The film begins in an Abyssinian castle in 50 BC, where a princess uses a pair of enchanted earrings to escape an arranged marriage by swapping bodies with a slave girl. When each woman wears one of the earrings, their bodies are magically swapped while their minds remain in place.

The rest of the film is set in the modern-day suburban home of Jessica Spencer (McAdams), the beautiful but selfish “hot chick” of the film’s title. Jessica’s closest friends are April (Faris), Keecia (Murray), and Lulu (Holden). April is Jessica’s best friend, and all four girls are cheerleaders. At school one day, Jessica makes fun of an overweight girl named Hildenburg (Kuhlmann) and a Wiccan girl named Eden (Doumit). After that, Jessica and her friends visit the local mall, where Jessica gets her rival Bianca (Laas) into trouble and finds the earrings in an African-themed store. The earrings are not for sale, so Jessica steals them.

Shortly afterward, a small-time criminal named Clive (Schneider) robs a nearby gas station. When Jessica and her friends stop there and mistake him for an employee, he services their car to avoid raising suspicion. Jessica accidentally drops one of the earrings on the ground, the girls drive away, and Clive picks up the earring. That evening, in their respective homes, Jessica and Clive put on their earrings. When they wake up the next morning, each of them is trapped in the other’s body. This is especially difficult for Jessica, who has a cheering competition and the school prom coming up soon.

During this time, Clive has been using Jessica’s body to make money from men, including Billy, who gives him his money and car, believing he is Jessica. On the evening of the prom, Hildenburg sees a video of Clive robbing a man on the TV news, goes to the scene of the crime, and finds a business card for the club where Clive works as a pole dancer. She informs Jessica at the prom, and the girls go to the club. When they find Clive, Jessica steals his earring and puts it on herself along with the other one. With the two earrings now on the same person, Jessica’s and Clive’s bodies return to their original owners. After Jessica makes up with Billy, the film ends with the school’s graduation ceremony, followed by a scene in which Clive, running from the law and still dressed in lingerie, is abducted by a bartender who believes he is a homosexual.

A young teenaged girl called Drew Decker (Carmen Electra) is home alone when she receives a phone call. The caller constantly tries to find out her name, and she doesn’t give in.

The caller then appears in her house, dressed as Ghostface from the movie Scream. He chases her outside, where he rips her clothes off, which leaves her in her white bra and thong. She runs into the sprinklers in her underwear, the killer catches up with her and stabs her in the breast. Cindy Campbell (Anna Faris) is on her computer when her boyfriend Bobby Prinze (Jon Abrahams) appears in the window. The character of Bobby is upset because his relationship with Cindy “isn’t going anywhere” (i.e., they have not slept together). Even though he expresses this to her, she refuses and he leaves her house.

The next day in school, Cindy meets with Bobby and the rest of her friends, Brenda Meeks (Regina Hall), Greg Phillipe (Lochlyn Munro), Ray Wilkins (Shawn Wayans), and Buffy Gilmore (Shannon Elizabeth). At the school, news teams are trying to interview the police and students who knew the girl who was killed the night before (her name is known as Drew Decker). The most prominent among the reporters is Gail Hailstorm (Cheri Oteri), author of You’re Dead, I’m Rich. Cindy points out to the others that Drew’s murder happened exactly one year after they accidentally killed a man during a night of drunk driving, and dumped his body off a pier.

An anonymous flasher (Randy Gambill) exposes himself to shoppers in the Forest Ridge Mall parking lot.

He is assisted by the Yuen twins (Matt and John Yuan), Charles (Jesse Plemons) and Dennis (Michael Peña) in his efforts. At home, Ronnie has a loving but dysfunctional relationship with his alcoholic mother (Celia Weston).

Ronnie’s dream girl, Brandi (Anna Faris) who works a mall make-up counter, is flashed the next day, becoming distraught over the situation. Ronnie tries to comfort her until a police officer, Detective Harrison (Ray Liotta), arrives and takes over Ronnie’s palliative role. Ronnie feels threatened by this and is upset that his boss allowed an outside person to infringe on his search for the offender.

The criminal activity at the mall continues, as a masked person is seen robbing a shoe store, causing property damage. Detective Harrison is once again called in to investigate, his efforts hindered by Ronnie’s unusual attempts to resolve the matter. In response, Harrison curses out Ronnie during a meeting with Ronnie’s superior. In defiance of the detective’s angry rant, Ronnie decides to take the steps necessary to become a real police officer.

Refusing the flasher an ambulance, Ronnie takes him to the police station, impressing and insulting the officers who had previously ridiculed him. A victorious Ronnie is then interviewed with the other security guards and Nell, back on both legs, is now his new girlfriend, and he returns back to his job as the head of mall security.
