Confetti Reviews

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

Sacramento News & Review

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.

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

It's inspired, glorious chaos.

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

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

A deliciously mean and fluffy little mockumentary.

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.

Overall, Confetti is agreeable and appropriately daft, though occasionally tepid and contrived.

William Arnold
Seattle Post-Intelligencer

The humor is sweet-spirited, the dialogue (all improvised by the cast) is acerbic and witty, the celebration of unbridled tackiness is often hilarious.

The climactic scenes possess an irresistible charm, as each wedding turns out to be just perfect.

It gradually becomes clear that Confetti is funny because it views its flawed, crazy characters with real affection.

There's an affectionate tone to Confetti that makes it a serviceable time-waster.

The savvy British actors sweating for our amusement in Debbie Isitt's comedy, a fairly funny mockumentary-style lark about a magazine-sponsored wedding competition, fare better than their self-generated material.

Confetti has an innate sweetness -- especially when it comes to Archibald and Gregory, the most endearing of all the twosomes.

[Confetti] has a few great lines and a knack for sweeping you off your feet with surprisingly intimate romantic moments.

The TV-flat production makes it easier to laugh at the obvious jokes, while the cast's spot-on timing makes the subtler humor shine even brighter.
