Storyline

Eddy and Stuart share two-thirds of a dormitory suite. Due to bureaucratic error, a woman named Alex is added to their room. At first, relations among the three are tense. Soon, however, Alex falls for Eddy, and Stuart lusts after Alex. Eddy comes to realize not only that he's gay, but that he's attracted to Stuart. The three pledge not to act on any romantic (or lustful) feelings with each other, and become close friends . . . while bottling up a lot of sexual tension. Written by James Meek <james@oz.net>

Trivia

Further cementing its place in time as a product of Generation X culture, Threesome was released in theaters on April 8, 1994, the same day it was announced Kurt Cobain had been found dead. See more »

Goofs

Eddie remarks that the following semester, he got a single - a room all to himself. He says this right before pushing the gnome out of the window and you can see (from the inside) it is indeed a different, smaller room than the one they were all sharing. But when viewed from outside, it can clearly be seen that he is in the same room from which he and Alex were throwing water balloons at Stuart. (Also director Andrew Fleming's cameo at the beginning of the movie of him yelling down to Eddy from a window is again that very same room.) See more »

Quotes

Alex: You have the hots for me, I have the hots for him, and sooner or later he's gonna have the hots for you.
Eddie: Sounds pretty hot to me.

Less exploitation, more reflection
22 March 1999 | by PhroggySee all my reviews

Now that movieland seems to avoid anything that might feature just a touch of intelligence, this movie follows the opposite formula : less exploitation, more reflexion. It is funny, understanding, believable, exploring what, for some, would be dark sides of friendship, love and sex, but in a light and amiable way. The I-word strikes again in its deep sensitivity for what human relationships are like and, most of all, there is no morality tacked on at the end. In a different way, it reminded me of the superb French movie "Le péril jeune", which dwelt on a bunch of adolescents at the end of the sixties. Check it out .
