Storyline

'Three's Company', the comedy centered on two attractive, young women who made the rent on their Santa Monica beach-side apartment by taking in a third roommate - a male forced to pretend he's gay to fool the landlords and the girls' parents. The series rocketed in the ratings as an instant hit - despite the outcry of critics and moralists - who objected to the double-entendres and quasi-sexual hijinks on the show. However, the true behind-the-scenes story of 'Three's Company' will expose a once idyllic workplace that deteriorated into a battleground beset by business dealings, contact disputes, cast rivalries, clashes between producers and network executives and finally, a round of cast replacements which hastened the demise of the show.

Threes Company
16 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie. Jud Tylor, Bret Anthony, and Melanie Moore were all amazing. I especially loved Jud Tylors performance. The whole show centered around Suzanne Somers, and Jud was Suzanne in all aspects. Showing the funny side of Crissy and the tough dramatic side of Suzanne Somers. All and all she was great. I wish the network would show this movie more often. They also could make a great t v series comeback with this cast. Hope to see a lot more of Jud Tylor in upcoming projects. Brian Dennehy is also one of my favorite actors too, his role suited him well and he did a good job. I thought the cast all complimented each other.
