Underrated Treasures Blogfest: Good things come in three's?

by Kim Van Sickler

Alex Cavanaugh piqued my interest with this blogfest, based on a book, movie, band/artist, or show that we love, but you may not have ever heard of before.

I thought of my example right away.

Next blogfest

I think it's a combination of the cinematography (my first view of the Greek island of Santorini, a place I just HAD to visit, and did, about 15 years after first seeing this movie.)


The naughty topic:
Ménage à trois with beautiful people, including Daryl Hanna.



And my first real consideration of whether a threesome relationship is realistic, healthy, and practical. (Final analysis: No, no, and no.) Exciting, but a total fantasy...

Like Caddyshack, Animal House, Dirty Dancing, Flashdance, and Love Actually, this is a movie that's fun to watch again every so often. For the scenery, for the simple yet entertaining story-line, for the fantastical concept of people falling in love and enjoying one another without jealousy tearing them apart.

Has anyone else seen this movie? If so, did the premise intrigue you as much as it did a barely post-teen me?

    1. It really did! Just anchored itself in my imagination and stuck around all those years.

  2. Santorini? Isn't that the Greek island in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants? I've never heard of this movie, but it does look like an incredible place to visit.

    1. Yes! There is a reason this island is used for idyllic film shots!

  3. Relationships of three, even at school with pals, never worked out. One always is the leader and the two followers war over her attention. I haven't seen this movie, but it sounds fun and Greece is a beautiful place. :)

    1. My experience with girlfriend threesomes has been similar, Shah. In fact, I remember quite a few hurt feelings leading to arguments and tears over perceived slights. It got ugly.

  4. I saw it years ago. Every man's fantasy. Reality is just a bit different though!
    Thanks for participating in my blogfest.

  5. I agree with Shah's comment above: "Relationships of three, even at school with pals, never worked out." :)

    1. Yep. I've decided it's against human nature not to get jealous in intense relationships. And jealous people can do some spiteful things.

  6. That is a fantasy about love with no jealousy. The scenery looks beautiful.

  8. I have seen this and remember it well... in a boy to teenager kind of way. Wow that sounded wrong, so I change it to something less creepy. lol.

    1. Interesting that the men have seen it and the women haven't. It does uphold that male fantasy theory.

  9. I've never heard of this one before, but I loved Hannah in Splash.

    1. Splash came out a couple of years after this one did.

  12. Have not seen this film. But I have visited a Greek island and it was a real treat. There were about 30 beaches on this one island.
