    Rowlands and Unger deliver sensitive performances, Shields is surprisingly good.

    It's a coffee-table movie, but what saves it are a couple of performances.Rowlands puts a spin on every line reading, Harris quietly mines regret, and Shields, assured and sexy, has never been this good.

    You rarely see movies as dramatically uneven as The Weekend, which has a dreadful, one-star first half - followed by an interesting, three-star conclusion.
  5. Reviewed by: Ken Eisner

    Despite some memorable high points, pic plays like "Love! Valour! Compassion!" -- without the laughs.
  6. You have to admire the effort its attractive cast expends pumping life into stilted, flowery dialogue that confuses pretentious attitudinizing with profound insight.
