Critic Reviews for The Third Wheel
Just when the movie should be getting more annoying, it becomes highly enjoyable -- thanks to Lacopo's warm performance.
The Third Wheel sucks, but it sucks a lot less than many films of its kind, with lesser names and worse screenplays, which for some reason get on a whole lot more screens.
in the end I was starting to feel like I was the third wheel in the relationship between the DVD and my DVD player
As beautiful and amiable as she is amusing, this is one of Richard's best parts...easily tolerable and not to mention, a tad cute.
Audience Reviews for The Third Wheel
The only thing they didn't have on their perfect date... was any privacy.
Fun but mediocre movie! "The Third Wheel" is a cute movie. The screenplay has many flaws, but the charming lead couple and the situation of Stanley, with the whole office cheering for him and a stranger simply ruining his dreamed night is very sweet and funny. The story practically has no plot point, the film is far from being a masterpiece, but I liked it enough.
The clumsy and shy Stanley is a nice fellow, beloved by his colleagues in the office. He has a crush on the gorgeous new-hire Diana, but he has difficulties to get close to her. When Stanley finally invites Diana for a date, he hits the homeless Phil with his Taurus and his planned night turns upside down.
"The Third Wheel was a lot of fun to watch. I wasn't really sure what it was going to be about, but seeing Ben and Luke on the cover I thought it couldn't be too bad. I was right. It was actually pretty funny. I laughed a lot. Jay Lacoop as Phil was funny. Luke had some good bantering as well. I even really liked Denise in this. I forget sometimes that she is a decent actress and not just the poor soul who married the 'Winning' Mr. Sheen. I liked Ben in this too. He is more of a side character, but still is funny in this. My favorite part is when he tries to get freaky with Melissa McCarthy on his motorcycle. This movie has the best ending credits. I loved it. If your in the mood for a laugh then give this flick a try. I would definitely watch this again."
I wasn't expecting much out of this but was pleasantly surprised. The movie actually had a couple of laugh out loud moments and did not rely on profanity and sex for the plot. It never ceases to amaze me when familiar faces show up in movies that I have never heard of. This is one of them.
