Could have been stupid, but was actually very funny, 16 May 2003
Author: cine-11 from Ogdensburg, NY, USA
Yet another variation on the "switching bodies" theme (Freaky Friday, Like Father Like Son, etc). This one was different, though, in that it involved a transgender switch and that, along with convincing acting by Rob Schneider, made it work. A little slow to start, but once it got going, I found myself laughing repeatedly throughout. A comedy well worth watching for lots of laughs.

Surprisingly funny comedy, 26 June 2003
Author: miguelsanchez69 from NYC
First off let it be said, I'm a pretty big fan of comedies. I rather enjoyed Schneider's 1st film Deuce Bigelow, but gagged at the supreme awfulness of the Animal. The script to the Hot Chick is surprisingly good and well-organized (though it's premise is basically a raunchier riff on 80s body switch movies like vice-versa and freaky friday without any moralizing). It may not be original (similar to my other favorite comedy so far this year, old school) and it may not win any oscars , but it's funny, follows an established formula well, and doesn't deteriorate in the third act like a lot of comedies I've seen as of late into moralizing or seemingly tacked on drama. Rob Schneider and Anna Farris are incredibly funny together. Watch for a cameo by Adam Sandler. If youre in the mood for citizen kane or next year's oscar winners, look elsewhere. If you're in the mood for good, dumb, fairly raunchy fun to watch with a couple of friends - this movie's great.

Awesome!, 13 August 2006
Author: rose_81 from Falkenberg, Sweden
I'll never forget the first time I saw this movie... I was at home, a bit bored, so I looked through the TV-listings and saw that this movie was coming on in a few minutes. I remembered having seen the trailer and was mildly interested, so since nothing else was on I decided to give it a chance, and... oh-my-God! From beginning to end I was laughing so hard I almost couldn't breathe. It was a long time since I was so pleasantly surprised by a comedy. Rob Schneider is a bloody comic genius. His portrait of a high-school cheerleader trapped inside a man's body is such a bullseye! Movie critics around the world may say that this is garbage, but it's really become one of my all-time favorite comedies. I just love it.

Surprisingly Funny, 30 May 2003
Author: livingdeadgirl_13 from vancouver
A very popular girl named Jessica(Rachel McAdams)accidently switches body with a man who is also a criminal(Rob Schneider)because of a pair of magical earrings. Now Jessica is trapped in a man's body and along with her best friend April(Anna Faris)she must find her body before it's too late but on the good side, Jessica learns a lot about herself, her family and her friends that she did not know before. I didn't have any high expectations for this movie but surprisingly it wasn't so bad and it had a few very funny moments. Oh, and by the way, Anna Faris is the real hot chick in this movie! Anyways, I would give The Hot Chick 6.5/10.

A funny, interesting movie, 5 August 2003
Author: maggien from Tucson, AZ
I just saw this movie and I really liked it. It is funny, and yes, painful
at times. But it has an interesting message - there is a scene where
Jessica's little brother Booger is running after the family in the red high
heels. Does his parents have a fit? No. His dad says, "if you are going to
wear those, you better learn to run in them." Accepting and warning at the
same time. You also notice at the end of the movie that the girls that were
enemies at the beginning of the movie, have become friends by the end. They
overcome their differences, work together, and resolve a
This is a good movie, and I recommend it. Not every film you watch has to be Oscar level. Entertainment and education can come in many forms.

Good Light Humor!, 5 January 2003
Author: the_insainiak from Brisbane, Australia
I haven't seen a movie as funny as this in ages. What a classic. The actors all played their roles well, especially Rob Schnider. When I first saw the teaser poster for this film, I thought it looked very odd. I actually said I wouldn't watch it, or even bother with it, but I was pleasently surprised. Just good, light humor. Highly recommended! It is a comedy the way there used to be made before American Pie came along.

The Hot Chick is frigin hilarious ., 16 December 2007
Author: dobbin-4 from Australia
Another movie not properly appreciated by people taking comedy movies too seriously in this film starring Rob Schniedor. The film is extremely funny and shows movies with stupid plots can be pretty good. The story is about a girl who gets a dose of reality when she gets transferred into a mans body. The story is very good and good performances from all the actors make this movie a very enjoyable experience. The movie is definitely light but so is a lot of other stuff. Fans of Rob Schneider and Adam Sandler will enjoy this movie as it is funny, witty and overall a good movie. Overall watch this movie and you will not be disappointed. I rate this movie 64%.

Better than "The Animal" at least, 9 June 2005
Author: movieman_kev from United States
Jessica Spencer (Rachel McAdams from "Mean Girls") heists a pair of
earrings from an tribal shop at the mall. After a run-in with another
robber at a gas station (Rob Schneider), she loses one earring from the
set. Turns out these jewelery pieces are magical and allow
body-switching. We're dealing with a bad news/good news scenario here.
the bad new being that the writer is the same responsible for "The
Animal" travesty. The good news is this is considerably better.
However, Anna Faris shouldn't make any more comedies, in every single
comedy I've seen her in she is capable of a whole range of.. ONE
expression, that would be being shocked/ Surprised, which would be fine
if she didn't use it about 50 times per movie. But if gay stereotypes,
fat jokes, and dick humor is your cup of tea By all means help
yourself. You know what? I probably made it sound better than it is
actually. It all honesty, this is merely an alright film even if it
does feel a bit tame for a Schneider movie.
DVD Extras: Commentary by Director Tom Brady; 15 Deleted scenes; 5 featurettes (Becoming Jessica, Becoming Clive, the Hot Chicks, Guest Speakers, and Physical Education); a "Starlight" Music Video by Zed; Trailer for "Shanghai Knights"
My Grade: C+
My DVD extras Grade: B-

Another Happy Madison triumph!, 28 February 2004
Author: duntrune from rainville USA
*** This review may contain spoilers ***
Other than Joe Dirt, I haven't seen a Happy madison flick that I haven't laughed out loud at throughout, this is no exception. Yes, silly physical slapstick, the mom falling, people getting hit, yes, yes, it's been done a million times, as has the tired plotline, but Schneider plays it so well, you can't help but love it. His teenage girl is hilarious, and everyone turns in a pretty good job, especially the much mentioned Anna Faris, who can, despite Scary Movie's evidence to the contrary, act, and very well, too. Adam Sandler's cameo is pretty good "If you have any more questions, I'll be in the back sleeping. Wait. This is the back." "I didn't think you could hear me!" and of course, the tie in lines "That's a HUGE B**CH!" (Where was "We can do it!") and Rachel McAdams is a mondo hotty, along with Anna Faris, so really, I can't see what anyone COULDN'T like about this movie, people need to lighten up, loosen the ties, mellow out, and just laugh once in awhile.

A guilty pleasure, 8 April 2003
I enjoyed "The Hot Chick." What can I say, it is a guilty pleasure. When I went to see it I figure it may be amusing but I found myself laughing quite often during the movie. Rob Schneider was very good in the role of the female who ends up in the body of an older man. Anne Faris and Rachel McAdams are quite good in the supporting roles.
