'The Hottie' is nottie

Paris Hilton's "The Hottie and the Nottie" hit the multiplexes this weekend. Well, a few multiplexes. According to Box Offfice Mojo, it was only on 111 screens and earned a grand total of $27,696 -- or $249 per screen. That's an average of $83 per screen per day -- if you assume 4 showings per day on each screen, that would mean about $21 per showing, or an average of two to three people in the theater each time, depending on the price of the ticket. I'm no expert, but that's not very good.

Personally, I feel that this excellent film was dogged by bad publicity as a result of Paris's younger brother's DUI arrest. As hard as she tries professionally, she still has to be tainted by the sins of her family. It's just like poor Britney, although she is a super-talent, the unwed pregnancy of her younger sister threatens to tarnish her legacy.

Sadly, it's not even in my two nearby multiplexes anymore. Gone after six days. (As is that Vince Vaughn comedian tour movie, whatever it was called, which was playing at one of them.) Yet Alvin and the Chipmunks lives on!

e.(mily) liked it because the men's tits were bigger than the women's.
