The classic 80’s movie is now on DVD! I used to watch this movie all the time when it was on HBO and Comedy Central. Though the Comedy Central version sucks because they censor everything out. Thankfully that’s not the case with the DVD.

For anyone who’s deprived of 80’s teen comedies, this is what Just One of the Guys is about. Terry (Joyce Hyser) is a pretty, popular high school girl and has a college boyfriend (Leigh McCloskey) but her teachers don’t take her seriously about her writing because she’s a female. Terry thinks the teachers are sexist and don’t want her paper to be entered into the local newspaper contest for a summer internship. So she decides to go to another school for a week as a boy and tries to enter the contest there. She gets help from her horny little brother Buddy (Billy Jacoby) and her best friend Denise (Toni Hudson); plus she meets new friends at the other school and also some enemies. Terry falls for the loner of the school and doesn’t want to mess up the relationship they already have.

I think if it wasn’t for Buddy and his classic lines, the movie wouldn’t have been that great. Yeah there’s other funny things with Terry, but for the most part, I thought Buddy stole the movie. His line delivery is awesome and what he said in the movie is hilarious! The part where he talks to his mom on the phone is classic, and I still do that on the phone after seeing that movie haha. “Same to you buttface!” After seeing the movie, when I haven’t seen it in years, I can’t stand when Terry acts like a boy. It’s so cringy to watch. I think what makes those scenes so cringy is the voice she used, and her hair style. She actually looks better with shorter hair (no, not the boy’s hair style!) than her long hair. I like it when she fluffs it up all messy. Those scenes with Terry were still fun to watch though, like her trying to get dressed for gym class. Also, when Sandy comes over her house, and when she used the guy’s bathroom. Why couldn’t she just use a bathroom stall though? Guys do have that in the bathrooms you know? It’s funny how many 80’s movies William Zabka was the bad guy in. I wonder if he was like that in real life and it just came natural to him? No 80’s teen movie would be complete without a pair of complete geeks. They were played by Arye Gross & Robert Fieldsteel and they spoke alien to each other. Doesn’t get much geekier than that. My friends tease my brother and I and say we act like that, which we don’t, you jerks!
