Whoopi Goldberg stars in this smart and sassy comedy as ex-diva Mavis Rae, a cigarette-smoking, alcohol drinking, menopausal and especially opinionated hotelier. The former one-hit wonder runs her own small hotel in New York City –and does it any way she wants. Fifteen years earlier, Mavis had one huge, spectacular hit song -”Don’t Hide Love”. Quickly realizing that her initial success was a fluke, she parlayed her finances from that hit into purchasing the Lamont Hotel in Manhattan. Mavis operates the hotel on her charm and wit while assisted.
