1999: A British slapstick by comedy-duo Rik Mayall and Ade Edmundson - Richie and Eddie are in charge of the worst hotel in Britain, neighbouring a nuclear plant.

Released on: 05 December 1999 (UK) and shown in cinemas in many countries
Rik Mayall wrote the script of Guest House Paradiso right after filming Canterville Ghost with James D'Arcy, when he was recovering from a quad bike accident. In Canterville Ghost, Rik played the demented priest who was trying to exorcise the ghost.

Bill Nighy as Mr. Johnson. He was relatively unknown at the time of starring in this film. It wouldn't be until he appeared in 2003's Love Actually that he would shoot to international stardom. http://the-bottom.wikia.com/wiki/Mr_Johnson_%26_Ms_Hardy
