Each couple es with a themed wedding (tennis, Busby Berkley musical, naturalists). Sound stupid? It is. And un-funny.
The wedding planner duo raised a giggle or two, and the couple ing for the musical styled wedding (Martin Freeman - Tim from tv's 'The Office' and Jessica Stevenson) had their moments. The naturalists' scenes show plenty of breasts & penises wobbling, which is pretty funny at first. Freeman is the best of the lot, and steals the film's only memorable scene in which he fires up at his soon-to-be mother-in-law.
The script's improvised, but it doesn't feel anymore spontaneous or humorous because of it, just flabby. Despite being swiftly paced and boasting great individual talent, none of it really clicks and there isn't any where near enough laughs or believable romance to hold it together.

That being said, it had some excellent characters with great acting and I did giggle a number of times. The two wedding planners were a highlight along with the huge nostrils of the female tennis player!
Got a bit "lovey dovey" towards the end which was unexpected... More but still enjoyed it.Hide
The funny moments are there, but are too sporadic. It's a shame, because it has the potential to be great for both men & women - but somehow it fell short.
I think the BBC review has it right in saying "mistakes weird for funny". Husband and I were slightly amused, but quickly fort about it.
