Two kids with nothing in common are brought together in a very unexpected way in this comedy. Nell (Samaire Armstrong) is a pretty but hopelessly geeky teenage girl who loves Shakespeare and wants little more than to study literature at Yale when she graduates from high school in a few months Woody (Kevin Zegers), who lives next door, is the quarterback on the school's football team, and seems like a sure bet to land a lucrative football scholarship despite the fact he isn't especially bright. Nell and Woody are not at all friendly and normally have nothing to say to one another, but one day during a class field trip to a historical museum, the two fall under the spell of an Incan icon and when they awake the next morning, Woody's mind is in Nell's body, and vice versa. Neither is comfortable with their sudden gender switch or having to assume the other's personalities, but they quickly realize that until they can find a way to reverse the spell, they have to work together if Nell is to go to Yale and Woody is to get his scholarship and move away from this loutish parents (Sharon Osborne and Maury Chaykin. Elton John was an executive producer on It's A Boy Girl Thing, and songs from his back catalog appear on the soundtrack. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

More Body Hopping by talltale June 24, 2008 - 8:28 AM PDT

From "Switch" to "The Hot Chick" and beyond, moviemakers can't seem to get enough of body-hopping comedies. IT'S A BOY GIRL THING, another in this long line, is neither the best nor the worst. It's too dirty for its PG-13 rating yet pulls all its punches (not being an "R," it must). Still, there are surprisingly sweet and wonderful moments here, and the two leads and their supporting cast (Samaire Armstrong, Kevin Zegers, Maury Chaiken, Robert Joy and Sharon Osbourne) help matters considerably. What the movie gets right is proving how immensely helpful it would be if the two sexes could experience life in each other's shoes--or, in this case, bodies. Trust me: you've seen worse.
