The Hottie and the Nottie (2008)



Critic Consensus: The Hottie and the Nottie is a crass, predictable, and ineptly staged gross-out comedy that serves little purpose beyond existing as another monument to Paris Hilton's vanity.

Critic Reviews for The Hottie and the Nottie

All Critics (67) | Top Critics (25)

A stark yet comforting reminder that cold, hard cash is no substitute for cold, hard talent. 'The Hottie and the Nottie' is an execrable Z-grade eugenics parable moonlighting as a sexy, disposable date movie.

Top Critic

It is excruciatingly, painfully, horribly, terribly awful.

Ebert & Roeper
Top Critic

It looks like it was shot on middle school AV club equipment, and the jokes, aiming for gross-out value, are merely sad.

[The film] regularly grinds to a halt just so Putnam can capture Hilton running, sunning or simply posing -- usually in slow motion.

Imagine the worst movie you've ever seen. Got it? Now try to think of something worse. That something is this movie -- wretched, embarrassing and a waste of the time and energy of everyone involved.

Top Critic

Hottie goes from insufferable to downright intolerable. While it pays lip service to inner beauty, the movie winds up as a feature-length advertisement for cosmetic surgery.

Audience Reviews for The Hottie and the Nottie

There is basically no fun to be had in this shallow, predictable and dumb excuse for a teen comedy with everything from the dialogue to the acting to direction proving to be a chaotic mess.

The Hottie And The Nottie Quite how Paris Hilton convinced someone to put her in a movie, we don?t know. A less painful experience than watching the spoilt heiress attempt to act might involve painting your face with fish paste then apple-bobbing in a piranha tank. Is it hot? It is not.

Nowhere near as bad as expected. Paris, like every other movie I've ever seen her in, acts like she's posing in front of the mirror, but for a mindless comedy, this was not that bad at all and even quite sweet in a way.
