Adam Sandler to the rescue
GENDER BENDER: Spence (Rob Schneider) in a tough spot.
The Hot Chick (ENGLISH)
Cast: Rob Schneider, Anna Faris, Adam Sandler
Dir: Tom Brady
WHEN YOU think of a film with Rob Schneider (his last film was the abysmal The Animal) about switching bodies, you have to be ready for a series of dumb jokes with a fondness for bodily functions and fluids.
And the funny thing is once you steal yourself for these absolutely inane, juvenile jokes; you find you can actually sit through the film. It is the kind of film that you could enjoy if you go in a big group with a mind set for a silly time.
Jessica Spence is a pretty teenager whose perfect life - from being cheerleader captain to dating hunky quarterback is turned upside down when she fools around with an ancient Assyrian earring and wakes up to find herself with the body of a thirty-year old man. Now she must get her body back, win the cheer competition and go to the prom before the next full moon other all sorts of awful things would happen - including how would they end the movie?
The funniest part of the film features Adam Sandler (the grand daddy of this kind of dumbed down gross out comedy.) Sandler plays a stoned out Rastafarian at a curio store who ends his long monologue about different artefacts with "and you know, what you could store your weed in here."
Rob Schneider plays the slob who switches bodies with the lovely Jessica and he does the usual gross out things that might make you laugh if you go for that kind of thing. The Hot Chick is a harmless enough inane film that provides that little giggle thanks to Sandler's tripped out Rasta character.
