The debut feature from director Lisa Gottlieb, Just One of the Guys is an '80s gender-bending teen comedy starring Joyce Hyser as an aspiring female writer who pretends to be a boy for a piece she's writing. Delivered to DVD for the first time with this bare-bones release, the film has received a full-screen transfer with the audio mastered in Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono. Optional subtitles in English, French, and Korean are also available.
I have always loved this movie. My favorite character has to be the brother.
I would recommend this to a friend

A classic 80's comedy!
Owned for 1 month when reviewed.
This is one of the films that I watched every time it was on HBO in the 80's. It is writing, acting & direction are all executed well. This is another great performance by Joyce Hyser topping her role in Hollywood Knights. He little brother gets all the best lines and steals the show. It is one of the few films that took this long to get its first home video release in the original theatrical ratio! The picture transfer is very good and as a great bonus, includes a reunion commentary track with the director and cast.
I have an affinity for b-grade movies, I don't know why. This one I found endearing, gorgeous girl wanting to develop a career, will do almost anything to get the scoop as a reporter on her high school paper, passes herself off as guy to make her story. Ok, not great acting, but I just really enjoy this movie, call me shallow. This one is up there with Pretty in Pink, Weekend at Bernie's, The Wedding Singer, and Legally Blonde. Guilty pleasures!!
