Weekend With Kate (1990)
Arch Nicholson directed this breezy sex comedy concerning ex-journalist turned rock promoter Richard Muir (Colin Friel), who is pulled in two different directions by the women in his life -- his vivacious wife, Catherine (Catherine McClements), who wants to have a baby -- and Carla (Helen Mutkins), his ambitious mistress, who wants to have Richard. Richard decides to take his wife away for the weekend to their beach house -- not for a vacation, but to tell her that he is leaving her. Catherine, not realizing the ulterior motives of the weekend at the shore, determines to use the intimacy of a weekend with her husband to get pregnant. But then all bets are off when self-absorbed rock star Jon Thorne (Jerome Ehlers) arrives at the beach town for a weekend of quiet fishing. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi … More

Audience Reviews for Weekend With Kate
Colin Friels is very funny and has all the best lines, but he's let down by the weakness of the other characters and the unevenness of tone as the film veers between comic farce and a serious look at relationships. This film is Friels and Catherine McClements' first starring together before they reunited in Aussie's TV drama series, Water Rats.More
