This British romantic comedy is one part Bridesmaids, one part A Few Best Men and one part The Wedding Video, so it's maybe not the most original film you'll ever see. But if you can ignore the ill-judged slapstick and daft plot developments, it makes for diverting enough entertainment. Alexandra (Talulah Riley) and Jeremy (Matthew McNulty) are about to get married, but the pre-ceremony preparations are going anything but smoothly: a bridesmaid runs off with a male stripper; the best man drops the ring down the toilet; and the groom's psycho ex-girlfriend is suspected of sending a jar of testicles as a wedding present. These and other scenes are so obviously signposted that you may feel as though you've seen it all before, but with its decent production values and likeable cast, led by Noel Clarke (who co-wrote the script) and Mena Suvari, The Knot remains watchable throughout.

Plot Summary

A bride and groom awake from their wild stag and hen parties preparing to face the big day. However, a series of unforeseen disasters looks set to keep them from the altar, and both the best man and one of the bridesmaids seem determined to make things worse. Comedy, starring Matthew McNulty, Talulah Riley, Noel Clarke and Mena Suvari.
