Movie Info

Two kids with nothing in common are brought together in a very unexpected way in this comedy. Nell (Samaire Armstrong) is a pretty but hopelessly geeky teenage girl who loves Shakespeare and wants little more than to study literature at Yale when she graduates from high school in a few months Woody (Kevin Zegers), who lives next door, is the quarterback on the school's football team, and seems like a sure bet to land a lucrative football scholarship despite the fact he isn't especially bright. … More

As predictable as it is blatantly enjoyable.

All this movie needs is a choreographed dance number to complete the circle.

There's little doubt that Boy Girl Thing was assembled by someone who was obviously blindfolded and possibly drugged.

Strangely enough, it isn't the lack of originality in this body switch comedy that irritated me most, it is that I didn't believe any of it.

Audience Reviews for It's a Boy Girl Thing

It's the old switcheroo theme and it's as cliche as it can get. It's actually mildly funny and the characters are likable.

Characters and dialogue were boring. flat one-dimensional stereotypes. Nothing clever or original here. Surpisingly fun anyway.

Director: Nick Hurran

Summary: A visit to a natural history museum proves catastrophic for high school rivals Nell (Samaire Armstrong), the overachiever, and Woody (Kevin Zegers), the jock, when an ancient Aztec statue casts a spell that causes them to switch bodies. Now, the pair is forced to experience life from a different perspective and see exactly what it's like to walk in the other's shoes.

My Thoughts: "I thought this movie gave a nice spin to Freaky Friday. It was funny, cute, and entertaining. I laughed throughout it. It was predictable as most of these teen comedies are, but it was just a fun movie to watch. I would watch it again. There is the jock, the smart nerdy girl, the head cheerleader, the jock sidekick, and the girl who wants to be popular and noticed. So its your average teen high school movie just with a twist. Although, I was surprised to see Sharon Osbourne having a role in this movie. She plays the jocks (Kevin Zegers) mother. She was mediocre. Not bad. All in all it was a good comedy high school flick."
