  • 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.

  • 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.

    Apr 2, 2005 | Rating: 3/5
  • Just One of the Guys is worth repeated viewing, especially for Hyser's hilarious and charismatic performance.

    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
