Just One of the Girls (Anything for Love) Reviews
Just one of those feel good movies that you can watch over and over and not think too hard, have a laugh, and Corey is always watchable... real waste to think he is not with us anymore.
Story is that Chris, (Corey Haim), dresses as a girl to avoid the school bully and, as it's his first day in school, he is spotted by his teacher in drag and has to attend school like that all the time. To complicate matters further, he falls in love with Marie ,(Nicole Eggert), befriends her (as a girl), and then the bully turns out to be Marie's brother. Cue all types of funny situations and misunderstandings.
Whole cast is good here. None of them are winning awards, but it works in a fun light movie like this. The girl who plays Julie, Chris's sister, is also quite amusing.
Yes, it's an 80's tennage film and does date but who doesn't love Corey Haim in a dress, really?
You know the story, boy likes girl, girl doesn't know bnoy exists, boy dresses up like a new female student to get close to girl - that old chestnut. But it's a really charming movie and Haim brings a lot of personality and likability to this movie.
Some parts could have been done better and been less corny, but on the whole it is a good easy watch.
