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.

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

"Freaky Friday," it's not.

[A] wonderful pile of stench.
December 16, 2002
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.
December 16, 2002
A surprisingly good-natured throwback to the '80s heyday of the body-switching genre.
December 16, 2002
Rob Schneider's infantile cross-dressing routines fill The Hot Chick, the latest gimmick from this unimaginative comedian.
December 16, 2002
Schneider's mugging is relentless and his constant need to suddenly transpose himself into another character undermines the story's continuity and progression.
December 16, 2002
Somehow, Schneider enthusiasts will find their needed escapism in a clueless comedy that has more holes in it than rotted Swiss cheese.

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.
December 15, 2002
Even by the low standards of Saturday Night Live-alumni movies, "The Hot Chick" is simply excruciating. It is loathsome, offensive, vile, and, even worse, it is not funny.
December 15, 2002
Half of the humor goes into the "how could they possibly have thought that was funny?" file.
December 14, 2002
Deep down, I realized the harsh reality of my situation: I would leave the theater with a lower I.Q. than when I had entered.
December 14, 2002
A farce of a parody of a comedy of a premise, it isn't a comparison to reality so much as it is a commentary about our knowledge of films.
December 13, 2002
An admittedly by-the-numbers affair, but garners some hearty and unexpected laughs through the machinations of its premise.
December 13, 2002
It contains the most insufferably lame outtakes of any movie that I can ever remember.
December 13, 2002
Its and pieces of The Hot Chick are so hilarious, and Schneider's performance is so fine, it's a real shame that so much of the movie -- again, as in The Animal -- is a slapdash mess.
December 13, 2002
By the standards of knucklehead swill, The Hot Chick is pretty damned funny.
