Paris Hilton sued

Paris Hilton is being sued for non promotion of the 2006 flop, National Lampoon's Pledge This!.  Court papers filed in Miami claim that Paris Hilton was paid $1 million for acting services and "reasonable promotion and publicity" of the film.

Worldwide Entertainment Group Inc. are asking for the return of $75,000.

Given that the film is 90 minutes long, she was paid $171 a second for her acting during the film, so it seems they wanted 7 minutes of acting (that it was a good movie) in front of journalists.

Mean old Paris couldn't even give them that.
