Storyline

10 years ago at a party, Steven thinks he sees the girl of his dreams, Melissa. Just as he's about to make his move, his twin brother Rick gets to her first and they fall in love. Steven watches his brother's relationship bloom, longing for Melissa all the while. Eventually, Melissa leaves to go to college and the brothers go on with their lives. Steven becomes a workaholic to block out his feelings about Melissa and Rick becomes a spineless bellboy at the Hotel de Love, after a later girl friend stood him up at the altar. Enter Steven and Rick's warring parents visiting the Hotel de Love for their anniversary. Re-enter Melissa with her current boyfriend, Norman. Suddenly Rick and Steven have a second chance at Melissa. Also there's Alison the palm reader, Susie behind the counter, the owner/piano player, and the freshly married couple.

Trivia

A subplot involving Susan (the girl behind the counter) and Matt (a worker at the hotel) was cut. Matt gives Melissa some boxer shorts that cost $20. She doesn't have the money, but he lets her go, saying that she owes him. Throughout the movie, Matt was supposed to pop up at inopportune moments asking for the $20. It seems Susan wanted a physical symbol of their love. Matt never gets the $20. They fight, and by the end of the film, he gets Melissa's necklace from Rick. Director Craig Rosenberg cut this subplot because it was not totally necessary. See more »

Low end Aussie romcom
4 January 2004 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

Twin brothers fall in love with the same woman (Burrows) as teens. Fast forward ten years and they own a honeymoon retreat, encounter their old flame who has come for her wedding, and attempt to pick up where they left off in spite of the presence of the groom. What follows in the denouement is a bit clumsy and awkward at times with low end production value and relatively unknown actors. However, factor in some side characters and an ample helping of vintage pop love songs and you have a mildly amusing little flick with some heart which should make an okay small screen watch for those in the mood for romcom fare. Keep expectations real and enjoy. (C+)
