At first, Josie is thrilled with the opportunity until she remembers her nickname from years ago: "Josie Grossie!" Can a former clueless nerd navigate the hallways of high school without tripping over her own feet?
Cast & Crew
Drew Barrymore's virtuoso performance smooths over the plot holes.
The most exhilarating American movie I have seen this year -- which isn't saying much.
While Never Been Kissed belongs heart and soul to Barrymore, Sobieski's natural poise and assurance reminds us that her own prime time is not so very far away.
The movie's screenplay is contrived and not blindingly original, but Barrymore illuminates it with sunniness, and creates a lovable character.
The film succeeds on the astonishing merits of its leading lady and her superior supporting cast.
A lively tribute to the awkwardness and power of adolescent girlhood.
A likable romantic comedy with an engaging premise and strong cast!
