Product Description

Let's get this straight: Drew Barrymore started a production company to develop original scripts outside of Hollywood and the first project she chose to produce was this, a romantic comedy written by USC grads Abby Kohn and Mark Silverstein about a nerdy, virginal woman who returns to high school as an undercover reporter, finally gets to be popular, and falls in love. And Barrymore decided, as producer, that the perfect actress to play this virtuous, clean-cut, and downright annoying geek would be... Drew Barrymore? It's hard to believe that after The Wedding Singer Barrymore's not getting enough dopey, formulaic, predictable romantic comedies coming across her desk. The complete inability to buy Barrymore as unattractive, awkward, and unpopular ruins Never Been Kissed from the start, but it's doubtful a better actress could have saved it. The jokes fall flat, the romance between Barrymore and her English teacher (played by Michael Vartan) lacks chemistry, and the portrayals of high school and the newspaper newsroom is clichéd and uninspired (big surprise here: the director, Raja Gosnell, previously made Home Alone 3). Gosnell can't even give the gifted character actor, John C. Reilly, anything to do. Only David Arquette, who plays Barrymore's out-of-control brother, brings any energy to the film. --Dave McCoy

5.0 out of 5 stars one of drews finest April 19 2004
Format:DVD
I am a huge Drew Barrymore fan and I have been following her work forever I've probably seen every movie she's done and so far I like all the work she's done she's a very beautiful strong woman and talented honest actress.
The main star Drew Barrymore (Charlie's angels 1 & 2, the wedding singer, etc., etc.) plays Josie Geller, a 25-year-old who graduated school at the top of her class. She's never kissed a guy or even had a real boyfriend but she is the youngest copy editor at the Chicago Sun Times and wants to be a serious reporter. So she was very excited when she is assigned her very first job as a reporter to go back to high school as a regular teenager and find out about teenagers today. Then she remembers her own painful high school experience and it seems impossible that she will be able to fit in and get her story.
When she first starts going back to high school it looks like Josie's second experience of high school will be another nightmare until her brother enrolls himself in school also undercover as Josie's ex-boyfriend and quote 'good friend' unquote. He fits right in with the cool kids and makes his sister seem wild and cool to everyone. That's when things really get interesting at school and suddenly Josie is a huge part of the group of cruel but ridiculously attractive and popular teens but soon realizes for the first time in her life that maybe this isn't a group she wants to be a part of after all.
David Arquette (from the scream movies) plays Josie's 23-year-old brother Rob a popular fun-loving easygoing guy but is not as success-driven (he still lives with his parents, never went to college, works at what is called the "tiki post") as his sister. In my opinion David brings a fun and carefree vibe to every scene he's in.

5.0 out of 5 stars NEVER BEEN KISSED Nov. 29 2003
By Anna
Format:DVD
Never Been Kissed is a great comedy/drama. It not only keeps the audience on the edge of their seats but also keeps them laughing throughout the whole film as well. Drew Barrymore is amazing in her role as Josie Gelid. Josie Gellar is a "Chicago Sun Times" reporter, who is given an assignment to go back to High School undercover and try to fit in with the popular kids. Problem is Josie was always a nerd in High School who was always picked on and made fun of.
Josie Gellar goes in as an undercover reporter and is just reminded of her past, being the biggest nerd in school, until her brother, played by David Arquet, steps in and Josie is having the time of her life with the "popular kids". Watch how Josie falls in love, and desperately wishes to receive her first kiss. See what happens when she blows her position as an undercover reporter. This is an amazing comedy with great actors, and an awesome script. A great date movie with an awesome message which is just to have confidence in yourself and just about anything can happen.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome! Nov. 9 2003
By S. Lin
Format:DVD
I bought this movie without having seen it. I just like Drew Barrymore as an actress so I thought it couldn't be that bad. And it definitely wasn't! I laughed, cried, cringed, just every possible emotion.
Josie is a copy editor who's first assignment as a reporter is to write about teenagers, which is why she has to go back to high school. Now high school is not a good memory for her b/c she was always made fun of in high school...she is dreading it, but tries to change (i.e. put on makeup, new clothes, new car) in order to fit in. Plan goes awry though because those things are just NOT popular anymore. Oops...
She is once again the odd girl out until her cool, younger brother Rob (Arquette) also enlists in the school and makes her popular almost overnight. Like he says, "You just need one person to think you're cool and you're in. The others will be too scared to say anything."
There is also a thing developing between her and her English teacher, Sam, him finding her brilliant and unique, her finding him attractive and kind. But he holds back because he still thinks that she's a student of 17 years.
Prom is included, where Josie's true identity is revealed and Sam storms off feeling betrayed and made a fool of. Josie, now a confident woman because she has realized that it is what's in your heart that matters, writes about her experience as her article for the newspaper, in the end, asking Sam for a chance to make things right.
The ending was very sad, I was sobbing my eyes out. Drew gives a wonderful performance on the baseball mound. No words were needed as she waited for Sam to appear and give her her first kiss...all you needed to do was look into her eyes, welling up with tears threatening to spill over. The emotion was all there in those eyes and they make you feel for her so much, that you can't help but feel her despair. This one's a keeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing film for the light-hearted June 24 2003
Format:DVD
First of all everyone knows that Drew Barrymore is a very beautiful and talented actress. If it wasn't for her incredible portrayal of Josie in this movie, I don't think it would have been as good or believable. If you watch movies to be your own critic, this movie is not for you. But if you are looking for a nice movie to relax watching on a Saturday night, this is perfect. Drew plays Josie, a very clumsy woman who spent her whole life being a perfectionist and her high school years asking her teachers for extra homework. When she's offered her first report of her career, she is overwhelmed and very excited. But it's going to be tough. And yes, so we've all heard of the nerdy girl going back to school and becoming popular, but this movie takes that and does alot more with it. Drew's performance for one is amazing, and so is Leelee Sobieski's, who plays Josie's friend at the high school. I won't explain all about the movie, but I will say that this is a different, modern day fairytale about really finding out who you are. It may sound cliche, but this movie is alot different than the other romantic comedies out there. Just watch it, and then you will know what I mean.
