Never Been Kissed | 1999 | PG-13 | - 4.2.3

Nerdy journalist Drew Barrymore goes undercover to infiltrate the popular clique at a local high school and write a story about today's teens. Also with David Arquette, Molly Shannon, Michael Vartan, John C. Reilly, Leelee Sobieski, Garry Marshall, Jessica Alba, Jeremy Jordan, Marley Shelton and Jordan Ladd. [1:47]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - Lots of sexual innuendo. Kissing, often passionately. A woman grabs her clothed breasts and licks a pencil (as if she were performing fellatio) in front of a man; he briefly wiggles his tongue at her. We see students in a classroom putting condoms onto bananas. We see the bottom part of a girl's bare buttocks hanging out of her short shorts and we see many girls wearing short skirts and cleavage- and midriff-revealing tops. We see shirtless boys with towels wrapped around their waists and a boy wearing a dress shirt and underwear in a few scenes.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A boy throws a couple of eggs at a girl. A woman runs into a door and is knocked out; we briefly see a small red bump on her forehead. A condom snaps off a banana and hits a man in the forehead. We hear a girl throwing up.

LANGUAGE 3 - Several anatomical references, a couple of scatological references, several mild obscenities and some name-calling.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
