Product Description

America's hottest celebutantes, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, are back, and this time, they're taking over the country one family at a time! With their heated rivalry in high gear, the girls compete fiercely to see who would make a better housewife. Each hilarious episode brings a new family, a new challenge, and a new excuse to party! Never mind the fact that there are diapers to change and houses to clean when there are tequila shots to down and strip clubs to hit! Reality television has never been this wild...Simply put, it's simply outrageous!

For being one of the shows that's often thought of as an example of reality TV's origins, there's never been much reality in the overly long-lived series The Simple Life. This two-sided, single disc of the fourth (and last) season has even less to do with reality than any of its preceding installments. Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie are still acting their parts of simpleton celebrities thrust into the "real" lives of regular folk, but during the contractually obligated production of what had become an astonishingly popular show, the poor little rich girls were in the midst of a bitter feud. They hated each others' guts, weren't speaking, and thanks to the machinations of their individual publicity experts, the whole world knew it. Consequently, the two rarely share screen time together except for ample sequences of split-screening, which makes for an even more bizarre pairing for two dim-witted million-heiresses who remain famous for nothing more that, well, being famous. Season four consists of a variety of slices of suburban Los Angeles family life with the wife/mother role being taken over on alternate days by either Paris or Nicole. As usual, they sneer and make fun of the lower class that they visit--all the while showing absolutely no class of their own. Their feud is vaguely addressed in the first episode, with the other nine being fairly rote imitations of their earlier-season forays into the humdrum of screaming kids, grocery shopping, preparing food, bill-paying, and every other mundane things the girls have been coached into criticizing and laughing at by the show's producers. We're invited into some parts of the girls' "real" lives with glimpses into their homes amidst their psychological destruction of others'. But as with the prior seasons, the can't-look-away-from-the-train-wreck aspect is the thing that keeps our attention. They hate us and we hate them, so it's the very definition of symbiotic entertainment. Since they also hate each other there's an extra element of amusement; only don't think too hard lest the fine line between amusement and contempt disappears. Who knows if their feud was real or made up by the genius publicity machines behind their fame. One thing that's not made up and definitely not comical is the gruesome change in Nicole Richie's body as her issues with low body weight reveal itself over the course of the episodes. No matter how much Paris despised her, she should have taken her ex-friend to In-N-Out for a few late-night burger binges (without the purging). --Ted Fry

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple Life Huge Supporter October 26, 2006
I am huge fan of SIMPLE LIFE. I will have to say they make idiots of themselves and make you laugh! This season is not as funny since they are not working together. When they work together they feed off of each other humor and stupidity.......Some of the smallest tasks they are given they turn into the biggest things. Then there are others that I would never have thought of adapting to. I will still add SIMPLE LIFE Season 4 to the collection of 1-3. These are things you can watch over and over and laugh as if you have never seen them before!!! Nicole needs her own TV show!!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars It Must Be Time To Part, Because I Feel Dead Inside November 7, 2010
With the exception of 'The Simple Life Goes To Camp', I've seen every season of the show, so I feel pretty confident when I say that this was, by far, the worst season out of all of 'em. Not only was it unbearable to watch, but quite insulting as well. Insulting to the families - many of whom were minorities - and insulting to the viewers that E! obviously counted on to watch and buy what they were seeing. It's easily the worst season of anything they've ever broadcast and how it managed to survive for all 10 episodes without getting cancelled is beyond me.

For this season of the show the girls took turns playing housewife to a different family each week. Typical chores included cooking, cleaning, looking after the little ones and keeping an eye on the husbands. But what overshadowed everything was the fact that Paris and Nicole were locked in a nasty feud with each other. Since the two weren't talking, they refused to appear onscreen together. (They do briefly share the screen in the first and last episode, but even then all they do is sling insults at one another and glare at each other with blank, hateful eyes.) To get around this technical difficulty the producers used split-screens to show each girl arriving at the house and greeting the family, before switching back and forth between Paris' week and Nicole's week with the family. There were so many split-screens I felt like I was watching a DePalma movie. Out of the 10 families only 2 really stood out. The first one was about a lush of a husband (who bore a passing resemblance to Ray Winstone) who actually called himself "Captain Tequila". While Nicole was quite eager to pour him shot after shot, Paris wanted to focus on his other hobbies, which included golf.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME ! THESE GIRLS RULE! January 13, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Paris and Nicole are separate in this season, however the show is great and much FUN. The way it is produced and edited is the success formula of this hillarious and non-stop fun Reality Show! If you liked the previous seasons, you will love this one!

3.0 out of 5 stars Stupid is... August 29, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase stupid does. Of course I have no idea if these girls are truly dumb, but if I had to base my opinion on these movies I'd have to say 'yes'. That being said, the series is pretty entertaining. I find amazing the way these girls treat people, the people who open up their homes to them and just folk in general. They act like teen age kids who have had no direction or parental influence in their lives. Just because you are extremely well to do does not mean that you should not have basic manners or social skills. I understand that this series is meant as entertainment and not really a look at the girls 'real' lives, but it sure serves as a clue what those lives must be like. And hey, if I inherited a ton of money, who's to say I wouldn't become just as irresponsible? I will note that in the later series, the girls often gifted the families they stayed with with some pretty nice stuff, so I suppose all is not lost. So, 3 stars for entertainment, -2 for embarrassment suffered while watching.

4.0 out of 5 stars Time-Killing Fluff that is rather enjoyable May 7, 2007
I'll admit it. I have watched every season of "The Simple Life" since the show's premier on FOX several summers ago. I wasn't going to watch the show, but thanks to the no-mans-land of repeats I found myself watching the premier with my mother one evening, and the strangest thing happened: neither of could stop laughing! We watched the entire season cracking up and actually looking forward to the next mis-adventure. The following summer with the double-long "Road Trip" season the same thing happened. I don't know how or why but we found this wildly entertaining. Although by season three it was more of the same and things started to get stale.

While people critisize this season because the girls are rarely together, that is the part I liked the best. You were able to compare and contrast the girls two vastly different styles and wild-scheme. The Simple Life 4 is by no means appointment, or even "good" TV, but it is a very worthy waste of several hours one afternoon.

3.0 out of 5 stars Did the Fued Kill Sn. 4? April 8, 2008
By M. Hoch
I must say first off that I gave this season 3 stars because it is definately worth watching and owning if you are a fan of the show, BUT if I was rating it against the other seasons I would have to give it 2 stars. Was it the fued between the girls that brought this season down? Was it that the show was picked up by E! and left Fox? Was it that this season seems to start to make the girls shananagans a little scripted? I'm not sure, but it's still Paris and Nichole and they are still making me laugh, a little. Can't help but love 'em.
