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.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

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.

About five minutes into the extremely funny Confetti, which is packed with some of Britain's best comic talents, it became clear that those pasty-faced, lager-swilling guys and gals were born with a taking-the-piss gene (urinus abscondus).

Confetti is the latest mockumentary to encounter the problem of reality, or reality TV, being more outrageous than the filmmaker's send-up.

Though it feels like it should be funnier, it is a smiley and amusing affair full of happy endings and goodwill.

Moderately amusing, but rather wan when compared to really inspired mockumentaries.

Confetti may be mostly forgettable, but like bubbly at a wedding, the impression it leaves is light and effervescent.

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 few laughs are right on target; others go over or under it; and most are fairly predictable.

A deliciously mean and fluffy little mockumentary.
| Original Score: 4/5
Shawn Levy
September 22, 2006
Featuring actors largely unknown here, it's filled with positive energy and wit and, eventually, warmth.
| Original Score: B+
Duane Dudek
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
September 22, 2006
It is ultimately involving as a portrait of couples bound by the vulnerabilities that brought them together in the first place.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Jam! Movies

The characters are stereotypes and the action is mostly sitcom-ish, and the film seems to invite an audience to laugh at the characters rather than with them.
