Content:

(RoRo, PCPC, HoHo, OO, PaPa, LLL, VV, SS, N, A, DD, M) Romantic worldview with strong politically correct content regarding homosexual cross-dressing politics and making the abnormal normal, including pagan witches who use black magic; about 20 mostly light obscenities, 13 light profanities, urinating scenes, implied vomiting, and sounds of passing gas; strong slapstick violence includes man bumps head on car hood several times, man tumbles down stadium stairs and hits head several times, woman mugs man to take his money, groin hits, savage pillow fight, and man head-butts woman; sexually frustrated married woman tries to kiss another man who’s really her teen daughter trapped in a man’s body, husband complains to gardener about his non-existent sex life with his wife, depicted cross dressing, two high school “girls” kiss passionately, older sister eventually accepts young brother’s cross-dressing, and other homosexual references; upper male nudity, rear male nudity, women in skimpy outfits, and high school girl in man’s body shows friends her new private parts, which is shot from the rear; alcohol use, underage drinking and husband accuses wife of hitting the bottle; smoking and references to marijuana use; and, robbery, shoplifting, lying, and magical earrings enable people to switch bodies.


Summary:

In THE HOT CHICK, a magical pair of earrings accidentally causes a selfish high school cheerleader to switch bodies with a grubby criminal, causing all sorts of gender-bender complications. This uneven comedy for teenagers makes light of such immoral behavior as homosexuality, cross-dressing, witchcraft, and marijuana use.


Review:

THE HOT CHICK is an attempt to cash in on the ungodly transgender politics in contemporary society. It straddles the fence at some points, but in the end gives into the politically correct, abhorrent notions of today’s perverted sexual politics that, regrettably, have become mainstream.
In the story, Jessica Spencer, one of the most popular girls in high school, takes delight in teasing the nerdy girls and getting her black-haired rival, Bianca, into trouble. Jessica gets her just desserts when a magical pair of ancient earrings accidentally causes her to switch bodies with a dirty criminal named Clive (played by Rob Schneider), who’s almost twice her age.
Jessica and her best friend, April, try to figure out who might be responsible for her predicament. Complications ensue, however, when Jessica’s dad mistakes her for the new Spanish gardener. Meanwhile, Clive, looking like Jessica, goes on a crime spree, luring men to isolated places and beating them up so he can take their money. The gender-bender comedy goes on from there.
THE HOT CHICK is meant to be a light, silly teen comedy. It may provoke a few laughs from many moviegoers, but it lacks the big comic twists, clever wit and boffo ending that a really good comedy should have. Thus, it ultimately is a wasted effort, despite some standout performances.
THE HOT CHICK might have been more harmless than it is, except for its politically correct, Romantic notions about homosexuality. For example, Jessica’s experience motivates her eventually to welcome the fact that her young brother likes to dress up in her clothes. Trapped in Clive’s body, Jessica also gets mistaken frequently for a hip homosexual. Furthermore, her best friend, April, decides that she’s in love with Jessica. Although Jessica, as Clive, steers April back to heterosexuality, the movie makes light of this lesbian sub-plot.
Not only is homosexuality and cross-dressing sanctioned, but THE HOT CHICK also displays acceptance toward the witchcraft lifestyle of a high school girl who helps Jessica find out who, or what, cast the spell on her. Thus, the movie suggests that anyone who doesn’t like homosexual behavior, cross-dressing or the practice of witchcraft is intolerant. Of course, the essence of this kind of multicultural political correctness is to marginalize Christians and other people who believe strongly in the Bible’s condemnation of homosexuality, cross-dressing and witchcraft.
