Has anyone else seen the independent film on Netflix called 28 Hotel Rooms???

The premise of the movie is that a couple has a ONS (she starts off engaged then married and he has a girlfriend and later marries) and then they continue their affair in multiple hotels and room numbers. It's basically a two actor movie with a lot of dialogue and shows the wayward side of this things..

Of course, the couple remain in affair fog throughout the entire movie - and they do fall in luv! Ugh!!

Warning - I would not recommend this movie to any newbies out there - it's not for the faint hearted...that's for sure! My H didn't have this type of affair and it even triggered me!

Just wanted to get feedback from anyone out there who saw this movie....

No will not see this. We have made a pledge to each other that we will not see movies that have anything to do with A's. We have also gone so far as to not watch movies were casual sex is a main topic. We never saw friends with benefits.

We figured if more people decline to watch them that Hollywood may get a clue that not everyone likes this. And even if they don't we still are protecting our marriage from these kinds of thoughts.

I haven't seen this movie but it sounds like a very old movie called Same Time Next Year...I think. Exact same premise...married people who meet their affair partners the same weekend every year for 30 years. I actually used to like that movie. Not so much anymore.

Yes, I unfortunately came across this movie on cable one day. Horrible premise. Horrible characters. I remember wondering "Who thought making this movie was a good idea?"

I would not watch this movie.
If more people say NO to these types of movies they will stop making them. If only...

I just watched it this past weekend on The Movie Network. As with most movies dealing with adultery from the cheaters' perspective, the viewer is meant to adopt feelings for these characters and actually hope they get together and live happily ever after. There's a reason we never see the BS. Yuck!!! I actually prefer the movie Unfaithful with Diane Lane because at least with that one, she gets her comeuppance for the affair and you're able to decide how the movie should end (I love where they leave you with multiple possible outcomes and you can apply your own values). Movies and television tend to portray societal norms and values at the time. And society is really f*&^&ed since infidelity appears to be accepted and even celebrated. God help us!

Teach8 - I too loved the movie "same Time Next Year". Loved the actors, and they made the whole thing seem almost OK.

Now, I try to remember how I could dismiss the cheating enough to enjoy the movie.

Same thing with "Dr. Zhivago" (sp?) and so many others.

Back then, cheating was "out there", not a part of my life. Not even anyone's life I knew. It was something I heard about on TV.

I like the idea of agreeing with husband not to watch A related movies. But, in all seriousness - What is left?

I do the opposite. I watch them, and if my husband is in the room, I talk about what a shit that person is to behave that way. I talk about what a "pervert" Weiner (the politician) is. (No political statement intended.)

I know that is not productive or helpful.

I don't know why I do it.

Sorry - t/j I know.
