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.

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

Josie Geller (the lovely Drew Barrymore) is an editor of a newspaper in Chicago who gets her first chance as reporter in a matter about the life of the high-school students. She is a dreamer that has never been kissed and wonders that the penguins have a perfect relationship (only one partner for the rest of their lives). She was not a popular high-school student. On the contrary, her brother Rob (David Arquette) was very popular in high school and became a looser in real life, regretting for not having a chance as a baseball player. She applies herself in high school to get the matter, followed by her brother, who decides to help her to be popular. Then both will have a second chance for their lives and Josie will find her enchanted prince. The plot is very predictable, silly and naive, but entertains. Drew Barrymore, with her face of child, is perfect for this type of role. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "Nunca Fui Beijada" ("Never Been Kissed")
