The Wedding Video
Bridal tap

Plot
As bride-to-be Saskia (Punch) and her prospective groom Tim (Webb) struggle to get their heads around their big society wedding - unicorns, ice sculptures and personalised ring pillows and all - Tim's roguish brother Raif (Hound) announces his intention to film it all.


Review
The Wedding Video
This surprisingly agreeable British wedding comedy stars a likable Rufus Hound as the errant brother and dangerous best man to Robert Webb’s more staid groom-to-be. Hound’s irrepressibly fun joker decides his gift will be to film the fraught build-up to the OTT society wedding, in the process witnessing or creating all manner of indiscretions, rivalries, mishaps and alcohol-fuelled shenanigans. After a hilarious first half it flags a bit, rescued by wedding day disaster and one of the best wedding speeches ever. Bride Lucy Punch is delightful and a born comedienne, but everyone is on their toes. Cute, and quite funny.


Verdict
Not quite Four Weddings-funny but always entertaining and endearing in equal measure. Less so if you're preparing for a wedding.

Better than I'd expected.

Ultimately, I found The Wedding Video funny. To the point where I laughed out loud a lot. And that's the point, right? If this film had come out of one of the Hollywood majors, it would have been so much more hard work. Uh-oh, I smell a re-make already. Has anyone got Paul Rudd's number? ... More
