“Thrown away in the wind”

ProStruggling here....!

ConsA bad example of British comedy in every way

Ah the good old British comedy strikes again, ploughing the same furrow as pretty much every other one that had come since the mega success of Four Weddings and a Funeral (Sean of the Dead apart). For some reason British comedy desperately trying to duplicate Richard Curtis’ successful formula...

ConsToo Long, Not Funny Enough

I love British comedies and I also love weddings so when the film confetti came out and it was British and about people trying to come up with the most original wedding, the film sounded right up my street. We rented it and although I found the film quite entertaining I didn't think it was as...

Confetti When I first saw trailers for this months ago (April I think) I thought it looked like there was quite a bit of potential there and was going to see it at the cinema when it came out. It then turned out that I was out of the country when it was released, and I only just got around to...

Pro Great improvised film! British Comedy!

Cons None!

Confetti, 2006, Rating 15, Running time 100 Min I love this film! It is brilliant!

I also love the fact that it is a British film with British actors showing...

ConsBasic and will not appeal to non-Brits

What do you get when you cross a horde of British TV comedy stars with a ridiculous plot about marriage? The answer? A surprisingly funny yet absolutely ludicrous film that somehow manages to make me want to watch it again, although I am at a loss at to why!!!! The Plot Confetti (2006) is an...

Product Information : Son Cubano [Goldies] - Various Artists

Manufacturer's product description

An improvised mockumentary comedy that sees three couples attempt to win a magazine competition to find the 'Most Original Wedding of the Year'. After the wedding competition is set up by the owner of Confetti magazine - played by the comedian Jimmy Carr, three couples are chosen to compete in the finals and the film charts their progress as they attempt to win their dream marriage. Couple one--comprised of Martin Freeman (THE OFFICE) and Jessica Stevenson (SPACED)--intend to have a musical wedding. Couple two--comprised of the PEEPSHOW duo Robert Webb and Olivia Coleman--are nudists. The third couple of Stephen Mangan (GREEN WING) and Meredith MacNeill (MAN STROKE WOMAN) are obsessed with tennis. This entertaining comedy is notable for its mockumentary style and use of improvised dialogue, a device used by Christopher Guest in the films THIS IS SPINAL TAP and BEST IN SHOW. The film features appearances by several actors familiar from British comedies, such as Felicity Montagu (I'M ALAN PARTRIDGE) and Julia Davis (NIGHTY NIGHT). This frequently amusing, breezy film is a romantic comedy that manages to bring new dimensions to the genre and the use of improvised dialogue adds a freshness to it. Relying on sharp character humour, CONFETTI manages to combine its spoof documentary style and use of a traditional British romantic comedy narrative successfully.
