A Few Best Men

Australian-British prenuptial comedy from the writer of Death at a Funeral and the director of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, about a wedding that hurtles into havoc when the groom’s incompetent 'best men' arrive.

After English chap David (Xavier Samuel, Twilight: Eclipse) announces his impulsive engagement to Aussie lass Mia (Laura Brent), his three mates (Kris Marshall, Kevin Bishop, Tim Draxl) dedicate themselves to attending his marriage in Sydney. Despite good intentions, the inept trio cause a chaotic, culture-clashing chain-reaction of disasters.

The following is an extract from theaterofthecommonman.com Riding the success of The Hangover franchise and it's tale of drunken debauchery, 'A Few Best Men' feels at best a misfired imitation. Three British chums are disturbed to learn their fellow mate David (Xavier Samuel) has fallen in love and become engaged to an Australian girl, Mia (Laura Bent)....
