Bed and Breakfast Rock-n-Roll Treat!
25 January 2003 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews

Sleeping With Strangers is one of those cuddle up in bed with a big bowl of popcorn, kinda movies. It's not heavy on the brain and keeps the laughs coming.

The film stars Adrienne Shelly as the looking for love in all the wrong places movie star, Jenny, Neil Duncan as super proper bed and breakfast owner, Daniel, Kim Huff as Teri, Daniel's fiancée and secret sweetheart of Daniel's rival, Shawn Thompson as Mark, Daniel's somewhat more modern and rival B&B owner and Scott McNeil, as Todd Warren, The Rock Star.

Guys beware; there are places in the movie where it gets a little heavy on the romance. What makes it a cool movie and keeps it from getting too sugary sweet has to be Scott McNeil's Todd Warren. Rock star Todd, pushes the movie right off the cliff.

Todd is the essence of the hyperactive; garage band stoner dude-next-door-who got saved by Rock & Roll. His light bulb doesn't shine too bright, but he's got a good heart...somewhere under the hair and through the haze.

It was almost scary to watch Scott McNeil channel David Lee Roth, but it was just the right touch. Eye candy for the ladies with a nice set of pipes to boot! Oh yes, most memorable songs, "How Does it Feel" and "Rip My Clothes Off Baby!"

This film also had a bunch of Canadian in-jokes, like Daniel's B&B serving macaroni and cheese. There were paparazzi/tabloid jokes and real people vs. star jokes. At one point, one of the star struck characters talks about Jenny, the movie star to her daughter... from two feet away, much in the same manner, as you'd talk about a zoo exhibit.

I liked this movie because it was not only fun, but also it ends well too. The characters are allowed to improve...even Todd. Enjoy!
