Jessica Spencer is the hottest, most popular girl in high school. Jessica, her best friend April, and a couple of other hot girls Lulu and Keecia visit the mall to hang out and do some shopping. They enter a new age store, where they check out a pair of ancient earrings. Unbeknownst to Jessica, these are magical ones set in ancient Abyssinia. A princess known as Princess Nawa is disgusted by the groom of her arranged marriage and switches bodies with a slave girl by means of an enchanted set of earrings. Since the earrings are not for sale, Jessica steals them. But the next morning she gets a big dose of reality when she wakes up in the body of a 30-something lowlife male, Clive, a career criminal. Clive finds himself in Jessica's body. Now it's up to Jessica (in Clive's body) to find a way to get her body back, while Clive (in Jessica's body) takes advantage of his new body to set in motion a crime spree to put the blame on Jessica!Written by

The actor who plays Billy (Matthew Lawrence) is the same actor who played Robin Williams' son, Chris Hillard, in Mrs. Doubtfire (1993). See more »
"Ling Ling" is a stereotypical Chinese name and does not come close to a Korean name. When Keesha's mother first appears in the movie, she is dressed in traditional Chinese clothing and not Korean. At the graduation scene at the end, however, Keesha is wearing correct Korean traditional dress. See more »
I wasn't really looking forward to this movie at all. I haven't seen a lot of Rob Schneider, but what little I did see was usually grossout. Needless to say I was expecting more of that with this little flick.
The movie though turned out to be...well pretty awesome. It's not going to win an oscar, but it's certainly far from the movie I expected to see. Sure there were the cliches (popular blonde cheerleaders, fat chicks with food in their hands at all times, scary goths)...but somehow they worked together. It turns out that those cliches are simply empty pictures that we get of other people. Who know a Rob Schneider movie could manage to point that out??
As for Mr. Schneider....well he was pretty darn good. I thought it would be incredibly silly watching him as a girl. It was at times, but overall I think this movie pulled out some of his best comic acting. He was able to be sensitive and funny and pull it off believably. I'd like to see him at least nominated for his role ;)
The other actors in the movie...mostly a bunch of nameless beauties...also pulled their weight. The characters were pretty well fleshed out (which was nice to see since my last movie was MAID IN MANHATTEN where no thought at all seemed to have been put into character development.) Matthew Lawrence was looking hot as usual :)
I give the movie 9 out of 10 stars. See it if you want to laugh. It's actually worth the money :)
