  • Although I don\\\'t watch the show all too often, this really cracked me up!

    Tori Spelling is an actress who at first was completely spoiled, and reminds of Paris Hilton now, but I think she\\\'s learning and she\\\'s actually a better actress because of it. In this episode, it was hilarious that they used a blackberry to motivate all the humor, just being plain silly about how this one guy who had could be anyone, anywhere, and how they could get it back. The sex shop was ridiculously funny because we find out that\\\'s where she lost her phone, and then we go from there, and c\\\'mon...when you lose your blackberry in a sex-shop, do you think you can create a bad episode from there? I don\\\'t think so! Classic!moreless
  • Paris Hilton could never write a show this witty, but the originally spoiled celebrity shows her range.

    After years of being considered a spoiled rich celebrity mooching off of her dad's success, Tori makes a show to tell everyone..... they were right!



    Tori isn't afraid to make fun of herself in her new comedy. The writing is good, and so is her comedic acting. This is the role she should have done after 90210 ended; and I think she knows so, since the series is supposed to take place at this time.



    In this pilot Tori declares her indepedence as she moves out of her parents' mansion and into an apartment using her own money.... the money she made off working on her dad's show, she humorously admits. The show is full of similarly clever self-deprication, and Tori comes off looking like a pretty down to earth person as a result.



    I'll be watching this one in the future for sure.moreless
  • Make Fun Of Her All You Want, But Tori Spelling And Her New Show Are Great!

    8.0
    I've liked Tori Spelling since her '90210' days - and I started watching that show in it's first season. As seasons progressed, she improved as an actress, but yet the public and critics alike condemned her because, of course, she was Aaron Spelling's daughter and grew up in an affluent Holmby Hills mansion - a Hollywood child. She then became a made-for-tv movie queen and then started showing some real acting chops in independent cult classics like "The House Of Yes" and "Trick," as well as co-starring in "Scary Movie 2." With her new VH1 series "So Notorious," she proves that she has come into her own - both this episode and the 2nd episode were extremely entertaining. It's refreshing that Tori pokes fun at herself, her family, other celebrities, and Hollywood in general - not many performers would put themselves on the spot for the world to see like that. Tori is terrific and she's never looked better - she's complimented by an appealing supporting cast and Loni Anderson provides some good moments as Tori's mother. If this show even partially reveals what she is like in real life, Tori is probably one of the most underrated and sweet actresses in Tinseltown. I hope that "So Notorious" succeeds and continues the tongue-in-cheek hilarity of it's first two episodes.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • The mini-monologue Tori had to say about the movie "Stolen Lola" was always messed up. The scene was edited to make it look like she said it right, but she really only said parts of it at a time. Tori only said it right once, which ended up being in a deleted scene for this episode.

  • QUOTES (23)

    • Sasan: It is time to say goodbye to Dori Tori and say hello to Tori... Tori.

    • Sasan: Tori, you did things last night that I didn't even think possible. You ran, you yelled, you assaulted balls.

    • Tori: He's blowing me off! "Please stop emailing me, showing up at my premieres, sending me topless photos"?
      Sasan: (gasps) The pictures from the skybar! Oh my god, do you think the guy that stole your blackberry sent them to everyone on your email list?

    • Tori: Oh my god... I just assaulted someone's balls.

    • Tori: Just look for someone who looks like a criminal.
      Sasan: Tori, this is Hollywood. They all look like criminals.

    • Tori: Janey, it's one of your benches.
      Ruthie: What a fantastic picture! Oh look, someone drew you smoking a cigar.
      Sasan: A cigar with testicles...

    • Sasan: Tori, you shaved!
      Tori: It was a premiere!

    • Janey: How do we get out?!
      Sasan: The doors only open 2 inches. Quick, Tori, run for help!

    • Sasan: Is that menu supposed to be following us?

    • Tori: Hi. I'd like one spicy quesadilla and a bean and cheese burrito.
      Sasan, Janey, and Ruthie: NO BEANS!
      Tori: Fine. Make that a macho taco.

    • Janey: Where are you going to get 300 dollars from? Your butt?
      Sasan: She'd have a better shot there than in her purse.

    • Ruthie: Why would you steal cheese? The government gives it away, you just have to fill out forms.

    • Tori: Okay, yelling at this guy? Really fun.
      Sasan: Let me! I wanna try... This is Sergeant Bill... O'Reilly and we are tracking your location via satellite and we intend on prosecuting you to the fullest extent of the law, bitch!

    • Tori: $300 is a lot of money.
      Janey: How much were those shoes?
      Tori: That is so not the point.

    • Tori: Cops are supposed to help you, not mock you.

    • Tori: I just wanna catch the guy.
      Cop: You're kidding right?
      Tori: He stole my blackberry. I want it back!
      Cop: Ok, I'll tell you what. You just take a seat, and we'll call in S.W.A.T. And if that doesn't get him, we'll get Starsky and Hutch on it. And maybe the Mod Squad.

    • Tori: I'd like to report a crime.
      Sasan: A really, really bad one.
      Tori: Some jerk stole my blackberry.
      Ruthie: Now this is a sensitive situation. My client can't have any negative press so if perhaps you have some sort of celebrity division...

    • (Sasan drops shackles into Tori's shopping basket)
      Sasan: What? I met somebody.

    • Tori: I'm not going to be able to sleep unless I can start getting into Lola's head and experience the pain of a Brazilian street whore.

    • Sasan: I mean, how many more times can he cast Julia Roberts?
      Janey: Yeah, she's old and has babies.

    • Ruthie: Look at you. You're a fantastic whore!
      Tori: Ruthie. Not trying to look like a whore.
      Ruthie: But you do anyway!

    • Sasan: Nothing says desperate like an e-mail from Tori Spelling!

    • Sasan: You stepped on his foot and made him spill his drink on Sara Gilbert.
      Tori: He made me self-conscious.
      Janey: You wussed out.
      Tori: Sara Gilbert could kill me! I'm trying to convince Steven Soderbergh I can play a street-smart whore and I'm afraid of Roseanne's daughter.

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • When Tori pulls up to her parents gate, they show an S emblem on the gate and a shot of the top of the home like the show Dynasty, and when she enters her parents' home and hear the Charlie's Angels theme after her father's voice come through the speaker. Both shows her father Aaron Spelling produced.
