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.

Funny, original, and one of my favorites.
9 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

This is one of those films i just have to watch again every now and then, because i like it, and because it's damn funny. It tells the story of a girl who wants to be a boy, and by magical means, her wish is granted. Some scenes had me rolling on the floor laughing.

This film, besides being a great movie, also deals with some important teen issues in a very funny way, which i thought was great.

One of my favorite feel good movies!
