!don't do it!
12 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

This movie, as was to be expected isn't really great. Even though it's just another comedy focussing on sex jokes it doesn't even make it in that category.

I don't think it should be compared to American Pie, it's jokes just aren't funny, at all. It's full of homevideo shots of people getting slapped in the face etc. that have to do with the story. It didn't help that once the movie started with a montage of some of these clips 50% of the audience behind me started laughing hysterically. I don't think I've ever heard people laughing so hard. I'm seriously wondering if they were paid to be there.

They didn't make the experience more enjoyable though, although it did make me smile sometimes when ten people behind me were kicking the ground every time someone toppled over. It was really ridiculous.

Anyway, I didn't expect much out of 'The Long Weekend' and I viewed it the way it wants to be viewed, a simple sex comedy. But I still think it's not worth watching it. Or at least paying to go see it at the movies. Of course I saw it at a sneak preview so I can honestly say I didn't know what I was in for.

If you're gonna watch it, make sure you're extremely bored and don't have anything else to do, I guess it can be entertaining under those circumstances.
