A hotel that should have been forgotten
20 December 2009 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Characters are unbelievable. They also have a lot of "important" things happening in their life. But to be honest why should it interest me a siamese twin only think about sex? Why do I care about some moron from the hotel argue with an employee on the post office that also comes at the hotel? Do I really care about if the main characters father is a racist?

I think the movie is intended to be filled with comic situations. At least that is my suspicion about all those awkward moments.

A movie for people that believe they are intellectual superior or love gossip about other people. No story to tell here,so why make the movie?
