Best Western (3 stars)

Rich Hall's motel life

comments

This article is from 2007.

Although listed under comedy and written/directed by Fringe favourite, comedian Rich Hall, Best Western is far from a light-hearted romp. It looks at two interlinking families in a middle America Motel, where the owners are being forced to sell and the only guest is dealing with his own troubled relatives. Both families arrive at a crossroads in their stagnant lives. Unfortunately, those lives make stagnant viewing at times, with often uninspired direction in an otherwise gently appealing story.
