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.

Amazon.com

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

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.

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.

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.

This show is all-around just fun. It's not meant to be some great television show, nor some extremely real reality show. It's just what it is.

I find it very funny to see grown people getting mad at this show and then making fun of Paris and Nicole for being stupid and spoiled. Because what those adults don't seem to understand is that the entire SHOW is making fun of Paris and Nicole being stupid and spoiled. Paris and Nicole are also BOTH making fun of themselves being stupid and spoiled. They have a good sense of humor about themselves and their public image, so they were making fun of it with this show. That was kind of the entire point.

I find it absolutely ridiculous that grown adults still have that mentality of "NO! I'M ALLOWED TO MAKE FUN OF YOU BUT WHEN YOU JOIN IN AND START LAUGHING AT YOURSELF IT'S NOT FUNNY ANYMORE." Grow up, people. Stop taking everything so goddamn seriously.

The show is absolutely hilarious if you take it for what it is and just admire the girls for having a sense of humor about who they are. People just need to take a step down off of their OWN blue collar thrones and stop thinking that Paris and Nicole are beneath them simply because they're always in the spotlight. It's not a crime to be silly. In fact, it's BETTER not to take yourself too seriously. After all, what fun is life if you're acting like every single second needs to be spent with a serious look on your face?

This show is great at what it does. It's just a shame that some people are extremely prejudiced against the two girls.

Continuing with the same theme of Season One (the girls must hand over their cash, credit cards, and cell phones and live "the simple life" for 30 days), this season sees Paris and Nicole driving a pink pick-up truck, with a trailer attached, coast to coast, as they attempt to hold minimum-wage jobs at a variety of different establishments, including working as maids at a nudist resort. The girls manage to get themselves in trouble many times, nearly getting caught once. With the girls always creating chaos everywhere they go, this DVD will have you laughing along with the girls as they try to live "the simple life."

I love it,great entertainment, Paris and Nicole rock it, all others are posers. I wish they would do a new show where they film the entire series in Hawaii,doing odd jobs and mingling with the locals,and it's so spectacular there, I would love it....that's hot.. peace! Update,just finished season 2,and I'm happy to say that missing episode 8 from season 1 is exclusively on the season 2 special features. "Loved 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!
