One Week is an 1920 short film starring Buster Keaton and Sybil Seely as newlyweds who receive a DIY portable house as a wedding gift. They spend a week assembling it with disastrous results thanks to sabotage by a rejected suitor, as well as their own hilarious ineptness.

One Week was added to the National Film Registry in 2008.

This film is in the public domain and can be viewed in its entirety at Google Video.
