Los Angeles Times - 12/13/2002
"...The filmmakers have sly fun with all sorts of gender-bending possibilities....[Schneider is] talented and fearless, the driving force of this brash, not-so-predictable comedy..."
Entertainment Weekly - 01/03/2003
"...[A] surprisingly good-natured throwback to the '80s heyday of the body-switching genre..."
Rob Schneider is the titular chick, Jessica, a stuck-up high school prom queen who wakes up one morning trapped in the body of an unattractive 30-year-old man. Thanks to a curse attached to some ancient earrings, Jessica has changed bodies and now must convince hot chick pals April (Anna Faris, of the SCARY MOVIE series) and Keecia (Maritza Murphy) of her true identity before their long, giggly, underwear-filled sleepovers can continue. Meanwhile, Clive, the displaced male, wakes up in Jessica's body (Rachel McAdams) and quickly parlays his hot new form into a lucrative career as a prostitute/stripper. Along the same lines as DEUCE BIGALOW: MALE GIGOLO and THE ANIMAL, viewers can expect the usual Schneider shenanigans and gross bodily humor. What might come as a surprise is the film's underlying sweet nature. While working to restore her original svelte form in time for the big cheerleader competition, Jessica helps save her parents' fading marriage and develops a sense of compassion for the social outsiders she'd previously scorned. Schneider fans, of course, will mainly appreciate his near non-stop prancing and mincing. Fellow SNL alum Adam Sandler executive-produced, and has an amusing cameo as a dread-locked bongo player.
Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:
The Hot Chick
The hilarious Rob Schneider has been a gigolo. He's been an animal. And now a curse will make him something he's never been before -- a woman! Jessica Spencer is the hottest, most popular girl in high school. But she gets a big dose of reality when she wakes up in the body of a 30-something-year-old lowlife male (Schneider) and quickly discovers that trading on your looks isn't so easy when you're a girl who constantly needs a shave. How in the world can Jessica convince her friends (Anna Faris, SCARY MOVIE, SCARY MOVIE 2; Matthew Lawrence, MRS. DOUBTFIRE; Eric Christian Olsen, NOT ANOTHER TEEN MOVIE) it really is her' And how can she change herself back into a teenage girl' THE HOT CHICK is a wild and wacky gender-bending comedy everyone can enjoy -- no matter what sex you are.
