The most exhilarating American movie I have seen this year -- which isn't saying much.
May 26, 2006
The material is pretty much the same as She's All That and the other recent high school movies, but Barrymore has the big screen stuff to pull it off.

Barrymore again displays her remarkable ability to get the audience rooting for her singular blend of vulnerability and sunny optimism.

This is an okay date flick. It's somewhat forgettable, like high school should be, but possessing a few moments it'll be tough to get out of your head.

Never Been Kissed, like so many coulda-shoulda-woulda-been-good movies, starts out strong. Then it loses its nerve in the third act, substituting a fuzzy emotional spectacle for a coherent conclusion.

The heart-affecting finale of Never Been Kissed turns the sports shrine of the pitcher's mound into a shrine for love.

Do nineties filmmakers forget what it was like to be a teenager, and call upon "Saved By the Bell" reruns for a refresher course?
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 11, 2001
Relatively inoffensive and relentlessly mediocre.

When the story begins to turn toward Josie's growing relationship with her attractive English teacher, Sam Coulson (Michael Vartan), the movie begins to unravel because it's dealing with a subject that is above its grasp.
