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.
| Original Score: 3/5
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.
The film amuses and charms in equal measure, relying on the comic timing of its ensemble British cast led by Rufus Hound.
It will all slide over painlessly when it turns up on television.
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.
Supremely well-intentioned, low-budget British comedy which, with all the will in the world, a likeable cast can't quite power to greatness.
The ratio of the film made it look like I was watching a moving postage stamp set in the middle of an envelope. Whatever happened to the idea of 'the big picture'?
| Original Score: 2/5
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?
This wedding comedy ought to be funnier and more lively than it is.There is, however, a good idea at its centre.
This homegrown romcom is pretty much doomed from the start.
For a better Webb/wedding bet, try Confetti or Peep Show's Season 4 finale.
