Storyline

Richie and Eddie are in charge of the worst hotel in the UK, Guest House Paradiso, neighbouring a nuclear power plant. The illegal immigrant chef has fled and all the guests have gone. But when a famous Italian filmstar, Gina Carbonara, who is in hiding from a fiance she doesn't want to marry, arrives at the hotel, things get very interesting! Another family come to the hotel as it is the only one they can afford, and when Richie uses the many tunnels and airways to steal some of their rubber bikinis, then is caught by the family's dad, he tries everything to get the video back. When Eddie finds some radioactive fish and it's served to the customers, a bunch of power plant workers find out and a quaratine is on its way. Even worse, when Gina's estranged fiance arrives, all hell breaks loose! Just in time for Eddie, Richie and Gina to escape to the Carribean and spend all their new found money!

Trivia

Adrian Edmondson likened the experience of directing this film to "running through a safari park in your underpants with only a plastic fork to protect yourself". See more »

Goofs

When Richie gets the pencil shot into his rear, he knocks over the table (which two guests are also sitting at), knocking over all the items on the table. Then Richie and Eddie fight in the kitchen, and it then cuts back to a reaction shot of the two guests sitting at the same table, only now the items on the table are all suddenly back upright and intact again.

Quotes

Richard Twat: I trust you two both washed.
Mr Johnson: Actually, the water was cold.
Richard Twat: That's no reason not to wash, is it? Good grief, we are British, you know. We invented cold showers to stop people masturbating. Oh, I see, maybe that's why you are so upset about the lack of hot water.

Guest House Paradiso is Rik's and Ade's finest hour
29 August 2003 | by (Bath, England) – See all my reviews

Guest House Paradiso is Rik's and Ade's finest hour, given the big screen treatment it is way better than Bottom. I really do not understand why this film has such bad press is it Rik's reputation and his love hate relationship with the tabloids? The manic cartoonish violence, the bottom/toilet humour and schoolboy jokes are not everyone's cup of tea but Ade and Rik as their characters in the TV show are, are purposely absurd and unsophisticated characters, this is why internationally they are immediately recognisable and loved. Mayall and Edmondson do their best to craft a wonderfully crude film with humour that will be understood in ever country on the planet, if this is what they set out to do, to make an international popular hit, they succeeded hands down. So in my humble opinion this Guest House Paradiso is a stonking success and their finest hour.
