A guy, a girl and Adam Baldwin.. Oops, I mean Stephen Baldwin

Dir. Andrew Fleming

Starring Lara Flynn Boyle, Josh Charles, Alec Baldwin.. Ooops, I mean Stephen Baldwin

The last of the great 80’s comedies, and it’s from 1994, Threesome manages to create it’s own niche in the comedy/drama genre.

It tells the story of two guys and a girl who end up sort-of-roommates at college, how sexual attraction isn’t really controllable, and sometimes just a real pain. Alex (Boyle) is attracted to Eddy (Charles), who is attracted to Stuart (Baldwin), who is attracted to Alex. It’s circular (makes hand gestures).

It’s also quite funny, if a little dated. The language was probably a love it / hate it barrier at the time, but maybe not so much in the age of motherfucking snake-filled planes. With all the sex and jokes about sex that’s in it, it never, ever crosses over into “standard sex comedy” territory, it’s too smart for that. The funny is all about people’s thoughts, actions based on them, and their consequences, not about some guy eating dog cum (which is funny too, but has it’s place and time).

If you haven’t seen it, and you’re not a rampant homophobe, then check it out. It’s a piece of comedy history you shouldn’t miss out on.
