The hilarious Rob Schneider has been a gigolo. He's been an animal. And now a curse will make him something he's never been before -- a woman! Jessica Spencer is the hottest, most popular girl in high school. But she gets a big dose of reality when she wakes up in the body of a 30-something-year-old lowlife male (Schneider) and quickly discovers that trading on your looks isn't so easy when you're a girl who constantly needs a shave. How in the world can Jessica convince her friends it really is her? And how can she change herself back into a teenage girl? THE HOT CHICK is a wild and wacky gender-bending comedy everyone can enjoy -- no matter what sex you are.

Critics Consensus: The Hot Chick's one-note concept gets stretched thin, and a lot of the jokes fall flat.

The movie's devices are so feeble, I think it was written on a napkin in a Denny's the day before...

Enough to make any woman or gay man wish they could beam themselves to planet Zoltron.

A surprisingly good-natured throwback to the '80s heyday of the body-switching genre.

I will say this for the film -- it's in color. And, it was mostly in focus. And I really can't say...

Offensive, vile, and, even worse, not funny.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Hot Chick includes extremely explicit and offensive humor in just about every category. There are "jokes" about anorexia, pedophile priests, erections, cross-dressing boys, homosexuality, and race. Potential messages about acceptance and maturation are forsaken for cheap and easy attempts at humor. Teens drink in a dance club, and later, drink at a strip club. In the dialogue, there is strong sexual content, as parents openly discuss their sex lives, and in one scene, a mother makes sexual advances on a "Mexican gardener" who is actually her daughter. The content oftentimes feels more R-rated than PG-13; but even for older teens, there isn't anything of merit in this pointlessly crass and tritely formulaic attempt at "comedy."
