  • Summary: Nate Cooper has been smitten with Cristabel Abbot since he first laid eyes on her at the impressionable age of six. But before he could try and snuggle up to her at nap time, or maybe send her a valentine, his family moved away. In the intervening years there have been other women in Nate's life, but none who could measure up to Cristabel. Convinced she's the only girl for him, Nate decides to move back to L.A. and track her down. The good news: she's still single and stunning. The bad news: there's a reason she's still single. Cristabel's still best friends with the same ugly little girl Nate remembers from first grade, June Phigg. The two are inseparable. They live together. They go to yoga together. They would even go on double dates together...if only June could get a date. And Cristabel simply refuses to leave dear June home alone. Determined to spend as much time as possible with Cristabel, Nate sets out to find a boyfriend for June. But even when he pays them, guys all flee at the sight of her. And then it hits him: June needs a makeover. But as Nate and June become friends and she emerges from her cocoon, Nate slowly realizes that the girl of his dreams isn't the hottie at all. It's the nottie -- who turns out to be something of a hottie herself. (Regent Releasing) Expand

  1. The Farrelly brothers could burp out a movie funnier than The Hottie & the Nottie, a farce of corrupt stereotypes that's never more grotesque than when it pretends to be more than skin-deep.
  2. Like Nate, we are mere Notties. And we are supposed to feel oh-so privileged for getting to watch Paris through the glass.

    Great actors make the craft look easy. In the Paris Hilton comedy The Hottie and the Nottie, acting looks very, very difficult.

    How is Paris Hilton in her first starring role to receive a national release? Pretty bad, actually. She's limited to a single, all-too-familiar expression of smug self-satisfaction, and she delivers her lines in a tone somewhere between "seductive" and "dish-soap commercial."
  6. Reviewed by: Nathan Lee
    Crass, shrill, disingenuous, tawdry, mean-spirited, vulgar, idiotic, boring, slapdash, half-assed, and very, very unfunny.
  7. 0
    The most astounding thing about this abysmal comedy -- aside from the fact the studio actually allowed critics within a mile of it -- is that it's so ghastly it is beneath even the meager dignity of Paris Hilton.

    A cinematic masterpiece. This easily trumps mediocre works such as Schindlers List and The Godfather. This deserves every oscar, grammy and Tony award on how stellar it is. Paris Hilton emerges as the greatest actress since Madonna. I dont get all the bad reviews. Expand

    Argh, Paris Hilton just irritates me. The only reason she done the film was probably to make her the centre of attention. The story line is actually quite dencent however Hilton does not give a great performance and therefore i rated the film 2 because its good but i just really don't like Paris Hilton. Expand

    It's one thing for Paris Hilton to try to pretend she's not shallow, and confirm she is very very shallow in the process. It's totally another for the entire movie industry to indulge every single one of her ego trips. Does anybody think Paris Hilton is even attractive? She's ugly as hell! In a just world her parents would cut her out of the will, and she would have to live out the song 'Like a Rolling Stone' firsthand. Expand

    I'd rather perform an abortion then be subjected to anything Paris is involved in again. My wife has agreed to movie picking probation after making me sit through this movie/thing. The only amusing aspect of seeing this on the big screen was how many people walked out before the end of the film. If you are considering watching this film spray mace in your face for 1 hour and 45 minutes instead. You will enjoy your mace treatment far more. Expand

    It's time for Paris Hilton to go back to Carls Jr., start making those porno movies, and go away forever. I hate her music, her shows, and her lousy crappy movies including this one. If Paris thinks she's has the definitive word "That's Hot," she should've used sunscreen and a boil of hot water. She's like Heidi Montag on steroids. But "The Hottie and the Nottie" is one of the most disgusting movies I've ever seen. Expand

    Quick question to Nikko C.: for all of your ranting against how dumbed down American culture has become (something many of us would unequivically agree with), your criticism of even the movie critics and even your chastising of the rest of us for putting such a dimb-witted twit as Paris Hilton on a pedastal, what on God's green Earth propelled you to watch something that you yourself would apparently deem so unworthy to your superior sensibilities? Just wondering. Expand
