Product Description

Long-term couple Simon and Jason, along with daddy-ish Cooper and his boy du jour, escape to a mountain cabin for a three-day weekend away from their hectic city lives. Looking to spice up this long-standing tradition, they add a special twist to this years retreat - each of them must invite one attractive single friend to their mountain getaway. Arriving are a frisky former college roommate, a constantly naked yoga instructor, Jason's uptight co-worker and a high-priced rent boy who do indeed stir up the weekend. But this combination of new and old friends creates more tension than anyone ever anticipated. After 72 hours and multiple sexual couplings, new relationships form while others are cast onto shaky ground.


Lots of sex and drama! --HX Magazine

The plentiful sex scenes are tastefully done ... plenty of candor and nudity.

Wins big points for suggesting that there is indeed gay life after 40. --Village Voice

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't Bother Guys... June 23, 2009
This movie wasn't my cup of tea. I'm a huge gay movie watcher and unfortunatly, I bought this before seeing it first. The acting is in the same catagory as a basic (very basic) soap opera. It seems as if the director asked some of his neighbors or friends from the bar to act in this movie. It is decent for a rental if you're really, really, bored on a weeknight. Sorry guys, this just doesn't cut it in the list of good gay themed movies. Try again.

4.0 out of 5 stars The great outdoors ... and indoors as well. October 27, 2008
Just the right guy and just the wrong guy get found as "3 Day Weekend" takes a snapshot of men in various states of monogamy, marriage, momentary pleasure, and seperation.

The gorgeous "Weekend" gleefully admits that it is a thinly veiled homage to eight-gay-men-sitting-around-a-nice-house genre "The Boys in the Band" (1970) and "Love! Valour! Compassion!" (1997). But hey, fill a million dollar hunting lodge in SoCal with a 45-year-old muscle bear (Derek Long), a closeted 25-year-old self proclaimed "geek" (Chris Carlisle), and six male model types of various ages in between and you've got the makings of a party.

Take two couples -- one intergenerational, the other in an open relationship -- who take an annual weekend in the country and let them mix in their allegedly single friends for a change of pace. The secrets fly fast and furiously thanks to the invitation of Andre, a male hustler (Daniel Rhyder), that at least five of the guests already know. Buddhism translates to both a lust for life and an inability to button a shirt; turnabout becomes the most unfair play for a duo turned trio; the ambition to be paid to break hearts proves tempting; and with the exception of one or two characters who just don't seem to have any material whatsoever, Rob Williams' writing and direction soar. The assembled ensemble rises and shines. -- Thomas Heald,

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing ensemble March 13, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As the title suggests, the action takes place over a long weekend between eight men isolated in the woods at a rather remarkable cabin. The diversity of "types" within this ensemble of characters provides a wonderful array of attitudes as well as personalities and ages. This is one of the strongest ensembles of actors and scripting of personal interchanges I have seen since "Boys in the Band."

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 days i'd spend again April 18, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
not sure what it says about our culture that the man paid for sex is the least attractive in this movie, kind of reminded me of Robert Redford in Brubaker when he's the cutest one in a prison movie but he doesn't get raped. I think here, the characters seem a little stereotypical but less than in most gay movies and the main characters have a lot to do and many other characters to do it with. I think there might have been more emphasis on back stories as some characters seemed to have a lot and some had none but that added to a sense of mystery and intrigue that spending three days in a house on top of each other might normally lack. I liked the hot tub sequence and how they were checking each other out without checking each other out. I hope they make a sequel "4 day weekend" or at least, "three day jaunt to nowhere."

3.0 out of 5 stars Three Days, Three Stars February 20, 2011
This is one of better, but not the best by far, of indie gay movies screened here recently. My empathy for the characters made me gloss over some of the plot weakness. However, it is enjoyable and a good bet for light entertainment. The only thing that bothers me is that everyone is just too cheery about every turn of events and acts as if life choices are consequence-free.

4.0 out of 5 stars A really enjoyable show January 20, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I liked this show. In fact, I've watched it twice now which shows that I really do like it (many such movies I only see once). I buy the ones I really like.

Good things about the show: writing is good, acting is rather good, production values are OK (relatively speaking), and the show actually has something to say to a variety of sub-audiences who might see it (meaning there is a wide spectrum of types and interests depicted in the film which adds to its interest value for the sub-types of gay men who might see it).

Bad things about the show: writing could be better (and the story expanded a bit), and more money would have helped polish the show (particularly the music used) and thus made it more than a B-minus film.

I won't recount the story or comment on the amount of "naked skin" because other reviewers have done that. I will just say that I rather liked this movie and would recommend that others buy it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing to say the very least....... June 23, 2010
If average was a word used to describe cold porridge, with lumps, then this movie is below average. Put eight gay men into one log cabin, and have all the stereotypical gay neurosis emerge. The acting was stoic, at times forced, with almost every character having been ill considered in both concept, casting and dialog. Scenes felt forced, and whilst there were moments of excellent scripting, the actors failed horribly in delivering the content in a manner which I expect the writer had originally envisaged.

The sex and nudity was gratuitous, and served no purpose what so ever to the story. Whilst perversely some of the scenes which required nudity seemed obviously choreographed to avoid such. The script was stretched with moments of grandeur and insight. These however, were brief and momentary causing great frustration. Fleeting breaths of oxygen, whilst helpful for breathing, will result in gradual suffocation. The movie was painful. At least whilst undergoing major surgery, one has the benefit of medication.

I thought this was a great gay movie because it portrayed gay men in a positive light, and also there was some conflict, but they resolved it well, just like a real relationship.
