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
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
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.
