The Hottie & the Nottie is a comedy about opening your heart and closing your eyes. It centers on a "perfect 10" woman, Cristabel Abbott (Hilton); her less fortunate best friend, June Phigg (Lakin); and the guy who gets in the middle. Having pined away for Cristabel since the first grade, twenty-something Nate Cooper (Moore) must find a boyfriend for the less-than-beautiful June before he will even have a shot at landing the girl of his dreams.
