5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful adaptation of the Chaim Potok novel.
This movie version of the famous novel about the friendship that develops between an Hasidic boy and an Orthodox Jewish boy remains faithful to the book in all important respects. The cast, headed by Rod Steiger and Maxmillian Schell, is excellent. Robby Benson and Barry Miller play the two boys, and are so wonderful in their roles that it's difficult to imagine anyone else doing them. Rod Steiger as Reb Saunders is perfect in every respect- right down to the Yiddish accent. His dance at the wedding of a couple in his congregation is one of the most expressive moments I've ever seen in motion pictures. The dignity, the extreme sorrow, and the great joy of being alive and human are all there. The only weakness in the film, if you can call it that, is the choice of Maximillian Schell to play Reuven's father, Professor Malter. He gives a fine performance, but there is no way anyone would believe he was a Jew. It's distracting, given that Professor Malter becomes a dedicated Zionist in the face of the decimation of the Jews in Europe. I am far from saying that Max is a Nazi, looks like one or talks like one- only that we can tell that he is German but it's hard to see any Jewishness in his performance at all. However, the movie is over-all excellent, if a bit talky, and belongs in the collection of any Jew or literary cognoscenti.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Touching Film About The Hassidic Lifestyle
This 1982 film, based on the novel by Chaim Potok, himself a Jew,
is a moving and detailed adaptation. Stars Robbie Benson and Rod Steiger. I saw this film on PBS channel 28. The Jewish soul of
this film shines through beautifully and sadly, effectively using Hassidic clothing and glimpses of the lifestyle, which is
oddly at variance with the rapidly modernizing New York City of the World War II Era. Robby Benson delivers a fine performance
as the American young man who befriends a Hassidic Jew and assimilates the Jewish lifestyle. Their friendship is rocky at best. His Jewish friend has been raised by a strict father who
upholds the traditonal and orthodox way of life (he's even got him engaged to another Jewish girl)ad shuns modern thinking. He is against the Zionist movement which sought to make Israel its own free state, but the Father in this film believes only God and his Messiah can deliver them. Never has a movie been more embracing of the Jewish faith and old traditions than this movie.
Hebrew music is authentically used. The overwhelming sadness and horror hits you when they feature clips from the slaughter of thousands of Jews in the Holocaust during Hitler's Nazi regime in Europe.

With a sad, reflective mood and a long run of time, this film does seem to be straight from the equally long novel. But it's a great film and I recommend anyone who is a fan of Potok or Robby Benson the actor. The relationship between the boys and the difference between their fathers- one father is old-fashioned and fiery while the other is peaceful, but modern. It's a look at the difference between the two distinct worlds. In the end, the Jewish boy who always wanted to practice psychiatry, is allowed by a father who finally consents. It's a moving and poignant film. The acting and the script, lifted from the book, is quite good. Why did'nt this get any recognition in the Oscars of 1982 ? Or did it ? This film is before my time but it's superb and I feel it's Oscar worthy material. You will see what I mean.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very moving
I just saw The Chosen on TV. I had seen it once before but watched it again. It is a fascinating and well-acted story of the friendship between two teen-aged boys, a Chasidic Jew, and an observant, but secular Jew.

One reviewer complained that Maximilian Schell was too German to play a Jew. I found him very believable as the Zionist father of one of the boys. Rod Steiger as the Orthodox Rabbi was amazing. I didn't see the opening credits and couldn't guess that he was playing the part. Steiger usually chews the scenery, but here he is very restrained and moving as the father who sacrifices closeness with his son for the boy's own good.

This is a film with many levels that bears watching over again. I have not read the book, and others here have said it is better. Movies are a different experience, and this one is very good.

5-0 out of 5 stars ahhhh, yes.
This movie was written with all of the feel-good kind of action that this man can muster. Robby Benson, go, go for me and eveyrone who must be subject to this kind of primordial browbashing. It throws me for a loop when I see it in action and by all means, it just makes sense.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Adaptation.
'The Chosen' the film is a good adaptation of the book. It brings the mood and athmosphere of that era. The best scene is when the father lets go of his son in the ending. Very touching just like the book. ... Read more

