Despite her masculine sounding name and a love of traditionally male
pursuits (fixing cars, basketball, baseball, driving like a maniac),
there's nothing remotely butch about Tommy Boyd (Betsy Russell) when it
comes to her physique: under the baseball cap and greasy overalls,
there is an absolute babe waiting to get out, as stock car driver Randy
Starr (Gerard Christopher) discovers when he invites Tommy (short for
Tomasina) to pay him a visit at the mansion of his millionaire sponsor
Ernie Leeds Jr (Eric Douglas).
A typically silly 80s romantic sex comedy, Tomboy is predictable, poorly acted and badly directed nonsense, but the oodles of cheap titillation courtesy of the awesomely sexy Russell (and Kristi Somers as her equally hot best friend, dancer Seville Ritz), a naff 'battle of the sexes' story-line, and one of the worst car races in movie history (Tommy's vehicle being equipped with a daft onboard computer and rocket propulsion) help to elevate the film from utter drivel to entertaining cheeze, making it more fun than it really has any right to be.

Scrappy, willful, and fiercely self-reliant spitfire hoyden automobile mechanic Tomasina 'Tommy' Boyd develops a huge crush on cocky race car driving dreamboat hunk Randy Starr after meeting Randy at a party held at a jerky rich guy's house. However, male chauvinist Randy won't take Tommy seriously because she's a gal, so Tommy dares Randy to a high stakes souped-up automobile race in order to win over his respect.
