Poor Paris Hilton... I feel so sorry for her.

If she had half a brain she would have run off to Canada with the car and left it there in one of her family's homes (or something) and told the folks at Mercedes that it got stolen.

good lord, what the hell happen to her. Am I old now because I can remember when she was hot?

Kutcher and Hilton make peasants feel good about their beauty.

Is this not a great service to society?

Why the hell would you need Tivo in a car? All the other crap is pretty pointless too, but Tivo? Are these retards running out of things to spend money on?

BTW, I'm getting a toaster overn put in my dash this week, It's going to be sweet.
 
2004-01-21 10:11:33 AM  
Why in the name of reason would she not give the car back? She could have easily used her mommy or daddy's credit card to buy herself one once she got back to L.A.

Sheesh.
 
2004-01-21 10:12:01 AM  
Paris deserves it because she's pretty. Pretty people are better than the rest of us!

Seriously - Tivo? When did cars become better than my home? If I want a fancy car, I want one that does the "car" thing well, not the "home theater" thing.

How does the TIVO dial in for the EPG? I wonder if it dials up with Celluar?

Yeah, cause she looks ... terrible .... now?

I saw a show on The Learning Channel last night called "Rides" . This episode featured millionaire atheletes, rap stars, and actors who sup'd up their Bentleys, Hummers, Aston Martins, etc. It's ridiculous what they put in these things. An LCD behind every headrest, zillion-watt stereos, Playstation 2s, satellite receivers, etc. They spend as much money or even more on upgrading their rides then they do buying them in the first place. Ridiculous.
 
2004-01-21 10:18:28 AM  
Every limo I've been in had horrible reception on the TV's. I know no one's running cable behind those things, and a sattelite would get fuzzy every time you went in a different direction. Why in the world would you want to TiVo fuzzy TV?

ChairmanKaga, if it has wireless internet then it probably just uses an Ethernet jack.

My guess is the internet on that thing is fairly slow though. My Sprint Vision connection is slightly faster then dialup (although the latency is in the 1 - 2 sec. range), and methinks that's the best one will do. Although you could get like 5 cellular modems and a load balancing router. That would be kinda cool...

Well, the cruxt of it is that Paris is too lazy to even bother to give it back. She didn't think to steal it. She just left it wherever she last parked it, and went home after the festival. Didn't tell anyone, and left it up to the dealer to somehow track it down. Although, I would have thought in a car like that, they'd have had lo-jack or something.

And yeah, Ashton and Demi were the absolute freebie whores of the whole thing. They actually sent LISTS in with their demands before they showed up to an event. Actually made sure they'd be completely outfitted with free ski wear before they showed up. And at one event, a designer had cashmere sweaters, and Demi left with FIVE. For some reason, when people get rich and famous, they go absolutely entitlement crazy, and even when they can completely afford expensive stuff, they want it all for free.

Same thing with actors and actresses demanding to keep their shoes and wardrobe after a talk show or shoot. Ridiculous.

Bad filmmaking meets bad science and bad philosophy in The Butterfly Effect, a science-fiction howler that suggests an entire season of a misbegotten Quantum Leap knockoff condensed into a seriously insane feature film. Just how crazy is The Butterfly Effect? Put it this way: The casting of Punk'd enthusiast Ashton Kutcher as a dark, tormented genius actually qualifies as one of its more plausible elements.

Kutcher doesn't even figure prominently in most of the film's first act, which recounts its protagonist's tortured upbringing in a not-so-idyllic small town whose chief industry seems to be manufacturing childhood trauma. Eventually, that protagonist grows up to be Kutcher, a science geek investigating the formative crises of his youth as a way of explaining his own fractured psyche. A love story between Kutcher and Amy Smart ostensibly anchors the film, but instead of the traditional boy-gets-girl, boy-loses-girl, boy-gets-girl-back arc, Butterfly Effect lays out a plot in which boy meets girl, falls for her, accidentally kills her, unkills her, and encounters an alternate reality in which she's a beaten-up junkie whore. (Not necessarily in that order.)

Butterfly Effect skitters restlessly back and forth through alternate realities like the Cliffs Notes version of Slaughterhouse-Five, in the process affording its cast an opportunity to adopt and discard a slew of different personalities and identities. Fans of Kutcher, from little girls to prominent gay sex-advice columnists, will be delighted to find that there are actually something like half a dozen different Ashton Kutchers in the film's alternate realities, all of them thinly conceived and unconvincing. There's the "Where's the rest of me?" amputee Kutcher, frat boy Kutcher, an unkempt Kutcher who looks like the hirsute love child of Jack Black and Charles Manson, and, most memorably, jailhouse Kutcher, who spends time in a prison where getting punk'd doesn't involve celebrity pranks. It's hard not to like a film in which an overhyped pretty boy offers to perform oral sex on a muscle-bound neo-Nazi convict, or in which gifted young character actor Elden Henson gets to play both his usual troubled misfit and a long-haired hunk who out-dreamboats Kutcher to win Smart's heart. (The romance-novel version of Henson is a little like Philip Seymour Hoffman playing Fabio.)

