September 30, 2006
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...
September 23, 2006
It's inspired, glorious chaos.
September 22, 2006
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.
September 22, 2006
A deliciously mean and fluffy little mockumentary.
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
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
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
The climactic scenes possess an irresistible charm, as each wedding turns out to be just perfect.
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 15, 2006
The problem with this pretend documentary about engaged couples competing for most over-the-top nuptials is that it comes perilously close to what's on reality TV.
September 15, 2006
Films, like weddings, need a certain amount of organization and a great deal of teamwork. This one seems like a dozen solo projects.
September 15, 2006
A strained, ultra-predictable and headache-inducing mockumentary.
September 15, 2006
Like the average best-man toast, Debbie Isitt's amiable mockumentary has many funny moments, a few touching ones and some that fall just slightly flat.
September 14, 2006
Comic timing, themes of tolerance and commitment and the marriage of farce and empathy lift the film above the mockumentary pack.
