The review of this Movie prepared by Keri Apodaca

Josie Geller (Barrymore) is a newspaper reporter whose career isn't going where she wants it to go, until she gets an undercover assignment as a high school student to learn about today's teens. Unfortunately, she was horribly unpopular as a teenager, and being an adult in high school hasn't changed anything. She fits in better with the nerds of the school than with the popular kids, but her boss decides that the popular kids are where the story is. While Josie is busy experiencing extreme humiliation as a student, she's also becoming attracted to her English teacher. This wouldn't be so bad if he knew her for who she was, but he thinks she's an intelligent high school student. Time is running out, because Josie's going to lose her job if she doesn't get a story.
