Don't Tell Her It's Me (also known as The Boyfriend School) is a 1990 comedy film starring Shelley Long, Steve Guttenberg, and Jami Gertz. The film was directed by Malcolm Mowbray and written by Sarah Bird (adapted from her novel, The Boyfriend School).
Gus Kubicek (played by Guttenberg) is a depressed and overweight cartoonist who recently won a battle against Hodgkin’s disease. His caring sister Lizzie Pots (Long), a nosy romance novelist, responds to his sadness by trying to set him up with a suitable woman. Yet to do so she must make him seem more dynamic and attractive. When Gus falls in love with Emily (Gertz), he adopts the persona of Lobo Marunga, a leather-clad biker from New Zealand.
