Review: A Few Best Men

It’s quite ironic that A Few Best Men is set at a wedding…because, quite frankly, I’ve been to funnier funerals.

Promoted as the “British version of The Hangover”, A Few Best Men follows the exploits of David Locking (Xavier Samuel), an orphaned individual who finds love on the remotest of islands courtesy of Australian native Mia Ramme (Laura Brent). After a week-long romance, David proposes to Mia and plans are made for them to wed within the confides of Mia’s rather scenic home back in Australia. After informing his friends, David and his ‘Best Men’ – Tom (Kris Marshall), Graham (Kevin Bishop) and Luke (Tim Draxl) – travel across to Australia to celebrate the upcoming nuptials, unaware of the influence or importance of Mia’s family, the Rammes.

Of course, in true Hangover style, things don’t quite go to plan – a combination of drugs, drink and one

A Few Best Men Review

Director: Stephen Elliot

Starring: Xavier Samuel, Kris Marshall, Kevin Bishop, Laura Brent, Olivia Newton-John

Running time: 91 minutes

Certificate: 15

Synopsis: David (Samuel) and Mia (Laura Brent) meet on holiday and decide to get married, which prompts David to journeys to Australia days later for the wedding with his three best friends in tow. But once at the wedding, all hell breaks loose…

The first of two wedding themed comedies to be released in cinemas this summer, A Few Best Men is not a particularly great start. Taking its cue from films like Meet The Parents, this British-Australian co-production is a film that lacks both originality and laughs. Essentially, it’s just Meet The Parents – but set in Australia, and with more then one clumsy character.

The plot? Two wooden lovers with little character development or personality decide to get married after spending a week together on an island. They go to

Stephan Elliott on A Few Best Men

Stephan Elliott is a multi-tasker. For most of his career, he has juggled both writing and directing duties and now, while on the phone with If, he is in the middle of sweeping his house.

If A Few Best Men seems like a change of pace, it isn't. Although the script was written by Dean Craig (Death at a Funeral), the film's producers gave the director the freedom to contribute his own rewrites.

"There's an awful lot of me in there," he says. "Dean took care of the English and I took care of the Australian."

Elliott first read the script after being persuaded by producer Gary Hamilton.

"I haven't read other people's scripts for years because I basically develop my own," he says. "So he kind of got me in an evil, manipulative way and talked me into reading it."

(For the record, Hamilton's dastardly attack plan involved seeing

DVD Review: Red Canyon

Red Canyon

Guest review by Dog Ate My Wookie

Stars: Christine Lakin, Justin Hartley, Katie Maguire, Tim Draxl | Written by Giovanni Rodriguez, Laura Pratt | Directed by Giovanni Rodriguez

Justin Hartley, he’s starred in the past couple of seasons of Smallville, he’s competent in his craft and obviously he’s looking for a little more exposure but why on earth would he pick a half assed project like this?

Xavier Samuel to Star in ‘A Few Best Men’

Xavier Samuel to Star in ‘A Few Best Men’
The Hollywood Reporter has some great news about Eclipse vampire, Xavier Samuel. Xavier has just gotten a lead in a new comedy, A Few Best Men. Read more below:

Sydney — After a trio of horror films including Twilight: Eclipse, The Loved Ones and Bait 3D, Xavier Samuel is turning his hand to comedy, signing on for the lead in Stephan Elliott’s latest feature film, A Few Best Men.

Samuel will star as David, the English groom, in the film which Elliot bills as the latest in “a hugely successful emerging genre — wedding movies for boys.” (Think, The Hangover down under.)

In the film David and his three best men travel to the Australian outback for a destination wedding that is as funny as it is disastrous.

“The girls get the big day. The boys get to sabotage it. And boy I am gonna have some fun,” said Elliot, who’s returned to Australia to make his first feature here in over a decade.

Also starring are Olivia Newton-John as the mother of the bride, British actors Kris Marshall and Kevin Bishop and Aussies Laura Brent, Tim Draxl and Steve Le Marquand.
