REVIEW:

Confetti (dir. Debbie Isitt) is a British mockumentary that gave up-rising television comedians the opportunity to appear in a feature length film. Even though the idea was interesting enough to do a mockumentary and that there was no screenplay written for it, this is simply bland and with two of the cast members stating that “the finished film is a complete mess”, you know what to expect in this review.

With the initial concept of the story done by director Debbie Isitt, it serves as a concept that sounds good on paper and one that could’ve been good for the big screen if it was directed well.

Owner of Confetti wedding magazine, Antony (Jimmy Carr) and the magazine’s editor-in-chief Vivian (Felicity Montagu) decide to do a competition for most original wedding of the year to raise more publicity for their magazine. Three couple finalists are selected for the competition and the chance to win a luxury house and these strange people include musical theatre lovers Matt (Martin Freeman) and Sam (Jessica Hynes), tennis fanatics Josef (Stephen Mangan) and Isabelle (Meredith MacNeil) and naturists Michael (Robert Webb) and Joanna (Olivia Colman). With the selection decided, the competition is on and with only a few weeks to make the best dream wedding.

Because all three of the couples seem to be stereotyping the groups of people that they represent, it’s annoying to see how little they individually develop and to see nothing really happening that’s exciting for about hundred minutes. With the finale being the only honest highlight, it could’ve been directed better.

The most interesting out of the film’s offerings is the cast members being mainly involved in television and even though you’d think that they would do a decent job, they unfortunately fall completely flat.

For British audiences, the film’s appeal was seeing top comedic actors in one film and it was at the time the film was released gave the performers a great opportunity to be in a feature length film and be funny without the use of a screenplay. But when I first saw this film and thinking that it might be quite good, it was amazing to see how bad they were and it’s a shame too considering the fact that this included some of the best that British comedy had to offer.

As for the other cast members that weren’t comedic actors and actresses who appeared in quite dramatic television roles, they were probably better at their roles since it didn’t really need much to ask for. Like the comedy actors, these other actors and actresses were in numerous television programmes before and they don’t need to be criticised as much since they are only part of the supporting cast slot.

With the film under the direction of Debbie Isitt, she’s a director whose best known in the British film industry for using improvisation techniques in her films and in comparison to Nativity! (dir. Debbie Isitt).

Even though there was some improvisation in Nativity!, it was mostly scripted and it worked more with the fact that the cast had more to work with than doing stuff on the spot. The idea of having the entire improvised is a very interesting idea, but the direction and the way Isitt decided to edit the film just felt very messy and awkward in comparison to Nativity!.

Due to the lack of creativity in Confetti, it could’ve been a really good film if there was a bit more variety in the story and unfortunately, the overall result is very bland and I found it very annoying. But for women who like girly films, they might like this. Maybe.
