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

Josie's assignment also resembles the experiences of Cameron Crowe, who went back to his old high school at 21 and wrote a novel and screenplay based on his experience there, which eventually became the movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982). See more »

Goofs

Josie Geller is 25 when she enters the senior class of 1999's Prom. This would have made her, if she graduated at the age of 17/18, a graduate of the class of 1991/1992. Her prom dress flashback is a 1980s outfit. She was invited to the "senior" prom, which means her date would have had to be a senior or junior to invite her, and since he was her classmate, she would also have been a junior or a senior. So, she would have graduated during the 90s, yet her prom dress is in 1980s style, and any flashbacks of her "Josie Grossie" lifestyle show 80s outfits and play to Cyndi Lauper's "She Bop" - a hit in 1984, 8 years before Josie would have graduated, and at least four years before she was old enough to be in High School.

Good movie, but there is space for "but"
31 October 2005 | by aurapraSee all my reviews

I saw this movie for a first time years ago, when it was still new and I was satisfied. It's a great Hollywood make-belief story for teenagers. However, it's not lifelike. As much as you would want to believe it, these stories never happen. That's why it is irritating to watch movies like that. They play with teenagers' minds, just imagine how many girls still in high schools believed in that magic and got disappointed. I wouldn't recommend this movie to my little sister or my cousin. The director should have spent some more time thinking about the plot instead of thinking about actors. Yes, they (actors) were good, but the idea isn't worth a 10. There are a lot of films about teenagers. So why don't we make a better one?
