Chicago Sun Times copy editor Josie Gellar (25), who was desperate to graduate from perfectionist copy editor to reporter, gets her chance when the goody owner orders the editor to cover the high-school scene by undercover.

...Of upper, white, suburban life. I'm tired of little cute, fairy-tale-like movies such as this one. This would NEVER happen in real life...The plot if predictable and has been done only about...1 billion times. I just have no sympathy for the characters in this movie. Drew Barrymore playing a nerd...yeah right! She's gorgeous. I mean...I'm not halfway as cute as she is and I find myself more popular than she was. Then there's LeeLee...who's equally as gorgeous as Drew, if not more. I hate the way movies now a days make it like smart people can NEVER be popular.
Is this the way that suburban high schools are really like? Thank God that mine isn't like this at all. You can only be popular is you dress like a slut, wear tons of lip gloss, act like a ditz, and fail all of your classes. Now I thought this was a pretty good movie...just too unrealistic and predictable. I seriously was making bets when I was watching it with my friend and little sister in the movie theater. Of course...they didn't want to disagree because they knew that it would happen too. What's the message of this story? Lie and cheat and then you'll be popular and get the guy.
