Air Force One is forced to land in a small English village, and the President secretly decamps to a country club hotel. It is soon attacked by a gang of international terrorists led by Ziegler, who holds the President ransom for billions of dollars. The terrorists want the code to his computer, which will allow them to unleash nuclear weapons wherever they choose, but the President refuses to give them the password. It takes the efforts of the hapless hotel manager, Hilton Grilfoyle, and his assistant, Ben Carter to overcome the terrorists using what wits they can muster between them.

A Real Find
1 December 2003 | by quixoticrogerSee all my reviews

If there was ever a case for Television Movies over Cinema, then this is it. In the style of Naked Gun and Airplane, and with that oh so wonderful British wit mixed in, Hotel! manages to triumph over it's influence as a fantastically daft and hilariously funny movie. The cast is great, Paul McGann showing his versatility as an actor, and Bradley Walsh as funny as always (which is fairly funny). Also, an interesting sidenote is an uncredited cameo by Peter Sallis as the voice on the radio. If you like your comedy funny, then this is the one for you. Just don't ask me where you can find it, I've been waiting for a repeat on TV or a DVD release for ages.
