Paris Hilton sued for not promoting movie Thanks to a new ruling in the U.S. District Court of Miami, a lawsuit filed last year against socialite Paris Hilton will go ahead to trial, despite pleas from her lawyers to have the case thrown out.
The lawsuit is over Hilton's lack of promotion for her film National Lampoon’s Pledge This , which had a limited theatrical run before being released on DVD by Vivendi.

The suit was filed by the investor group Worldwide Entertainment Group which claims the socialite's lack of promotion cost them $8.3 million USD in investments based on the film's performance.

According to IMDB, in the movie Hilton plays a sorority president who takes in a group of unconventional freshman girls seeking acceptance into her house. The movie is also ranked #31 in the Bottom 100 list of all time, with a 1.6/10 rating.

There's only one thing she's good at and it involves being on her knees.
I really wish she'd stop attempting to act outside of hotel rooms.

I saw that video she wasn't really that good at that

these guys should have known who they were dealing with

Maybe the investors lost 8.3 million because it was just a plain bad movie. Maybe they would have lost MORE if she had promoted it!

They took a chance...they LOST.

This should not be a surprise. Had she of dropped her panties in the movie...they might have made a tab more cash from some teenagers.

If it was a good Movie...it would have made $$$. There isn't much logic to why it is the way it is.

Smarten up WEG. Pull your head out of your A$$

That's a fantasy land view of it. I can name tons of good movies that make little money and tons of bad ones that make alot of money. Money made is more an indication of the marketing budget than the quality of the movie itself.

Maybe she watched it and felt guilty.. didn't want to inflict such a pile of garbage on everybody.

oops.. sorry.. I'm giving her credit for having a brain under that fake blond mop.

Meh...you can see all the crabs you want in "Deadliest Catch" on the Discovery channel. And that would be more entertaining.

Maybe it's all "ThePirateBay's" fault. Those damn movie downloaders!!!
Downloaded it. Realized that it was a typical National Lampoon "Straight to DVD" release where the "star" doesn't get nekkid.
The Girls in it were has-been porn stars and they couldn't tell you what it was about because you don't get a lot of the plot at 6x speed.

do you understand how money works?

Anybody who has dealt with the Hollywood machine knows that movies don't make money... (That is meant with a bunch of sarcasm)

You see, in the real world, films DO make a bunch of money. Otherwise why waste the time and effort. What Hollywood does is hide the profits from a successful movie and then applies that green to the really crap movies. This way they can still keep ALL the money and claim that even though film 'X' mad a bunch, those "GROSS" profits went to balancing the 14 other shit flix that came out before. Its this kind of moronic fandango Hollywood has been playing since commercial cinema made its way into the mainstream. Trust me when I say that "NO" (nada, zilch, zero) movies have ever turned a "profit".

But don't take my word for it. Try to get your hands on a copy of "A Pound of Flesh" by Art Linson (he produced the movies The Untouchables and Fast Times at Ridgemont High). He gladly explains the nuances of how Hollywood screws the system and remains the wealthiest conglomerate in a bankrupt state.

So believe it or not, even that shitty movie still made money, just not what WEG wanted. So I guess the fat cats there will have to go bag groceries for a while till they get their chubby fingers down to a more manipulative size.

At least those crabs you don't need special shampoo to get rid of.

Maybe that is the reason why Paris did not promote the film. she just took the money and ran. Maybe this blonde is not that dumb after all.

The national lampoon series has never been a series of movies that make big noise at the theaters anyway. Well thats in OZ and what i think on the matter.
