Sweet, romantic story for teens has some edgy scenes.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Never Been Kissed is an upbeat romantic comedy with underlying themes of self-respect and making good decisions. That said, the characters do deceive each other, and there's a lot of high school stereotyping. There are also quite a few sexual references -- Josie's friend at the office brags about her sex life (but envies Josie's views on love), and a "sex talk" scene involves putting condoms on bananas. In another scene, Josie unknowingly eats some pot brownies and behaves very foolishly; there's some additional teen drinking as well. Flirting/dating between characters of very different ages (undercover twentysomethings and teens), while part of the movie's humor, can feel awkard. Language includes "s--t," "ass," and "damn."
