    Synopsis


    Just One of the Guys
    In this uneven teen comedy, an aspiring female high-school journalist assumes a fake male identity after her essay on just that subject -- a woman posing as a male jock -- is rejected in a contest. Miffed by what she assumes is a bias against her gender in the rejection of her essay, Terry (Joyce Hyser) dons the right garb, gets a new haircut, drops her voice down to a suitable male-sounding register and passes herself off as a guy (okay, not believably, but one is willing to go along with the conceit to see what happens). As she soon discovers, moments in the locker room and at phys ed classes can be harrowing, but worse yet, she becomes seriously enamored of Rick (Clayton Rohner) a quiet, good-looking guy who does not run with either the macho or preppie pack. How can she broach the subject of her real identity? Terry's friends have their own romantic interests, all of which are resolved at the high school prom. It just had to be -- this film was followed by one titled Just One of the Girls with another director, and a male cross-dresser as the featured protagonist. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

      Good 80's movie about a girl who dresses up as a guy to be taken more serious as a journalist and ends up falling for a guy who thinks she is a guy as well. It is good for some laughs and is a pretty good story. It is a good teen movie/love story that girls will like. You will get it out and watch it at least once a year so it is definately worth the price. It is one of the classic 80's movies I did not think would ever make it to DVD but glad it did. It is good.

      Another Great 80's Teen Movie

      This is another one of those classic 80's films that I grew up watching and still love to this day. A very funny story and good cast make this one most enjoyable. Plus, I don't know what it is about Joyce Hyser, but I just find her so attractive in this movie! Full-screen with no bonus features, but considering that this movie was somewhat obscure, I'm just happy it's on dvd. Highly Recommended!

      I loved this movie back in the day on VHS and had to buy the dvd. The picture and sound are great and I just bust up laughing ever time I watch it. Surprisingly good acting and you get to see some really true and upcoming stars before they made it big.
