    I haven't laughed harder at anything this year, but I would have a hard time recommending this gender-bending gut-buster to anyone who doesn't have a high threshold for crude sexual humor and stereotypes.

    At this point, we don't go to Rob Schneider movies looking for laughs: We go for comfort. They're the cinematic equivalent of meatloaf, dependable and filling in their quotidian idiocy.

    Faris is delightful, in fact, and she steals the movie right out from under Schneider.
  4. For the price of a ticket, and 100 minutes of your time, how many laughs are enough to qualify as just compensation? Will four or five do? Let's be generous and count five.

    The cast, save the charisma-free Schneider, is uniformly hilarious, and deserves classier high jinks than this Juwanna Tootsie roll.

    If you pitch your expectations at an all time low, you could do worse than this oddly cheerful -- but not particularly funny -- body-switching farce.

    Schneider and director/co-writer/Animal vet Tom Brady continue to subscribe to the notion that any joke worth making is worth beating to death, but there's still something strangely endearing about Schneider's willingness to do anything for a laugh.
  8. As for Schneider, he may be obnoxious and unhandsome, but he is, more important, talented and fearless, the driving force of this brash, not-so-predictable comedy.
  9. If you're in an especially generous mood, you'll give in to a few laughs. By the end, though, you just may find yourself pining for the good old days of Pauly Shore.
  10. This unabashedly stupid comedy is, well, unabashedly stupid.

    Marks no discernible improvement on its predecessors "Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo" and "The Animal," though the sight of the deeply unprepossessing Schneider all dolled up for girlie business is good for a few shallow chuckles.
  12. Rob Schneider runs an obstacle course of taste and emerges remarkably unsullied, considering the choices he faces.

    At best routinely assembled -- at worst barely competent. The slapstick is labored, and the bigger setpieces flat.
  14. The first half hour of Hot Chick, before the switch, plays like soft-core porno from the '60s. The rest plays like a bad "Saturday Night Live" sketch stretched to the breaking point.
  15. 25
    It's a wretched attempt at entertainment, ephemerally redeemed only by the appearance of several attractive girls.

    This movie is a 21st century take on the tired switched-persons genre, with predictable and obvious gag-inducing results.
  17. One might expect that with such low goals the film might have at least hit its target more often than it does. Schneider's mugging is relentless and his constant need to suddenly transpose himself into another character undermines the story's continuity and progression.
  18. 12
    Through superhuman effort of the will, I did not walk out of The Hot Chick, but reader, I confess I could not sit through the credits.
  19. A mind of overcooked pasta and a stomach of iron may get you through it, but it really is worth considering how desperately you need cheap chuckles while executive producer Adam Sandler and his favorite charity case laugh all the way to the bank.

    Flimsy transformation comedy.

    A comedy that surpasses stupidity, and not in entertaining ways.
