One Decent “Hottie” Reviewer?

There’s a decent article about the Hottie and the Nottie that actually reviews and talks about the movie, and not just about Paris Hilton.

Obviously, I doubt the Hottie and the Nottie is an awful movie, even though I haven’t seen it, but you can sense that it is at least, an OK movie, and the actors and actresses worked hard on it.

Here is a review that is neither positive or negative, but rather mildly positive:

“Critically speaking, casting Paris Hilton in your movie is the kiss of death. Because of who she is, and where she comes from, the majority of reviewers are destined to walk into “The Hottie and the Nottie” having already written their review in their head. It’s cool to hate Hilton, or so it seems, but judging a film before seeing even a frame of it simply because of a cast member is biased, unfair and frankly unprofessional for those who make a living (or a serious hobby) out of being a critic. And, at the risk of going against the obvious popular majority, it should be stated up front that “The Hottie and the Nottie” isn’t half-bad. In fact, for long sections, it’s actually better than anyone could have expected.” – by a non-bias movie critic Dustin Putman

The movie IS good and the reviewer is 100% correct – haters are bashing the movie because they envy Paris Hilton and don’t want her to succeed.

But the movie is bound to make money on dvd sales and rentals alone., especially as it gets distributed world wide.

Everything isn’t envy

Being used by guys: see Rick Salomon and others

The sex tape
The drug use

The desperate loneliness. Sorry, 17 dogs, numerous cats is way beyond pet loving, that’s more like a 53 year old unmarried woman with no kids who has numerous pets in every room to keep her company. a cat lady or dog lady.

The insecurity. Fake voice, fake hair color, fake eye color, hating to be alone, shy, etc. screams insecurity. I don’t blame her as much as she’s been picked on, but she’s pretty insecure.

Putting down jews, asians, blacks and others (and actually not only putting it on videotape, but then keeping the tape in a storage locker)

there’s a lot to like about Paris, her spirit, resilience, business smarts, and there’s also plenty to dislike, at least in her past, so every negative comment about her is not necessarily envy. We’re not bound by our past, but some people don’t forgive or forget easily or quickly. Some haters are envious. Others are not. Hopefully, in the future they’ll give her a chance, but it’s not necessarily envy. (Her whole family seems kind of messed up, so it’s amazing that she’s done as well as she has.)

btw, apparently her brother, who’s been out in the clubs with her a lot was just arrested for DUI. how does an 18 yr old get popped for a DUI at 8:30 in the morning!!!!!? alcoholic!!!. If a person doesn’t like dui’s does that make them envious?

Oh get over yourself “Ellen”.
It gets a bit tiresome to hear about things that happened years ago.
No doubt there are a few problems in your own past.
People who point fingers at others usually have the most dirt in their own closets.

Also, most American families deal with a few problems while raising kids. That does not make the Hiltons any more messed up than anyone else.

People disparage others when they envy them – and your whole diatribe screams ENVY.

Also, isn’t “Ellen” the same person that posts as Miami and whatever else.

Her sneaky way of writing a few compliments while actually undermining Paris and dredging up old stuff is hard to miss.

Posting under different names would make HER the fake, not Paris.

Well, Barron’s arrest has nothing to do with Paris. Some haters would still envy Barron or Conrad because of who they are. Just check out TMZ, for example.

Haters highlight the negative aspects and mistakes, but they forget to mention the things that make them jealous. However, not all haters are jealous, but jealous haters do exist.

I think Ellen’s out there a bit relating Paris to Barron, but .14 at 8 am does scream drinking problem and I hope he gets help.

I also agree with admin. Some haters dislike the dui’s,etc and some are jealous.

(Paris does seem a bit lonely. That’s a LOT of pets. I don’t think it’s a character flaw to be lonely, though.)

Paris has explained the thing about having 17 pets on “Ellen”. She said it was b/c she didn’t get her pets spayed or neutered so they kept having babies which obviously leads to more pets. And she said she kept the dogs b/c she knows she wouldn’t want someone taking away her kid(s) from her so she felt bad to give ’em away. It’s not a loneliness thing lol

Well, I guess she seems lonely to me. pets having babies is not a new thing. As Ellen kind of implied, it’s responsible to neuter and spay your pets so you don’t wind up in such a situation.

She also fibbed about having them all fixed b/f ellen called her on it.

As stated, I don’t think it’s a character flaw, but she certainly seems lonely and the pets seem like one of the manifestations of it.

ellen calling her on it was a good natures spoof becasu she had just “called” her on watching the whole superbowl. paris did say she just had all but two of the dogs fixed. also, i don’t think all her dogs are actually at her own house. some are with differnt relatives and paris does have a full time caretaker employed to take care of the ones at her home since she travels so much. all animals should have it so good.

Lots of people make mistakes and trust the wrong person at some point in their lives. It’s not that rare for some people to be too trusting (or just unlucky) several times in their lives.

Lots of people have sex. Some people are into taping it but would hate to have it leaked or seen by someone else without their permission. Sorry if that offends any Victorian age prudes, religious prudes or 1950s housewives.

Lots of people have dabble in drugs at some point in their lives without it being a problem. Paris isn’t the one in and out of rehab all the time.

Why should we criticise or hate someone for being shy, insecure (in a non aggressive way – Paris isn’t the one bashing people all the time – it’s the other way round), or feeling lonely? A celebrity doesn’t have to be an indestructible robot that can shoot fire and crush tanks with it’s fists. I’m not a perfect human being and I don’t think it fair to hold it against Paris for being human.

As for these videos from Paris’s past? It doesn’t change who she is now or most of the time. I’m normally a good and caring person around others. I have had drunken episodes however where that would appear not to be the case. If someone captured some of those episodes in video, should it then be held over my head for ever and be used to define me as a person, no matter how often I’m good and caring after those episodes? Doesn’t seem fair. Life ain’t fair but that doesn’t mean that people are being ordered at gunpoint to be unfair or to criticise Paris for “failings” that most people have to some degree in their lives.

Also, there’s plenty of sites out there for people drop in and criticise Paris, slander Paris and pour on all their Paris hate (“I’m not a hater but…” type intros are optional). Why is it such a crime for this site to exist for actual fans who can understand, support or sympathise with Paris. Why can’t the haters stay where they’re actually welcome?
