The clothing department's floor requires renovation; rather than let the staff sit idle while the area is closed off, the management sends them on a paid holiday in Costa Plonka, a fictional city in Spain. Their hotel and its surroundings prove to be dismal, and the group tries to pass the time by acting on the crushes they have developed for one another in the workplace. This results in disaster, as multiple amorous notes reach the wrong recipients and everyone gets wrong ideas about who fancies whom. Meanwhile, Carlos, the hotel manager receives an unwelcome visit from an old acquaintance, Cesar Rodriguez, who is after Mrs. Slocombe after seeing her passport. He is also plotting a revolutionary uprising and wants to use the hotel as his base.

Steve S (au) wrote: This film ends up as an interesting picture of what happened to the Italian cinema once the late 80s and early 90s rolled around. There is pretty much nothing enjoyable about this film, but more something to look at to see how wrong things can go when trying to make a movie. This was a project that Umberto Lenzi was thrown some money and actors to make, and tried to make the best with what he had, but he had no intellectual investment in the project and everything seemed to go downhill from there. Italy enjoyed much success during the 70s and early 80s in making these kinds of horror films that got distributed around the world, so producers began handing out these sums of money for projects which they thought would have the same results, but it really just turned out to be an utter disaster, to the point where even Lenzi says so himself.

Matthew B (au) wrote: Okay let me just get this off my chest the action sense in the movie was like having a goat taking a shit on me it is that Bad I could Direct better action senses then this, the movie itself try to hard to pull of a great action flick but sadly fails on that, The movie lacks Originality and fun but the one thing that I like is Mickey Rourke was a fun villain and that's it really.

I am not a fan of a lot of CGI but it seems the way today. I miss the old make magic that made the creatures more real. The new addition of Johns father was a good and the part was played well. I would like to see a future movie with him in it. Riddick is the classic [email protected] with all the right components and I would play to see more if him in the future.
