Editorial Reviews

Eddy (Josh Charles) and Stuart (Stephen Baldwin) are curious about their new roommate. When a bureaucratic snafu lands budding actress Alex (Lara Flynn Boyle) into their laps, the situation becomes tense and uneasy. But when Alex falls for Eddy and Stuart falls for Alex, it leaves Eddy to admit that he has hidden desires of his own! Sensing a potential for disaster, the three agree not to act on any romantic feelings for each other. In antic fashion, they explore the complexity of friendships, relationships and sexuality, ultimately becoming more than roommates and much better than friends.

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 Can't happen in real life but still fun! June 22, 2002
Format:DVD
The chances of anything like this happening in real life are pretty slim, but since this is a movie, this is a minor point for me.
Eddy (the wonderful Josh Charles for 'Dead Poets Society' - I wonder why we don't see him in more movies) moves into the dorms - only to get a roommate from hell, who is his exact opposite. While Eddy is serious, clean, quiet and shy, Stuart (Stephen Baldwin) is a messy, girl chasing little boy. The manage to find a way to live together, when Alex (Lara Flynn Boyle) moves into the other room in the suite - since her college record says she's a guy, not a girl. Stuart is attracted to Alex, while she's attracted ot Eddy, which soon discovers that not only is he gay, but he's attracted to Stuart... Sensing that sex would make their life together tough, they vow to avoid having it with one another (even though they scare all other suitors), and become close friends - so close, this friendship excludes every one else... But, they break their promise and have sex, in unlikely forms, and the 'Threesome' eventually break up...
This movie is more than sex and sexual discovery - it's also about friendship and its boundries. As Eddy, our narator, sees it, the Threesome meant to him more than sex - he feels that he developed true friendship with Stuart and Alex. At the end of the movie, he wonders how people as close as they all were during that year in college can lose their connection with one another. In the alternate ending scene (which is included in the DVD with or without Andrew Fleming's commentary) we can see how people who were close as can be can't have a conversation without uncomfortable silences a couple of years later...
