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.
March 28, 2008
This parody is the divine joke: a heavenly reminder of how fabulously unfair real life is for the rest of us plain mortals.
March 28, 2008
After a panning in the States, The Hottie And The Nottie is being promoted as one of the worst-reviewed films ever.
March 28, 2008
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.

It is excruciatingly, painfully, horribly, terribly awful.
February 8, 2008
It looks like it was shot on middle school AV club equipment, and the jokes, aiming for gross-out value, are merely sad.
February 8, 2008
[The film] regularly grinds to a halt just so Putnam can capture Hilton running, sunning or simply posing -- usually in slow motion.
February 8, 2008
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.
February 8, 2008
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.
February 8, 2008
With all her wealth and meaningless celebritude, Hilton is incapable of doing the one thing most of us desperately wish she would do: Go away.
February 8, 2008
Johann Urb cruises up as a dream date doctor and his utter blandness nearly bests Hilton's. If the two of them conjoined, every interesting book or film or album ever created would implode.
February 8, 2008
Custom designed for its smirking star (who is also an executive producer), this tasteless train wreck asks only that she preen and prance on cue.
February 7, 2008
This pea-brained vanity production does not have the energy to remember from one scene to the next what it is about or why it is on screen. It is attention-deficit film-making.
February 7, 2008
Hottie and the Nottie is ultimately best suited for the confines of late-night cable.
February 7, 2008
That generous half star rating I tacked onto to this comedy abomination is all for Paris Hilton. Come on, it takes guts (or gross dim-wittedness) to appear on screen again after House of Wax.
February 7, 2008
Heidi Ferrer's screenplay...succeeds at just one thing: trumpeting one of the most anti-feminist messages in recent film history.
February 7, 2008
Hilton has the meticulously manicured appeal of a lawn where every blade of grass has been individually cut and polished. Head coyly tilted, hip out-thrust, she makes purring kitten, predatory lioness moves not often seen outside of beer ads.
February 7, 2008
Like Nate, we are mere Notties. And we are supposed to feel oh-so privileged for getting to watch Paris through the glass.
February 7, 2008
A certain disappointment sets in when the consummate awfulness subsides after an hour, becoming slightly less painful. But then, dropping a hammer on your foot improves that way, too.
February 7, 2008
'This movie hates women' is written over and over in my notebook, but that's not quite fair. This movie hates unattractive women.
