Never Been Kissed (1999) R1 Retail DVD
For those of us who went through the "Josie Grossie" stage, this movie is a welcome comedy, a sort of Revenge of the Nerds meets The Princess Diaries. Josie Gellar (Drew Barrymore), a 25-year-old copy editor/reporter, has never quite gotten over her traumatic high school years, replete with bad hair days and insensitive classmates. Understandably, she has mixed emotions when her boss, noticing how young she looks, decides Josie can go undercover and give "Sun" readers the latest scoop on high school life. So back to Fast Times at Ridgemont High... Not only is Josie anxious about this assignmentmore…, but she's worried about her personal life. At 25, Josie has never even kissed a guy (or rather, been kissed by a guy)--but she doesn't just want to kiss any guy, but someone really special.
While researching this high school expose, Josie has painful flashbacks as she witnesses how kids treat each other. (That a woman as pretty as Drew Barrymore would be willing to look as bad as she possibly can is sheer dedication to her art!) Through her older brother's influence on the popular kids (he's finishing up high school b/c he never got his diploma and earns coolness points as a local baseball phenomenon), Josie gets inducted to the alpha crowd and unwittingly slights her "uncool" (second-time around) high school friends. Josie enjoys her English class and surprises her teacher, uber-handsome Sam Coulson, with her love for words and knowledge on the subject. Meanwhile, the Sun eavesdrops on Josie and her high school adventures.
Sam (Michael Vartan), is noplussed by Josie's maturity yet apparent youth. When he learns that Josie is an undercover reporter, he becomes hurt and angry. Josie tries to apologize through the very tabloid that brought on her trouble--and readers anxiously await to see if Sam will meet Josie in a baseball stadium to deliver her first kiss before the appointed time.
(Let me interject my own two cents here: Michael Vartan is hot...he has my ideal body type, sigh...I was writhing with jealousy during the kissing scene!)
This movie is hilarious and well-written. It's been accused of being formulaic, but so what? It has a good message and is very funny.
My friends and I never tire of watching this movie, and the expression, "Josie Grossie" has taken on a life of its own. When we show pictures from our childhood to each other, we often qualify them as, "This picture was taken from my Josie Grosie years." (You know, glasses, braces, bad hair, the works...) Or, even in our grown-up years, we'll tell each other if we're feeling particularly Josie Grossie on a given day.
