"Bed and Breakfast" is a romantic comedy about a saleswoman from a large department store in Rio who discovers she has inherited property in the wine country of California. She could never expect what she would find in Webster, a small country town. Written by
Dean Cain brightens up anything he's in, but he couldn't save this poorly written mess.
There was an idea here with some potential. However, evidently the writer was a 10 year old who has never been out of the house. Virtually no one's actions in the film ring true. There is a lot of law involved, and none of it is even CLOSE to being right. Situations that the writer and director hoped would be zany and funny are just contrived and awkward.
Characters who are meant to be funny caricatures are just annoying. Bill Engvall is completely wasted. Eric Roberts is tragically miscast as a gay hotel reviewer. Juliana Paes seems uncomfortable and insincere in most of her scenes. Julia Duffy is underused.
This film is a waste of everyone's time.
