An Inferior "Bikini Movie"
9 December 2016 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

"Samantha Vance" (J. J. North) and her half-brother "Remote" (Tim Lovestedt) work at a diner in Palmdale, California with no real opportunities for upward mobility available to them. But that all changes one day when Samantha gets notified that she has just inherited a hotel from her long-lost father. Although the property in question is extremely rundown, Samantha decides to keep it even though the wealthy family who owns the hotel across the street are determined to buy it in order to enhance their own profit margins. And while Remote and their mutual friend "Sty" (Kareem Elseify) are at first skeptical of her decision not to sell the hotel, they decide to stay and help her renovate it all the same. Unfortunately, even after they fix it up nobody comes. This results in Remote and Sty throwing one last party before they evacuate the premises and that's when they come upon a brilliant idea that attracts male customers in droves. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that there really wasn't anything in this film that caused it to stand out from other movies of this type-and even then what similarities it shared were, for the most part, inferior. The humor was almost non-existent, the plot and script were extremely basic and the acting could have used significant improvement. In short, other than a semi-clothed J. J. North and Julie Strain (as "Raquel") there probably isn't anything worthwhile about this movie at all. Because of that I have rated this film accordingly. Below average.
