All Critics (11) | Top Critics (2)

Joyce Hyser, affecting a lower register, a short haircut, and a subtle swagger, is not totally convincing as a boy because she's too pretty and too chic.

Top Critic

The film is a bit too fashion conscious to make a very strong point about appearances not meaning anything.

Just One of the Guys is a charming and wild 1980s teen comedy anchored by Joyce Hyser's charismatic and unexpectedly committed performance.

Dec 6, 2018 | Full Review…

Most of the male-female situations Terry finds herself in are played for laughs, and the film eventually sinks into an all too typical conclusion, but the observations regarding the nature of sexuality are interesting and well handled.

Innocuously likable little mini-Tootsie.

Just One of the Guys is worth repeated viewing, especially for Hyser's hilarious and charismatic performance.

Audience Reviews for Just One of the Guys


I can remember renting this one about 15 years or so, (no comments about my age, please!), and thinking it was not all that good. Have just now re-watched it as it was on Crackle, (that web site again, what did I say about bad news for me?!), and I couldn't really remember it too well. Have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. Yes, it is not the best movie going, but it actually as pretty enjoyable. Joyce Hyser (never heard of her!) does reasonably well as the girl posing as a boy - not entirely convincing all the time, but more a success than a fail. Clayton Rohner is also good as the friend she makes as a boy and then falls in love with. (Yes, full of cliches, but it's an 80's teen movie, no complaints here!). It delivers a few laughs, a bit of romance and plenty of cool 80's fashion.

A great drama/comedy about sexism in high school. The cast is great, and it's very funny too. Loved this movie.

One of those movies that at times are comical but other times are sweet. :)

Good 80's movie because the acting is bad but in a good 80's way which doesn't make sense unless you like the 80's
