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.

good times

My friends and I used to go to our local video store before it got rid of its VHS, back in the day and we'd rent piles of video's always making sure that we only rented things that we hadn't seen and looked strange. Something special was in a bright pink box with a little doodle of a girl looking down her pants in shock and we knew right away that we had to rent it.

This is not by any means one of those movies which will one day explode in popularity, but when my friends and I watched it, we couldn't believe what we were seeing it had us rolling on the floor laughing and we probably watched it about six times in one weekend because it amused us so much. If you love movies that really are quite stupid but in a fun guilty pleasure sort of way this is a definitely a movie for you, plus tiny Seth green is hilarious.
