Storyline

Lillian is a 21-year-old drifter engaged to a philandering loser and locked in her room with a strange man. She lives next to a failed violinist who won't stop playing his instrument. He lives next to a New Age fanatic who's into colonic treatments; she lives next to two drug addicts who mess with the wrong prostitutes and end up answering to a pimp named Mr. Tangerine. In a barrage of head-spinning vignettes, we are sucked into a surreal motel fantasy-land where society's riffraff dwell in that awkward place between freedom and desperation. Written by Anonymous

weak
5 July 2003 | by asianightlifeSee all my reviews

To the best of my knowledge this film never opened in the US and there's reason for that, it pretty weak. No Vacancy is a screwball comedy with the emphasis on screwball and very little comedy. The gags are tired and stupid with most of the characters cardboard, despite an attempt to develop them. Christina Ricci does her usual professional job but how she got dragged into this mess is a mystery. It's the kind of film where all the characters start chasing each other around (Christina is spared this) in a ridiculous attempt to build up some momentum. Sad.
