Movie Info

When Terry Griffith (Joyce Hyser) loses her high school's writing competition, she's convinced that it's because she's a girl. So Terry decides to change high schools and pose as a boy to prove her point. Her brother, Buddy (Billy Jacoby), helps her pass as a guy so well that she is soon making friends with the boys at school, including the attractive Rick (Clayton Rohner), who becomes her new best friend. But her gender-swapping makes things difficult when she falls in love with him.

  • 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.

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

    May 20, 2003 | Rating: 2/5
  • Just One of the Guys is a charming and wild 1980s teen comedy anchored by Joyce Hyser's charismatic and unexpectedly committed performance.

    December 7, 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.

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

    It has enjoyable moments but the ending is kinda dumb and Terry really isn't buyable as a guy at all. I like She's the Man a lot more.

    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
