TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

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.


Movie Info

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.

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.
