Trivia

The film was acted out as an improvisation and was shot entirely in chronological order. The actors were not even given call-sheets in order to increase the film's sense of unknowing and the improvisational style. Director of photography, Dewald Aukema explains that "The film is very versatile, as there is no strict script, it is interesting that anything could happen in a particular take, and it could be used effectively in production, it's really up to the actors how they develop the scene and their characters."

Fantastic MOCUMENTARY ! -much like Christopher Guest films .

Can I just say that I love this film, in the same way that I love Waiting For Guffman and Best In Show. It made me laugh out loud and it made me wince with embarrassment for the characters. A BRILLIANT cast of British comedy actors deliver deadpan dialogue in this highly amusing mockumentary.

Now, I noticed some posts said "Americans won't get the "Brittish humor", that couldn't be farther from the truth! Im an American and a big fan of "good mocumentarys" and this film certainly ranked right up there at the cream of the crop of comedy.

There's Matt and Sam who want a Hollywood musical wedding in the style of Busby Berkley.

Josef and Isabelle who are highly competitive tennis players who want a Wimbledon-style wedding.

Michael and Joanne who want to get married in the buff because they're naturists.

The fourth and funniest couple are wedding planners Heron & Hough, Excessively camp who describe themselves as "mad as cheese". They have the most difficult job of trying to make each couple's dream become reality. Each character was more twisted than the next including the competition organizer Vivien and Antoni who were duly concerned about the size of Isabelle's nostrils, and the cat fighting sister and mother of Sam.

Political correctness should take a back seat and say "I DO" to this highly exaggerated comedy of errors. 10 out of 10.
