Product Description

Director Rob Williams (Back Soon) serves up a shaken and stirred cocktail of sexual intrigue, humor and drama in his latest about an unlikely group of friends and lovers. Long-term couple Simon and Jason, along with Cooper and his boytoy du jour, meets annually for a three-day getaway. Looking to spice up the tradition, they add a twist - each invites one attractive, single friend to their mountain retreat. Soon a frisky former college roommate, an often naked yoga instructor, Simon's bashful co-worker and a high-priced rent boy arrive to stir things up. From bed-hopping to breakups this is 72 hours they'll never forget.

3.0 out of 5 stars Give it a go! 6 Feb 2010
Format:DVD
This is an interesting movie if you are into evolving relationships. As such, the story seems a little 'thin' at times, possibly because there are so many relationships forming and/or breaking up. Nonetheless, it is beautifully filmed in stunning surroundings with an ample supply of cute guys. Worth a look.
Brian Hunt.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful cinema 2 May 2010
Format:DVD
Even if you can get past the terrible quality of the lighting, sound, makeup, and wardrobe, there's still worse to come.

The acting is superficial and the relationships unbelievable.

Seriously, don't bother. Cinema this sloppy makes me mad.

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT "Love! Valour! Compassion!" 13 April 2010
Format:DVD
Well I'm glad I rented this film and didn't waste Money on buying it!!!

In the first 10 minutes of the film, one of the gathered men at this 3 Day weekend getaway says the grouping reminds him of a film, and another character mentions 'Love! Valour! Compassion!' They go on to rip apart gay cinema of the past, and bitch about the aforementioned film and it's representation of Gay Men.

I think, Writer/ Director Rob Williams created this film to be the antithesis of films like 'Love! Valour! Comapssion!' but it fails on every count. The relationships are stilted and unbelievable, the acting complete tosh (with the exception of 'Mac', the only highlight and comic relief in the film) and the storylines are long and laboured.

I would avoid this film unless you have seen every other film in the store and instead re-rent or buy 'Love! Valour! Compassion!'

1.0 out of 5 stars Never watched anything so daft! 18 Mar 2010
By Bart
Format:DVD
'Three Day Weekend' really takes the biscuit. It's like a bad reality-tv show. Nine, not too bright superstuds in a remote mansion spend a weekend mesmerising about relationships, love and sex. The group certainly put their money where their mouths are, where the latter is concerned. They swopped partners like they were playing pass the parcel. Nothing wrong with that, had the acting not been stodgy and rigid, and the characters not been potrayed as wooden dummies. The only bloke standing out was the one teaming up with the yoga-freak. I don't recall his name. I don't recall any name, for that matter. I still don't know who's who, due to badly connected storylines. TDW's plots meandered through a muddy field of anxiety, (false) hopes and sexual (un)fulfillment. The concept of delectible geezers, shacked up together in the middle of nowhere, had been worked out much more absorbing in 'Boyfriends', its British counterpart. Watching TDW, one has to make do with some assorted masculine acting wimps, pretending to be genuine and profound, while in fact they're superficial and hackneyed. The computer generated score did nothing to eleviate matters. It made it hit rock bottom!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun but predictable 10 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Quite a fun little film, but with little in the way of depth of character or plot. Worth a watch on a quiet evening, but don't expect anything special. Possibly the worst "alternative ending" I've ever seen.
