Storyline

Cooper and Ed are brothers: Coop acts, in ads and soaps, spending his real energy chasing women for one-night stands. His younger brother Ed, an earnest young man, works in an ad agency. For the past year, since finding his girlfriend in bed with another man with a video camera running, Ed has been in a funk: he's carried a torch, his social life has tanked, and his work has suffered. Ed will be fired on Monday unless he can save a major account. It's his birthday weekend: he wants to work, but Cooper wants Ed to rediscover his sex life. Cooper works hard to help Ed score, but disaster piles on disaster. Can a decent guy save his job and get a life? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Piece of crap if ever I saw one
6 November 2006 | by (Austria, Vienna) – See all my reviews

Let me just make clear from the start why this movie gets 3/10 stars from me. 1 out of 10 stars would be a movie by people without any knowledge of making movies at all and/or with inhuman content. 2/10 stars is a movie that was made professionally but without anything good or interesting about it. So, technically "The Long Weekend" should be in that category, but let's say Chris Klein's acceptable performance saved it from that rating.

Klein is just about bearable, which can't be said about the rest of this movie. Here's a short guide for aspiring makers of comedies: Tits, fart jokes, sperm or anything vulgar does not automatically equal funny. In fact, most of the time it's the opposite. The makers of "The Long Weekend" don't seem to understand that. They explore every dick joke no matter how predictable and disgusting it is. Actually, that's the best way to describe this movie: predictable, disgusting and let's add incredibly boring to that list of adjectives. The only thing remotely original about this piece of crap are the many blooper videos that are cut in from time to time. No, that's not enough to justify the making of this disaster. Not even close. Consider yourself degenerated if you think this movie is funny!
