After Izzy Goldkiss plunges to his death from the roof of the Million Dollar Hotel - a Los Angeles dive inhabited by losers and misfits - Detective Skinner (Mel Gibson) is called in to investigate his death. His guide to the eccentric residents is the childlike young man Tom Tom (Jeremy Davies), whose fellow oddballs include Izzy's artist room-mate Geronimo (Jimmy Smits), alcoholic Shorty (Bud Cort), drug addict Vivien (Amanda Plummer) and the reclusive Eloise (Milla Jovovich). While Eloise and Tom Tom embark on a chaste romance and Skinner bugs everyone's room, the other residents begin hatching their own theories regarding Izzy's death.
Many were iffy about Wim Wenders' Faraway, So Close (available on video) and The End of Violence (also available on video), but those films have a lot going for them. The Million Dollar Hotel is the director's true "disasterpiece". The story, co-authored by U2's Bono, is fit only for Bonio dog biscuits, and lead-performer Jeremy Davies is as annoying as anyone ever has been on screen. Spiky-haired semi-cracked Tom-Tom (Davies) takes a running jump off the top of the eponymous refuge for Los Angeles deadbeats, then flashes back to the aftermath of the last fatal fall from the hotel, taken by his junkie friend (played by Tim Roth in a climactic flashback). The hotel is shaken up by the arrival of FBI Special Agent Detective Skinner (Mel Gibson), a maniac in a back-brace who turns out to have had a functional third arm amputated. Other resident weirdoes include saintly slut and bibliophile Milla Jovovich, bogus-Indian artist Jimmy Smits, mad hooker Amanda Plummer and bogus Liverpudlian Peter Stormare (who claims to be a lost Beatle). Just when you think it can't get worse, Julian Sands shows up. Ugly, hectoring and trite. --Kim NewmanSee all Product Description
If you don't pay attention from the outset, this film will have your scratching your head. That's not a bad thing as it is easy to follow if you do concentrate. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Sean Bradley
Quite a strange disjointed movie. Not really worth taking the time to watch. Tim Roth (uncredited - filled in at the last minute when someone pulled out) was the only redeeming... Read morePublished on 8 May 2013 by Marg B
I'm normally a big fan of Wim Wenders - "Wings of Desire" is one of my favourite films. However...

This has to be a contender for one of the worst films ever. It is just a vanity project by U2 singer Bono, based on an idea he had while filming the video to 'Where The Streets... Read morePublished on 11 Oct. 2009 by Acritical
Probably the most boring and uninspiring film i've watched. It's not often i'm glad when they end but i was with this one.
Don't waste your time & money on this one.
I watched this movie on a satelite channel when abroad, and there was nothing else to watch, but I loved it! Read morePublished on 8 May 2009 by C. Dewitt
This film was soooo boring. It did not hold my attention.Almost all of the characters were crazy and talked crazy, and unless you are crazy you wouldn't be able to follow it. Read morePublished on 28 Aug. 2008 by D. Preece
