The Hottie and the Nottie Reviews

At the risk of going against the obvious 'it's-cool-to-hate-Hilton' popular majority, it should be stated up front that The Hottie & the Nottie isn't half-bad.

I wouldn't say it's particularly good, but certain measured elements of the genre create something surprisingly passable.

It's hard to fault the filmmakers, because given the premise, it could have been much MUCH worse.

Just about everything about it feels made for viewing at home, a fact underscored by the porn star monotone that is Hilton's 'acting' voice.

Hard time in the joint can change a person. Make them worse sometimes. And it would appear that this is Hilton's idea of revenge on a world she feels has done her wrong.

Antagony & Ecstasy

A person famous only because of the intense lack of basic decency with which she has pursued fame would obviously want to play the most beautiful conceivable human being.

Tabloid curiosity Paris Hilton may be the main draw, but it's doubtful that even her celebrity will do much to raise the prospects of this aggressively moronic comedy.

I just kept thinking about Daniel Day-Lewis and Marlon Brando when I watched Paris Hilton's acting performance in this film (can you sense the sarcasm?).

The sort of comedy that could only have been produced by aliens whose only knowledge of earth comes from TMZ.com, VH1 reality shows, and Dane Cook movies.

Paris definitely wear the pants in this ho hum extra-lite romantic comedy, and I think I can pretty accurately report that she keeps them on down under, from beginning to end.

A movie where Paris Hilton is a bombshell is less comedy and more Science Fiction...

Astonishingly sexist.

In truth, parts of The Hottie and the Nottie are no worse than much of the romcom they sucker us with on any given week.

A film of monumental dreadfulness, the hunt for the worst movie of 2008 ends right here.

This parody is the divine joke: a heavenly reminder of how fabulously unfair real life is for the rest of us plain mortals.

If you thought She's All That was all that, this will pass the time for you - but if you thought She's All That was all that, well, so would practically any film.
