Guest House Paradiso (1999)
I expected a lot more
"Guest house Paradiso" is not a good movie. It's not terrible, neither, as long as you enjoy the Bottom series. But the credits leave you thinking "What was wrong this one?". Basically it is because the funny stuff doesn't represent a third of the running time (if that).
What we get here is a weak plot line: Richie T-w-a-t (spelled Thwait) and Eddie Ndingombaba (surnames changed for copyright reasons) run a ruinous hotel near a Nuclear power plant. There are lots of average jokes (only a few good ones) and some real nasty scenes that almost made me want to puke. The supporting actors were great, though (Simon Pegg and Vincent Cassel).
All in all, I'd say this movie could have been a fairly amusing 29' Bottom episode, had all the unfunny scenes been deleted. But for a 80' film, I think it's only worth watching for hardcore Rik and Ade fans.
