The Hot Chick (2002)



Critic Consensus: 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, Jessica must find a way to win the "Cheer Competition," go to the prom, and get her boyfriend back--all while she's still a guy. In the process, she learns how shallow her life has been.more

Critic Reviews for The Hot Chick

All Critics (92) | Top Critics (27)

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.

Top Critic

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.

Top Critic

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.

Ebert & Roeper
Top Critic

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

Full Review… | April 5, 2014
Cinema Crazed

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

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.

Super Reviewer

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.
