Movie Info

This macabre, whimsical, erotic, dark, seriocomic film is a complex tale about an eccentric family and the psychological and emotional maelstroms that follow them around from New England to New York to Vienna, where the Hotel New Hampshire is located. Writer-director Tony Richardson worked from the convoluted novel by John Irving that covers most universally saleable topics -- homosexuality, death, incest, abandonment, Nazis, masochism, terrorists, rape, mental instability, and anarchists.

Erratic failure of comedy featuring Jodie Foster, Beau Bridges.

Celebrates one family's resiliency in facing the accidents and perplexities of sex, violence and death.

Too deliberately quirky, but always watchable.

Veers between brilliance and banality with an almost manic enthusiasm.

So-so John Irving adaptation suffers from cinematic schizophrenia.

Audience Reviews for The Hotel New Hampshire

An extremely weird story, about a lot of weird things that happen to this family, and they just keep getting weirder. I wasn't sure if this movie was weird in a good way or a bad way, so I'll just say it's okay.

This writer-director Tony Richardson's film suffers from a frenetic pace designed to cram each idiosyncratic detail of the source material onto celluloid.
Incest, rape, suicide, terrorism and sexuality issues populate the novel, but its author handles these and other cultural touchstone issues with weight and dignity.
If time has cast a harsh light on the filmmaking decisions here, however, it has only made more scintillating the youthful performances in the film; Natassja Kinski (25), Jodie Foster (21), Rob Lowe (20) and Seth Green (10) each forecasts long, bright burning careers, with the stately Beau Bridges holding together the film's disparate tendrils.

An engaging family-run-hotel film. Based on a great John Irvine novel. The characters are interesting and likeable. The situations are entertaining. Enjoyable viewing.
