Overview

When a beautiful yet snotty teen finds herself in the body of a hairy, unattractive man, she must find a way back to her old self. Such is the premise for Touchstone Pictures' The Hot Chick, starring Rob Schneider. Although the movie received mixed reviews, the DVD is worth a look. To start, the film is presented beautifully in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen, complete with bright colors and rich black tones. The 5.1 Dolby Digital track is adequate, yet not superb. Sounds fall a bit flat and dialog competes with a loud soundtrack. The scene-specific audio commentary by director Tom Brady, of The Animal fame, proves to be entertaining, yet rather pedestrian and not very educational. "The Hot Chick Yearbook" contains many behind-the-scene featurettes. First off is "Becoming Jessica," a look at how Schneider became a beautiful teen girl, on the inside. Then there's the antithesis: "Becoming Clive," how a hot girl became a balding guy. "The Hot Chicks" looks at the mentality behind the creation of the film's bratty-girl clique. Stuntwork is examined in "Physical Education." Fifteen deleted scenes, including an alternate ending, are mildly worthy of view time. A gag reel would have been more enjoyable.
