Jessica Spencer is the hottest, most popular girl in high school, captain of the cheerleading squad and dating the dreamy quarterback. But she gets a big does of reality when she wakes up in the body of a 30-year-old man! And until she can figure out how to change herself back, Jessica must find a way to win the Cheer Competition, go to the prom, and win her boyfriend back - all as a guy.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This movie is exactly what it appears to be, very silly, very stupid and very dumb. Fortunately that's exactly what it's supposed to be. It's pretty much like any other crude teen comedy with its bathroom and sexual humor.

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Poor "One of the most depressing movie-going experiences I can think of is to sit through about 90 minutes of a so-called "comedy" and not laugh once. Unfortunately, that is becoming an all-too-common occurrence.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Very Poor "The movie resolutely avoids all the comic possibilities of its situation, and becomes one more dumb high school comedy about sex gags and prom dates.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Below Average "There's a certain contrived sweetness to the whole business, in that the film preaches a general acceptance of other people's differences. But at the same time, it supposes the worst about what its audience is going to find funny, and the script is tainted by dumb racial stereotypes and a particularly violent brand of slapstick that too often finds women on the receiving end.''

Newsday  Full Review
Below Average "From that point on, every cross-gender gag that can be contained by a PG-13 rating rolls across the screen like a mudslide. None of them shock like the sight of the great Dick Gregory in a cameo as a men's room attendant counseling Schneider's Jessica about the do's and don'ts of male waste disposal. It's a scene that typifies the off-the-rack, bargain basement level of humor."

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

As the graph shows, "Hot Chick" was enjoyed most by young males and then by young females. This is certainly no surprise since that's exactly the audience this movie is targeted to. However, this movie has a little more appeal to older viewers than most movies of this type. The twentysomething crowd rated it pretty high, especially the males. About half the adults enjoyed "Hot Chick," which is actually quite good for a silly/stupid teen comedy.

If you enjoy silly teen comedies go see "Hot Chick." Your probability of enjoying it, at least to some degree, is pretty good.
