Product Description

Never Been Kissed

Amazon.ca

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

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.

I thought that Never Been Kissed was more cute than funny and above all else, O.k. I wasn't thrilled about this one but it wasn't a snoozer or a wash out either.
Drew Barrymore is Josey a Copy Editor for the Chicago Sun Times that gets the assignment to pose undercover as a student and unveil the truth about teens today. Thinking that this was the ultimate assignment, she's so happy that she has to tell her brother Rob (David Arquette). Rob then reminds her what high school was like for her and then she realizes that she may have made a mistake. It's a total fluff cutesy romantic comedy of going from geek to sheik.
I wasn't all too thrilled with this because I saw the humor in it, but it really didn't make me laugh out loud or anything. As far as comedy goes, I thought it was fair. I'll give it that the physical comedy in this movie was really good. In myopinion, I thought that it was a better romantic comedy if anything ekse because it was really cute and fluffy with Josey's love interests.
Normally I wouldn't say this about a Drew Barrymore movie but I think this one is renter first (if you're looking for a laugh). Like I said, it's funny but it's not laugh out loud funny. If you're looking for a romantic comedy, than sure! This is a great romantic comedy (date movie if you will). If you're looking for a good, cute, touching film, than Never Been Kissed is a great one for that.

I concur with many of the other reviewers. This movie is not realistic, but it wasn't really meant to be. Though I'm fairly indifferent to her in other movies, I thought Drew Barrymore did a fine job in this one, and I find her completely believable as a nerd. The romance between her and Sam Coulson was done very subtly (as it would have to be--after all, if they had had a teacher coming on to someone he thought was an eighteen year old student, the situation would have been a bit disturbing, rather than sweet), but deserved more time in the movie. In fact, that is the only real problem I have with the movie (other than the preachy speech at the end). I've noticed that the trailer shows at least three segments that were not in the movie (two of which are between Josie and Sam). I assume that these scenes were cut, but would like to know why and would also like to know how to get them. Many DVDs feature cut scenes as special features, and generally explain why they were cut. Why wasn't this done?
Despite these relatively minor complaints and the fact that the film has little intellectual value, I have to say that Never Been Kissed is one of the most enjoyable movies I have ever seen. For pure entertainment value, it is a great choice.

While the plot is not airtight, Never Been Kissed succeeds because it does not try to be anything other than what it is--a quirky, fun romantic comedy. I adore Drew Barrymore, and she is wonderful in this movie, allowing us to see her as a pitiful, geeky teenager, a plain and mousy young lady, and ultimately as a beautiful, self-confident woman. Josie Geller (Barrymore) is a copy editor at a Chicago newspaper who desperately wants to be a reporter. The eccentric head of the newspaper selects her to go back to high school undercover and produce a story about today's teenaged youths. Excitement turns to horror as Josie flashes back to her torturous high school days as "Josie Grossie," but she puts all of her effort into fitting in with her new classmates. She eventually "transitions" from geek-dom to join the cool group and develops a real connection with her English teacher Mr. Coulson (Michael Vartan from TV's "Alias"). Predictably, things go screwy on prom night, but Josie manages to deliver a story that has all of Chicago talking.
The flashbacks to Josie's teenaged years, especially the prom night fiasco, are incredibly touching and painful to watch. The chance to go back to high school and be one of the cool, popular people is almost every geek's ultimate fantasy; as this movie shows, though, such acceptance by your teenaged peers does not guarantee happiness--what matters most is being true to yourself and to your real friends. The love story component of the movie ends up seeming a little rushed and could have used a little more foundational structure, but its culmination is a beautiful, heartwarming thing. Along the way, there are plenty of laughs, as Josie's attempts to fit in at high school are both pitiful and hilarious.
