Mediocre quickie, with hardcore elements
11 May 2010 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

Reflecting the trailblazing success of MONA, this mainly softcore sex film boasts a couple of minutes of hardcore action, making it unusual for the early 1970/71 time frame. Apart from that it has little to offer.

Quite haphazardly made (and rendered even worse by the choppy, scratchy/truncated print that survived for current DVD transfer), WEEKEND has a flimsy premise of two guys anxious to get away for a weekend of carousing, pretending to be attending a convention. The wives insist on tagging along, so all four head to a hot sheets motel. From here on in, one longs for the innocent (and entertaining) days of Laurel & Hardy, who practically invented this plot device.

Early on it becomes clear that the filmmakers are disinterested in the proceedings, as our hero asks his pal a simple question about his new sports jacket, but unable to handle improvised dialog, the guy stammers some nonsense instead of making up banter. Of course this flub remains in the final edit.

Any semblance of story believability falls apart at the hotel, as the wives go one way and the husbands another, finding willing partners for sex acts to fill out the running time. Kathy Hilton is the loveliest cast member, showing off her wares in a nice shower scene. She and wifey friend get it on with a lifeguard stud in a hardcore threesome that is surprising only because most of the action is the formula simulated sex that was mandatory in the softcore era.

Cast overlaps with the strictly softcore BULLS MARKET, featured on the same SWV double feature. Why one film is soft and the other shot hard is mysterious but perhaps just a case of timing: the wave of change (and Gresham's inevitable law) was in the air with the end of the Swinging Sixties.
