The Hottie and the Nottie
An attractive bachelorette (Paris Hilton) finds that her chances of landing a man hinge far too much on her unattractive best friend (Christine Lakin), whom she goes out of her way to find a mate for by denying a childhood friend's romantic advances until he finds this hottie's pal a mate in this Regent Releasing comedy.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ David Jenkins, Time Out
"[The film] regularly grinds to a halt just so Putnam can capture Hilton running, sunning or simply posing -- usually in slow motion."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"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."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"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."
‑ Tim Grierson, Screendaily
"The sort of comedy that could only have been produced by aliens whose only knowledge of earth comes from, VH1 reality shows, and Dane Cook movies."
‑ David Cornelius,
"It is excruciatingly, painfully, horribly, terribly awful."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"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."
‑ Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
"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."
‑ Dave White,
"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?)."
‑ Kevin McCarthy, WJFK-FM (CBS Radio)
"isn't quite bad enough to enjoy for camp value"
‑ Chris Seibold,
"It looks like it was shot on middle school AV club equipment, and the jokes, aiming for gross-out value, are merely sad."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"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."
‑ Sam Adams, Los Angeles Times
"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."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"an insult to mankind"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson,
"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."
‑ Prairie Miller, NewsBlaze
