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.

Found it on DVD!
31 January 2010 | by coralzebcoSee all my reviews

My sister and I LOVE this movie! We found the VHS at the flea market in the 90's. I recently found it on Amazon (DVD) and bought it ... opening music was updated (poor choice) - some lame graphics also added to opening credits - but boy am I happy to have it on DVD!

Love Seth Green as the little punk neighbor boy, and how he randomly appears with his red wagon (everywhere), all seeing. I also like how Milly is merely seeing what the perceived benefits are to being a boy; she's not bi-curious, she's a feminist, and avoids advances from the girls.
