Storyline

Bill, a slightly quirky, clandestine operative is sent out on a mission to his old hometown. He stops in to visit his sister, Elizabeth, and his timid, movie quoting niece, Suzy, before pursing his latest assignment and while he's there he encounters a magical statue that transforms him into a teenage girl. Wishing to keep his transformation a secret from his sister and the world at large, Bill confides in Suzy about his sudden change and she agrees to help him. Renamed Jessica, "she" now has to deal not only with all the problems that being a teenage girl brings, she also must complete her latest mission. A mission which is made more dangerous now that her target has begun kidnapping teenage girls. Jessica, with Suzy's help, must overcome all of the obstacles that stand in her way while trying to find a way to return to her original form - if that is even possible. Written by James Ward

Trivia

Writers James Ward and Robert Bruce came up with the idea for The Hit Girl back in 1991 and have been talking about the project since that time. The original character concept for the "Hit Man" was based off of their mutual friend James Williams, who was a former marine, strip club bouncer and total badass. The idea of him somehow being turned into a little girl, but still acting being a badass was the inspiration for the movie. He appears in the movie as Bruno and has a fight scene with Jessica.

A must-see for anyone who likes action/comedies and/or body swap films
15 December 2016 | by (portland OR) – See all my reviews

Bill is a middle-aged hit-man who only kills bad people. (Drug lords, sex-slave trafficers, etc.) One night, just before going on another assignment, he stops by to visit his sister, a single mom with a teenage daughter Suzy who's a huge film geek. (Neither of his family members know what he actually does for a living.) During the visit, Suzy tells him about what a hard time she's having in school. Bill thinks she's making a mountain out of a mole hill. She tells him he has no idea what being a teenage girl is like. While resting his hand on an antique statue, Bill off-handedly wishes he had the problems of a teenage girl. The next morning, when he wakes up, Bill discovers to his horror he has magically transformed from a forty-something-year-old man into a fifteen-year-old girl! Now, with help from Suzy, Bill must not only adjust to life as an adult man trapped in a teen girls body, he (or she) must, with somehow complete his/her new assignment without her former physical strength.

The film has great action scenes, comedic moments, and likable characters. The DVD has a commentary track and a short behind-the-scenes skit. If you like action/comedy and/or body swap films, give this a watch.
