As I previously mentioned in Making the Grade, over the years I have come up with a grading system when it comes to rating a ‘Teen Comedy.’ Essentially the system is a simple method of providing review in such a manner that no words could be lifted and taken out of context in any manner.
For example, When I say the movie ‘Clueless’ is an A+ any reasonable person, familiar with traditional grading scales used throughout the vast majority of US education systems, could easily deduce that I do in fact think it is a quality movie. On the other hand, saying something like “Hayden Panettiere delivers an unbelievable, less than riveting, poor porformance,” in reference to the less than average film I Love You, Beth Cooper could lead to someone simply carefully lifting certain words to say ‘Hayden Panettiere delivers”…JrWorthy, Bums Logic.
My point is there is no way anyone could spin my grade of ‘D’ for I Love You, Beth Cooper. The only reason it doesn’t totally fail is the split second shot of Hayden’s side boob. Sure she is small and looks like a little kid but she is legal.
