- General info
Based on the classic Jerome K. Jerome novel, 'Three Men in a Boat' is the comedic story of a man who joins two friends on a boating trip after he is put under pressure to get married. Jimmy Edwards, Laurence Harvey and David Tomlinson play the three somewhat clueless gentlemen who take a pleasure excursion down the Thames in a small boat. The trio expect to do some male bonding and get some rest, but the trip is soon complicated by various adventures and mishaps. However, the complications turn to the more romantic kind when their trip seems fated to cross the path of fetching young ladies such as Sophie (Shirley Eaton), Primrose (Lisa Gastoni) and Bluebell (Jill Ireland).

Genevieve on Water, but not as good.
- Three Men in a Boat review by Steve Mason
Three Edwardian men (odd trio Jimmy Edwards, David Tomlinson and Laurence Harvey) seek to escape their domestic woes, by whiling away some hours on a boat...
Many fine films have hung on flimsier hooks than this. It is the idiotic slapstick, the relentless jolliness, the faux hyper-poshness, the bonnets and all the cringeworthy cherchez-la-femming that make this such an ordeal.

Fun, but ...
- Three Men in a Boat review by JH
Over-acted, and with rather heavy humour - too much slapstick and not enough wit. A cast as talented as this is really wasted. Good clean fun, but not nearly as good as the book! Time for a remake?
