    Never Been Kissed is an amusing romantic comedy with Drew Barrymore. The movie hits the right notes
    and has a talented cast that includes Barrymore, Arquette, Reily and Molly Shannon. Barrymore and
    Arquette elevated the quality of the movie, without them and the rest of the cast this movie would've
    fell flat.

Her boss wants her to disguise herself as a teenager and sneak into college to do an investigative piece. The problem is that in her early teens, she hasn't had good experiences and has fears that they repeat and it causes her resignation. Starting with the fact that hardly a woman of 25 years would pass for a teenager, and more strenuous has never been kissed. Taking into consideration that is a fiction we get the part that is a romantic comedy, and especially in the 90s. I believe that in the epoch it worked well in a successful way, almost became a modern fairy tale. Full Review »

It doesn't always make the best use of the plot idea, I think they miss some good opportunities, but I was always entertained. A fun and harmless film. Full Review »
