Movie Info

Soulmates Alexandra (Talulah Riley) and Jeremy (Matthew McNulty) are getting married. At least that's the plan. Unfortunately for them, nonchalant best man Peter (Noel Clarke), bridesmaid Sarah (Mena Suvari) and an army of naysayers haven't heard they're meant to be together. Can missing bridesmaids, crashed cars, a trip to A&E, and a delivery of pigs testicles stand in the way of true love

Critic Reviews for The Knot

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (2)

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.

Full Review… | October 7, 2012

An offensive anthology of every loud, lewd and loathsome wedding joke staged or screened between The Taming of the Shrew and The Hangover.

Observer (UK)

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.

Audience Reviews for The Knot


This has a few too many pranks and problems to be realistic, but it is still good for a laugh and a happily-ever-after story.

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.
