A Few Best Men Reviews

There are no real belly laughs and it lacks the sureness of touch and character of other Australian comedies.
August 30, 2012
Hateful characters, stupid situations, woeful filmmaking.
August 29, 2012
Tries painfully hard to be funny but fails in the attempt, thanks to an over-indulgent script, lacklustre romantic leads and unlikeable main characters ...
August 28, 2012
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.'
August 27, 2012
As appealing as a cigarette in a beer can.
August 23, 2012
Its desperate efforts to ape The Hangover come with but one redeeming feature - it finally ends.

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

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.

While it does not match up against recent raunchy comedies it clearly takes influence from, A Few Best Men surprises with its cheeky spirit and an interesting role reversal of cultures.

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.
February 7, 2012
The set-up is simple enough at best. The execution is simple-minded at worst.
February 7, 2012
Australia needs more envelope-pushing comedies, but A Few Best Men doesn't deliver.
February 7, 2012
Achieves is perhaps the first steps toward a different sort of wedding-related film in the Australian landscape: not one trying to compete with a cult classic, but one that's just looking to let its hair down and have a good time.
February 7, 2012
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.

The writing/producing team behind 2007 Brit farce Death At A Funeral transplants most of the same plot points but none of the laughs...
January 29, 2012
It is fun in the middle but it is bookended by a tediously slow first act and an asthmatic wheeze of an ending.
January 27, 2012
I can't recall too many wedding flicks that have been this crazy and this outlandish. I certainly had a lot of fun watching it!

Olivia Newton John is an absolute hoot as mother in law Barbara in this madcap romantic comedy that brings together English and Australian humour in earthy earnest.

Directed by Stephan Elliott (The Adventures of Priscilla) with his indefatigable joie de vivre and wicked sense of humour, the film is a sure fix if you need a laugh
