The Long Weekend (2005)
Canada / English
"Two Brothers. One Weekend. No Shame.
"A comedy about two brothers, uptight Ed and playboy Cooper. Ed has a weekend to save his career, but Cooper has other plans for the weekend; to help his stressed out brother get lucky with the ladies.
Funny SEX Comedy
While the main drawing card of this movie seems to be the assortment of
raunchy sex gags and I'll admit they do make you laugh (I actually
laughed so hard at one point I spit out a mouth full of pop). But what
really helps this movie is the likability and earnestness of the two
guys. You can't help but sympathize with Ed and everyone's has a friend
who is something like the Cooper character.
The plot mainly deals with Cooper and Ed's "quest" for sex over one
long weekend. That is all it is, and all it was ever billed to be. And
it goes over great. I admit, I was not too excited about it at first
but now I am glad I saw it. If you don't like raunchy stories who
flaunt sex jokes shamelessly, and if you didn't like Porky's or Fast
Times at Ridgemont High, or American Pie don't go see it. Otherwise, go
see it and laugh your *ss off.
Any guy will appreciate The Long Weekend full tilt, and girls will
realize just what hoops guys jump through in order to get their
attention, let alone in their pants.
What added to The Long Weekend is that I liked both the characters. I
didn't know Chris Klein could act until I saw this film, this is the
first time he's stepped out of his usual character and I have to say he
steals the show. I was glad that they didn't make them the stereotype
one nice one sleazy Ed ain't perfect and Cooper isn't all bad. The
brothers have some genuine moments on the screen which adds to the film
as a whole.
Dude, go see this if you want to laugh...I saw this in Europe when is
it coming out in the States?!!
