The Hillz is a surreal look at four teenage boys coming of age. This slice-of-life comedic drama is set in an affluent neighborhood of present-day America. The story chronicles these teenagers' pursuit of respect, friends, girls, and the almighty dollar (aka status). After a year away at college, our hero, Steve returns home to find his friends haven't changed, but his old neighborhood is remarkably different. A stellar athlete, Steve is on a high from recently winning the College World Series. He's got his future and he knows it: girls, money and a sure top-ten pick in the Major League draft. The only thing missing is the only thing he can't have: the gorgeous Heather Smith. On a mission to win Heather over, Steve finds himself up against Heather's seemingly perfect boyfriend, Todd. To make matters worse, Steve discovers his beautiful suburban hills have been turned into an ultra-violent drug zone, controlled by his own high school friends.

Most of the acting in this film was just terrible. Paris Hilton is beyond horrid as an actress. She looks like shes stoned through out most of the film. She was just awful. I was not impressed one bit. It felt like she was reading her lines right out of the script, no emotion at all. I'd give her a 2/10. Jesse Woodrow would be a 6/10. He seems to have been the only character who was believable. He needs some more experience as an actor and he will probably do fine. I would give Rene Heger 5/10. He's character was some what believable, and he looked the part. As for the directing of the film, it seems they did the best with what they had to work with. I would not recommend this film to anyone, unless they want a good laugh at Parises acting.
