Plot

Just One of the Guys tells the story of Terri Griffith (Joyce Hyser) as an aspiring teenage journalist living in the Arizona suburbs who feels that teachers do not take her seriously because of her good looks. So when she fails to get her dream internship, she comes to the conclusion that it is because she is a girl.

To remedy the situation, she decides to enroll at a rival high school. Her brother Buddy, a sex-obsessed loudmouth, helps her disguise herself as a boy, and keeps tabs on Terri throughout her experiment. After fending off a bully (William Zabka) and a "girlfriend", she manages to be accepted as one of the guys. But then she meets Rick (Clayton Rohner), a gold-hearted nerd. After walking him through an image makeover, she falls for him.
