Critics Consensus

This improvised mockumentary has its funny and even sweet moments, but it's not as witty or sharp as Christopher Guest's offerings.

  • What works for Christopher Guest's dedicated comedy troupe (and it doesn't always work) isn't so easy to imitate, especially with actors lacking in basic improv skills.

  • There's some genuine heart here, particularly in Sam and Matt's subplot.

  • A deliciously mean and fluffy little mockumentary.

    Sep 22, 2006 | Rating: 4/5
  • As is typical of many weddings, the planning drags, and so does the movie.

  • With barely a laugh to be found, Confetti takes the 'mock' right out of the mockumentary.

    Undeservedly overlooked by everyone when released, this film does deserve a watch, especially if you're a fan of British comedy. It does have flaws and drags in places (especially when the tennis couple aren't on screen), but it's still an amusing and well-written mockumentary.

    Wasnt sure about this one but the acting was great, the plotline fast and funny and the film was overall a good watch.

    Weird of three wedding couples in the competition. I dislike tennis and nudity couples because they look ridiculous in their wedding bliss.
