Movie Reviews

The great outdoors ... and indoors as well.
Thomas A. Heald | Rapid City, SD USA | 10/28/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Just the right guy and just the wrong guy get found as "3 Day Weekend" takes a snapshot of men in various states of monogamy, marriage, momentary pleasure, and seperation.

The gorgeous "Weekend" gleefully admits that it is a thinly veiled homage to eight-gay-men-sitting-around-a-nice-house genre "The Boys in the Band" (1970) and "Love! Valour! Compassion!" (1997). But hey, fill a million dollar hunting lodge in SoCal with a 45-year-old muscle bear (Derek Long), a closeted 25-year-old self proclaimed "geek" (Chris Carlisle), and six male model types of various ages in between and you've got the makings of a party.

Take two couples -- one intergenerational, the other in an open relationship -- who take an annual weekend in the country and let them mix in their allegedly single friends for a change of pace. The secrets fly fast and furiously thanks to the invitation of Andre, a male hustler (Daniel Rhyder), that at least five of the guests already know. Buddhism translates to both a lust for life and an inability to button a shirt; turnabout becomes the most unfair play for a duo turned trio; the ambition to be paid to break hearts proves tempting; and with the exception of one or two characters who just don't seem to have any material whatsoever, Rob Williams' writing and direction soar. The assembled ensemble rises and shines. -- Thomas Heald,"

"This movie wasn't my cup of tea. I'm a huge gay movie watcher and unfortunatly, I bought this before seeing it first. The acting is in the same catagory as a basic (very basic) soap opera. It seems as if the director asked some of his neighbors or friends from the bar to act in this movie. It is decent for a rental if you're really, really, bored on a weeknight. Sorry guys, this just doesn't cut it in the list of good gay themed movies. Try again."
Not a bad way to spend a long weekend.

"I had read good reviews of the movie from here and other places and decided to take the chance and buy it. Am glad I did! I enjoyed the movie a lot. It deals with a number of different relationships in various stages. (You can read the other reviews to get more details of the plot). The script is pretty well written with dealing with the intracacies of the relationships, whether starting or ending. The acting is quite good too. They all do a good job of bringing realism to the characters. Plus the cinematgraphy is good too. Plus the house they're shooting in is great- would love to stay there with the boys too!

Definately a movie worth renting or buying.
Overall, a 4 out of 5

"I enjoyed this movie. The acting was pretty good, and the story was plausible, and one that many people can relate to, gay or straight. It's a movie I would watch again, and probably enjoy more the second time."
