Confetti (2006)

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: This improvised mockumentary has its funny and even sweet moments, but it's not as witty or sharp as Christopher Guest's offerings.

It's inspired, glorious chaos.

What works for Christopher Guest's dedicated comedy troupe (and it doesn't always work) isn't so easy to imitate, especially with actors lacking in basic improv skills.

There's some genuine heart here, particularly in Sam and Matt's subplot.

A deliciously mean and fluffy little mockumentary.

Sep 22, 2006 | Rating: 4/5

As is typical of many weddings, the planning drags, and so does the movie.

Sep 22, 2006 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

With barely a laugh to be found, Confetti takes the 'mock' right out of the mockumentary.

Weird of three wedding couples in the competition. I dislike tennis and nudity couples because they look ridiculous in their wedding bliss.

This is definitely one of the funniest movies I've seen all year. The style is Best in Show and A Mighty Wind; except it's made by Brits and is sometimes more outrageous and comically unpredictable. The film follows three couples in London who are in the process of getting married. Confetti magazine (a bridal mag) wants to pay for their weddings...if they can come up with the most creative concept. So, we meet a couple who wants a Broadway Melody-wedding; a couple who would adore a tennis-themed party; and another couple who want to be married in the nude (they're naturists.) What follows is a series of events that are both outrageous and extraordinary all at once. The performances are top-notch and delivered with such deadpan reassurance, that you wonder how these people got through the scenes with a straight face. Definitely check this one out on DVD (as I'm sure it's already gone from theatres.) And don't miss-out on one of the funniest comedies of the year.
