Terry Griffith ( Joyce Hyser) seems to have it all: looks, popularity, the perfect college boyfriend, and an article that's a shoo-in to win her a summer internship at the local newspaper – or so she thinks.
But then her journalism teacher passes her article up in favour of a couple of pieces written by boys, she is convinced that sexism is to blame. Determined to win the internship at any cost, Terry goes undercover at a rival high school to resubmit her article – as a boy.
But she finds unexpected complications.
Frank Westmore, David Quashnick & Marvin C Thompson (as Tommy Thompson) were the makeup artists.
