I Love You, Beth Cooper

Writer-turned-director Chris Columbus (Gremlins, The Goonies, Home Alone, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone) directs this adaptation of Larry Doyle's novel, a genial throwback to the high school films of John Hughes. Newbie funny boy Paul Rust stars as a dorky valedictorian who recites the title phrase during his impromptu graduation speech. This sudden bout of honesty touches off a wild night of adventure with Ms. Cooper, the hottest cheerleader in high school (played by go-to cheerleader Hayden Panettiere of "Heroes"). PG-13.
