In sweet 'n' sour comedy The Motel, 13-year-old Ernest Chin learns about ''weekly'' (poverty) and ''hourly'' (sex) while cleaning his family's motel. When puberty hits, he turns not to his Chinese mom (who makes stereotypical cracks like ''You did not win, you got honorable mention''), but to a hard-partying motel guest for older-brotherly advice. EXTRAS A making-of captures the endearing indie's pull-through camaraderie: propositioning extras in a supermarket, utilizing a generator during the 2003 blackout.
