A nice trip to the wine country...
13 April 2002 | by (Oslo, Norway) – See all my reviews

"A Weekend in the Country" isn't very funny for a comedy, it isn't very romantic either, for a romantic comedy. It is however NICE, a down-right pleasant trip to some very beautiful surroundings (the California wine district), and best of all: you get to spend it with some very nice people: Christine Lahti, Rita Rudner (who also scripted), Richard Lewis, Faith Ford, John Shea, and Dudley Moore giving a performance that seems somewhat poignant, considering this would be his last real on-screen movie-role. And to top it all off you get the added bonus of the great Jack Lemmon who gives it all some class.
