Additions Take Away from Film
Norm Foster is Canada’s most popular playwright, and The Foursome one of his more popular plays. It’s a play that presents a good opportunity for a screen adaptation, but is a challenging play to adapt. The play takes place exclusively at the tee of each of the eighteen holes of a golf course, involves only four characters and consists almost entirely of dialogue. A film using the play as a screenplay would be dull indeed, as the audience expects the film to use its ability to show us different scenes and more complex action to tell the story.

This screenplay fails to translate the play effectively to the screen, and for two main reasons. First, the play is an ensemble work–the merciless macho banter of the golfers touches nerves in all four characters and forces them to justify their lives. Here there is a focus on the character of Rick which skews the balance among the characters. Second, the adapter has added the characters of the golfers’ wives and invented subplots and interactions among them, added a gay course marshal, added a chase scene involving golf carts and added an extra 18 holes of golf. None of these additions help the real point of the story which is the exposure of the reality of the golfers’ lives (often kept as carefully guarded secrets). While making room for all of this rubbish, the screenwriter has cut away plot point after plot point from the stage play, effectively gutting the characters, especially Ted, Donnie and Cam, and leaving empty caricatures. At the same time the carefully laid foundations in the play have been so eroded that the characters’ actions (and especially the denouement) seem arbitrary rather than natural for them. For an example, in the play we hear that Rick gave Donnie a wedgie at the reunion. Instead of showing us this incident, which tells us a lot about Rick and Donnie and their relationship, and which would be effective cinematically, the whole event disappears. Bits of Foster’s dialogue float to the surface from time to time but usually missing context and sometimes missing the punchline. An exception is Rick’s plan to sell Brazilian Pepper Trees which arrives intact and hilarious.

Considering the weak script, the actors made a reasonably good job of this. I was particularly impressed with Paul Jarrett’s Ted (the role Foster himself played in the theatrical debut) and with Nicole Oliver as Cam’s wife Lori. Production values were mostly solid throughout. I thought the opening titles, though clever, were a little hard to read.

Generally this was a squandered opportunity to do a really good adaptation of a very good play. A pity.

Affable comedy
Four middle-aged friends get back together at their 20th anniversary college reunion. The quartet are immediately challenged to participate in a high stakes game of golf for cash. Director William Dear, working from a blithely lightweight script by Jackson Davies, relates the enjoyable story at a brisk pace, nicely captures the competitive male spirit, and maintains an engaging good-natured toner throughout. Moreover, the humor is refreshingly bereft of any nasty cynicism and has an appealingly upbeat’n’breezy sensibility to it. Better yet, there are touching moments of real heart and camaraderie amid all the laughs. The leads display a loose and natural chemistry: Kevin Dillon as smooth hustler Rick Foster, John Shaw as worrywart Cameron Towers, Chris Gauthier as the sweet bumbler Donnie Spencer, and Paul Jarrett as cocky rich dude Ted Renton. The luscious Siri Baruc delivers a winning blend of spark and sexiness as Ted’s hot young trophy babe wife Karen. Nicole Oliver likewise does well as Cameron’s snarky spouse Lori. Ron Williams’ slick cinematography provides an attractive bright look. Chris Ainscough’s jaunty score keeps things bubbling along. A pleasant little romp.
