Confetti is an excellent study of what happens when someone botches Christopher Guest's mockumentary format.

A textbook example of what happens When Improv Falls Flat.

No amount of zany improvisation can save a mockumentary with an inherently unfunny premise.

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.

Remember the "Stonehenge" joke in This Is Spinal Tap? Imagine that joke, or something similar, stretched all the way out to the edges of a 100-minute movie, so thin that it's transparent.

A more assured hand could have made it better.

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

Anyone who has cringed while watching the home movies of newlyweds bumbling through their own corny, personalized nuptials will appreciate the comic potential of the British mock documentary Confetti.

A strained, ultra-predictable and headache-inducing mockumentary.

Films, like weddings, need a certain amount of organization and a great deal of teamwork. This one seems like a dozen solo projects.

Confetti fires off the occasional good line, but it mostly just beats its jokes to within an inch of their very short lives.

Cute and exasperating and, in the end, not nearly lunatic enough; it's a Christopher Guest movie without the fangs.

A British import that proves how dangerous improvisation can be when not handled with proper care.

Weak-tea...with tepid gags, lazy plotting, and scenarios that are mostly too unpleasant to be funny.

...doesn't have a whole lot to offer in terms of laughs or even character development...

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

... feels like a television idea that hasn't really got the muscle to pull it on to the big screen.

I'm sure there are reality show creators who are kicking themselves for not thinking of this idea first.

'Confetti' does not come remotely close to its predecessors in terms of clever satire or witty dialogue.

Gloss and stupid, the film was made without a script, which is a good idea almost never.
