Just one of the guys

Just One of the Guys is a 1985 comedy film, directed by Lisa Gottlieb. Terri Griffith (Joyce Hyser) is an aspiring teenage journalist living in Phoenix, Arizona who feels that her teachers don’t take her school newspaper articles seriously because of her good looks. After failing to get her dream job as a newspaper intern, she comes to the conclusion that it is because she is a girl. With her parents out of town on a two-week Caribbean vacation, Terri decides to remedy the situation. Enrolling at a rival high school, she enlists the help of her sex-obsessed loudmouth little brother, Buddy (Billy Jacoby) and her best friend Denise (Toni Hudson) to disguise herself as a boy. The film is marketed with the tagline “Terri Griffith is about to go where no woman has gone before.” It ranked number 48 on Entertainment Weekly‘s list of the “50 Best High School Movies”. The film is a loose adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.
