"Joyce Hyser, affecting a lower register, a short haircut, and a subtle swagger, is not totally convincing as a boy because she's too pretty and too chic."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Innocuously likable little mini-Tootsie."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"The film is a bit too fashion conscious to make a very strong point about appearances not meaning anything."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Just One of the Guys is worth repeated viewing, especially for Hyser's hilarious and charismatic performance."
‑ Nikki Tranter, PopMatters
"Most of the male-female situations Terry finds herself in are played for laughs, and the film eventually sinks into an all too typical conclusion, but the observations regarding the nature of sexuality are interesting and well handled."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Innocuous and highly-spirited screwball comedy about changing genders in a zany nod for advancement. Gottlieb's nutty narrative is inspired in its cheap laughs"
‑ Frank Ochieng, Movie Eye
