Genre: Comedy

Audience: Teenagers and adults REVIEWER:
Dr. Tom Snyder 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. Please address

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.
