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.

Plot Summary

Romantic comedy starring Drew Barrymore and David Arquette. When journalist and former class nerd Josie Geller is sent undercover to the local high school to write a story about current teen trends, she soon discovers that little has changed and all the problems she experienced in her youth are about to be repeated.
