The Hottie and the Nottie
Visionary director Tom Putnam injects new life into the stale romantic-comedy genre by introducing a hot girl and her ugly friend, only to pull the rug right out from under us by transposing their roles when you least expect it. Turns out that the supposedly heinous-looking June (Lakin) ends up being more attractive than the not-at-all-hot-to-begin-with Cristabel (Hilton)—at least in the eyes of Nate (Moore). This is vintage She’s All That. Moreover, Hilton’s character isn’t just a soulless bitch. It’s possible that such an unlikely scenario may cause America’s brain to explode.
