Review by Lance Scott (posted on 10-Apr-2008)

Zany off the wire comedy packed with an all star cast. The show starts our with the sun rising and the Commodores belting out the theme song Underground A-ces. The plot surrounds the Hotel with everything and anything that could happen in a hotel, happening. Melanie Griffiths looking as hot as ever, being persued by By Dirk Benedict. Also a wealthy Arab with his body guard played by the very funny Sid Haig who had to say very little but use his facial expressions to get the laughter going. The very Hot Audrey Landers who's getting married and a hot friend. It is in this very film that the name Fred Krueger was born as Frank Gorshwin's name in the show. Gorshwin and Orbach were terrific together with their Hotel reports,speculations and antics About 100 Horny Bowling balls made a special appearance attacking a lady removing her dress and not to mention the master of natural sound FX himself,(No Not Biz Markie) But Michael Winslow (some 12 years Pre-Police Academy) adding his sound effects making this show even funnier. All and all for a Comedy of this nature it had a huge romantic finish which made it totally unexpected for a comedy.
