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

Movie Info

Three couples endure the living hell that is the happiest day of their lives in this comic mockumentary. Confetti is the United Kingdom's most prestigious wedding magazine, and publisher Antoni (Jimmy Carr) and editor Vivien (Felicity Montagu) have made a career out of documenting the cutting edge in nuptial ceremonies. Antoni and Vivien have decided to stage a contest to find the most original wedding concepts in Britain; the Confetti staff will narrow the field down to three candidates, help

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.

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

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

While the situations are pretty funny and the actors are committed, they're not ripe with hilarity.

A textbook example of what happens When Improv Falls Flat.

... Confetti comes off more like a reality TV show, in which the participants just don't express their obsessive cluelessness as exquisitely as sharp writers can through trained actors.

Martin Freeman and Jessica Stevenson are unstoppably likeable. Confetti is a genuinely funny movie. Waiting for Guffman fans will love it.

Director Debbie Isitt's improvised mockumentary is reminiscent of Christopher Guest's movies but without the reservoir of comic invention [...] Still, there are nice moments and good performances [...]

Even if it's not quite an affair to remember all year, this BBC Films mockumentary about three wacky weddings is pleasant and enjoyably diverting...

Just when you think you've got Confetti completely pegged, it offers a surprise or two.

Confetti is the latest mockumentary to encounter the problem of reality, or reality TV, being more outrageous than the filmmaker's send-up.

Though it feels like it should be funnier, it is a smiley and amusing affair full of happy endings and goodwill.

Moderately amusing, but rather wan when compared to really inspired mockumentaries.

Confetti may be mostly forgettable, but like bubbly at a wedding, the impression it leaves is light and effervescent.

September 23, 2006

A few laughs are right on target; others go over or under it; and most are fairly predictable.

Featuring actors largely unknown here, it's filled with positive energy and wit and, eventually, warmth.

It is ultimately involving as a portrait of couples bound by the vulnerabilities that brought them together in the first place.

September 22, 2006
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The characters are stereotypes and the action is mostly sitcom-ish, and the film seems to invite an audience to laugh at the characters rather than with them.

Audience Reviews for Confetti

I liked this a lot more than I thought I would! I have to say though I can't stand Jimmy Carr, Stephen Mangan or Meredith MacNeill. The three of them in one film would have prevented me from watching had I of known! This is much better than your average British comedy though (which unfortunately, isn't saying much) and I did chuckle a few times. Franklin and Watkins steal the show, Webb and Coleman should be congratulated for baring all and Freeman and Stevenson bought a romantic realism that should also be acknowledged. Better than your average Richard Curtis and tons better than your Bridget Jones's and your Full Monty crap!!

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