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 »

Enjoyable time-killer
2 April 1999 | by (North Bay, Ontario) – See all my reviews

Most Australian comedies that I have seen have disappointed me because their seemingly mandatory quirkiness is instantly supposed to be funny. For me at least, weird behaviour does not necessarily equal big laughs. "Hotel de Love" seemed to be a little less quirky, and perhaps that is why I liked it. That is not to say that this is without flaws, for it has one big one. But even though this film spends too much time showing the LEAST interesting couple, the other relationships are sufficiently interesting to overcome this mistake. I can't call this anything great, but it is certainly a pleasant way to kill some time.
