I mean c'mon: Girls today act more like boys than boys girls.
With all her shrugs, posturing, manly strut, spitting, and cursing bravado, it all but sounds like a typical girl I see in the malls.
Kevin Zegers, on the other hand, lives up to the part by pulling out all the stops on the suddenly sensitive, suddenly well-dressed, suddenly effeminate (or stereotypically gay) football jock.
One of the bonuses the story of this movie contains is the concept of "access." In many gender swapping movies, the humor and plot is based on what one sex discovers about the other half once he or she inhabits the other's body. In It's A Boy Girl Thing, that access takes a sharp turn midway into the movie, and suddenly each character discovers what is being said about him/her from the house next door. Woody (a high school football star with loud parents), inhabiting Nell's body finds out what Nell herself, taking after her mother's bourgeois snobbishness, had said about him.Read more ›
At first they try and ruin each other's lives which makes no sense since they have no idea how long they are going to be each other - it could be fore ever. The movie gets better when they try and help each other - she to learn football and he to learn poetry and literature.
Near the end they actually like being each other and in a touching scene say they would be honored to live as each other. It might have been a better or more original film if they didn't change back.
Good ending at the prom as well as good use of Shakespears poetry
This film is very predictable, but quite funny, despite the fact that the humor is rather crude sometimes... The two main characters are Nell (Samaire Armstrong), a bright and somewhat nerdy young woman, and Woody (Kevin Zegers), a football player that has the popularity that Nell lacks, but isn't very accustomed to using his brain. Even though these typical albeit very different teenagers can't stand each other, they will have to reach a compromise, due to an spell that ends up switching their bodies. Confusion ensues, as you can imagine...
All in all, I think that those that are expecting the classic high school comedy will like it, if their expectations are just to have some fun... If that is your case, recommended.
The result is pretty predictable: bathroom and locker room jokes, some body-part humor but less than you might think, and a happy ending all around. Oh, and the Mean Girls character ends up publicly embareassed (spelling is intentional), which just goes towards making the ending happy. Best watched if you're doing something else at the same time.

Entertaining. The movie forgets to be funny about two-thirds through, but by then I'm invested in the characters.Published 2 months ago by Vid the Kid
