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

Those paying close attention would have noticed that the neighboring power station is a subtle rude joke. The smoking tower and the two domes below are amusingly shaped to resemble a penis and testicles. See more »

Goofs

Around the time Eddie can be heard to say, "No! No! Not the fridge!" string is visible pulling the lamp that is knocked sideways. See more »

Quotes

Saucy Wood Nymph: Come gather, saucy wood nymphs, come from your groves! It is Richie!
Richard Twat: [Delighted to see he is surrounded by five scantily dressed wood nymphs] Hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, birds!
Saucy Wood Nymph: Come, love nymphs. Out of respect for Richie, let us all take out our great knockers, and wobble them about a bit.
Saucy Wood Nymph: Oh yes, do let's!
Saucy Wood Nymph: No, other love nymphs. First let us open our magic fairy briefcases, and shower our lord with bundles of unmarked tenners. Erotically.
All: Hurrah, yes! What a smashing idea!
Saucy Wood Nymph: But first, ...

Go rent it/buy it now ... NOW I TELL YOU!!
26 January 2005 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is probably the funniest thing I have ever seen - from start to finish it was perfect in timing, atmosphere, punch lines, background music, fighting sequences and every other possible aspect you can think of. To be absolutely honest i find this movie as funny as their (Rik & Ade's) sitcom "Bottom" - maybe even funnier. I laughed constantly throughout the whole movie and can only recommend seeing this film... However, if you watch it without knowing (or liking?) the type of comedy Rik Mayall and Ade Edmondson has done before, you might not think it's funny at all - but I REALLY can't understand those who dislike it - THIS IS HUMOUR FOLKS!!! (People getting hit with frying pans, guys running around wearing red rubber lingerie, green vomit filling the hallways, guys getting kicked in the b******s and getting candlesticks in the eyes - HOW can this NOT be funny???) 10/10
