THE WEDDING VIDEO is an uproariously funny comedy about every bride and groom's special day. When Raif (Rufus Hound) is asked to be the best man at his brother Tim's (Robert Webb) high society British wedding, he decides to make a no-holds-barred documentary of everything that happens leading up to the big day and give it as a gift to the happy couple.

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
The premise wears thin after a while and the humor is hit-and-miss, but when it's on its game "The Wedding Video" can be laugh-out-loud funny.
Supremely well-intentioned, low-budget British comedy which, with all the will in the world, a likeable cast can't quite power to greatness.
Still has lots of very funny moments and a realistic interpretation of the lengths some people go to when confronted by a camera lens and under ... pressure to perform.
It's not a bad production, but the excitement of its concept soon wears off - largely because wedding movies are so old hat these days. And who wears old hats at a wedding?
Except for a very silly ending, his film goes down as easily as a glass of bubbly.
A compendium of every terrible wedding experience and joke you ever heard (including the bride's teenage reputation for drugs and promiscuity), it's crude, broad and moderately funny.
The found-footage gimmick has become a tired cliché in the horror genre but it receives a new jolt of energy in this sprightly romantic comedy thanks to the comic spark provided by a clutch of big-and-small screen British stars.
This wedding comedy ought to be funnier and more lively than it is.There is, however, a good idea at its centre.
The film amuses and charms in equal measure, relying on the comic timing of its ensemble British cast led by Rufus Hound.
We get one or two outrageous sight gags and massive "getting progressively drunk" montages, and some neatly managed comedy on the laugh-with/laugh-at borderline.
It gets by more on goodwill than inspiration, but it's lightly amusing and well played.
Low on big laughs but remains enjoyable thanks to a consistently amusing script and strong comic performances from a talented cast, though it's also a little too predictable in places.
Not quite Four Weddings-funny but always entertaining and endearing in equal measure. Less so if you're preparing for a wedding.
