Storyline

In its heyday, the Lorraine Hotel saw its fair share of guests, laughter and good times. But now that the aging inn is well past its prime, owner Lillian Garber must decide whether to repair the Catskills landmark - or sell to developers. As Lillian and her zany staff enjoy what may be the Lorraine's best- and last-summer season, they realize that not even a wrecking ball can demolish life's sweetest treasures. A slice-of-life comedy about old friendships, new romance, and letting go of the past. Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

Goofs

During the scene where the kids are all sitting in the bedroom talking, when Molly describes a "boondocker", Bobby sets the end of a "cheese doodle" snack aflame. The second time you see him holding the snack, the amount that has burned has actually decreased, and the flame is smaller. He would have had to pick up and light a second piece, but you see no indication of this. See more »

THE DIRECTION LACKS FOCUS
13 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

The final season of a Catskill hotel that has seen its best days provides the framework for this film, featuring Maureen Stapleton as the owner who must decide whether or not to sell, Trini Alvarado as her granddaughter who wishes to soldier on as a partner, and a raft of others performing as employees of the hotel whose activities comprise numerous subplots. The work is highly episodic, but most scenes are permitted to pass with virtually no development, leading to a rather downbeat feeling in the viewer, with the significance of reminiscence for the players being largely unappreciated; an entirely unfocussed exercise.
