If you liked Monty Python, (if you’re old enough to know Monty Python), you will like The Grand Budapest Hotel.
The movie tells of the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel before World War II. He befriends a lobby boy who works for him, Zero Moustafa.
I honestly don’t know what to think of this movie, and how to write about it. It was basically worthless, a lot of money wasted on a film that really didn’t deserve to be made, about a story that’s not worth telling.
Yet, I laughed out loud at times, and chuckled often. I actually enjoyed this nonsense.
And look at the cast: Ralph Fiennes, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, the list goes on. What possessed all these great actors to take parts in this movie?
Probably just to have fun. Like I did watching it.
