A fun film for the whole family that entertains and encourages
In 3 DAY TEST, Martin Taylor has totally lost touch with his family. He has no clue who his teenage daughter’s friends are, why his son only communicates with an electronic sign outside his bedroom door, or why his youngest child only watches faith TV. Convinced the family needs to reconnect, Martin surprises the wife and kids with a little experiment—he locks them in their own home for three days with no power, no heat, no running water and absolutely no contact with the world outside! The sudden holiday “staycation” isn’t what the Taylors had in mind for the weekend, but they’ll have to team up to prove they can survive Dad’s wacky mission. With a heartfelt message and some persistence, one little member of the family helps put their priorities back in the pews, because they’ll need all the faith they have to get through this!
Corbin Bernsen Carves a New Film Industry Niche—As with his most recent film, 3 DAY TEST, Corbin Bernsen partners with local communities, often eager to have their cities featured, to raise production budgets and provide shooting locations. 3 DAY TEST marked a return to Akron, Ohio, as Bernsen previously filmed 25 HILL there, centered on the All-American Soap Box Derby, which is based in that community.
Casting Connections—Corbin Bernsen wrote the 3 DAY TEST almost 20 years ago as a vehicle for himself. Now, as production neared, he looked for a younger actor to play harried dad, Martin Taylor. He found a winner with George Newbern, well known as the son-in-law to be in FATHER OF THE BRIDE. Kevin Crowley, who plays Newbern’s character’s survivalist brother, is Newbern’s longtime friend and performed with Bernsen in the hit comedy MAJOR LEAGUE. Taylor Spreitler, who plays Newbern’s teenage daughter, in Bernsen’s words, will be “a force to reckon with” in the industry.
