The Hot Chick

( 15 )

Overview

When a beautiful yet snotty teen finds herself in the body of a hairy, unattractive man, she must find a way back to her old self. Such is the premise for Touchstone Pictures' The Hot Chick, starring Rob Schneider. Although the movie received mixed reviews, the DVD is worth a look.

Overview

When a beautiful yet snotty teen finds herself in the body of a hairy, unattractive man, she must find a way back to her old self. Such is the premise for Touchstone Pictures' The Hot Chick, starring Rob Schneider. Although the movie received mixed reviews, the DVD is worth a look. To start, the film is presented beautifully in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen, complete with bright colors and rich black tones. The 5.1 Dolby Digital track is adequate, yet not superb. Sounds fall a bit flat and dialog competes with a loud soundtrack. The scene-specific audio commentary by director Tom Brady, of The Animal fame, proves to be entertaining, yet rather pedestrian and not very educational. "The Hot Chick Yearbook" contains many behind-the-scene featurettes. First off is "Becoming Jessica," a look at how Schneider became a beautiful teen girl, on the inside. Then there's the antithesis: "Becoming Clive," how a hot girl became a balding guy. "The Hot Chicks" looks at the mentality behind the creation of the film's bratty-girl clique. Stuntwork is examined in "Physical Education." Fifteen deleted scenes, including an alternate ending, are mildly worthy of view time. A gag reel would have been more enjoyable.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
If The Hot Chick had come out two years later, it might have concentrated on the actress playing the actual "chick," Rachel McAdams, and relegated Rob Schneider's fading star to the secondary role. But in 2002, McAdams had yet to be identified as the next luminescent young talent, so she has teasingly little screen time here. She leaves the larger chunk to the SNL vet, who hams it up as a teenage girl trapped in the body of a criminal low-life. Schneider's not terrible -- in fact, he does some likeable work as the displaced Jessica, when he's not going way over the top. It's just too bad the plot has to exile the charismatic McAdams in order to follow Jessica's brain, rather than her body. The Hot Chick isn't much different from most body-swapping comedies, which find "freshness" through small variations on the same formula. It does distinguish itself, however, by being weirdly committed to grappling with issues of sexuality -- which naturally arise when the body swapping crosses genders. Yeah, there are the cheap jokes, like the bartender who always catches Schneider acting feminine in suggestive ways, and even the mean-spirited jokes, like the boyfriend who blows kisses to the person in the mascot costume, thinking it's his girlfriend, then becomes nauseous upon realizing it's a man. But more interesting are the non-judgmental episodes of possible homosexuality, such as Jessica's younger brother being accepted despite dressing up in his sister's clothes, and Anna Faris' April developing genuine romantic feelings for her best friend while she's trapped inside Schneider's body. Despite these few gestures toward enlightenment, however, The Hot Chick is a lot better described as a lowest common denominator yukfest. Jokes regularly miss, and caricatures rule the day -- most notably the awful parents of the teenage girls.
Entertainment Weekly - Scott Brown
A surprisingly good-natured throwback to the '80s heyday of the body-switching genre.

    Hot Chick

    Hot chick is a hilarious movie. It is one of the best comedies ever. It has exciting parts over and over again non-stopped. (Rob Snyder) is the main character in this movie. Anna Farris is another character in this movie in which is very funny. The story is about Rob Snyder and Anna Farris; the movie begins when Anna Farris is shopping in the mall with her friends. She finds these earrings she likes and wants to buy them but she can¿t, so she steals them when the manager isn¿t looking. Then her friends and her go to the gas station to get some gas, and that¿s when they run into Rob Snyder right when he¿s in the middle of robbing the gas station. They think he works there and he just goes along with it and fills up their gas tank. Then the girls leave and go to her house. That¿s when Rob finds one of the earrings lying on the ground. They both put it on and the go to sleep. But when they wake up they are In Different bodies. That is when Anna tries to go on her hunt to find who is in her body. And she tries to do without blowing her cover to her parents.

    It really IS a great movie

    Ok. I really don't like Rob Schnider movies all that much. I thought that both Deuce Bigalow and The Animal were horrible. But the Hot Chick? Completely hilarious. I saw it opening night at the theater, and I don't think I have laughed so hard in a movie in a very long time. This movie takes you back to high school and makes you realize why you are so glad to be outta there! And who can resist Adam Sandler as a rastafarian drummer in Angie Stone's shop? Or Rob Schnider trying to be girly? I don't want to give away too much of the movie, though. Y'all need this movie like a cop needs a doughnut. On the real.
