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 »

A surprisingly pleasant film to watch
17 September 2000 | by (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) – See all my reviews

I have watched many films from Down Under and tremendously enjoyed most of them. Australian films have

a distinct "flavour"; probably part of it comes from the

accent!!! However, the title of this one did not even attract

me at first but I thought I'd give it a try after reading a short

review of the film in some magazine. And I'm glad I did. In

spite of all the "kitsch", it was certainly a good watch........it

actually left a pleasant aftertaste! In fact, it would not have

been as good without the "kitsch". Well played out by the

actors/actresses.....a memorable one being the piano player/hotel owner with his songs.
