Synopsis


Never Been Kissed
Many people wish they could go back to high school, knowing what they know as an adult; Josie Geller gets the chance to do just that in the comedy Never Been Kissed. Josie (played by Drew Barrymore) is a 25-year-old copy editor at a newspaper in Chicago. But it's her youthful looks as much as her journalistic skills that finally win her a writing assignment: she's ordered to enroll in high school posing as a teenager for a story on the state of America's youth. Trouble is, Josie was a hopeless nerd in high school (called "Josie Grossie" by her classmates); she had no idea of how to fit in with the cool kids, and she's hardly gotten any better at it in the seven years since graduation. While Josie makes fast friends with a bookish girl named Aldys (Leelee Sobieski), and also takes notice of her good-looking English teacher Mr. Coulson (Michael Vartan), she realizes for the sake of her story she has to infiltrate the cool girls' clique, which will be impossible without someone to give her a crash course in hipness. Josie's brother Rob (David Arquette), obviously the more style-conscious sibling, offers to sign up for the same school to act as the cool-guy friend she'll need to fit in, but just when Josie starts making headway (and starts enjoying high school for a change), her editor changes the focus of the story -- he now wants a feature on improper relations between teachers and students, which will not be good for her deepening friendship with Mr. Coulson. Never Been Kissed also features supporting performances from John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon and Jordan Ladd (the latter in a much more wholesome vehicle than her last cinematic visit to cinematic teen-town, Gregg Araki's Nowhere). ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Never Been Kissed is a wonderful, feel-good movie that will leave you with a huge smile on your face long after it's ended. I'm not a 'teen' and I still enjoyed it thoroughly. Drew Barrymore is great and totally believable as the nerd who is an ugly duckling on the outside but a swan on the inside, who returns to school for an undercover job as a reporter, where she ultimately finds herself. When I saw this at the pictures, the whole audience was totally absorbed by the film and vocally sympathized with Josie's humiliating flashbacks and laughed out loud at her charming awkwardness. David Arquette as her 'cool' and 'popular' brother was inspired casting and Michael Vartan as the teacher she falls for plays his part perfectly. These three actors alone make the film well worthwhile. Watch it and see.

    I'm the kind of person who likes getting nostalgic and rewatching movies from when I was younger. Never Been Kissed was one of those and I also like love story kind of movies so when I found this one on my way to checkout at Best Buy, I picked it up. Glad I found another blu-ray under $10 and enjoyed watching it once I did.

    Drew is a reporter who is forced to go back to high school to get the scoop on it. School was painful enough the first time around being the geeky outcast but is worst when your boss sends you back the 2' nd time to get the story on the in crowd. Being someone you are not & as phony as the people you are trying to imitate.

    The case is very cheap. Half plastic and half paper. Not sure how this is going to keep the disc safe from scratches. Funny movie, great picture quality. Would have liked a digital copy included.

    This DVD arrived damaged. I have ordered a few DVDs and the last few have all arrived damaged. Packaging needs to protect their products better.

    One the wife was wanting on blu ray. Story line was not to bad but not my favorite. I personally like the Drew and Sandler movies the best.
