In this light-weight adolescent adventure, busty Tommy Boyd (Betsy Russell), a tough-gal mechanic who runs a garage in East L.A., would rather spend time riding her motorcycle and playing B-ball with the street kids than fussing with fashions and other feminine cliches. She does find time to make love with her handsome boyfriend Randy Starr (model Jerry Dinome), a racecar driver who is prettier than she is. Unfortunately for her, he gets tired of her masculine ways, and they begin to fight. Eventually, they decide to solve their differences on the racetrack of the Daytona 500. … More

Critic Reviews for Tomboy
Tommy's one-note and completely irrational, but Russell captures the primary colors with ease, fulfilling her obligation as the focal point of the production.
There were a lot of silly sex comedies in the '80s, but Tomboy surely marks the nadir of the genre.
Audience Reviews for Tomboy
This romantic comedy is just what the title says, about a "Tomboy". There are a couple of good romantic scenes, and a bit of fun, but in the end it's all for nothing. Overall, it's watchable, but not a good movie.
First of all, I have to say that I was very surprised to realize that the woman who played JIgsaw's wife in the Saw series, Betsy Russell had starred in a fun/corny '80s rom-com, showing a healthy amount of skin in the process. Russell is super cute in the title role, playing a gearhead who bucks tradition by being a ::girl:: who actually knows a lot about cars and shows up her male peers time and again.
As with a lot of '80s material, it's fun (if predictable), and well worth a look if you're into some enjoyable T & A to pass the time
