Nice idea But poor followthrough
7 October 2000 | by arronbSee all my reviews

I must admit i bought Motel Blue because of Solei-Moon Frye[punky brewster]but was actually caught up in the great story, but like my fellow user commented earlier there were great elements in the story that were not utilized,half hazard acting and numerous plot holes,threads were opened in the plot and then slammed shut.leaving you wondering why they were brought up in the first place.But Solei's performance was Great she alone gets 6 stars.
