Rachel’s feature film debut “The Hot Chick” celebrated it’s 15 year anniversary earlier this month. The movie was released on December 13, 2002 in the United States. Rachel costarred alongside Rob Schneider, Anna Faris, Matthew Lawrence, Eric Christian Olsen and more. To promote the movie, the cast was featured in Seventeen Magazine’s January 2003 issue. Rachel told Seventeen: “We were a pretty tight-knit group. If we had to work through the night, we’d stay on the set and watch the sun come up together.”
The movie seem to have special place in Rachel’s heart to this date. She told Vogue in 2009: “My first film in the U.S. and a huge milestone in my life.” While promoting “Spotlight“, Rachel told People Magazine she credits the movie and Rob Schneider for her career: “I was testing for a pilot to play Nancy Drew, and I didn’t get it. I went to another audition, but I was so devastated that I wasn’t even concentrating. I got the other role instead. It was The Hot Chick, and I switched bodies with Rob Schneider. I really have to thank Rob Schneider!”. Switching bodies with Schneider was “one of the hardest jobs I’ve had to date”. She echoed in 2014 to Allure Magazine: “It was probably one of the scariest moments I’ve had in my career. It stretched me in ways I could never have imagined.” She recalls, “I remember standing backstage, dressed like a mechanic. I had a pink bikini on underneath, grease on my face, and I just remember breathing deep and thinking. Oh. my God, I have to go out there and do this striptease, as a man…as a woman. How did I get here?”
Looks like “Game Night” finished post-production. The movie got rated R earlier this week, according to Film Ratings. The movie will be released on February 23, 2018 in the USA and May 4, 2018 in the UK.

Lelio wrote the screenplay with Rebecca Lenkiewicz. Frida Torresblanco produced for Braven Films, Ed Guiney for Element Pictures, and Rachel Weisz for LC6 Productions. Film4 developed the film and co-financed with the film’s internationals sales agent FilmNation.
“Sebastian has captured, with real authenticity, the universality of love and faith, and the strength and sacrifice it takes to fight for what you believe in,” Bleecker Street CEO Andrew Karpen said. “We’re excited to bring Rachel Weisz’s, Rachel McAdams’ and Alessandro Nivola’s powerful and honest performances to audiences across the country next year.”
