A Few Best Men Review


Weak
Anyone who has seen either film version of Craig's previous script Death at a Funeral will immediately recognise the approach: madcap chaos at a family rite of passage. For a late-night screening when you definitely don't want to engage your brain, this approach might just keep you laughing. But sober audiences looking for an enjoyable comedy should steer clear.

At the centre are a blandly likeable couple, British David (Samuel) and Aussie Mia (Brent), who decide to get married. On the day before the wedding, David heads from London to Sydney with his three idiot friends: prankster Tom (Marshall), creepy Graham (Bishop) and the deeply depressed Luke (Draxl). While David meets Mia's establishment parents (Newton-John and Biggins) and rebellious sister (Wilson), his groomsmen get entangled with a seedy drug dealer (Le Marquand). Will they be able to sort out the mess before the marriage ceremony?

On David's return from his holiday, he announces to his friends Tom, Graham and Luke that he has met someone and is engaged to be married. They are shocked and not altogether happy about it but agree to give David a day to remember and together travel to Australia where the wedding is to take place. However, with bride-to-be Mia's coke-head mother, her father's transvestite sheep, a gimp mask, a dodgy drug dealer and a catastrophic stag-do, will David and Mia's wedding turn out to be a day they'd rather forget?

This hilarious Australian-British comedy is full of cringe-worthy moments and will most definitely attach a permanent smile to your face as Xavier Samuel ('Twilight: Eclipse'), Kris Marshall ('My Family', 'Love Actually'), Kevin Bishop ('The Kevin Bishop Show') and Tim Draxl ('Swimming Upstream') entertain you with all manner of disasters and misadventures.

The film is directed by Stephan Elliott ('Easy Virtue', 'The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert') and written by Dean Craig ('Death at a Funeral'). It is to be released on August 31st.

Starring: Xavier Samuel, Kris Marshall, Kevin Bishop, Tim Draxl, David Sullivan, Laura Brent, Olivia Newton-John, Rebel Wilson, Steve Le Marquand and Angela Bishop

Director: Stephan Elliott
