While the situations are pretty funny and the actors are committed, they're not ripe with hilarity.

A textbook example of what happens When Improv Falls Flat.

... Confetti comes off more like a reality TV show, in which the participants just don't express their obsessive cluelessness as exquisitely as sharp writers can through trained actors.

Martin Freeman and Jessica Stevenson are unstoppably likeable. Confetti is a genuinely funny movie. Waiting for Guffman fans will love it.

Director Debbie Isitt's improvised mockumentary is reminiscent of Christopher Guest's movies but without the reservoir of comic invention [...] Still, there are nice moments and good performances [...]

Even if it's not quite an affair to remember all year, this BBC Films mockumentary about three wacky weddings is pleasant and enjoyably diverting...

Just when you think you've got Confetti completely pegged, it offers a surprise or two.

It's inspired, glorious chaos.

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.
September 22, 2006
There's some genuine heart here, particularly in Sam and Matt's subplot.

A few laughs are right on target; others go over or under it; and most are fairly predictable.
September 22, 2006
A deliciously mean and fluffy little mockumentary.