Though marketed as a raunchy teen sex comedy à la Porky's, Just One of the Guys is an amusing and well-acted comic riff on gender roles. Believing that she's lost a journalism contest because she's a woman, high school student Joyce Hyser disguises herself as a boy in order to see how the other half lives. Her investigation leads her to discover some interesting truths about how men and women treat each other in social and romantic situations. The screenplay by coproducers Jeff Franklin (a veteran TV scribe) and Dennis Feldman nicely balances the sex-driven gags with more character-driven material, which is well delivered by Hyser, Clayton Rohner as her eccentric pal, and especially Billy Jacoby as her perpetually aroused brother; the capable cast also includes Sherilyn Fenn and Arye Gross. Eighties music fans should also appreciate the soundtrack, which features tracks by Berlin, Lindsay Buckingham, and the Stooges. --Paul Gaita ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Haven't we seen this before?
I just saw this movie and found it quite hysterical. There are some movies where the exact same thing happens, just different details. For anyone who has young children or siblings, the have heard of the Disney Original movie "Motorcrossed". In "Motorcrossed" a girl disguises as boy (cuts off her hair, wears baggy clothes, etc...)So she can race in a tournament. At the end of the movie her identity is revealed and the boy who's been helping her and who she's been falling in love with hates her.

Wait, where did we see this? Oh yes, In "Just one of the guys" it seems like "Motorcrossed" is a direct replica of "Just one of the Guys" with a few trivial differences. And what is even more surprising is that both Terry (Just one of the guys) and Andy (Motorcrossed) get the guy in the end. Isn't this just too good to be true?!

Without sarcasm now, I personally think this a although a little John Hughes-y, it is never the less funny and romantic. For any person who loves teenage romance movies (i.e.: Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, Can't buy me love) I am telling you see this movie. I promise you will fall in love with Terry (as a girl or a boy).

5-0 out of 5 stars Just one of the best
I'll skip the "over-the-top" superlatives of some of the other reviewers in this group, but "Just One of the Guys" is a fun, intelligent comedy with a host of well-drawn characters large and small. It follows the formula -- but it doesn't. Its comedy is three-dimensional. Although it has much to say about teen angst and growing up, it never takes itself too seriously, so we can laugh along the way. Even the class bully is handled with a sense of humor. You hate him, but that's okay because so does everyone else.
Is the movie dated? Yes, in many respects it represents its decade -- the 80s. But its humor and its message have not dimmed with the years. It's not just a kid's movie, either. I've watched it many times, and at well over 40, I'm no kid. As for Joyce Hyser, she carries the film with grace and humor and a range that would make most of the "big stars" of the movies today jealous (if they understood what she was doing). And -- as has been noted by another reviewer -- only Leonard Maltin among the "official" critics gives this movie a chance. I hope it comes out on DVD, and that it includes an interview with its star and some of the other principals. A real sleeper. Enjoy!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Just One More 80's Teen Comedy
1985's Just One Of The Guys is an implausible, but amusing tale of an aspiring journalist, Terry (Joyce Hyser), who writes an essay about a female disguising herself as a male jock. The essay is rejected and to rebuke the bias she believes was the cause the rejection, tries to live out her premises. Getting a short haircut, wearing baggy clothes and deepening her voice, Terry goes undercover at high school. Since Ms. Hyser hardly has a boyish body, much of the plot revolves around her trying to hide this fact, especially in the boys locker room. Terry has a boyfriend, but she ends up falling for a quiet loner type guy Rick (Clayton Rohner). Finally Terry can't hide her feelings for Rick and the prom, she reveals her true identity by flashing Rick. The best part of the film is the interaction between Terry and her brother Buddy (Billy Jayne). Buddy is a complete pervert with Playboy centerfolds plastered all over his bedroom walls and his lines are the funniest in the film.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great flick must see comedy film.
This movie was one of my favorites. She does the one thing she has to do to become a noticed writer. Which was being a guy!!! Before she was a portrayed as a male, everyone assumed she was nothing but all good looks and no brains. She proves them all to be wrong when she comes up with greatest article in the end. A must see for 80's movie fans.

5-0 out of 5 stars Can You Put a Price on Dignity?
This is the question I constantly ask myself while watching this masterpiece. Rick Morehouse, played by the legendary Clayton Rohner, commands respect when on screen. Rick is a true James Brown enthusiast who feels an impulsive need to dance like a fruit anytime he hears the Godfather of Soul. This movie really has so much to offer but the dignified performance given by Clayton Rohner is what truly captivates me and steals my heart, my mind, and my tears. A true epic. To not buy this movie would be a disservice to you, your family, and the American film industry. Thank you Clayton Rohner. You give me hope, strength, and most of all dignity. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent sequel.
This movie was as good as the first one. Fans get their first look at Jason, who is avenging his mother's death. Jason was misunderstood. This movie is basically like the first one. Another good horror.

