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
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 »

All I can tell you is that when you're my age, guys will be lined up around the corner for you.
You have to say that because you're my teacher.

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
