Kim Kardashian's performance in "Tyler Perry's Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor" is getting panned by critics, so perhaps Perry is now regretting his decision to cast an "actress" whose claims to fame include a sex tape and starring in one of the worst movies of all time.
According to The Wrap, "Disaster Movie" has been ranked by IMDb as the worst movie on the website's "Bottom 100" list. Kim teamed up with Carmen Electra to film a sexy wrestling scene spoofing the WWE, but the scantily-clad sex symbols couldn't save the movie from becoming a box office disaster.
"Disaster Movie" was the work of Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg, a directing duo that was already used to getting critically clobbered for sloppy spoofs like "Date Movie" and "Epic Movie" before they decided to take on flicks about disasters. However, Kim was excited to work with the guys. This is what she told Moviefone during a 2008 interview: "I auditioned for this. It was actually my first audition, and I got the role. And it's my first movie. I had heard what a great reputation Aaron and Jason have had, and I was just so excited to come on board." When confronted with Aaron and Jason's bad rep with critics, Kim countered by saying, "I have a new 'hate is the new love' theory. And I just think that the movies speak for themselves." Apparently it was a bad idea to let "Disaster Movie" open its mouth.
Speaking of speaking, Kim's voice didn't go over too well with some of the critics who have seen her performance in Tyler Perry's "Temptation." The Hollywood Reporter wrote that her "monotonous line readings demonstrate that she saved her real acting talents for her sex tape," and The Wrap labeled her "nasal and awful." In the movie Kim plays a bitchy, fashion-obsessed employee of a professional matchmaker, so it kind of sounds like she managed to fail at playing an alternate version of herself. Tyler Perry defended his casting of Kim by saying that he wanted someone in the movie that young people look up to.
At least Tyler can look forward to the movie winning one award -- surely Kim Kardashian will snag a Razzie for her performance. She got nominated for her performance in "Disaster Movie," but she lost to her old pal Paris Hilton. Paris' beat Kim for her role in the terribly titled "The Hottie & the Nottie," which snagged the number two spot on IMDb's "Bottom 100" list. Paris' movie "Pledge This!" also landed at number five, so apparently it's a terrible idea for directors to cast sex tape stars who move on to reality TV in their movies.
Speaking of Paris Hilton, perhaps she and Kim will consider teaming up for a movie someday. The old pals allegedly fell out when Kim started becoming more famous than Paris, but it sounds like they've repaired the rift -- Paris recently referred to Kim as her friend while discussing a controversial Ford ad with TMZ.
The India-based ad in question features a caricature drawing of Paris sitting in the front seat of a car with Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian tied up in the back. The tagline reads, "Leave Your Worries Behind."
Of course the Kardashians are exploring their legal options, but perhaps they should embrace the idea presented in the ad instead. Now that Paris is back on good terms with Kim, they could use the ad as the inspiration for a movie about the jealous heiress kidnapping her reality show rivals. Critics and audiences would hate it, but it would surely sweep the Razzie Awards.
