The Hot Chick and The Notebook

The Hot Chick is a 2002 comedy film starring Rob Schneider as the title character — a criminal who mysteriously switches bodies with a popular teenager. The bulk of the film revolves around "Jessica" and her friends figuring out how to get Jessica's body back, as well as dealing with the awkward social situations that arise as a result of two completely different strangers switching bodies.The movie was directed by Tom Brady, and produced by Adam Sandler, who also had a small role based on a SNL sketch playing the "Mambooza Bongo Player." Sisters Tia and Tamera Mowry, and singers Ashlee Simpson and Michelle Branch also had small roles. It was filmed, in part, at El Segundo High School.The Hot Chick starts with a scene set in ancient Abyssinia. A princess, disgusted by the groom of her arranged marriage, switches bodies with a slave girl by means of an enchanted set of earrings. This scene segues into a pep rally in which the eponymous "hot chick," Jessica Spencer, is shown leading the school's cheer squad.Although she is not shown to be a mean-spirited person, Jessica tends to take her life for granted and frequently neglects the feelings of those around her.Later, Jessica, her best friend April, and a few other girls visit the mall to hang out and do some shopping. They enter a new age store, where they check out a few items they like, including a pair of ancient earrings, which, unbeknownst to Jessica, are the same magical ones featured at the beginning of the movie. Since the earrings are not for sale, Jessica steals them.


The Notebook

The Notebook is a 1996 American romantic novel by Nicholas Sparks that was later adapted into a popular romantic film by the same name in 2004.

The novel was Sparks' first published novel, and the third written after The Passing and The Royal Murders, which were never published. It was written over a period of six months in 1994. Literary agent Theresa Park discovered Sparks after picking the book out of her agency's slush pile, liked it, and offered to represent him. In October 1995, Park secured a $1 million advance for it from Time Warner Book Group, and the novel was published in October 1996. It was on the New York Times best seller list in its first week of release.
