Are you looking for a great Journalism Film, with a little comedy? Well look no further than, “Never Been Kissed.” In Never Been Kissed, Drew Barrymore plays a Copy Editor who gets her first big shot at reporting for the newspaper as an undercover high school student. The film has very light-hearted humor, and lots of
major journalism mistakes that would never happen in a newsroom, which makes this to be a great classroom discussion film about the Ethics of Journalism.
Note: Even thought the film is PG-13, make sure that you have parent’s permission.
