A Few Best Men Reviews

Henry Fitzherbert
Daily Express

No question this is dumb and derivative and the characters are generally obnoxious but it's raucous, energetic and enlivened by a game Olivia Newton-John ...

Matt's Movie Reviews

While it does not match up against recent raunchy comedies it clearly takes influence from, A Few Best Men surprises with its cheeky spirit and an interesting role reversal of cultures.

The Vine

Achieves is perhaps the first steps toward a different sort of wedding-related film in the Australian landscape: not one trying to compete with a cult classic, but one that's just looking to let its hair down and have a good time.

I can't recall too many wedding flicks that have been this crazy and this outlandish. I certainly had a lot of fun watching it!

Olivia Newton John is an absolute hoot as mother in law Barbara in this madcap romantic comedy that brings together English and Australian humour in earthy earnest.

Directed by Stephan Elliott (The Adventures of Priscilla) with his indefatigable joie de vivre and wicked sense of humour, the film is a sure fix if you need a laugh

From most vantage points, A Few Best Men seems like a real movie. It has a "story," "characters," & even scenes that superficially appear to contain "jokes," but many sketches are ultimately just that; sketches that stop short of offering moments of wit.

An out-and-out failure.

A largely unfunny blend of frantic farce and gross-out humour.

Shadows on the Wall

This Australian Hangover-style ensemble comedy strains so hard to be funny that it barely raises a smile

Director Elliott (Priscilla Queen of the Desert) tells this story with an odd combination of tourist-bureau style backdrops and full-on slapstick mayhem

When it eventually does let loose and go for some big gross out laughs - like feeding a sheep laxatives - it starts to work, but it's too little too late.

When embarrassment fails to be funny, it ends up as truly excruciating, and such is the case here.

This stomach-churningly dreadful film proves that our friends in the Southern Hemisphere can scrape corners of the barrel inaccessible to even the most fetid American imaginations.

Birmingham Mail

In a nutshell, it's just another foul-mouthed, British-flavoured wedding movie with a cast of uncouth young men trying to be as rude as possible.

A Few Best Men leaves logic standing at the altar as its two dimensional characters stumble from one faux pas to the next.

Director Stephan Elliott made The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert but here he doesn't seem to know his farce from his elbow.

There isn't one single laugh here for anyone who doesn't think that women are disgusting, men are morons, homosexuality is terrifying, and friendship is about cruelty and envy.

What must have seemed at some point in production to be charming and hilarious arrives on screen as neither of those things.

How can you resist a film in which Aussie national treasure Olivia Newton-John as the bride's mother lets her hair down for a raucous, cocaine-fuelled jag?
