Movie Info

In this light-weight adolescent adventure, busty Tommy Boyd (Betsy Russell), a tough-gal mechanic who runs a garage in East L.A., would rather spend time riding her motorcycle and playing B-ball with the street kids than fussing with fashions and other feminine cliches. She does find time to make love with her handsome boyfriend Randy Starr (model Jerry Dinome), a racecar driver who is prettier than she is. Unfortunately for her, he gets tired of her masculine ways, and they begin to fight. Eventually, they decide to solve their differences on the racetrack of the Daytona 500.

Critic Reviews for Tomboy

All Critics (3)

Tommy's one-note and completely irrational, but Russell captures the primary colors with ease, fulfilling her obligation as the focal point of the production.

There were a lot of silly sex comedies in the '80s, but Tomboy surely marks the nadir of the genre.

Audience Reviews for Tomboy


This romantic comedy is just what the title says, about a "Tomboy". There are a couple of good romantic scenes, and a bit of fun, but in the end it's all for nothing. Overall, it's watchable, but not a good movie.
