Product Description

Paris Hilton, Nicole Ritchie. Another go round for the wealthy bobsy" twins trying to manage a 5-week Green Acres lifestyle. Includes 10 episodes on 1 DVD. 2004/color/4 hrs., 30 min/NR.

For Depression-era audiences, much of the fun of screwball comedies such as It Happened One Night and My Man Godfrey, was the pleasure of watching rich people act like loons or get their redemptive comeuppance from some Average Joe. The same vicarious kicks are at play in the sophomore season of The Simple Life, in which Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie drive from Florida to California. With no cash or credit cards, they must depend on the kindness of strangers (invariably nonplussed men whom the ladies approach for handouts at toll booths, gas stations, or fast food joints). The series takes great delight in putting the pampered and privileged duo in embarrassing situations, such as getting them jobs as maids at a nudist resort. But through it all, our uneasy riders are game for almost anything and never lose their 'tude. And just when their antics try the viewers' patience or sympathy (at the nudist resort, they shamelessly goldbrick on the job, posing as guests and calling for a maid to clean up the room for which they are responsible), they somehow redeem themselves. On a cattle drive, they pull a City Slickers and save one steer from slaughter. But comeuppance? These girls don't know the meaning of the word (insert your own joke here). They are forced to take it from several of their less-than-impressed hosts, but they also dish it out, as witness one episode in which one unwitting antagonist is served a dog food sausage courtesy of Nicole. How much of this is staged is probably beside the point. The Simple Life is unreality television at its most addictive. Fasten your seatbelts. --Donald Liebenson

4.0 out of 5 stars Please enter a title for your review August 31, 2005
I caught a few random episodes and remained vaguely disinterested, but I've grown to love the show on dvd. The point where I realised the show had more going for it than just rich girls being high maintenance was the part where Nicole's making fun of the baseball players' stretching, "Can you guys do it at the same time ... and touch each other while you do it", and then trying to convince the opposing team's coach to cheer for her team, all the while Paris is just standing around trying to look pretty. Maybe Paris would actually be cool if she wasn't doing the fake cutesy voice and persona all the time, who knows, but anyone who finds the world at large to be an oppressively formal place will find comfort in Nicole's irreverent vulgarity.

3.0 out of 5 stars Do I have a guilty pleasure? October 5, 2006
By Meesha
This is the first season I've seen in full of the Simple Life. I've never seen the first or the fourth, and I've seen a few episodes in series 3 Interns, but otherwise that's it. I've never seen the rest of them cheap enough yet. This one was dead cheap, so I snatched it up straight away, even if I did get slated for buying it.

The thing about the Simple Life is you will rarely admit to buying it. Or admit to watching it. It's something that's meant to be kept a secret, cos it's simply not "cool".

I'm "coming out of the closet" and admitting I love watching the Simple Life. Sure, it's all scripted beyond belief, it's edited down from lots of footage to barely 20 minutes. And it stars one of the biggest self promoters you can possibly get. (Yes Paris I'm talking about you!)

But I love Nicole Richie. And despite her recent weight issues, I'll buy her biographies, and the Simple Life. She is the ultimate rock chick. And she's the true star of the show unlike Paris.

But one question is why is this show censored? The swear words are beeped out and there are some scenes where both girls are wearing low cut trousers, and it's been blurred out!!!

This will remain my one guilty pleasure, probably until I get the rest of the DVDs, but I just don't understand why it's been censored, it so stupid! That is my only quibble about this show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dem girls is funny! July 5, 2005
If you get over the fact that they're rich bit*hes that do what ever the hell they want, and just watch it for entertainment value than it is a good show. This show might make you want to smack'em or laugh at'em or you maybe you just want to see more of'em, but it will make you feel something. It's worth it.

I am a 41 female artist who "by accident" was channeling flipping and caught the first two episodes of SIMPLE LIFE 2 on E! channel as part of a repeat promo. I started laughing so hard I was crying while watching the antics of Paris and Nicole- I am sure my neighbors thought I was insane. I was lucky to catch all of SIMPLE LIFE 1 on the weekend marathon via E! Channel and then rushed out to get the rest of SIMPLE LIFE 2 on dvd because I couldn't wait to see it. I also rented SIMPLE LIFE 3. Simple Life 2 is the best, then simple life 3 then Simple Life 1. All are good. The MUST NOT miss episodes for Simple Life 2 are working as maids at EL CALIENTE (the nudist colony )and the Sheriff Office stint in texas while the girls are staying at Click ranch. If you are in need of a spiritual lift via laughter I suggest you RUN and get SL2. Nicole is a modern day Mae West and people were making fun of me for loving this series. OF COURSE they hadn't seen any of it and saying they didn't want to watch those "dumb" girls. It is obvious anyone who judges this without watching it is an idiot. I hope Nicole and Paris can mend their rift- I hear they are filming SL4 but without interacting ( huh??????!!!!). They are a modern day Laurel & Hardy mixed with Puck from a Mid Summer Night's Dream mixed with Mae West etc. Loves it!

5.0 out of 5 stars And to those who said we couldn't, we did. October 7, 2010
By Blair
Verified Purchase
In the next installment of this wildly hilarious series, famous for no reason celebrities, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie take their hijinks to the road. Their range of work includes maids at a nudist colony to helping a minor league baseball team prep. And they are sure to never miss a beat. Nicole Richie provides most of the humor, usually making absurd comments about her life as a "masseuse in Korea twenty years ago," or telling a teenage boy that the girl he first kissed is "knocked up on the street." And as usual, Paris Hilton is shocked to discover that not everyone grows up in a mansion. The episodes are very short (each runs roughly twenty minutes), yet the humor and outrageous stunts these girls pull is well worth the money. For example, after ordering more food than they could pay for, Nicole tries to convince the manager that he gave her food with bitemarks in it and insists he take it back. Need I say more? Sure, there are other products that could be bought for this amount, but none will bring this much hilarity. I STRONGLY recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nicole + Paris = Hilarious! May 23, 2006
Coming into the second season strong Paris and Nicole know how to take the same senerio and make it fresh. In fact, all three seasons so far have seen these two rich socialites plucked from the norm (to them) and placed in a place that seems foreign with people who just don't understand them. The fact remains though, that these two girls survive by being themselves, incapable of work, unwilling to work, and unable to work...and they drive everyone insane and then redeem themselves with their charm and sweet hearts (they really are sweet girls)...So this season sees them cross country traveling from FL to Cali and the who way there they stop and live with families getting jobs you'd never expect them to do. The funniest episodes involve the Local Police Dept. where they use their new power to harrass the locals & the Nudest Colony where they are hired as maids and end up posing as guests, charging food to the room and calling for another maid to clean the room. Every episode is hilarious. Who ever said Paris was only worth her sex tape hasn't seen 'The Simple Life'...oh and I must add that this show is a hoot MOSTLY because of Nicole Richie who is HISTERICAL!