3-0 out of 5 stars "The body count continues."
After a pre-credit sequence that nicely severs itself from the previous film's storyline, Friday the 13th Part 2 jumps forward five years to focus on a new group of victims to be opening a "Counselor Boot Camp" on the accursed Crystal Lake. The raw wounds of the previous debacle are still sore points with the locals, who are leery of a possible new 'Camp Blood', and with good reason. Turns out that Jason Voorhees (whose burlap sack of a mask had 1981 theater audiences giggling and making joking references to David Lynch's then current hit The Elephant Man) did not drown in Crystal Lake like his mother believed, but has been living like an animal in the surrounding woods while waiting for the opportunity to continue enacting his revenge for his mother's murder. As the advertisements promised, 'the body count continues'!

First time director Steve Miner (Lake Placid, Halloween H20) keeps screenwriter Ron Kurz's ultra-flimsy 'story' moving at a gallop. Clocking in at an economical 87 minutes, Friday the 13th Part 2 is the shortest film of the series and a fairly entertaining one. Amy Steel (April Fool's Day, The Powers of Matthew Starr) makes an engaging herione and Stu Charno (Christine) provides, for a change, non-irritating and plot natural comic relief as the camp's merry prankster. Harry Manfredini's now famous score remains a rollicking rollercoaster ride of a horror movie composition. Fans may love it, but non-fans will only find it run-of-the-kill.

5-0 out of 5 stars F13 PART 2 (BEST SEQUAL)
PART 2 puts all the others sequals to shame!
Good points:
crazy faceless killer living in the woods
creepy atmosphere
extremely bizarre ending
best Friday the 13th actress, Amy Steel, as "Ginny"
return of "Crazy Ralph"
scarriest death scene: Vikki (when Jason hides under covers)!!
creepiest cat & mouse chase (with Ginny)

Of course this movie was nowhere near perfect. Not much information is given to the audience & the ending leaves you hanging. And what's up with the intro? The scene with Alice was unrealistic & rather pointless. Jason couldn't possibly know how to track down his mother's killer.

Too much was cut from this movie as well. In the original script, Mrs Voorhees's eyes were suppose open! That would have opened up doors for the following sequals (then in Part 3 she would return?)

After part 2, the FRIDAY THE 13th plot goes somewhere else.
For instance he looks completely different in part 3 and then again in part 4.

PART 3 was good but strays away from the original storyline (Chris and her stupid encounter with Jason a few years back). I never understood why that story was introduced. oh well

5-0 out of 5 stars Jason's REAL first appearance is met by a beautiful new DVD!
Everyone knows Part 2 is the first OFFICIAL Jason movie since it was only his mother who was the killer in the first one. Having said that, Part 2 is almost as good as the first, if not a little bit scarier thanks to the direction of Steve Miner. The cast of young characters are like-able and fun, and it works as a nice balance between the threat that is Jason. He's not the hockey masked maniac he would later become, but he's very frightening as a mentally disturbed freak who roams the woods wearing a sheet over his head. The climax is a real show down that would later become the highlight of these movies. This is a classic slasher of the early 80's and the new DVD does it a lot of justice. Although the old VHS tapes were in much better shape than some of the other movies in the series, Part 2 does look much better on DVD. The trailer is a lot like the trailer for the first one, but still nice to have. No other extras of course, but at least we have a nice sharp transfer.

2-0 out of 5 stars At Least We Get Jason In This
Friday The 13th was a surprise box office hit in 1980, so a sequel was inevitable. While the original film was a rather decent and raw horror film, this sequel begins what is to be the typical in slasher/horror/Friday The 13th sequels. Most of the rawness and vividness of the first film will never be recaptured, and they become the quintessential hack and slash horror sequels. Beginning with this one. The only thing that makes this sequel different from the original is the introduction of Jason. If you remember, his mother was the killer in the original. As far as slasher films go, this one is pleasing. Nothing new. As expected, there really isn't a story here. Did you expect one?. There's a camp. There's some camp councelors. There's some campers. There's a homicidal killer with a fondness for gardening tools and other sharp instruments. Voila!. You got yourself a sequel!. We get a decent lead performance by Amy Steel as Jenny. She's not great, but she does the part good enough. This film is before Jason gets his infamous hockey mask. If you ask me, Jason's sheet he wears in this film with one eye hole(reminiscent of The Elephant Man) is far more scarier than the hockey mask. That's just me. What do you all think?. We are bombarded with more of the same babes in the woods getting knifed, strangled, sliced & diced. There's even a twofer when Jason gets two campers at once. Any guesses as to what they were doing?. It's sure to please any Friday fan and slasher fan. Other than that, why bother?. ... Read more
