Adorable movie about a journalist, Josie Geller, asked to go undercover as a senior student at South Glen South High School. She agrees to it but forgets that whenever she was in high school she was called names. At first she has a hard time fitting in but her brother enrolls and tells lies about Josie to make her popular because she has to befriend the popular kids for a story when that doesn't work she has to do a story on her teacher, Sam Coulson. When she finally writes her piece she writes that she is in love with Sam & will wait on the baseball mound before the first inning of the South Glen South game. This is a heart warming tale of a girl who never got her real first kiss & wants to have it with the man she loves. A five star romantic classic! :) Michael Vartan is so cute in this movie!!! :) :) :)
