Movie propaganda

Josie Geller (Drew Barrymore) wants more out of life. As a bright 25-year-old copy editor at Chicago's revered newspaper, the Chicago sun times, she yearns to be a reporter. Josie is skilled at her profession, but completely clueless in her personal life. She was a brainy nerd in high school, a geek to the core - kids called her "Josie Grossie" - and she has never had a serious relationship with a man.

Josie has never, she laments, been really kissed.

But things are about to change for Josie - in ways she could never have imagined - when her dream to become a reporter becomes a reality. But her first assignment couldn't be more nightmarish: she must go undercover at a local high school to report on today's teenagers. Now, eight years senior to the oldest pupil in the class, Josie must figure out her story - and a potential new love - while reliving her horrific adolescence and negotiating high school's social and emotional land mines.

Also starring David Arquette, Michael Vartan, Leelee Sobieski, Jeremy Jordan, Molly Shannon, Garry Marshall and John C Reilly. Directed by Raja Gosnell.

Theatrical report

For all of you who are expecting to see Drew as another nympho sex goddess: don't rent this flick. In fact, if you're looking for sex, go rent The sexperiment.

This is the second time (the first was Ever after) that I have seen Drew in a comedy drama, forcing me to look beyond her milky white skin and luscious breasts and focus on her acting ability.

However, despite Drew's talent, I still did not enjoy this film. The story is as old and clichéd as the hillls: undercover journo student falls in love with cute, young teacher, etc., etc., etc.

If you want a real heart-warming comedy, rent Patch Adams.
