Never Been Kissed (1999)

Matt Flynn recently emailed me about a mention of Scranton in the film Never Been Kissed.

In 1999, Drew Barrymore co-produced and starred in the comedy Never Been Kissed, which also featured David Arquette, Molly Shannon, and Oscar-nominee John C. Reilly (Chicago). Barrymore plays Josie Geller, the youngest copy editor ever at the Chicago Sun-Times who poses as a high school student at the very same high school where she was once a misfit (nicknamed "Josie Grossey").

In a scene on her first day of school, as an undercover reporter, Josie rehearses her background to herself as a new student, chanting, "My name is Josie Geller. I'm from Scranton, Pennsylvania, the Keystone State."

The DVD of Never Been Kissed is available to borrow from the Lackawanna County Library System. To place a hold, click here.

Much thanks to Matt Flynn for this reference.
