Paris Hilton delivers, as always!
28 October 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I only watched this because of Paris, and boy did she deliver! Her acting was brilliant, and saved the film from the poor performances of all the hacks alongside her who conspired to ruin each and every day of filming for her. My heart goes out to her.

She said to TMZ: "it was more difficult then all the other films I had acted in. It was challenging to work with Gandolfini, Mantegna, and Carell because I'm not sure they took it as seriously as I did. I always came prepared, knew my lines, and was a professional".

See? Poor girl. Those amateur clowns probably made each day of filming a living hell for poor Paris. They should be punished! Decades from now, when we are all gone, people will look back at the stars of this generation, and atop that list will certainly be the talented, stylish, intelligent, and iconic Paris Hilton. Just as we look back at Monroe, Bogart, and Brando today, she'll be a legend forever.

She's the brightest, shiniest, and most goodest star in all the heavens, and an inspiration to all young women around the world, even those dark peoples with flies all over the place. Jesus gots nothing on her! The church of Paris will have billions of followers before the end of the decade. Everyone in my trailer park agrees, so don't even try an hate on holy mother Hilton! If Mother Theresa woulda had the good sense to make a skanky low-rent sextape, she could have been the one. But she didn't! Only Paris had the wherewithal for such forward-thinking and next-level consciousness. Plus, Mother T wasn't very pretty. Or stylish.

Women, learn from this. Ascend to the spiritual heights which you've seen can be attained. Forget your silly nonsensical values, intellect, class, morality, ethics, and chastity. These things mean little. Do what you want, when you want. Worried about contracting an STD? Don't! It's just one step closer to Hiltonization. Don't you want to be more holy!? And speaking of 'holy', feel free to share your "Holy of Holies" with anyone, and everyone, at all times. Become more like Paris! Aim High!!!! Paris Hilton: Icon.




HAIL Paris! Paris SAVES!
