It’s almost criminal that this 1985 comedy — about a teenager named Terri (Joyce Hyser) who attends high school in boy’s clothes to win a journalism contest — grossed only $11.5 million at the box office. Refreshingly nonhomophobic — a disheveled hottie named Rick (Clayton Rohner) is unfazed when ”Terry” dotes on his hair and clothes — Guys is the perfect redux candidate in light of Hollywood’s current appetite for role-reversal flicks. . .so long as it eschews the tabloid-tarnished Lindsay Lohan and casts the phenomenal Amber Tamblyn as the girl in drag.
