Critic Reviews for The Knot
The Knot finds a bumbling groomsman fishing for silver wedding bands in a diarrhea-filled toilet bowl. Viewers searching for moments of wit or insight ... might relate.
Clearly intent on being a British Hangover/Bridesmaids hybrid, this comedy romp doesn't contain a single laugh. It doesn't help that all of the characters are deeply unlikeable, or that the humour is literally centred in the toilet.
An offensive anthology of every loud, lewd and loathsome wedding joke staged or screened between The Taming of the Shrew and The Hangover.
If you can ignore the ill-judged slapstick and daft plot developments, it makes for diverting enough entertainment.
Audience Reviews for The Knot
It wasn't horrible, but nothing special either. I guess I am bored with wedding movies and though the cover compares it to Bridesmaids, it's nowhere near as funny.
Cast are mostly okay, though a few are horrible. Has the feel of a low budget movie. The only "star" was Mena Suvari, and she's out of place as an american in this English movie.
Though I intended to switch it off several times, it somehow didn't happen, so I did watch all of it. I can't honestly say if I am glad I did or not, but I guess it had a few moments mixed in there!
Probably the gross out stuff, such as the bride on the toilet, could have been omitted.
This has a few too many pranks and problems to be realistic, but it is still good for a laugh and a happily-ever-after story.