Those are just two of the many reasons The Butterfly Effect is a bad-movie-lover's heaven, and a good-movie-lover's hell. Nathan Rabin

The Good: I had one serious problem with this film: I couldnt find anything wrong with it. The story and writing is absolutely fabulous. The directing is sharp and intriguing. Even Kutcher (who I had no respect for before this film) was perfectly cast and took the role very seriously. The beautiful Amy Smart also proves that she can act as she plays many different characters convincingly throughout Kutchers alternate universes. Kudos go to these brave filmmakers and New Line studio for bringing us this very unusual and risky film.

The Bad: There are lots of scenes that many will find very offensive. It is very appropriate that the kids in the film go to see the movie Seven, for this film is just as disturbing. It is violent in a much scarier way than you could possibly prepare yourself for. In other words, weak hearts and stomachs need not see this one.

The Summary: This terrific but disturbing psychological thriller will have you cringing and thinking at the same time. Hitchcock would be proud.


reviews suck.....i'm going to see it for myself

I watched the same thing last night...got me to realize that the population really needs to be thinned out. I can understand the new wheels for that Ferrari, that almost makes sense. But the rest of them? Man, some people need to be euthanized.

i wasn't trying to say anyhting about you...just saying i hate reading good reviews...then seeing it and being all dissapointed...i try to avoid them..unless apparently i wake up and am grumpy and want to prove my point...regardless i don't have the highest hopes...

i hope to be pleasantly surprised though

I think people are missing the big outrage: Ashton Kutcher and Paris Hilton are at Sundance, where smaller budgeted GOOD films are showcased!!? What, has "Dude, Where's My Girlfriend" emerged from the underground film scene to showcase new talent? Who's that driving off in the 3rd SUV? Oh, that's credibility. Don't try catching up to that one.
 
2004-01-21 10:32:03 AM  
kicks ... I saw the same Rides show last night and couldn't believe my eyes. This is the reason that I do not attend professional sporting events unless the tickets are free. I refuse to give these spoiled athletes any of my money.

So Paris took a 100k car... and didnt return it?

A festival that was originally founded as a leg up for indie and art house filmmakers but has recently been overshadowed as 'the place to be' for celebs.
 
2004-01-21 10:34:01 AM  
those of you dumping on the festival...do you know what the sundance film festival is?

I thought it was a celebration of artistic, independent films, but apparently it has degraded into something where reality tv stars get $100,000 cars to roll around in.
 
2004-01-21 10:34:35 AM  
Checking Rotten Tomatoes for it Butterfly effect is only at 38% fresh. but with only 8 reviews in its to early to judge. I still think it looks like it stole a bunch of ideas from Donnie Darko but i want to see it anyways.

It's all good. I've adopted the same philosophy - if I'm really excited about an upcoming movie, I will NOT read any articles, etc., about it. It only builds the movie up to a point where it can't possibly live up to the hype, even if it's good.
 
2004-01-21 10:35:47 AM  
Exactly, reviews suck. Ashton is apparently a fairly smart guy, how many of you majored in biochem? With that said, he is way over-exposed and the Kelso, Dude Where's My Car, and even Punk'd shows have forever typecasted him. I'd rent the Butterfly Effect, wouldn't buy it.

"For some reason, when people get rich and famous, they go absolutely entitlement crazy, and even when they can completely afford expensive stuff, they want it all for free. Same thing with actors and actresses demanding to keep their shoes and wardrobe after a talk show or shoot. Ridiculous."

Actually it's quite smart. Ever notice how the "hottest" celebs are ALWAYS shown on TV when attending these events? This amounts to free advertising for the designers of the clothes they are wearing. That "free" publicity is usually worth more than the articles of clothing. Imagine how much a 30 second commercial during the Oscars would cost. Exactly.

Not saying they can't afford the stuff. But just like showing up at a restaurant, the hype is worth more than the cost of the comped meal.

2004-01-21 10:37:11 AM  
i'll have to agree it's a bad sign the festival is the place to be now for celebs....because there are actually good things happening there...some of the people just don't need to be around
