Storyline

One hot June day, three friends decide there is nothing they would like to do more than to get away from London. A boating holiday with lots of fresh air and exercise would be just the very thing, or so their doctors tell them. So, after debating the merits of hotel or camp beds and what to pack, they set off on their voyage - a trip up the Thames from Henley to Oxford - but very quickly find themselves ill-equipped for the trials of riverbank life. Written by Dabby

Trivia

Tom Stoppard had never read Jerome K. Jerome's famous novel when he was asked to adapt it for this TV movie. He claimed that this was actually a help, as "I didn't know which bits were supposed to be funny". See more »

Quotes

Jerome: Maidenhead itself is too snobby to be pleasant. It is the haunt of the river swell and his overdressed female companion. It is the town of showy hotels, patronised chiefly by dudes and ballet girls. It is the witch's kitchen from which go forth those demons of the river-steam-launches.

Three Men In A Boat on DVD in Aug 2009
30 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

This delightful and charming movie is wonderfully faithful to the book by Jerome K. Jerome, and is just as funny. I discovered it back in 1978, looking for other roles that Tim Curry had played, and this has become one of my favorite movies of all time. Gently humorous and full of beautiful scenery, the story of three young gentlemen going on a holiday down the Thames can't help but make one laugh.

Finally, this excellent adaptation is available on DVD in the UK (Region 2 DVD), but can be played on region-free DVD players in the US, or one a computer's DVD player if it's set temporarily to Region 2, or made region-free. I've seen it available at several UK retailers online.

I've been waiting since 1978 for a professional release of this delightful little film. :-) jfk
