Can so so relate
Very sadly, I can relate to this movie, as I'm 17, and have yet to be kissed, so I really feel for Josie. It's been a while since seeing this film, but to write this review I re-watched it, and remembered everything I loved about it.
Drew Barrymore is a great actress, and this role suited her really well at the time. The chemistry between Sam and Josie was really good, and Michael Vartan was an excellent actor in this.
I loved the storyline too - as i said up there, I could relate, and it's rare you find a film you can completely relate to.
All over - I loved it. 7/10
