A Few Best Men is trashy, low brow, lazy, generic, boring comedy - without any remotely likeable characters. This film is a 'mustn't see'.

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.

An out-and-out failure.

Will really test what you consider to be funny. Director Stephan Elliott puts a serious dent in his resume and may have his Australian citizenship revoked as a result.

Frivolous stuff, but there's a sour edge to the silliness, with far more gay panic colouring the jokes than you'd expect from the director of 'The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.'

Vulgar, trite comedy filled with drug use and sex.

Happy with hit and miss humour that's more often the latter than former, it fails to lift from slapstick silliness, disappointing audiences looking for more.

Australia needs more envelope-pushing comedies, but A Few Best Men doesn't deliver.

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

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

It is fun in the middle but it is bookended by a tediously slow first act and an asthmatic wheeze of an ending.

The writing/producing team behind 2007 Brit farce Death At A Funeral transplants most of the same plot points but none of the laughs...

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.

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.

A largely unfunny blend of frantic farce and gross-out humour.

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.

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.

All I have to say to those who keep forking out good money for this junk is (to paraphrase my father): If you keep encouraging them, they'll just keep doing it.

The set-up is simple enough at best. The execution is simple-minded at worst.

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