Never Been Kissed
Review by Ross Anthony

Drew Barrymore is a lonely, 25 year old, copy editor for the Chicago Suntimes. When a sudden firing leaves an undercover reporting job open, her psycho chief editor impulsively promotes her to the task of impersonating a 17 year old student at Glen South High.

Barrymore is so giddy about playing undercover that she forgets what a nightmare her own high school experience was. In her naiveté, she also neglects to sniff out a spicy hot story with which to quench her fuming editor.

This is a sappy movie. It knows it is and it doesn't try to hide that fact. It's also not without implausibilities and moments of bad acting (due in a large part to her handsome teacher/ love interest). But it's fun. It's silly teenage "Revenge of the Nerds" fun. And it's spirited. Barrymore's vitality just won't let you write off this corny picture. She's adorable, charming and so is her performance as the girl who gets to do high school all over again.

Starring Drew Barrymore and David Arquette.
Directed by Raja Gosnell.
Produced by Sandy Isaac and Nancy Juvonen at Fox 2000 Pictures.
