"Just Like a Woman" is a 1992 British film by Christopher Monger starring Julie Walters, Adrian Pasdar and Paul Freeman. Gerald, a finance executive (Adrian Pasdar), finds himself thrown out by his wife when she discovers women's underwear in their flat; in fact the clothes belong to him. He takes lodgings with Monica (Julie Walters) who gradually discovers his alter ego, "Geraldine". A sub-plot deals with his boss' plan to defraud their Japanese clients, and how the couple thwart it.

The film is based on the novel "Geraldine, For the Love of a Transvestite" by Monica Jay, and is one of the few "cross-dressing" movies in which the hero is actually a transvestite, unlike "Some Like it Hot", "Tootsie", "Mrs. Doubtfire", and others in which the cross-dresser has an ulterior motive.

The film's title is taken from the song "just Like a Woman" by Bob Dylan.
