Hilton's Film Savaged By Critics

PARIS HILTON's new movie has been savaged by critics, who fear director DARREN LYNN BOUSMAN's toughest job was editing the socialite out of his film.
The Saw films director had admitted he had reservations about signing Hilton up for his movie, but insists she was a pleasure to work with. But critics state she isn't a pleasure to watch on screen in Repo! The Genetic Opera.
Los Angeles Times critic Mark Olsen writes, "The film is bad - not good-bad, tacky-bad or fun-bad, just plain awful and nearly unwatchable."
And he's even more scathing of Hilton's performance in the bizarre cosmetic surgery horror musical.
Olsen adds, "It seems the production has had to cut around the ubiquitous Paris Hilton, as she is never glimpsed in anything but brief, fleeting shots and her hoarse bark of a singing voice is used as little as possible."
Meanwhile, the San Jose Mercury suggests the film is "as bad as it gets", adding it's "easily one of the worst movies of the year, if not all time."
The film is released in U.S. cinemas on Friday (07Nov08).
