Twenty years ago today, the romantic comedy “Never Been Kissed” was released into theaters. “Never Been Kissed” is a film about an innocent, insecure copy editor for the Chicago Sun-Times named Josie Geller. One day at work, her boss chooses her to go undercover at a local high school. Her assignment is to get all the juicy details about the lives of teenagers. This expedition into the clickiness of high school forces Josie to relive her own past experiences, and it also poses an opportunity for a “do-over” of sorts. Drew Barrymore is hysterical in the lead role, giving a truly loveable performance.
What is your favorite Drew Barrymore film?
Okay. Okay. I know. “E.T.” is your favorite Drew Barrymore film. So, maybe the better question would be to ask what is your second favorite Drew Barrymore film to date?
Barrymore, who comes from a long line of famous Barrymores, has been in the business since before she could walk. At the start of her film career, she starred in films like “E.T.” (1982) and “Irreconcilable Differences” (1984). She has portrayed the brooding teenager in films like “Poison Ivy” (1992) and “Mad Love” (1994). She helped make “Scream” (1996) a horror classic and was able to kick ass in two “Charlie’s Angels” (2000 & 2003) films.
But I think we can all agree that Barrymore has made her biggest impression with the romantic and with the comedy. “The Wedding Singer” (1998), “Ever After” (1998), “Fever Pitch” (2005), “Music and Lyrics” (2007), and “He’s Just Not That Into You” (2009) all showcase Barrymore’s charming demeanor.
It has been four years since she was on the big screen. (She’s been eating human flesh in the Netflix comedy “Santa Clarita Diet” since 2017). But Drew Barrymore extensive film history deserves a look through.
