Storyline

Chicago Sun Times copy editor Josie Gellar (25), who was desperate to graduate from perfectionist copy editor to reporter, gets her chance when the goody owner orders the editor to cover the high-school scene by undercover. Josie, who was a frustrated, ridiculed nerd, gets a popular make-over from her drop-out, naturally funny brother Rob Geller. Both siblings find love and joys of youth again. But in Josie's case, it's sensitive bachelor teacher Sam Coulson, who enjoys sophisticated conversation. As the publication deadline approaches, the price of blowing their cover seems ever more daunting, yet inevitable unless she sacrifices her career. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

It is an issue in the movie that Josie is considerably older than her "high school crush" Guy (she is supposed to be 25, while he would be about 17), but actually, Drew Barrymore is 2 years younger than Jeremy Jordan, the actor who plays Guy. See more »

Goofs

When Gus and Anita voice their concerns about Josie's assignment, she says, "Neither of you think I can do this." Josie, a noted pedant, would know that when used as a pronoun "neither" is singular and would say, "Neither of you thinks I can do this." See more »

Love this film!
6 April 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a truly hilarious film and one that I have seen many times. Drew Barrymore is brilliant as Josie Geller, as is David Arquette as her brother. You cringe with embarrassment at the thought of her returning to high school as the film is a reminder of what high school was really like! Her outfits are wacky and weird, and it brings back memories of those who dressed a bit differently! The gorgeous Michael Vartan was adorable as the teacher (wish there had been teachers like that when I was at high school!) and Josie's boss is fantastic. This is a film you could watch again and again, with a fabulous sound track! One for all those at school in the 90's to watch!
