  • Summary: In this sexy, surprising romance, a man and a woman meet each other in a hotel while they are both traveling on business. Flirtation leads to a feverish night of sex that both find hard to forget. Although she’s married, and he has a girlfriend, their intense attraction turns a seemingly casual one-night stand into a continual series of passionate hotel trysts, uniting them in a profound and unconventional relationship. Unfolding as a collage of moments—some sexy, some innocent, some profound, some silly—-28 Hotel Rooms is an intimate portrait of an affair in which two people wrestle with the intoxication of sex and the confusion of loving more than one person.

    In its own small way, by documenting the petty panic of two people who want to be together but are otherwise entangled, 28 Hotel Rooms is often masterful.

    Despite the familiar setup, this is no "Same Time, Next Year," what with its hot-sheets trysts, full-frontal flashes and frank language. But the brief - sometimes very brief - encounters glimpsed here between the film's leads and sole characters (billed only as "Man" and "Woman") are inventive and telling.

    Messina and Ireland thrive under that gaze, and dismaying affectations aside-the characters go needlessly unnamed - the movie articulates the enduring allure of a love defined, and heightened, by restrictions.

    Lacking much dramatic or intellectual stimulation, it's ultimately a limp effort.

    While Messina and Ireland are fine company, writer-director Matt Ross' conceit tires you out.

    Not showing us every aspect of their lives is a fine, even novel, approach, but merely telling us about them instead feels like a fruitless middle ground.

    You wonder if Hollywood is trying to make a point: sex is joyless, and best experienced by recognizable, and recognizably obnoxious people.

    While watching for the first time and not knowing anything about it, this film delivers a frank and unusual introspection of people as lovers wishing they had met 'first' and how to deal with the immediate enjoyment of sex and being together, and any long term solution. How does one 'love someone else'? Expand
