Editorial Reviews

Celebutante Paris Hilton takes on leading lady status in this fluffy comedy about the mysteries of love, and the importance of orthodontia. Nate Cooper (Joel David Moore) is an unfeeling commitment "challenged" lemon. His fed-up girlfriend runs out on him and he’s just about hit rock bottom. Haunted by his childhood, he can’t seem to get over his kindergarten crush with the cutest girl at school, Christabel Abbot (Paris Hilton). Unable to move forward in love and life, Nate decides to track down Christabel, hoping to unlock the key to his future. As luck and movie magic would have it, Christabel has blossomed into LA’s hottest blonde who's miraculously single. Unavoidably however, there’s a catch: she’s still playing guardian to childhood best friend and physically cursed June Phigg (Christine Lakin) and has made a solemn vow of chastity until June has a boyfriend of her own. Considering June’s sad and highly exaggerated state of affairs (e.g. rotting teeth, whiskers, etc.), Nate is faced with a daunting task. As his hare-brained schemes to find June an appropriate suitor evolve, she begins to undergo an extreme inner and outer transformation. When her teeth are whitened and the moles and whiskers are removed to reveal a Hollywood actress-like allure, Nate "suddenly" has an unobstructed view of her "inner beauty" and in an epiphanic moment realizes that love and destiny are pretty confusing things. Lacking verisimilitude and plagued with gross-out jokes, spotty direction, and an underwritten script, much of the film plays out like Farrelly brothers' sloppy seconds. Nonetheless, there’s plenty of silliness, some good laughs, and a very willing cast who is more than up to playing along, most notably the talented Lakin and Moore. Hilton fans can rejoice in knowing that within the limited confines of the script, she aptly holds her own and when given the chance, has comedy potential. All in all The Hottie and the Nottie is a modest ultralight romantic comedy that though forgettable, is not without its charms. Neither a Hottie nor a Nottie, let’s just call this a Middle-of-the-Roadie. - Matt Wold

Product Description

A young man moves to L.A. to track down the woman he's been in love with since childhood, only to discover that his plan to woo her only has one hurdle to overcome: what to do with her ever-present, not-so-hot best friend

What a great way to get rid of an un-wanted house guest. Keep a copy of this film close at hand, and when you have had just about all you can take, put this film into your dvd player and hit the play button.
If they haven't high-tailed it out your door within 15 minutes, pray for a visit from Freddy.

1.0 out of 5 stars So pathetically bad it is funny February 13, 2008
Long story how I ended up seeing the movie, but this is sooo bad, words can't say.

The movie is an excuse to parade Paris Hilton around. With that, it succeeds.

But lacking a decent script, plot and acting, this is one bad movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Typical Story November 7, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In my opinion, it's a typical story about beauty and "not judging others based on their physical appearance..." But it's not a bad movie... There's some funny moments, too.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Hottie and the Nottie May 26, 2011
This had sort of an odd title, but I saw Joel from Avatar was in it so would give it a try. I liked it very much..This is what happens too much in life..people are judged by their exterior. A person has to be perfect in school to get noticed..perfect teeth..perfect body..etc and later in is the same..the beautiful women have boyfriends..husbands...get a happy life...the plain women either get the dregs of men, or they get ignored doesnt matter what sort of person one is..or what sort of heart one is a face and a body...So, I found this movie very enlightening. He did start out after the beautiful girl from his school days, but then realized the girl who was not pretty had the most to offer....I wish all people would see the inside of a person, instead of just the outside..

1.0 out of 5 stars Atrocious February 12, 2008
Out of all the movies that I've ever seen this past year, this is definitely one of the worst and most pathetic movies I've ever felt like I wanted to go away. Paris Hilton gives a very unconvincing performance as she tries to do whatever it takes to make her friend a better attractive woman to men. Sadly, for someone who really never learned her lessons and lied about giving back to others on Larry King Live, Paris Hilton showed no effort of changing her ways, and also showed she really doesn't have the drive to act. Not even die hard Paris Hilton fans would even come close to being interested in this movie.

Story: F

Overall: F-

I watched this when I was really bored, had a bad cold and it was rainy out...Not that this is any excuse to volunteer oneself to this type of torture! I guess too, I can always blame it on my fever and use the excuse "I was very ill and not right in the head." which must be the case because in a normal state, I don't think I ever would have watched this wreck! I am not a huge Paris fan but I am not a Paris hater either. So curiosity got the better of me and I decided to see what all the fuss was about.

So is the movie really as bad as people say? Yes and no...It wasn't the worst movie I have seen but it fell short of being "So bad, it's good" material. It wasn't an Epic Fail of the Laughable kind either...It was bad in a mediocre way. Epic Badness occurs when a movie sucks so much it literally has you rolling on the ground laughing...With this movie though, you'll probably just be rolling your eyes. Or writhing in pain at all the corny dialogue!

The acting is bad and alternates freely between wooden and overdone throughout the movie. The actors did the best they could but it wasn't a good script and the director didn't seem to be picky either. Usually a director will shoot multiple takes of a scene then use the best one. I figure either: 1) He took one take of each scene. 2) The other takes were WORSE and he did use the best ones...a frightening concept but certainly believable. 3) He didn't care and could not tell the difference and used whatever footage.

Now the storyline, if you can call it that is not a new concept: Hot girl Christabel has ugly friend June and she won't date until June finds a guy. Nate Cooper has had a crush on Christabel since 1st grade and tracks her down (in a creepy, stalkerish way) as an adult.

This movie was great.

If you're looking for something with depth that will make you think, then don't see this. The Hottie and the Nottie is a bubbly, upbeat movie, and it doesn't try to be anything else. It's fun. It's funny. It's something you can watch with a bunch of friends.
