I wasn't as crazy about this as much reviewers. I gave it three stars. It was cute but no memorable. I would not watch it again. Shelley Long got a bit annoying. Jami Gertz is as cute as can be and Guttenberg was great but overall... It just didn't work well for me.

The Boyfriend School, originally released on VHS under the title "Don't Tell Her It's Me", is a funny and charming romantic comedy. Excellent performances from all, and great chemistry between Jamie Gertz and Steve Guttenberg.

Dont tell her it's the original title - or she wont find it!

"I loved this gentle romantic comedy. I have seen comments that Steve Guttenberg wasnt 'man enough' for the part - must have been written by a straight male reviewer as he's just right for it. There are some really amusing bits to this and it qualifies for the 'comedy' description. Shelly Long is excellent too.

However I add to others comments questioning the change of title. I have borrowed this several times from DVD outlets under its old name and had just about given up hope of finding it on DVD for myself -as I was looking under the old title. What are the distributors playing at - don't they want to sell movies?

It's ironic really that the movie is 'Dont tell her it's me'. Perhaps it should have been 'Dont tell her it's 'Dont tell her it's me': tell her its 'Boyfiend school'!

So as you seem to have tracked this item down in its hidden guise I'd jump at the chance and risk it if you havent seen it! Even though it is a great 'chick flick' I've watched it with males who quite enjoyed it too."
I love this movie!

"We've been waiting forever for this to come out on DVD. I still laugh till I can't breathe when they're trying to be inconspicous and they both duck down and it looks like the car is driverless. Maybe I'm pathetic but this and "Sibling Rivalry" and "Soapdish" and "Delirious" all came out at around the same time, and I think they're the most hilarious movies ever. They don't make them like this anymore. This one is my favorite of all of them. Buy it, you won't regret it."
Glad that it's on DVD, but why the title change?

"I'm glad that this film is finally on DVD. MGM has aimed to please by making this DVD a "flipper disc" to make both modern viewers and those stuck in the past happy. I would have preferred a dual layer, single sided disc, but oh well. Side A is a nice 16X9 Widescreen transfer, Side B is the modified Full Frame version. I think it's nice of MGM to offer both the Widescreen and Full Frame versions of this film, but in this day and age, they really only needed to provide the Widescreen version. The picture quality is excellent, much sharper and clearer than the VHS tape that HBO and Hemdale released in the 90's. My only question is why did they change the title from Don't Tell Her It's Me to The Boyfriend School? The movie hasn't been altered in any other way at all. It doesn't make any sense, especially when the song "Don't Tell Her It's Me" plays over the opening and ending credits. I was extremely pleased to see that MGM decided to include the theatrical trailer on the disc also, which is a bit strange, considering that the original title appears on it. But, no matter what they want to call it, I'm just glad that this film is finally on DVD."
