Failed because of IDIOT voters and STUPID reviews!
3 April 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

OK, before you shout and scream at the "5" rating I give, please just read this. I think that it will help you.

Firstly, lets talk about the low 1.1 (or whatever it is now) score that this movie has been given by IMDb users. It doesn't deserve it. Yep, you heard me right. It doesn't deserve it. Why? Because the truth is - this film isn't "awful, horrendous, a crime..." or other words LAZY, IDIOTIC certain IMDb users throw about. Screaming and shouting even more? Hang on, I'll explain.

Why does it deserve 5? Because there are other films out there, that have been worse then this. Meet the Spartans for example, another film I have seen recently. That deserves to have a lower score. Why? Because it has poor acting from nearly everyone, a terrible story and a horrible attempt at a spoof. And believe me, I love my spoofs from classics such as Airplane to Hotshots right up to the Scary movie series. There are films out there that have been made with NO CARE – just for fame or money. But "The hottie and the nottie" was not one of them.

I'm going to be honest. This film wasn't the best film in the world. The acting wasn't amazing, the cinematography didn't blow me away and the cast wasn't all A list. But so what? Does every single film have to have these attributes to be "watchable"? No. This movie WAS made with some care, although not a lot. The script although cheesy at most points, wasn't as bad as (do I have to mention meet the Spartans again? How about Datemovie – yuck) others, and the acting (minus Paris Hilton) was actually decent.

So what went wrong? Well obviously you are all shouting out "Paris Hilton" by now and I do have to admit – She was pretty bad. And Paris, I hope you read this, because I am not going to be immature and throw stupid words around, but rather give some advice. You need to seriously consider acting as an ART not a "job" or a quick route to glamour and honour. Some people are born with the talent and some need to develop it through teaching and discipline. You have some evidence of ability (towards the end of the movie you don't have to wince as much watching Paris and during the "pretend drunken" scene she was actually OK) but you unfortunately HAVE to work on your abilities. You need to take time out from the crazy lifestyle you lead and spend a few years asking yourself do you want to become a SERIOUS DEDICATED actress or a laughing stock. If you put your mind to it, I'm sure you will impress most of us – but make it a comeback – wait a few years, don't just keep making half-assed attempts in many movies otherwise there will be a day when not even ANY director will hire you.

After her performance in HOUSE OF WAX, I'm not surprised many people didn't want to see this movie, but they should have still given the movie a rating based on the other actors abilities – not just Hiltons – and based on the story. I know it was clichéd and cheesy at some points, but generally I think it was a good idea, and in fact, honestly, the very end scene, on the pier did move me. That scene between the other two actors (JOEL MOORE and CHRISTINE LAKIN) showed that there WAS evidence of good acting, and that this movie could have done better.

So, if you like Romantic comedies and can spare Hilton in this, then I would say, see this movie. It's not amazing and it probably doesn't deserve more than 5 stars, but it will give you some laughs and it would also annoy those IMDb users who vote 1's because they are either immature, stupid, or jealous.

Also, don't read reviews from the likes of ROLLING STONES and others. Because what those pompous idiots write is frankly rubbish. They are just middle to upper class idiots who don't understand the meaning of "fun". They also write reviews as if they were judging the film against all time greats such as The Godfather. That's not what a review is supposed to do! In fact, I never read reviews because I want to make my own mind up about films. So, that's why I say, you might read this and think I'm praising the film. No, I'm just saying that there is worse out there and that IMDb users should really THINK before they write USELESS reviews and give BIAS votes! You might go see this movie. You might not. You might love it. You might hate it.

But whatever you do. Don't be influenced by anyone else and remember that one member of cast doesn't make or break a movie.
