Annals: ‘The Weekend’

Had I known when I read the script that this movie was more derivative fare in an already saturated comedic category of teen hijinks, right down to my role as the aggrieved high school principal? Obviously. But when one gets to taste a million-dollar budget so soon in a career largely laden with student work, in which -- in addition to acting -- one is asked to hold the boom, this was like walking onto the set of ‘Citizen Kane’. Notwithstanding a proper day rate, the crafty table alone was extraordinary: lobster salad for lunch? First-class set. It was also a very good time, and, if you watch the trailer, I don’t think I need to tell you there was no shortage of eye candy.
