FARCE. With the front entrance still blocked from the last mudslide, business has been a bit slow for the dilapidated Hotel Horace. But as luck would have it, the town of Swampy Corners suffers another major mudslide, this time blocking the main highway. And with the new detour running right past the front door of the hotel, the owner decides to spruce up the place with the help of two lazy teenagers, a half-baked cook, and a bellhop. But when a police fugitive, British world traveler, math teacher, and two high school students arrive at the hotel, the hotel staff soon find themselves buried in an avalanche of madness!
