The great Pauly Shore has not had a decent film or TV role in 15 years, so you can forgive him for getting a little desperate for attention.

But this recent publicity stunt – accidental as it may be – is something not even Spencer Pratt or Heidi Montag could come up with.

In the most random celebrity feud in some time, legendary horror director Wes Craven is suing Pauly Shore – his next door neighbor – for negligence.

In court papers obtained today by Us Weekly, Wes Craven alleges Shore did not maintain or repair his yard, and as a result, water from Shore’s pool, spa and sprinklers seeped onto his property, causing a landslide on December 19, 2006.

Similar to the dispute between Bono and Billy Squire over fireplace smoke, Craven is asking Shore pay the cost to repair the damage and other related fees.

We imagine any pre-suit confrontation between the neighbors went much like the one between Shore and future Lord of the Rings star Sean Astin in their 1992 hit, Encino Man.

Basically, Pauly Shore’s largely autobiographical character, “Weasel,” was accused of caring about nothing other than smoking pot and hanging out.

If Shore really did this just to get the attention of a director, well, he succeeded. But there are better ways to get yourself back into the public eye, dog.

Try getting in the pants of Britney Spears. It’s not that challenging, and on top of not getting sued after the fact, you get to tell magazines you railed a former pop icon wheelbarrow style.

That, or claim you’re Dannielynn‘s daddy. It’s not too late.
