Trying to get away for a weekend and focus on their relationship, Carl (Sam Huntington) takes his wife Sue (Meaghan Rath) to a mountain lodge for some skiing and wine tasting. Unfortunately for Carl, upon arrival, he discovers that his ex-girlfriend Robyn (Emmanuelle Chriqui)who he used to bring quite often to the same lodge back in the dayis now the owner of the lodge. Wackiness ensues as Carl tries to keep as much of his previous relationship hidden from his wife as possible. Though the acting is of high qualityboth Huntington and Rath are regulars on Being Human, though Huntington will always be Jam from Detroit Rock City to methe editing for Three Night Stand is so unsightly and choppy that it became a constant distraction throughout the film. The worst scene involves Carl and Robyn walking through the woods with their skis, then suddenly they pull up on a snowmobile, which they dismount and find themselves back with the skis as another character approaches them on the same snowmobile they had just been onthe editing is unpleasant to say the least. A tip of the hat to Huntington, Chriqui and Rathand to Jonathan Cherry, who steals many a scene as the husband of Carl's best friend/co-worker Staceybut between the egregious editing and the overall weak plot line, Three Night Stand is sadly insufficient.

A couple go to a ski lodge which happens to be run by the man's ex girlfriend who he is still in love with.
Three Night Stand is a slightly quirky comedy drama. It all seems pretty familiar and the script doesn't really hold any surprises. However it did manage to hold my attention throughout and I did enjoy it.
It starts off as more of a comedy but the second half focuses more on the drama. It isn't particularly funny but it is amusing at times and some of the drama works nicely. The acting is good from all concerned and the characters are all pretty good if a bit of a mish-mash.
Overall this is nothing special but it is an enjoyable way to pass 90 minutes.

It's not quite the worst movie I've seen...
It's not quite the worst movie I've seen...it really isn't - but I'd be hard pushed to think of anything I've seen recently which comes close.
I can't fault any one thing, the story is OK, the writing fits, the cast, love 'em, location, nice, but put it together and, well, it just doesn't flow.
The sex scenes, such as they were, were dreadful (even in context) and seem forced in (no pun intended) and the editing seems to have been a bit hit and miss to the extent that I wonder if they lost some of the footage - or maybe had to re-shoot after losing an actor. That might also address why the story seemed to have gaps and why we didn't see enough character development.
On the cast, for me, best performance was Emmanuelle Chriqui, the character could have been so much more. Sam Huntington puts in a good performance too and takes the character well but doesn't get anywhere.
I'm left disappointed by the whole story. More could have been explored between Robyn and Carl, something deeper than at aborted quickie on a snowmobile, something more tender, something unfinished, we could have been left wondering what if.....? Instead we get that Carl would jump his ex literally minutes after rowing with his wife, nobody comes out of this 'clean', I can't find anyone to root for.
Sadly, this Canadian film even incorrectly name checks the Yamaha snowmobile as a 'Ski-Doo' - the latter being a brand name of the Canadian Bombardier Recreational Products.
I'm sorry to leave a largely negative review but if you are looking for funny or dramatic, look elsewhere.
