Product Description

THE SIMPLE LIFE 3: Interns follows celebutantes Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie as they pack-up their Louis Vuitton bags and board a Greyhound Bus to tour the country and take on an assortment of odd jobs.

The biggest joke of The Simple Life concept is that the audience is in on the joke. Granted, the joke isn't always that funny, but it's funnier when the girls -- Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, a pair of pampered royal New York brats -- aren't in on it. Like its predecessors, this compilation edition of the reality TV show continues the same basic conceit of plopping the girls in outrageous blonde-out-of-water situations and watching the sparks fly. This time they're tasked to be interns and actually work ("Work?!? Us?!?") at places like a plastic surgery clinic, an airline, a mortuary, a nursing home, an automotive shop, etc., etc. Of course it's all set up as an intentional joke on the sometimes angry, sometimes befuddled, sometimes good-humored "employers" and host families they're stuck with. More than that, it's just a series of staged scenes with some goofy video verite added when necessary. Any sense of comic timing comes from the ironic editing, silly sound effects, and equivalent of spit-takes reaction shots from the real people around them who can't believe their eyes. We shouldn't believe our eyes either, because it really is all a put-on. The train-wreck appeal of The Simple Life is that the girls go around making fun of lower class and white trash living, but they're pretty much complete idiots themselves. The result is obviously manipulative, but sometimes clever. There's great comfort in laughing at them, not with them.--Ted Fry

5.0 out of 5 stars Oddly Endearing. March 15, 2006
Back to their typical mischievous ways, the designer duo reak havoc as interns in this third installment of the popular FOX television series (which took over a year to be released on DVD).

The third season showcases a thinner Nicole Richie and a journey a la Greyhound Bus down the East Coast with everyday passengers and interesting characters along the way.

Owning the two previous seasons, I can definitely agree that the hijinks are never short of hilarious and the language is never short of "do you love it?"

Whether they were attempting to change oil or diapers, photocopying/bubblewrapping their body parts, or giving the elderly a fashion show at a retirement home, the girls managed to get some above satisfactory reports from employers.

They also rekindled romance among members of the host families and used their hard earned money to give back.

The girls seldom take the jobs seriously, but that's what we love about them. They also possess an alluring charm that makes them human and an overpowering appeal that makes them simply irresistible.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Best Simple Life so far... April 20, 2006
Of all the other seasons Id have to say this is the best!!! Especially because they are a lot more episodes where Paris actually tries to work and to help others not like any of the past seasons where she doesnt want to get dirty or she doesnt even try. This season has more comedy to it and Paris shows america that she is a nice intelligent person and that she is not just a 'dumb blonde.'

3.0 out of 5 stars Before The Friendship Ended October 11, 2010
'The Simple Life 3 - Interns' was made back when life was simple for Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie. This was before all the coke and DUI busts the girls racked up individually and the eventual jail time they both served as a result of their numerous offenses. It was also the last season they appeared in together as best friends. Soon after 'Interns' aired, Paris announced that she and Nicole were no longer friends nor were they even speaking to each other. So began a very public feud over very private reasons. Despite being contractually obligated to return for a fourth season, the two refused to appear onscreen together. They eventually worked things out and returned for a fifth season but by then they had already been dropped by Fox and viewership was down. Besides the increasingly annoying levels of diva like behavior and the girls' ridiculous sense of entitlement, I think another reason people stopped watching the show was because of how obviously fake it was. The first season you sort of went along with it and believed what you were watching, but after the show became a hit the producers obviously felt the need to go bigger for seasons 2 and 3. The episodes got to be so obviously scripted and acted that you began to wonder why the hell you were even watching it anymore. For me there's a simple explanation: these girls are super hot. Now a lot of people probably don't agree, but I think both of them are quite sexy and therefore found many of the situations they got themselves in in these 16 episodes highly entertaining.

Since this was the longest season you know there are going to be more than a few "filler" episodes that aren't all that great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paris and Nicole March 17, 2006
I had seen the first and second seson of the simple life and loved it. I have all three seasons. They are brillant and hillarious. But of course we have ms Paris always looking in the mirror,And nicole cursing.But, that is what makes the simple life dvds sucessful. But, the hole feud going on between them is really dumb. I miss them being togeather. You can't do much about it,Nicole on the other hand I feel is The real star considering the areas of course, but she is just so funny and she makes me laugh every second. Now Paris on the other hand is funny as well but, Not as funny as Nicole. But I really love the girls a lot. Sa Sa sa sa sa sa!!!!!. lol. I love these girls.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loves it! May 23, 2006
And I mean that. These girls can make anything funny, and this season they take things up a notch and really let loose. My favorite episode has to be when they are sent to sort mail and then by luch for everyone at the firm they are interning at and they screw everything up ROYALLY, eating everyones food, throwing mail in any bin and making faxes of their breast's and handing them out to the workers. This show is the funniest thing on TV and now it's the funniest thing in my DVD case. All the 4 & 5 star reviews are just added proof that Nicole & Paris serve up some of the biggest laughs in reality (or unreality) TV. Worth every penny (it's cheap so pick it up!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple Life Interns are SIMPLY pleasing! March 7, 2006
I have both season one and season two on DVD! I have enjoyed watching both seasons many a time or two. Paris & Nicole's slapstick sense of humor make them a modern day Laurel and Hardy! Both season ONE and season TWO are HILARIOUS! I highly reccomend buying all THREE seasons. They are WELL WELL worth the money. I really enjoyed the interns season. I do think that the third season seemed alot more scripted than the past two; but it still had the magic, and spunk that drew me into both previous seasons. Don't miss out on this GREAT DVD! I have even turned friends of mine that did not like paris OR nicole into fans of the simple life!!!!
