Confetti

Confetti

Confetti
A British rom-com that tries to add a little spice to the genre by having the actors improvise the script, & using the well-worn mockumentary technique.

It follows three couples, as they plan and execute their wedding, in a magazine-sponsored competition for 'Most Original Wedding of the Year'. Aided by two professional wedding planners, each couple es with a themed ceremony appropriate to their lifestyle or passions - one's a Busby Berkley musical, another uses a tennis motif, and the last couple are nudists. As the big day draws near stress levels rise, tempers boil, and calamity ensues.

Reviews & comments

Light and fanciful

Concept idea was good and it started off well. However became a bit predictable though there were some good laughs. Pretty obvious who was going to win to suit the magazine tho. Wife thought it was great but for me just something to while away an hour or so.

Quite funny but not laugh out loud funny...

I enjoyed Confetti but figured I would after seeing the trailers. The mockumentary was good but didn't quite compare to the features of Christopher Guest (who is the maestro of the genre - see Best in Show or A Mighty Wind). That being said, it had some excellent characters with great acting and I did giggle a number of times. The two wedding planners...

Not worth the admission fee.

A weak attempt and an amatuerish outcome. If you offered -stars this would have been my first allocation below 0. Poor story line (even thats an overstatement), mediocre acting, no real laughs, what else can I say.

Fine individual talents with crack timing. But compared with the tightly-knit ensemble in Guest's pic, individual members of the "Confetti" team seem to have slightly differing comic agendas...

Although it tends to the ridiculous at times rather than the witty, anyone who has been through planning a wedding will find something amusing in this film...

Glossy and stupid, the film was made without a script, which is a good idea almost never. The story is about three couples entering a contest run by Confetti Magazine to find which of them are willing to make the biggest fools of themselves in order to win a free wedding and a nice house...

One would have hoped for tighter content, more pointed and more consistent in tone. Still, even if you won?t be quoting it the next day, it?ll keep you laughing from start to finish...
