#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Terry Griffith has got it all — looks, popularity, the perfect college boyfriend, and an article that’s a shoo-in to win her a summer internship at the local newspaper… or so she thinks. When Terry’s journalism teacher passes her article up in favor of a couple of pieces written by boys, Terry is convinced that sexism is to blame. Determined to win the internship at any cost, Terry goes undercover at a rival high school to resubmit her article… as a boy. But Terry gets more than she bargained for when she finds herself fending off a bully and the advances of an oversexed female admirer, and falling for her new pal Rick.
Plot: When Terry Griffith 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, helps her pass as a guy so well that she is soon making friends with the boys at school, including the attractive Rick, who becomes her new best friend. But her gender-swapping makes things difficult when she falls in love with him.

**Who said the beautiful girls are not smart enough!**
I always like the 80s films, because that’s the time the teen films were revolutionised. I did not know this film’s existence, also not knew ‘She’s the Man’ was its remake. Very enjoyable comedy flick. It was not a flawless film, but they were minimised. This is the story of Terry, a senior high school girl who after failed to get her desired summer job at a local press, she decides to reapply for the internship disguised as a boy with the help of her little brother. The rest follows what she’s going to achieve from her new getup.
I really don’t know any of these actors, but I liked them all, especially the lead actress. As I have seen many similar films, I don’t think it failed to get my attention. So 80s, I mean very impressive like usual with slow and steady narration. You should not compare it to the present teen films. It was not just a different era film, but smartly highlighted the trend among the high school kids of the 80s. Particularly like the relationship and sexually perspectives, though not that strong contents.
I don’t think everybody would like it, especially the todays youngsters, but surely the 80s and the 90s guys would enjoy it. I was not even born when it came out, though I feel my generation was very close to it than the present. If you have not seen many films like this theme, you should try it, but watch out for the slow story progression. That’s the only thing that might disappoint the viewers, but if you are okay with that, then it is a better film than you would have anticipated.
***A popular girl masquerades as a new male student and it naturally presents amusing problems***
Terry, a teenager in Phoenix (Joyce Hyser), feels she has no choice but to become a male student in order to compete in a journalistic contest at her high school. Clayton Rohner plays her new best friend (Rick) once she’s a “guy” while Billy Jayne plays her annoyingly superficial brother (Buddy). William Zabka (Greg) appears as the antagonist (you might remember him in the same role a year earlier in “The Karate Kid”). Toni Hudson (Denise) and Sherilyn Fenn (Sandy) are also on hand.
“Just One of the Guys” (1985) is a fun 80’s teen flick that’s superior to overrated crap like “The Breakfast Club” (1985) but not great like “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” (1982) or “The Karate Kid” (1984). I’d put it on par with “Can’t Buy Me Love” (1987); both have a glaring campy side (unlike those other three) and were shot in Arizona.
Hyser was great for the role because she looks stunning in a bikini, but also passes well for a dude when made-up appropriately. This is no small feat when you consider how filmmakers failed to do this is the serious Western “The Ballad of Little Jo” (1993).
The film runs 1 hour and 40 minutes and was shot in Arizona: Phoenix (Terry & Buddy’s House and the caves), Scottsdale (school) Tempe (Big Surf).
sweet fun comedy
I really enjoyed this when I saw it and would highly recomend. Very good,sweet welldone comedy that could have been cheezy but isn’t. It’s not heavy at all, just a sweet teen comedy that’s better then alot of them because it’s actually funny and very sweet at the same time. Most of the reviews here seem to be positive as well.
The Battle of the Sexes Takes an Interesting Turn
Just One of the Guys is classic 80s b-teen comedy. Even though it is utterly dated, it is still a great comedy with a good story, good performances, and a good soundtrack.
Joyce Hyser is Terry, an aspiring journalist who wants very desperately to get a summer internship at the local newspaper office. Except, her article on the school cafateria’s food selection, wasn’t selected for submission. Even though her teacher tries to explain that her writing skills are good, it was just boring content, she is convinced her article being refused has something to do with her gender. She embarks on a misguided attempt to engage in a battle of the sexes in that “anything you can do, I can do better” kind of way.
So, with her parents out of town and a neighboring high school not seeming to require any registration information (or her present high school asking any information regarding her two week absent during her experiment), she easily poses as Terrence, a guy who will write an article and submit it and prove that there is preferential treatment being practiced in the contest.
But, as Terrence, her experiences in the experiment soon become the subject of her article.
First, are the obviously difficulties of a girl posing as a guy at a high school, and the most obvious examples come from the scenes of Terry in gym class. She has to figure out how to change in the lockeroom without other guys finding out. She has to find ways of getting out of gym class and the possibility of playing “shirts” vs “skins” games. And so forth.
Second, she starts falling in love with Rick (Clayton Rohner), a cute quiet guy who she tries to help get a date and fix up his appearance and personality. This leads to problems when girls, convinced that Terry is really a guy, start falling for her. Particularly, the nymphomaniac, Sandy, played by Sherylin Fenn. It also leads to some moments where Terry risks exposing her identity in the few times she wants to lean over and kiss him.
Third, Terry starts to have problems with her jerky boyfriend who just wants to fool around everytime he comes over and only feigning interest in Terry’s current social and academic problems.
And fourth, both Terry and Rick face their share of confrontations with a food-tossing bully named Greg (Billy Zabka).
80s teen movie fans are sure to enjoy this movie. Unfortunately, it is not one that seems to have gotten enough recognition this days, at least when compared to movies like Better Off Dead, The Sure Thing, the John Hughes movies, and others which have been revived recently. Despite a few shortfalls (Joyce Hyser’s whining in the beginning), this movie is just as entertaining as those. Plus, that gorgeous Bobby Jacoby as Terry’s oversexed younger brother, Buddy; 80s teen favorite Billy Zabka as Greg; and soft-spoken Clayton Rhoner as Rick, all give great performances. I highly recommend it for teenagers and fans of the 80s teen genre.
