In this movie clip (at 2:01), actor Jack Black says:
That was so intense I, like, can't even with this place.
What does he mean he can't even with the place?

"I can't even" is more typically used as a sentence fragment after some remark, like the person meant to finish the sentence as "I can't even believe that" or "I can't even imagine" or "I can't even talk any more about this." It's often said with frustration or sarcasm as if the speaker can't even finish speaking.
"That was so intense I, like, can't even with this place." would be more typically said as "This place was so intense, I can't even." In that clip, it's funny because the actor uses the expression without the normal pause at the end, instead filling in "with this place." It is definitely an unusual construct and indicates (to me) that he is flustered.
