Editorial Reviews

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Maybe a little close to home June 8, 2005
Format:DVD
This is an unabashed hyper-hormone, sexual-tension comedy filled to the brim with small truths and nostalgic college coming-of-age moments. If you didn't have friends like this in college (at least maybe a little) then you missed out.

This threesome is driven and largely controlled by one Lara Flynn Boyle, who is fantastic and energetic and believeable as the drama queen trying to get the gay guy while the straight guy pines away for her (and she gets to spurn his every advance.)

It isn't all about sex, although it underlies everything else; it is about friendship and support as you decide who you are and who you want to be. This is an almost embarrassingly accurate look at three dissimilar people who find companionship, fellowship, and support on their way to being, or becoming, "grown up."

The pace of this film is great, the editing and acting are good, and it's consistently funny. It makes you long for the time of food fights in the dining hall, throwing rotten food out the window, and all-night parties. It made me miss my college friends. If you're reading this, yes, this is about you.

Worth seeing whether you're in college or it's been awhile since you wore your cap and gown. Universal themes make this film pertinent to almost everyone. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not For Prudes December 25, 2004
By nina
Format:DVD
I bought the VHS in 1994, just got the DVD for Christmas in 2004. Threesome is nearly eleven years old but you won't be able to see that by watching it. It's just as much fun now as it was then. It's a movie like a fine wine...it won't age no matter how old it gets. But be warned. This film is not for prudes who can't see beyond the " sex talk ". Alex, Stu and Eddy do get down and dirty at times but sex is not the only element this film has to offer. Once you expand your mind and strip Threesome of all the sexual situations and complications you have a beautiful love story between three strangers who turn out to be best friends.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny and Poignant Look at College Life May 26, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Threesome (1994), despite some lapses into puerile humor, remains a thoughtful film about college life. While films like Reality Bites (1994) focus more on the trials of life after college, Threesome ventures into the lives of three students who meet during their third year of school. Eddy (Josh Charles), a transfer student, finds himself assigned to room with a likeable yet Neanderthal-esque, Stuart (Stephen Baldwin), whose primary focus in life includes cutting corners, drinking, and conquering hapless women. As a result of a bureaucratic error, Alex (Lara Flynn Boyle) finds herself assigned to the same suite as Eddy and Stuart. Initially, Alex avoids her two male neighbors until she realizes their friendship might be worth greater consideration.

Threesome is a drama/comedy which will appeal more to a Generation X audience that went to college during the late 80's through the 90's. The comedy in Threesome is quirky and irreverent, offering an honest portrayal of young adults as they explore their own academic concerns while managing the tricky balance of dorm life, the latter an easier pastime given the freedoms that come with living away from home. Fleming allows us to see how three disparate characters could be drawn into a kind of physical attraction resembling something out of Sartre's No Exit. Yet, he allows each of them enough character development so that their complexities surface with relative ease as they come to know one another better.

Eventually, Threesome is about friendship and not sex. The moral in Threesome is that sex can complicate friendships and when all of them are faced with a difficult situation towards the end of the film, it is no surprise that the dilemma which leaves them reeling is enough to sever the closeness which they shared at the outset.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wild Hedonistic Playful College Adventures July 21, 2003
Format:DVD
A friend of mine owns this video and we watched it on a lazy Sunday night. I was loving it until it was almost over at which point she promptly turned it off. There were five minutes left but before I could complain she insisted that she refuses to see the end of the movie. She told me I could borrow the tape and watch it on my own time. Confused, I took the tape home and went to bed, thinking that it had been a very good movie. Later that week I went back and watched the last five minutes and I now understand why she insisted on turning it off. The ending is TERRIBLE. It's like the director made a great movie and then in the ending he felt guilty and decided that he had to throw some morals in. It ruined the movie. So watch this movie, enjoy it, think about all the wild hedonistic adventures you had in college, and then turn it off before it goes bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Threesome is a Sensitive Outlook on Sexual Frustration December 26, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
Threesome finds a creative and intelligent way to explore the sexual confusion of the 90s. The three characters appropriately represent the valid concerns of 20 somethings exploring identity and sexuality. Friendships and attractions lead to a realistic and entertaining story that people can actually relate to. The character, Alex, is a strong and interesting female protagonist, expressing her sexuality with a healthy and open perspective. One of the few films that don't make our generation out to be ignorant, thoughtless and completely self-absorbed. On the contrary, more consistent with actual conversations and behavior in college life of the 90s. Wonderful!
