James plays one of the guests - victims of radioactive fishes, served in the hotel.
Plot: Richie and Eddie are the incompetent proprietors of possibly the worst hotel in the world who spend most of their time beating each other round the head with a frying pan, insulting and spying on the guests. The chef is a drunken illegal immigrant who has eaten all the food. The waiter’s been readmitted to the psychiatric hospital. The view is not quite what is should be, right next to a nuclear power plant. Where else would Gina Carbornara, the famous and beautiful movie star, choose to hide away after jilting renowned playboy ex-racing driver, Gino Bolognese? The Nice family checks in, as well as a young newlywed couple. What are the proprietors to feed their guest? Luckily a fishy windfall is incinerated for the guest’s dinner. When the guests show signs of savage indigestion is when Eddie hears that a leak from the nuclear power plant has poisoned the bay’s fish. It’s full of mindless infantile humour and hysterically funny violence.
Trivia & Facts:
- Budget £3.5m
- This was Simon Pegg’s (Mr. Nice) first feature film appearance
- Sophia Myles played a saucy wood nymph
- Mayall and Edmondson were reportedly in their element on set, enjoying the fact that for once, the special effects department could keep up with their imaginations. The greatest challenge was mastering the art of the Vomitrom, a machine which needs no explanation.
- In this movie Vincent Cassel plays a man about to marry "the most famous Italian movie actress in the world". In reality, Cassel is married to Monica Bellucci, arguably the most famous Italian movie actress in the world.
Film Location: Weston Manor in Totland, The Isle of Wight
Quotes from the film:
Eddie Elizabeth Ndingombaba: Chef's hurt himself.
Richard Twat: How badly?
Eddie Elizabeth Ndingombaba: Indescribably badly. He hit his head on a frying pan seventeen times.
Eileen Kastner-Delago (two-time Oscar winner for special effects/makeup for Jurassic Park and Terminator 2): It's a lot of fun and it's so different from what I'm used to, because it's very cosy and personal. But it still has a lot of effects, many more than a normal film, because it's like Tom & Jerry. It's fun for us, it's playing, we can take and use different things and let our fantasies go. It's so outrageous and funny, you can really go overboard.
While possibly the stupidest, most tasteless, and violent slapstick comedy ever made, Guest House is also a very funny one --- IMDb review
Guesthouse Paradiso is as deep and complex as a puddle of vomit but has a high content of laughs, wince-making fight scenes and stunts. Ignore the thin plot and concentrate on Mayall and Edmondson as they have a laugh and try not to injure each other too seriously --- IMDb review
