drumrolls* BETH. While on the trip, escaping Kevin, Denis made some realizations like “She is not Beth Cooper”; like she doesn’t who this girl he is with. Well, I guess he doesn’t totally know her because it was like the only time they spoke and the fact that he’s been behind her since 7th grade doesn’t really count.

I do love the storyline because it shows the American lives. I found it shocking that they preferred to spend the rest of their graduation day partying with other people than being with their family for that one special day. They were partying, making out, and in Beth, Denis, Rich, Treece, and Cammy’s case, trying to make it through the night alive. I am very much used to celebrating this with the family. Oh, well. The theme of the movie may be cliché, a nerd falling for a popular girl in school he hasn’t spoken to. A lead cheerleader and a debate team captain. But, it isn’t all cliché though. Trust me. It just made the movie interesting. And the ending wasn’t all bad. I actually loved it because it speaks reality. I just really like how the movie went, but still disturbed with Kevin’s attitude. Apart from that, I have no other words but damn, nice movie.
