THE LONG WEEKEND wants to be a gross, irreverent and funny sex comedy, but it fails on every single level. And not for lack of trying either; they throw pretty much everything they can think of in the movie—fart jokes, semen jokes, poop jokes, horse erection jokes, pubic hair jokes—and none of it works. At all. The only time I laughed in the entire film is when Chris Klein’s character tried to do Shakespeare, but I think that was supposed to be a serious moment.
The “hook” of the movie is that the main character films everything on his camcorder and at random situations in the movie he’ll flash back to some of his footage in Family Guy-style reference cuts. The idea could possibly work if they didn’t constantly use gross-out footage such as home movies of monkeys drinking pee, elephants sticking their trunks in each others asses, hippos spraying feces on terrified children, bears autofellating themselves and giant walrus penises. Never has there been so much random animal ding-dong seen on film since FREDDY GOT FINGERED.
There’s really nothing worthwhile in THE LONG WEEKEND except for the hot girl from How I Met Your Mother in a small role, as well as a brief appearance by Lost hottie Evangeline Lily (who has a three second cameo as a dead corpse). In conclusion, avoid it like plague-filled cancer.
