The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
For the price of a ticket, and 100 minutes of your time, how many laughs are enough to qualify as just compensation? Will four or five do? Let's be generous and count five.

Village Voice
The cast, save the charisma-free Schneider, is uniformly hilarious, and deserves classier high jinks than this Juwanna Tootsie roll.

If you pitch your expectations at an all time low, you could do worse than this oddly cheerful -- but not particularly funny -- body-switching farce.

The A.V. Club
Schneider and director/co-writer/Animal vet Tom Brady continue to subscribe to the notion that any joke worth making is worth beating to death, but there's still something strangely endearing about Schneider's willingness to do anything for a laugh.

New York Daily News
If you're in an especially generous mood, you'll give in to a few laughs. By the end, though, you just may find yourself pining for the good old days of Pauly Shore.

This unabashedly stupid comedy is, well, unabashedly stupid.
30
Variety
At best routinely assembled -- at worst barely competent. The slapstick is labored, and the bigger setpieces flat.
30
L.A. Weekly
Marks no discernible improvement on its predecessors "Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo" and "The Animal," though the sight of the deeply unprepossessing Schneider all dolled up for girlie business is good for a few shallow chuckles.
20
Film Threat
This movie is a 21st century take on the tired switched-persons genre, with predictable and obvious gag-inducing results.
10
Chicago Reader
Flimsy transformation comedy.
