* HypocriticalHumor: Richie is always on the case of couples who come to his hotel hoping to have a sexual escapade. He himself is a total deviant, to the point where he steals a guest's underwear and fondles Eddie's penis.



* MeanBrit: Richie is even worse than [[Series/FawltyTowers Basil Fawlty]] in that a lot of what he does would make the United Nations wet their pants.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: To ''Series/FawltyTowers''. There's a nasty hotel manager, his long-suffering sidekick, a dodgy sign out front, a dotty old guest who drinks too much, an alcoholic chef who destroys most of the food, at least two couples with active sex lives and an attractive foreigner who gets sexually assaulted. Take away any sense of class or decorum and you've got this movie in a nutshell.



* YouCheatingHeart: It's mentioned that Mr. Johnson (Bill Nighy) is on holiday with his mistress. He's still far from the worst person in this film.

* ButtMonkey: Eddie exists only to get abused by Richie.



* EstablishingCharacterMoment: The film opens up with Richie muttering "You bastards" in his sleep. Eddie is shown sleeping on a motorcycle that's careening down a highway.

* DirectedByCastMember: Adrian Edmondson. Originally both he and Rik Mayall were going to direct, but Rik was still recovering from his quad bike accident.



* FakeNationality: French actors Hélène Mahieu and Vincent Cassell play Italians Gina and Gino.



* StarDerailingRole: Because of the box office failure of this film, Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson haven't done any other movies. Also, apart from the last two Bottom Live shows, they haven't done that much. Also, what ever happened to Hélène Mahieu who plays Gina?
** Averted with Simon Pegg and Vincent Cassel.
