An all-around great flick.....A+, 15 September 2001
Author: Smooth B from Somewhere In Illinois

"Hotel Exotica" was the movie that gave me the idea to start writing reviews on IMDB about B-movie/softcore/erotica films. It's just that good. Well, good within its own particular genre!

It starts off with Landon Hall (a great looking woman, why isn't she in more movies?) as Carly, a frustrated woman whose significant other can't seem to spend time with her outside of having sex with her. She arranges a romantic weekend in a cozy cottage up in the hills, called "Hotel Exotica." He tells her he can go, but then "something comes up" and he decides not to go.

Her sister Rachel, played by the extremely flexible Ahmo Hight, has just caught her boyfriend cheating on her with another woman (played by Nikki Fritz). Rachel volunteers to go on the trip with Carly instead, and they become overwhelmed by the sexual energy in the place....it's almost like a bordello!

Then comes the psychic, played by Taylor St. Clair (yes, I do mean the porn star). She has an awesome sex scene with Rachel in the kitchen, where Rachel does the first of her many splits. Now that is some flexibility!

Eventually, Carly's hubby comes down, and he brings his business partner along with him. This causes Rachel to drool. You know where this is going before it even happens!

Whereas Carly seems to be more low-key sexually, Rachel has this "I know you want me, so come do me" attitude about her the entire movie. She just emits this aura of sexuality. Everything about her is sexy. Ahmo plays this character so effortlessly you'd think she was playing herself.

Carly has some rather uninspiring sex scenes, featuring her mostly on her back looking aimlessly in the air. She's not really into it at all. I don't know whether it's because of her character or something else.

Rachel's sex scenes are very....um, athletic. She bends over backwards, does splits, puts her legs over her head, and all kinds of other body-twisting activities. The last sex scene she does in the movie is some of the most vigorous sex I've seen on the screen in a long time.

The story is simple, yet effective. Not much else you can say about that.

All in all, it's a well-rounded movie with good looking women, great sex scenes, and just the right amount of story mixed in. This is probably what you'd look for in a movie in this genre.

Sex: A+ Women: A Story: A Overall: A+
