Cult Film Club Episode 32: Just One of the Guys

In this episode of the Cult Film Club hosts Jaime, Shawn and Pax tackle the seriously under-appreciated 80s teen comedy Just One of the Guys!  Starring Joyce Hyser, Billy Jayne (Jacoby), Billy Zabka, and Clayton Rohner, the film centers around aspiring writer Terry as she learns the hard way that sometimes it sucks to be a girl.  After having her article entry for the local paper’s internship contest squashed by her journalism teacher, Terry decides that the only way she can get a fair shake is to switch schools, and genders.  Terry goes undercover as Terrance to submit her article for the contest but soon finds herself mixed up with a local bully, the romantic life of her new friend Rick, and trying to keep her little brother from getting an STD.

We talk about our history with the film, the wonderful cast, the amazing soundtrack, and why this film hasn’t found the appreciative audience that it really deserves…

    I love Just One of the Guys!!! One of my all-time favorite guilty pleasure cult comedies. I can’t even count how many times I have seen this film. Joyce Hyser was so generous as to be one of my very first 80s interviews when I started doing that many years back. Would’ve loved to have been a part of this episode with you guys!

      Yeah, I remember reading through that interview. She seems like she’d be fun to interview!
