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).

Though it feels like it should be funnier, it is a smiley and amusing affair full of happy endings and goodwill.
September 23, 2006
It's inspired, glorious chaos.
September 23, 2006
Confetti may be mostly forgettable, but like bubbly at a wedding, the impression it leaves is light and effervescent.
September 22, 2006
There's some genuine heart here, particularly in Sam and Matt's subplot.
September 22, 2006
A deliciously mean and fluffy little mockumentary.
September 22, 2006
Featuring actors largely unknown here, it's filled with positive energy and wit and, eventually, warmth.
September 22, 2006
It is ultimately involving as a portrait of couples bound by the vulnerabilities that brought them together in the first place.

The final ceremonies are also winning, the Naturist Wedding in particular so surprisingly moving and emotional I actually had to dip into my purse for some Kleenex.
September 21, 2006
Overall, Confetti is agreeable and appropriately daft, though occasionally tepid and contrived.
September 21, 2006
The humor is sweet-spirited, the dialogue (all improvised by the cast) is acerbic and witty, the celebration of unbridled tackiness is often hilarious.
September 21, 2006
The climactic scenes possess an irresistible charm, as each wedding turns out to be just perfect.
September 21, 2006
It gradually becomes clear that Confetti is funny because it views its flawed, crazy characters with real affection.
September 21, 2006
The savvy British actors sweating for our amusement in Debbie Isitt's comedy, a fairly funny mockumentary-style lark about a magazine-sponsored wedding competition, fare better than their self-generated material.
September 21, 2006
Confetti has an innate sweetness -- especially when it comes to Archibald and Gregory, the most endearing of all the twosomes.
September 21, 2006
[Confetti] has a few great lines and a knack for sweeping you off your feet with surprisingly intimate romantic moments.
