Weekend Warriors

A laid back weekend in the Canadian part-time army turns serious when 3 cowardly soldiers receive an urgent distress call.

Weekend Warriors is a military farce that mixes elements of comedy, drama, suspense, horror & psychological thriller. Imagine a Wes Anderson or Flight of the Conchords approach to the Canadian army. It re-imagines the classic retro army shows by injecting the format with a modern, ironic, and absurd spin, taking it to the extreme heights of a Dr. Strangelove.

The idea was inspired by a unique technicality. In Canada, civilians have the opportunity to join the Army Reserves without being obligated to fight. The film hinges on this technicality, exploring characters that join the army without any intention of fighting (or claim they do but are lying).
