The Long Weekend

Synopsis: Cooper and Ed are brothers: Coop acts, in ads and soaps, spending his real energy chasing women for one-night stands. His younger brother Ed, an earnest young man, works in an ad agency. For the past year, since finding his girlfriend in bed with another man with a video camera running, Ed has been in a funk: he's carried a torch, his social life has tanked, and his work has suffered. Ed will be fired on Monday unless he can save a major account. It's his birthday weekend: he wants to work, but Cooper wants Ed to rediscover his sex life. Cooper works hard to help Ed score, but disaster piles on disaster. Can a decent guy save his job and get a life?
Genre: Comedy

as many of Cathy's friends as possible,

Ed just moved out and swore

he'd never touch a video camera again.

In an instant

Ed had gotten rid of Cathy and home video.

And I can't say I was sorry

to see either of them go.

I thought he'd finally start exploring

life, having fun, getting pussy.

But he got even more

bottled up than before.

Yeah, well, what my brother Cooper

didn't know is that was living a nightmare.

Dude, she is going crazy. I shit you not.

She's digging her nails in, she's

screaming, she's moaning, she's like,

"Oh, do me. Do me. I feel like a whore. "

At random moments, scenes from my archives

kept coming back into my head.

Stop! Stop! Stop!

She's like, "Uh, uh, uh, uh!"

I'm like, "Get off of it!"

It's like dust coming out.

Or at the doctor's.

Now, Mr. Waxman,

you may feel a little discomfort.

Just try to relax.

Even worse, it affected me at work.

Mr. Mclntyre,

I must say that we here

at Barnes, Butcher,

Leiber, Melchett, Farquhar,

Hidalgo, and Roper

are one lucky advertising agency

to have a client as...

.. enlightened as yourself.

- And I'm not just saying that.

- Thank you.

It is nothing but elegant and classy.

That was you.

Ladies and gentlemen,

I present to you your new ad campaign,

which rolls out nationwide next week.

Ed, if you'll do the honours.

"Real fur. Ifs fur real. "



There it is! That's what I'm talking about!


That's right Yeah!

What a bunch of assholes.

Do you really think this is going to

get people to start wearing fur again?

That question falls into

the "Who gives a f*ck?" Category.

Mclntyre wanted that slogan,

and it's his damn money.

You know what I'm saying?

We're here to help people

sell their product,

not just agree with
