Movie Recommendation of the Week: Just one of the Guys

Published by at 9:00 am under Columns

I believe I’ve mentioned this movie before on this site.   In fact I know I have.   It was mentioned both in a William Zabka article I did a few years back but was recently mentioned in an underappreciated movies piece we did.   While it wasn’t one of the recommendations I decided that Just One of the Guys needed its own space on this site.

Here’s a really funny short bio of the movie.  Terry believes her teachers don’t take her seriously, just because she’s a pretty girl. When she fails to win a journalism contest, she decides to switch schools – and gender so that her same submission for the contest gets equal praise as a guy.  She plays her role well and is accepted as one of the guys.  However then she meets Rick, likes him, and her whole world is switched upside down.

That description does no justice by the way.   You’ll find that this movie is one of the classic 80s comedies of our time.  It’s got William Zabka, which alone kicks ass.  It was a 3 second nudity part which is hilarious.   It’s got lame high school antics.   It has lame high school romance.  It has a funny little brother.  It’s got it all.  Trust me.  You need to see this movie.

Not to mention she looks like Ralph Macchio.

    Everyone acts like the Phoebe Cates scene in Fast Times’ was the best boobies of the 80′s. but hers aren’t half as good as Joyce Hyser’s in this movie.

    Yup good choice. That chick at the beginning of the movie in her white bikini is so damn hot. Also, Sherilyn Finn when she was super hot.

    I just rewatched another 80′s fav of mine with Sherilyn Finn in it, The Wild Life, with Stoltz and C Penn. For me it’s always been the unofficial sequel to Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

    It also displayed the 80′s infatuation kids had with all things Vietnam War (Fatigues, music and movies) .

    It’s casual! (I hate that line by the way. I think as a kid though I thought it was cool.)
