Comedy - This movie is exactly what it appears to be, very silly, very
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.
PROFANITY: 5 S-words, 8 A-words. Several others, some sexual. SEX/NUDITY: No sexual activity. Some sexual talk and male nudity (his butt). VIOLENCE: None DRUGS/ALCOHOL: None ACTION: None COMEDY: Quite a bit of the humor worked. But it's more for teens.

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
Review Very Poor "The movie resolutely avoids all the comic possibilities

and prom dates.''

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

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