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

Movie Info

Jessica Spencer, a somewhat mean-spirited teen, is convinced that she has the perfect life. She's the hottest, most popular girl in high school, captain of the cheerleading squad and dating the dreamy quarterback. But she gets a big dose of reality when--due to a spell--she wakes up in the body of a thirty-year-old man. She quickly discovers that trading on your looks isn't so easy when you're a girl who constantly needs a shave. Moreover, until she can figure out how to change herself back,

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

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 anymore for it beyond that.

By the standards of knucklehead swill, The Hot Chick is pretty damned funny.

Instead of the easy laughs, Schneider and Brady are going for something a little deeper.

I didn't expect a masterpiece, but it's basic Rob Schneider at his worst.

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

There is exactly ONE scene worth watching in Rob Schneider's latest pathetic romp... is it worth ten bucks? No way in hell.

It's interesting that Rob Schneider's comedies are getting progressively worse as they are released.

It's sad and depressing when in order to get a laugh a Hollywood movie has to stoop to replaying gags that would have made the Three Stooges blush.

For those who pride themselves on sophisticated, discerning taste, this might not seem like the proper cup of tea, however it is almost guaranteed that even the stuffiest cinema goers will laugh their *** off for an hour-and-a-half.

The Cold Turkey would've been a far better title.

Rob Schneider é melhor em criar premissas interessantes do que em desenvolvê-las. Em um universo ideal, ele seria obrigado a repassar suas idéias para que pessoas mais talentosas pudessem utilizá-las.

Basically harmless and grudgingly funny.

Couldn't someone take Rob Schneider and have him switch bodies with a funny person?

Yes, it was bad. But I laughed.

It's push-the-limits teen comedy, the type written by people who can't come up with legitimate funny, and it's used so extensively that good bits are hopelessly overshadowed.

What's the most positive thing that can be said about the new Rob Schneider vehicle? Well, it's not as pathetic as The Animal.

The movie spends more time with Schneider than with newcomer McAdams, even though her performance is more interesting (and funnier) than his.

Even for its genre and the possibility of a counterprogramming miracle, it looms a wobbly entry.

Audience Reviews for The Hot Chick

31/07/2010 (TELEVISION)

No disappointment here to be honest because it delivered exactly what I expected judging from the cover. Definitely funny and it's just a nice light flick that gave me a break from my usual choices which was nice.

Not a bad idea and it does have enough to keep you in your seats to check out what happens next, so it's a fairly good watch.

I thought it was hilarious crap! A pretty entertaining situation and I really get a kick out of dumb stuff like this. I had lot's of fun watching this get stupid and stupider. A good choice for a groupie watch.

Thoroughly enjoyable, just at times a little too much for me, especially with all the grossness that Rob Schneider puts into some of his performances.
