Flashback Review: The Hot Chick

It’s time for a trip to the past with another Flashback Review. We are going back in the year 2002. During that time, 4 films were released on the same year from a film company called “Happy Madison,” whose founder is Adam Sandler, responsible for creating movies he produced starring himself, his close friends including Kevin James, David Spade, Allen Covert, Rob Schneider among others. Another interesting fact, Happy Madison is named after Sandler’s two hits, Billy Madison & Happy Gilmore which made a lot of money, and don’t forget The Wedding Singer.

The four films that came out in 2002 (in chronological order) are: Mr. Deeds, The Master Of Disguise, Eight Crazy Nights, and to put the final nail in the coffin, The Hot Chick. The last one mentioned is gonna be our Flashback Review. This might contain some spoilers so let’s begin shall we?

Positives: Adam Sandler has a cameo as a Jamaican employee. (taking over Rob Schneider’s SNL sketch as an homage)

I laughed at a few gags such as a fart scene at a nightclub.

Rob Schneider wears a Powerpuff Girls T-Shirt, the same year Powerpuff Girls Movie came out, even the song “That’s What Girls Do” plays in the background. Maybe Schneider’s daughter Elle King was a fan of Powerpuff Girls & he decided to give her the t-shirt he wore.

Hexes/Negatives: Poor backstory about the magical earrings without a proper way to introduce them. When were the earrings recovered, I never got to see who found them many centuries later.

Disney like music playing in the background during dramatic moments such as Jessica (protagonist) talking to her best friend April, about their relationship.

Rapid groin jokes one scene to another. Did the screenwriters forget to come up with a variety of proper jokes besides that one joke used way to many time?

I’m doubling down the grade scale because Rachel McAdams didn’t have any equal screen time like Rob Schneider, wasted an opportunity to showcase her acting ability in her first feature film.

Idiot parents who aren’t concerned about their daughter’s (Jessica) whereabouts. Nobody does that in real life!

Seriously, who names their kid Booger? Outtakes at the end is a waste of time to watch, Pixar & Jackie Chan films can make bloopers better than this Trunchbull of nonsense.

Final Verdict: An F, because it’s a FAKER! For those aren’t idiotic to understand plot driven/character driven development. If you turn your brain off, you might loose your intelligence & end up like Sean Connery or any SNL Celebrity Jeopardy contestant.

Moral Of The Story: Never steal an ancient artifact. In the words of Indiana Jones: “It belongs in a museum.”

P.S. Ms. Rachel McAdams, if you’re reading this review. It’s not you’re fault that you had to star in this film. We all gotta start somewhere. At least you’ve decided to pick good films in you’re career.  Look on the bright side, you & Elle King have one thing common. Multiple awards & acclaim unlike your co-star & Elle’s daddy.

Sincerly, Nick The Critic.
