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.

Confetti is the latest mockumentary to encounter the problem of reality, or reality TV, being more outrageous than the filmmaker's send-up.
September 25, 2006
Moderately amusing, but rather wan when compared to really inspired mockumentaries.

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
A few laughs are right on target; others go over or under it; and most are fairly predictable.
September 22, 2006
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.
September 22, 2006
As is typical of many weddings, the planning drags, and so does the movie.
September 22, 2006
With barely a laugh to be found, Confetti takes the 'mock' right out of the mockumentary.
September 22, 2006
A British import that proves how dangerous improvisation can be when not handled with proper care.
September 22, 2006
Cute and exasperating and, in the end, not nearly lunatic enough; it's a Christopher Guest movie without the fangs.
September 22, 2006
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.
September 22, 2006
I'm sure there are reality show creators who are kicking themselves for not thinking of this idea first.
September 22, 2006
'Confetti' does not come remotely close to its predecessors in terms of clever satire or witty dialogue.
September 22, 2006
A more assured hand could have made it better.
September 21, 2006
Confetti fires off the occasional good line, but it mostly just beats its jokes to within an inch of their very short lives.
September 21, 2006
...doesn't have a whole lot to offer in terms of laughs or even character development...
September 18, 2006
Confetti imparts one very important lesson: The Christopher Guest-style comedy of improvised mockumentary is not a genre to be entered into lightly.
