Vulgar, trite comedy filled with drug use and sex.

What really got on my nerves, more than the appallingly bad jokes and sight gags, is the terrible music that haunts the film from start to finish.

From most vantage points, A Few Best Men seems like a real movie. It has a "story," "characters," & even scenes that superficially appear to contain "jokes," but many sketches are ultimately just that; sketches that stop short of offering moments of wit.

This Australian Hangover-style ensemble comedy strains so hard to be funny that it barely raises a smile

Director Elliott (Priscilla Queen of the Desert) tells this story with an odd combination of tourist-bureau style backdrops and full-on slapstick mayhem

When it eventually does let loose and go for some big gross out laughs - like feeding a sheep laxatives - it starts to work, but it's too little too late.

When embarrassment fails to be funny, it ends up as truly excruciating, and such is the case here.

This stomach-churningly dreadful film proves that our friends in the Southern Hemisphere can scrape corners of the barrel inaccessible to even the most fetid American imaginations.

No question this is dumb and derivative and the characters are generally obnoxious but it's raucous, energetic and enlivened by a game Olivia Newton-John ...

In a nutshell, it's just another foul-mouthed, British-flavoured wedding movie with a cast of uncouth young men trying to be as rude as possible.

A Few Best Men leaves logic standing at the altar as its two dimensional characters stumble from one faux pas to the next.

Director Stephan Elliott made The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert but here he doesn't seem to know his farce from his elbow.

There isn't one single laugh here for anyone who doesn't think that women are disgusting, men are morons, homosexuality is terrifying, and friendship is about cruelty and envy.

What must have seemed at some point in production to be charming and hilarious arrives on screen as neither of those things.

How can you resist a film in which Aussie national treasure Olivia Newton-John as the bride's mother lets her hair down for a raucous, cocaine-fuelled jag?

Bed, barf and beyond ...

The humour never rises above the level of burp, puke and fart jokes ...

There are no real belly laughs and it lacks the sureness of touch and character of other Australian comedies.
