Boys Meets Girl, Boys Dresses Up As Girl, It Hits the Fan
24 August 2006 | by radicalpiSee all my reviews

Plot Summary: Boy (Stephen) who plays tennis falls in love with girl who plays tennis. When there's an injury on the women's tennis team, Stephen and his unscrupulous friend put him in a tennis skirt so that he can circumnavigate his love's violently possessive boyfriend.

I'm guessing that the title is a play off of the last line of "Some Like It Hot", a classic gender-bender film if there ever was one.

This film is a cheesy little romance, with an interesting plot twist or two and the occasionally witty bit of funny dialogue.

Girl (hitting on boy): What's your favorite kind of pizza? Boy: Large. Girl: Mine too!

I got a few laughs out of the love-struck protagonist's hijinks in a skirt. Nothing all that exciting, but decent entertainment if you don't have anything else to do.
