Theater Thursday on a Wednesday?

I know it's only Wednesday but since tomorrow is a special day, this week's Theater Thursday is coming at you a day early! 
 
For those of you who may be new around these parts, every Thursday is dedicated to Theater Thursday around here. On Thursdays, I post about a movie that I really like and recommend to others to watch. I have only one rule with Theater Thursday- It has to be out of the theaters and on dvd. So without further ado, this week's featured movie is, Just One of the Guys.

Just One of the Guys stars Terry (Joyce Hyser) a girl who has everything. She's smart, pretty, popular and has the perfect college boyfriend. As a senior in high school she's trying to set up her plans for the future by securing a summer internship with a well known Chicago Newspaper. At the beginning of the semester her teacher tells her that her writing isn't good enough and that he can't pass along her work. Terry refuses to take no for answer and believes that he's being sexist. Terry sets off on a mission.

Terry enrolls her best friend and brother to help transfer her perfect girly look into a masculine male believing that if she submits her article as a male it would be deemed good enough. She even transfers schools and along the way befriends a shy, male student named Kevin. Terry instantly takes a liking to him, but remembers that she has a boyfriend. As time goes on she finds it harder and harder to be a "male" around Kevin and be Terry around her boyfriend. 

If you've never seen this movie, it's really funny and really cute. It kind of makes me wonder if the idea for that Hilary Swank movie, Boys Don't Cry was originated from this movie. Anyways check this movie out because you'll be sure to have a good laugh. 

As always, if you'd like to do a Theater Thursday post, feel free to grab the button on the side, post your blog and then come back here and link up!
