Long Weekend Parents Guide Review
Bart (Finn Wittrock), who just got out of a bad relationship, needs a job and is pretty much down on his luck. He is forced to move in with his best friend Doug (Damon Wayons Jr.) and his family while he looks for employment. He meets a woman named Vienna (Zoe Chao) outside a movie theater and the two spark immediately. She invited him to a day of drinking, chatting, and having a great time just hanging out. Bart really enjoys Vienna’s company, but there is something strange about her. Vienna doesn’t have a cell phone and she carries around thousands of dollars in cash. Bart seeks the truth on Vienna’s story, but it is nothing what he expected it to be.
Long Weekend Age Appropriate Parents Guide
Lets take a look at what parents need to know before allowing their kids to view Long Weekend.
Language: Long Weekend contains some strong language with profanity used throughout including: b*tch, f*ck, sh*t, d*ck, piss and penis.
Mature Content: This film contains drinking of alcohol, heavy kissing, making out, and implied sex; where a couple wakes up together the next morning naked under sheets.
What may seem like another run-of-the-mill romantic comedy, Long Weekend will shock viewers with unexpected twists and a smart plot. Writer Steve Basilone makes his directoral debut with Long Weekend and not only brings audiences a fun, romantic story but also surprising sci-fi themes that add to the twists, mystery, and a bit of freshness to the film.
While the sci-fi themes of the film brings fun twists and keeps viewers always guessing to the mental stability of the characters, at the core of the film is something much deeper; a charming love story. Wittrock and Chao have great onscreen chemistry and the bond between the two seems easy and natural. Wittrock definitely has the “look” of a dashingly handsome lead, however, it is Chao who stands out with her light and carefree charisma. Viewers may recognize Chao in supporting roles, such as HBO’s Love Life, where she excelled as Anna Kendrick’s out-of-control fiery best friend. After witnessing her performance in Long Weekend, this author is looking forward to witnessing the extent of her talents on the big screen.
Long Weekend isn’t a ground-breaking film by any means but it is a quirky romantic comedy to enjoy on a date night with your partner. It brings enough fun twists to keep viewers interested yet it doesn’t require much thought, allowing viewers to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
