The Knot finds a bumbling groomsman fishing for silver wedding bands in a diarrhea-filled toilet bowl. Viewers searching for moments of wit or insight ... might relate.
'The Knot' mostly plumps for the usual clichés and stereotypes.
Clearly intent on being a British Hangover/Bridesmaids hybrid, this comedy romp doesn't contain a single laugh. It doesn't help that all of the characters are deeply unlikeable, or that the humour is literally centred in the toilet.
An offensive anthology of every loud, lewd and loathsome wedding joke staged or screened between The Taming of the Shrew and The Hangover.
If you can ignore the ill-judged slapstick and daft plot developments, it makes for diverting enough entertainment.
The Knot is the wedding movie to end all wedding movies - because if this isn't the end of a trend, heaven help us.
Bridesmaids, The Hangover and countless others have adequately covered the same territory and The Knot feels like a poor, cartoon-like imitation.
Almost everything is reduced to gross-out moments that are about as funny as a yak's poo so that when love conquers all in the end you don't believe it for a moment.
I would have happily jilted The Knot at the altar.
All the film-makers do is show us things that raised a laugh in other movies - a bride with diarrhoea, lads vomiting, a little girl emitting obscenities.
There are some gross-out toilet moments that I suspect are inspired by the recent US hit Bridesmaids, but that movie had laughs and a lot of heart. The Knot, sadly, has neither.
Has the slapdash, half-finished quality of a high-school play, or perhaps a home video in which everyone involved is convinced that what they are creating is hilarious. In fact, it is not only unfunny and tedious but also hugely unpleasant.
It wasn't horrible, but nothing special either. I guess I am bored with wedding movies and though the cover compares it to Bridesmaids, it's nowhere near as funny.
Cast are mostly okay, though a few are horrible. Has the feel of a low budget movie. The only "star" was Mena Suvari, and she's out of place as an american in this English movie.
Though I intended to switch it off several times, it somehow didn't happen, so I did watch all of it. I can't honestly say if I am glad I did or not, but I guess it had a few moments mixed in there!
Probably the gross out stuff, such as the bride on the toilet, could have been omitted.
