Storyline

One hot June day, three friends decide there is nothing they would like to do more than to get away from London. A boating holiday with lots of fresh air and exercise would be just the very thing, or so their doctors tell them. So, after debating the merits of hotel or camp beds and what to pack, they set off on their voyage - a trip up the Thames from Henley to Oxford - but very quickly find themselves ill-equipped for the trials of riverbank life. Written by Dabby

Trivia

Tom Stoppard had never read Jerome K. Jerome's famous novel when he was asked to adapt it for this TV movie. He claimed that this was actually a help, as "I didn't know which bits were supposed to be funny". See more »

Quotes

Jerome: Maidenhead itself is too snobby to be pleasant. It is the haunt of the river swell and his overdressed female companion. It is the town of showy hotels, patronised chiefly by dudes and ballet girls. It is the witch's kitchen from which go forth those demons of the river-steam-launches.

Screenplay by Tom Stoppard Based on Jerome K Jerome book Three Men In A Boat Shipping took about three weeks Well worth getting for Jerome fans Very funny. Decent production values.
