HEAVY MIDNITES: Just One of the Guys (30th Anniversary, plus cast reunion!)

NOTE: this show will place at 10:30pm, rather than midnight. Director Lisa Gottlieb, plus stars Joyce Hyser, Ayre Gross, Clayton Rohner, Toni Hudson, John Apicella, Deborah Goodrich and Billy Jacoby in person.

A video store ‘n HBO memory from the days when a youth-oriented comedy could show a bunch of nudity and be rated PG-13, this ‘80s staple provides screwball laughs while also having pointed commentary about sexual discrimination, queer politics and shoving socks down your shorts. She’s 18 — she’s smart, good looking and has it all. And now Terri Griffith (Joyce Hyser) is about to set off an epidemic of comic hysteria when she enrolls in a new school as Just One of the Guys. It’s a reverse teen Tootsie at Hormone High, as we sneak a peek into the locker room and behind bedroom doors to discover what dudes are really talking about. Cue the fashion montage, madcap antics and gender-bending hijinks as Terri goes where no girl has gone before. With Billy Jacoby as the sex-obsessed loudmouth little brother, Toni Hudson as the best friend, Clayton Rohner as Terri’s pet project turned love interest, William “Karate Kid” Zabka as the class bully and Twin Peaks’ Sherilyn Fenn as the foxiest babe in town!
Dir. Lisa Gottlieb, 1985, 35mm, 90 min.
