On May 6th...See Paris Die!
The flesh is weak. Wax is forever
There's a reason they look so real
Factual Mistake
Wade would have suffocated almost immediately after being encased in wax, and placed in a sitting position that does not allow him to respirate. Which in fact he would not be alive sometime later.

Nick and Carly run through the melting wax house, and they emerge covered in molten wax, without the severe burns which should result.
Warner Brothers granted Paris Hilton permission to sell t-shirts that read "On May 6th, Watch Paris Die" only to promote the film before its release.

Earlier Jeff Celentano was rumored to direct the film.

The death of Paris Hilton's character was originally longer and featured more gore but it was cut for the theatrical release.

Elisha Cuthbert got stuck repeatedly in the melting wax bed while filming the final scenes of the movie, to the fact the "wax" was actually peanut butter.

Carly and Nick in the movie theatre were they are hiding, most of the wax figures were actually extras wearing masks.
