Three weddings, One winner... Hundreds of reasons to stay single!
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 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.
