Our Score
Drew Barrymore does what she does best - cute, funny romance - in this simple teen comedy. She plays a bumbling young copy editor on the Chicago Sun-Times who tries out as a reporter when she's sent under cover to a high school to find out what students get up to nowadays. It gives her the chance to rewrite her own painful school memories - she was the class nerd - and get that first memorable kiss she never had. She also falls for English teacher Michael Vartan, which sets off a rather predictable chain of events. Yet, thanks to Barrymore's captivating performance, a fun turn from David Arquette (as her slightly odd older brother) and a minor role for Leelee Sobieski, this is enjoyable fare.


A clumsy 25-year-old would-be reporter is given the chance to prove herself when she is sent on an assignment to get an inside take on high-school life. However, when she falls for an English teacher, she has trouble maintaining the facade of a calm and sophisticated young lady, as all the bad memories of her awkward younger days come flooding back. Romantic comedy, with Drew Barrymore, Michael Vartan and David Arquette.
