O'Keefe scores again!
15 April 2008 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Dennis O'Keefe was surely the best farceur of the early 40's. The classics he made for Edward Small are delightful bedroom antics. This one, WEEKEND FOR THREE, actually predates the Small pictures and is perhaps Dennis' first great farce. It's a simple setup, with the scenario played out by a wonderful crew of comedy experts. O'Keefe, Phil Reed, Edward Everett Horton, Franklin Pangborn, Zasu Pitts and Marion Martin all shine doing their stuff. Lovely Jane Wyatt is perky and quick-witted. Roy Webb's score is a delightful departure from his usual brooding works - a very Steineresque comedy score with lots of stings. If this one comes around, sit back and have fun. Everyone on screen is having a ball!
