Nevertheless, the three leads, the sharp dialog, the great late-80's/early-90's soundtrack (Tears 4 Fears, Duran Duran), and the undeniably provocative tone make for a thoroughly enjoyable 90 minutes.

A wonderfully exciting film.

Both of them handles their roles perfectly well with Boyle nailing the confusion and frustration of her character and Charles really coming off well as someone who doesn't know who he is.

Unfortunately for myself and all other viewers victim of witnessing this movie, the writer leaves all the intriguing and intelligent parts out and what we are left with is a pretty formulaic comedy about people who want what they can't have.

What I don't indulge in are pointless, pretentious pieces of 'art', that consist of a contrived script and an excruciatingly bad acting ensemble.

All in all, a fun, enjoyable movie- with a nice, thought provoking kick in the stomach to make it really worth your time.

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it.

Interesting, thought provoking, enjoyable and well paced.

It is seriously neglected, certainly one of the most entertaining movies of its decade.

A very well-scripted and enjoyable film.

I would say this is a good chick flick movie and entertaining I guess.

" It's a stunning moment, and drop dead funny.

How sympathetic I found the idea of a film discussing the confusion of sexual identity, the frustration of falling in love with a dear friend and the debating on friendship versus falling in love, there is very little sympathetic about this movie.

Each of the main characters was likable and the movie was entertaining.

utterly boring.

Though some people might dismiss it as fluff, the issues of sexuality, confusion and desire being presented are extremely well-handled, and Flemming is very good at addressing them intelligently, through his characters, without ever abandoning believability- especially in regards to how college kids talk and think.

Interesting concept, clever writing and all-round pretty entertaining .

I thought Threesome was an interesting, thought provoking and enjoyable film.

I was expecting a rather cheesy film in which we see all the predictable sexual quandries you might expect out of a comedy like this.
