Product Overview

In this exclusive 20th Century Fox Double Feature, you will get two heartwarming and hilarious films that celebrate the power of feminism and friendship! Don't miss out on Never Been Kissed, starring Drew Barrymore, and Uptown Girls, starring Brittany Murphy!

Never Been Kissed: Eight years ago she was a total geek; now she's back to get it right! "Drew Barrymore is brilliant!" (Jonathan Foreman, New York Post) in this hilarious, heartwarming comedy about that wacky "wonderland" of homework, hot lunches and raging hormones known as high school. Newspaper reporter Josie Geller (Drew Barrymore) is going undercover as a student to learn about today's teens. At first she's thrilled...until she remembers her nickname: "Josie Grossie." Can a former clueless nerd navigate the hallways of high school without tripping over her own feet?

Uptown Girls: Brittany Murphy and Dakota Fanning shine brighter than all the lights of Manhattan in this delightful New York fairy tale. Co-starring Marley Shelton, Donald Faison and Heather Locklear, Uptown Girls will make you laugh, cry...and laugh again! Molly (Murphy) is a partying rock 'n' roll princess whose money just ran out. Ray (Fanning) is a fussy nine-year-old whose last nanny just ran out. Only Ray's way-too-busy mom (Locklear) could think that hiring Molly would be the perfect setup for both girls. But as this unlikely pair faces everything from control issues (Ray's, of course) to tempter tantrums (Molly's, of course), they discover that sometimes, your best friend can come from the place you least expect!

Review [Never] Never Been Kissed is peppered with what I call "embarrassing moments": scenes designed to elicit cheap laughter by placing the lead character in a series of humiliating circumstances. Viewers, sympathizing with the film makers' victim, don't know whether to laugh or cover their eyes. On the one hand, for this device to work, it means that there has to be a connection between the character and the audience. On the other hand, it's a dangerous technique, because, when it fails (which happens more often than not), it damages the character's credibility and removes the possibility that any aspect of the movie can be taken seriously...Distilled to its basic essence, Never Been Kissed is yet another in a long line of teen movies that centers on the emergence of the geek.

Review [Uptown] The theory is that Brittany Murphy is trying to channel Marilyn Monroe, but as I watched "Uptown Girls," another name came to mind: Lucille Ball. Murphy has a kind of divine ineptitude that moves beyond Marilyn's helplessness into Lucy's dizzy lovability..."Uptown Girls" gives Murphy an opportunity to channel Lucy at feature length. She plays an improbable character in an impossible story, but of course she does...I dismiss all cavils about the movie's logic and plausibility as beside the point. This is not a move about plot but about personalities...I also enjoyed the movie's emotional complexity. "Uptown Girls" could have been a simple-minded, relentlessly cheerful formula picture. There is an underlying formula there, of course, with all problems resolved at the end, but Ray is anything but another cookie-cutter little movie girl, and Molly's problems at times are really daunting.

David Sterrit, Christian Science Monitor [Uptown] ...marvelously imaginative directing...a colorful, creative, deliciously frolicsome romp.
Entertainment Time-Out [Never] This delightfully funny, high-spirited comedy is in a class by itself! Barrymore is brilliant.
Kirk Honeycutt, The Hollywood Reporter [Uptown] A perky comedy aimed at young women that gets the job done with crisp efficiency.
The Boston Globe [Never] A triumph!
