Storyline

Terry Griffith has got it all -- looks, popularity, the perfect college boyfriend, and an article that's a shoo-in to win her a summer internship at the local newspaper... or so she thinks. When Terry's journalism teacher passes her article up in favor of a couple of pieces written by boys, Terry is convinced that sexism is to blame. Determined to win the internship at any cost, Terry goes undercover at a rival high school to resubmit her article... as a boy. But Terry gets more than she bargained for when she finds herself fending off a bully and the advances of an oversexed female admirer, and falling for her new pal Rick. Written by Faith

Goofs

In scenes where the setting is the cafeteria, there is a white banner in the background that reads "Seniors '85". Later, when Rick is trying to find a prom date but is repeatedly turned down, he says "How about any night in the year 1987?" This is because he is being sarcastic while attempting to illustrate the young lady will never be available to go out on a date with him. See more »

sweet fun comedy
16 November 2003 | by triple8See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this when I saw it and would highly recomend. Very good,sweet welldone comedy that could have been cheezy but isn't. It's not heavy at all, just a sweet teen comedy that's better then alot of them because it's actually funny and very sweet at the same time. Most of the reviews here seem to be positive as well.
