Mary Fiore is San Francisco's most successful supplier of romance and glamor. She knows all the tricks. She knows all the rules. But then she breaks the most important rule of all: she falls in love with the groom.
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. Josie, who was a frustrated, ridiculed nerd, gets a popular make-over from her drop-out, naturally funny brother Rob Geller. Both siblings find love and joys of youth again. But in Josie's case, it's sensitive bachelor teacher Sam Coulson, who enjoys sophisticated conversation. As the publication deadline approaches, the price of blowing their cover seems ever more daunting, yet inevitable unless she sacrifices her career.Written by
It is an issue in the movie that Josie is considerably older than her "high school crush" Guy (she is supposed to be 25, while he would be about 17), but actually, Drew Barrymore is 2 years younger than Jeremy Jordan, the actor who plays Guy. See more »

Guess who I did it with last night?
Roger from Op/Ed?
Aww... Who told you?
You did. You said, and I quote "Tonight I have a date with Roger from Op/Ed, and I'm gonna do it with him."

I enjoyed this movie quite a bit. It was charming, funny, and, at times painful. I, however think it was painful to watch because I had such a hard time at high school, and I could relate to this movie.
It reminded me of "Mean Girls" a lot, although this had a softer edge to it.
It was a bit predictable, but, sometimes a good, sweet, romance with a happy ending is what you want in a movie.
The acting was good, and the story was believable-if a bit far-fetched.
The sound track was awesome!
