check in, check out the flick, but no promises
30 October 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

You see the front cover of Pink Motel, you think you're in for a sex comedy, where you're gonna see naked bodies running around every five minutes. WRONG. WAY WRONG. What you're gonna see are four stories, as we cut back and forth from room to room, with over length dialogue (most of it bad) where occasionally we're treated to some screen time from the leads who run this famous motel. For those who don't know, the Pink Motel is an American icon, that's used in a a lot of other movies. It's hard to suppress your disappointment with this 80's flick. What you get instead, is a young couple getting ready for that special night, the girl, very indecisive about doing it, spouting a line like, "I'm not sure this is how I'd really like to remember it". Next we have a weasel of a lawyer and his hot looking mistress, also in the judicial system, who argue through nearly all of their screen time, you almost want to go in there and shoot them, they are really that annoying. When they make up, and good ol' George thinks everything's square again, check out the lipstick message on the back of his shirt, he's oblivious to. It almost makes sitting through their arguing duel worth it. Revenge is also served, viewer wise, when George goes to the front desk, and is overcharged for a bottle of champagne, $140, if I remember correctly. Pricey, hey? Then we have hunk pro football player (Tony Longo of course, The Last Boy Scout bring back any memories) who nearly side scrapes George's car when pulling into the lot. He finally admits to his current girl, a skimpy babe, he's da da, a virgin. Who cares, really? Longo's also pretty annoying, talking football non stop. When in the room, he talks an old game, gestures and all (I'm sure for her benefit) when all the girl wants to do is have sex. He just won't let up. He's funny though. When he admits his virginity, it actually comes as a sheer relief. And last but not least, are the hot looking 20's foursome, that add some spark to this flick. Skip's a hoot. He's so full of vain, but he should learn how to better prepare drinks. Him and his mate should be trusting of women, as you'll find out, if viewing this. Despite of all of what I've just written, I still enjoy this flick. Call me mad, most people do, ha ha, but this movie does have something going something for it. I only wish I knew what.
