The Hottie & the Nottie (12A)
Friday 28 March 2008
Toxic stuff. If the name Paris Hilton doesn't set your inner alarm bell ringing, then you might innocently settle down to this morality tale about "inner beauty" – and then you'll be sorry.
Hilton plays the "hottie" who refuses to date her former schoolmate until he fixes up her unsightly pal, the "nottie" (Christine Lakin, left, with Hilton). Inept movies can be unwittingly funny, even endearing, but this one is neither; it's just very, very boring, and foreglimpses a dire future. As long as "celebrity" maintains its hold, I'm afraid we'll always have Paris.
