Product Description

Say "I do" to this hilarious "mockumentary" about a trio of wacky couples who vow to win the coveted title of "Most Original Wedding of the Year." The dueling duos include the tuneless Matt (Martin Freeman) and Sam (Jessica Stevenson) whose unfortunate wedding theme is Hollywood musicals; the hypercompetitive tennis partners Josef (Steven Mangan) and Isabelle (Meredith MacNeil), and the outrageously uninhibited nudists Michael (Robert Webb) and Joanna (Olivia Colman). At stake is a million-dollar dream home, but can love survive in the midst of unbridled prenupital chaos?

Amazon.com

For mockumentary fans and devotees of the BBC series The Office and Christopher Guest movies (such as Best In Show), Confetti is a treat. Confetti watches much like the aforementioned programs, chronicling three couples competing to win the fictional Confetti Magazine's 'Most Original Wedding of the Year' contest. The task of winning the contest is assigned to one set of wedding planners who must bring the three vastly different couples up to speed with their three different wedding themes: tennis, a Hollywood musical and a nudist wedding. Families, best friends, the magazine staff and the couples' ideas and words collide, as everyone wants their influence in the festivities. The movie's style feels familiar enough, with the improve dialogue and uncomfortable situations it delivers, and it helps that it stars The Office's Martin Freeman (a.k.a Tim), who brings his impeccably timed facial expressions with him. Confetti is pure entertainment with the dry wit that makes this genre so comical, while hosting some genuine, lovely and heartfelt moments.--Rachel Moss

Format: DVD
This British-made and very comic mockumentary portrays the conflicts and potential mayhem inherent in the run-up to any wedding and multiplies it by not three but about ten, as a wedding magazine launches a self-promoting competition among three couples for the most unusual marriage ceremony.

Here everyone is at loggerheads, including the editors of the magazine, and the pair of wedding planners who attempt to pull it all off with a paltry budget and the less than enthusiastic cooperation of all involved. Very much in the spirit of Christopher Guest's "Waiting for Guffman," which helped create the genre, this hugely enjoyable film eventually sweeps all promise of disaster aside and ends triumphantly with all the excitement of - well, a Busby Berkeley musical.

The DVD has at least a half hour of additional scenes as entertaining as the rest of the movie. There are also three alternative endings, plus filmographies of much of the cast. Look for Martin Freeman, from BBC's "The Office," as one of the beleaguered bridegrooms.

I just finished watching the British film, "Confetti" and my sides and cheeks are still aching from the laughter and smiles it produced.

The film's style is "mockumentary" similar to Best in Show, A Mighty Wind, etc. - and cleverly done.

The premise: a British bridal magazine selects three couples to have their "dream" wedding performed as part of a contest/live reality show, the winning couple getting a new, halfl million pound house.

Couple One: Josef and Isabelle. Professional tennis players, he on the way out and she with a flaring nostril problem. He's an abusive, royal ass with a chip on his shoulder bigger than his brain, and she, the poor dear, a complete disaster. They want to have a tennis themed wedding with dancing ball boys, giant tennis balls, vows done as serves and volleys and . . . you get the picture.

Couple Two: Michael and Joanna. Naturists who want to celebrate their nuptials with their dangly bits on display. The magazine deeply regrets this selection. (Note: there is buttloads of nudity with these two and their naturist community - all nonsexual, but prudish types be forewarned!)

Couple Three: Matt and Samantha. A sweet, nudgey-pair wanting an elaborate, 30's Hollywood musical number a la Busby Berkley. She is tone deaf, but loves to sing. Neither can dance.

All three couples have the same pair of coordinators to make their dreams come true, an exhuberant gay couple who are tested to their limits.

The film goes through the seven weeks (each announced with a nice title card) leading up to the Big Event, culminating in the three weddings and the announcement of the winner. The ride is bumpy, dark, emotional, hilarious and ultimately, kind of sweet.

I really enjoyed this movie.....my husband woke up from a nap because I was laughing so hard. You could call us "Guesties" (Best in Show is my all time pick-me-up) and after the disappointment of "For Your Consideration" I have been looking for a mockumentary that I could really get a belly laugh from. "Confetti" delivered and then some. I love the british accents and enjoy listening to the words in a movie...not just being played down to by cheap jokes. Funny movies can be intelligent and I applaud this one!

This movie is about a magazine contest that will throw a wedding for the three best ideas for your not so average wedding. Basically themed weddings. The wedding themes that win are a tennis themed wedding, a nudist themed wedding,and a musical wedding.

I liked the three themes that were picked, that is why we purchased this film. I also found it interesting that you can view the wedding that you would have liked to see win, instead of the default ending.

I am not sure if you would call this a romance film or a comedy, but I think most film buffs will enjoy the movie, especially the ability to choose the winner. There is some nudity, but this was a UK made film and they do not seemed to be as hung up on nudity like the U.S.

Before 2012, Olivia Coleman takes part in another mockumentary, but this one is about a crazy wedding competition. The film is a wonderful look at the insanity associated with over the top weddings and the desire of couples to have the "best" wedding.

This is a great movie, but if you are averse to full frontal nudity of both sexes not in sexual acts or homosexual relationships also not in sexual acts it is not for you.

It is hilarious the basic plot is about 2 wedding planners who have to arrange weddings for 3 couples who win a magazine contest for a theme wedding on a budget.

Addendum. I did not mean in any way that gay relationships are funny. The relationship is touching and sweet. The funny part is trying to plan the weddings .
