Storyline

Milly is annoyed whenever her mom tells her to behave more appropriate for a girl. She's just not interested in fancy dresses or prom dances. Some day her best friend's little brother offers her a potion which can make her deepest wish come true during a solar eclipse. She goes through with it and ends up with male genitals, additionally. So she has to decide if she wants to life as boy or girl. Her father, who always wanted a son, supports her in checking out life as a boy. Hence Milly changes school and starts out as Willy.

Great lost 80's comedy

Very funny lost gem from my youth. I remember seeing this when it came onto TV. I have seen it twice and then forgot all about it for years. Thought about it yesterday and set upon the task of figuring out it's title. Hooray , I found it! I highly recommend this if you come across it in one of it's three titles. Milly's best friend's reaction to her newly grown penis is hilarious.Good family comedy despite somewhat "blue" moments. Yes, the premise is a little far fetched but come on, it's a comedy aimed at young adults. Would buy in a heartbeat when it get's on DVD (hint hint). Seriously, why isn't this on DVD yet? I see on here far less worthy films made by the director and producers re-released.
