Review

Our Score
A host of faces from the alternative end of the sitcom spectrum stars in this "mockumentary" from writer/director Debbie Isitt. Martin Freeman (The Office) and Jessica Stevenson (Spaced) play the musical stars who are one of three couples battling it out to stage a wedding magazine's most original nuptials. Fellow contestant Robert Webb (Peep Show) is an ardent naturist who proposes a nude wedding, and as such is reduced to flashing the family jewels for easy laughs - amusing the first time, but Isitt takes an inch and tries to stretch it a mile, as it were. Stephen Mangan (Episodes) finds a good slant as a washed-up tennis player bent on victory, but even this storyline flounders as the big day dawns and the action takes off into bizarre realms. Essentially a series of improvised scenarios, this does provide a few funny moments, but too often feels meandering and obvious. Ultimately, Confetti is all over the place.

Summary

Three couples compete for the title of Most Original Wedding of the Year, with a film crew following the preparations. Theatre-loving Matt and Sam plan a musical marriage, naturists Michael and Joanna brave the elements for their all-nude nuptials, while fiercely competitive Josef and Isabelle warm up for a sporty ceremony. Spoof documentary, starring Martin Freeman, Jessica Hynes, Robert Webb, Olivia Colman, Stephen Mangan and Meredith MacNeill.
