Storyline

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. The ruthless gang is led by the sadistic ... Written by anonymous

10 Things I Hate About 'The Hillz'
27 January 2006 | by (Tacoma, WA) – See all my reviews

1. Paris Hilton is the biggest name in the movie.

2. Using a "z" to urbanize a title is "so four years ago" (to quote Paris in the movie).

3. It's another movie about wiggers who have watched 'Menace II Society' and 'Kids' too much (I'd even recommend 'Havoc' over this junk).

4. The narrator spouts clichés right and left ("After that summer, our lives were never the same...").

5. Really unnecessary "flashbacks" to scenes that had just ended (not even Leonard Shelby's memory is that short!).

6. I swear the cast was stoned (before they get stoned in the movie) because there is no other excuse for acting this poor.

7. If a certain popular four-letter word didn't exist, this movie would be half as long.

8. I saw the boom mike twice and wasn't even looking for it (the second time it almost hit someone in the head).

9. The narrator is the only sympathetic character and yet he mumbles all his lines (except in his crystal-clear narration, of course).

10. What's with the grainy scenes in the car? Did Rick Salomon shoot those too?
