Synopsis:
Meet two brothers. Brother number one is Ed Waxman (Brendan Fehr). Ed grew up video taping and everything. Then he fell in love with Cathy and launched a brilliant advertising career. The career tanked when Cathy dumped him. One Friday he learns that the only way he can save his job is to turn up at the agency on Monday afternoon with a world-stopping campaign. Brother number two is Cooper (Chris Klein), a minor actor and major Lothario who has achieved financial success pitching Japanese whiskey. It is Ed's birthday and Cooper's well-meaning ambition for the weekend is simple - set Ed to rights by getting him laid.
Ed is reluctant but Cooper insists he'll be back at work and in a more creative frame of mind in no time. Cooper tries various approaches - the results are both disastrous and hilarious. By the time he has spent the night in jail with a maniac, Ed has had enough. He and Cooper come to blows and Ed takes off. As the hours go by, a worried Cooper makes an unexpected decision and Ed discovers the inspiration he needs - it was right under his nose the whole time.

Good not so clean fun - The Long Weekend review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
06/09/2006

This movie was very amusing in a very cheeky but harmless sort of way. Not much of a plot but it wasnt boring and the video clips were funny and occasionally gross

Gross-out lewd unfunny slapstick teen movie for undemanding 13-16 year olds. - The Long Weekend review by PV

Spoiler Alert

I lasted 40 minutes with this before ejecting. Maybe if I were 13 or 14 and of very little brain, I'd find it funny. Or maybe not. It is gross-out as with AMERICAN PIE and PORKY'S and THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY. I dislike such movies in general and do not find them remotely funny. Many will of course - the more unsophisticated audience who think vulgar visual gags about sex and toilets are hilarious. Zzzz.

It is a B-movie gross-out movie too - bodily fluids, cheap video clips used throughout (maybe to save money and maybe to appeal to kids weaned on YouTube?) The hilarious thing is, video tapes and cameras are almost antiques now and obsolete.

The plot is so paper thin it blew away within seconds. The characters all vile and unpleasant.

The director later directed the brilliant Britflick horror WHEN THE LIGHTS WENT OUT in 2013. Rent that and forget this trash.

1 star.
