I liked the fact that they showed the realistic side of an affair...both the good and the bad. I also liked how they showed their interactions progress from one night stand to an actual relationship. Lots flof steamy sex scenes, however, it doesnt take away from the film. Chris Messina is hot :)

"28 Hotel Rooms", a Matt Ross film starring Marin Ireland and Chris Messina, starts with a "chocolate explosion" slice of sex in a hotel room.
The sex is heated, nameless, youthful, all sweat and raw nakedness.
And then there's another hotel room, then another, and another, and more after that.
Each room has a different number, as they meet in different places, one being a novelist, the other a rising businesswoman.
I've played with the notion that the room numbers MEAN something, but I'm probably wrong.
Three movies came to mind as I watched this seductive entrancing movie.
"Same Time, Next Year", "When Harry Met Sally", and "9 Songs".
"Sally" because it follows the same pattern of watching an evolving relationship through the passing years.
"Same Time" for basically the same reason, as it comes closest to that 1978 film starring Alan Alda and Ellen Burstyn.
"9 Songs" because of the erotic sexual nature of what is basically a series of trysts, except "28" evolves into more than just a summer sexual fling.
Basically, "28" is a more sophisticated and steamy "Same Time", adding a 21st century graphic sexuality which is becoming more commonplace in film (and TV) in the past decade.
One thing kept me from giving it 5 stars.
I prefer movies...especially GREAT movies....to have endings that TELL me what's going to happen next, even if there's no sequel to SHOW me those changes.
"28 Hotel Rooms" last scene DOES try to give us something to hang on to.....as it does the two characters in the movie.
Then it ends.
And I just don't KNOW if these two lives will meet again.....in the 29th hotel room.

O.K., I admit it, Chris Messina is one of my favorite actors. In this film, he also executive produces (whatever that means). In any event, what a story--I kept thinking this is so "French," a couple, one married, one not and they carry-on a relationship (he finally marries) which has something, they both don't know what, that endures for years--French, right? It is a bit of a role reversal in that the male (Messina), towards the end, wants more and the female is content (even with a child--his child?) to keep things as they are--yet, it isn't just the great sex they have, it is more layered than that--and this is where it may depart from the French formula. In France, we expect that the extramarital relationship is mostly cultural, a rite of passage, etc. In this film, the relationship becomes more--a lot more. Watching these two actors is fascinating. For the most part, their hotel meetings are almost always eagerly awaited, fun, flirty, improvised. And while there are some meltdowns--they cannot end it. There doesn't seem to be words or a category for what it is they have and while they indeed reflect and struggle with the ethics of it, trying to decide if it should continue, they never quite resolve or do they? There's some good acting here, e.g., Messina is raw, powerful, frustrated, angry when he discovers her husband is with her at one of their hotel meetings. She, on the other hand, is cool, calculated, measured. Good performances. Good story. Worth the time.

The taboo of infidelity is so wrong, but it is kind of fun to watch. Who doesn't miss the rush of a new romance? I found the scenes from one hotel room to another to be a bit tedious and claustraphobic, but I think that was the intent. The relationship was interesting in that as deluded these two characters are, their relationship could never withstand the light of day.

Don't read any further if you haven't seen it yet!!!!

For those of you that have, there is a scene where the two characters have words that for me would be a deal breaker, game over. I'm wondering if anyone else feels this way?

The initial casual chance meeting of two marrieds is not believable. However, the developing difficult, passionate relationship pulls you in. This film was difficult to watch, but compelling to the end.

28 Hotel Rooms is a sleek drama about a writer and businesswoman having an affair through out their travels in the United states in a myriad of hotel rooms. The film is put together much like an affair; not many details of the characters are revealed (would you tell your mistress everything about your life? I sure wouldn't...) and the overall mystery adds to the steamy scenes through out the different hotel rooms. The two characters get thrown into an on-the-road relationship that grabs your compassion despite being an affair. Not many dramas like this one out.

Matt Ross' first feature film, 28 HOTEL ROOMS, follows a novelist and an accountant that turn a one-night hotel fling into a string of adulterous meetings. The audience acts as a voyeur to 28 various hotel stays and sees the relationship that develops between the two. The scenes are intimate and the dialogue feels realistic and natural. Both actors give strong performances and the overall design of the film is polished and provocative. Highly recommended!
