  • 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 inNate 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. Ultimately best suited for the confines of late-night cable.

    Great actors make the craft look easy. In the Paris Hilton comedy The Hottie and the Nottie, acting looks very, very difficult.
  4. 12
    A cinematic excursion so horrific that it's an insult to bad movies to call it a bad movie.
  5. 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.
  6. 0
    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."
  7. 0
    Crass, shrill, disingenuous, tawdry, mean-spirited, vulgar, idiotic, boring, slapdash, half-assed, and very, very unfunny.

    A cinematic masterpiece. This easily trumps mediocre works such as Schindlers List and The Godfather. This deserves every oscar, grammy and 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. Collapse

    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 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 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

    You can make fun of it, laugh at it, and it is just excellent that there were no awards for this garbage, it could have at least got a RazzieYou can make fun of it, laugh at it, and it is just excellent that there were no awards for this garbage, it could have at least got a Razzie for the Worst movie of the Century. This movie is absolutely terrible. Easily the worst movie of all time, and having Paris Hilton acting was a bad idea, for such a great actress. Expand

    Paris should learn from her grandfather how to achieve success without making herself looks cheap.
