Nerdy journalist Drew Barrymore goes undercover to

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.
PROFANITY 3 - Several anatomical references, a couple of scatological
references, several mild obscenities and some name-calling. [profanity glossary]
DISCUSSION TOPICS - High-school, undercover reporting, being an outcast,
