In Detroit, a lonely pop culture geek marries a call girl, steals cocaine from her pimp, and tries to sell it in Hollywood. Meanwhile, the owners of the cocaine, the Mob, track them down in an attempt to reclaim it.
This movie features the collaborative directorial efforts of four new filmmakers, each of whom directs a segment of this comedy. It's New Year's Eve at the Mon Signor Hotel, a former grand old Hollywood hotel, now fallen upon hard times. Often using physical comedy and sight gags, this movie chronicles the slapstick misadventures of Ted, the Bellhop. He's on his first night on the job, when he's asked to help out a coven of witches in the Honeymoon Suite. Things only get worse when he delivers ice to the wrong room and ends up in a domestic argument at a really bad time. Next, he foolishly agrees to watch a gangster's kids for him while he's away. Finally, he finishes off the night refereeing a ghastly wager.Written by

The hotel's vintage telephone switchboard adds an element of comic chaos, but it is not consistently used. Ted answers calls to the front desk by pushing cables into jacks, but Sarah (the little girl in "The Misbehavers") is able to dial another room directly. Also, when the partying guys call and don't know what room they are in, Ted should be able to get the room number right off the switchboard. See more »
Sam the Bellhop:
We used to have Fifty on staff here. Fifty! I'm the only one left. It all comes down to one schmuck, me. The night shift bellhop. What the hell is that, a bellhop? Huh, what is that? You know where the name comes from? Huh? From someone stupid! Some schmuck rings and bell and ya hop, you hop front and center.

Quite different, with an unexpected story made up between four consecutive narratives. An incredible welcome of the new year with absolutely no predictable ending. Persons which appear on the screen surprise us one after another with their reputation and professionalism.
Starting from the topic of the flesh immediately grabs our interest by asking us to assume more vulgar development. Then stuns with a familiar image in an atypical role and carries us into the world of children garnished with a dead hooker. And the end is even more unexpected, especially if you do not know anything about the movie. The action takes us to the top floor of the hotel room where we find him. This time, there is almost no blood, though the focus again is on death and pain.
Maybe a little overstated but still I use it to make advertising of the place where I found out about it (https://www.facebook.com/sofest?fref=nf). I was impressed by the level of knowledge and headlines of movies that are shared there and decided to do an experiment whose result was quite successful. That is why I am moving on! You?
