Britain is hardly shy of wedding-centred romantic comedies, but The Wedding Video does manage to find one or two new angles. The setup here is that Rufus Hound plays Raif, who’s asked to be best man for his brother, played by Robert Webb. Raif is one of those bumbling oafs who tend to inhabit such comedies, but his plan is to give his brother and his new wife a wedding of their video as a gift. What could go wrong there?

It all sets the scene for a down-to-earth, enjoyable romantic comedy, that gives room for its talent ensemble to thrive. Robert Webb is a good leading man, and Lucy Punch also gives a quality performance as his wife-to-be, Saskia. Miriam Margoyles is in scene-stealing form, too. Granted, at the heart is a fairly conventional spin on the genre, but director Nigel Cole finds enough in the material to keep things interesting and pacey.

The disc itself, on top of the main feature, bundles in a lengthy collection of interviews with the cast and crew of The Wedding Video. They don’t have anything particularly revolutionary to offer, but it’s interesting nonetheless. And it’s the warm, amiable and frequently funny film that remains, rightly, the main attraction here. Worth checking out. --Jon Foster

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as I thought it would be 10 Jan 2013
British comedies are hit and miss to say the least. My expectations were decidedly low for this one. I love Peep Show and will watch pretty much anything with Robert Webb (or David Mitchell) in it. However, when I watched `Confetti' (another Brit-com with Robert Webb in it) I was left severely disappointed that even he couldn't elevate it out of the doldrums.
The Wedding Video is, as you can probably guess, a `film' made in the deliberately documentary style of the first person. Rufus Hound plays `Raif' the long lost brother who returns to England when his brother, Tim (Robert Webb) is getting married.

Raif's `special' gift is a wedding video, charting the build up to the happy day - think `Blair Witch, but with witches is posh hats from Cheshire.'

The first thing I thought was how much Rufus Hound comes across as a cross between Simon Pegg and Ricky Gervais. His character is only one step away from being pretty damn annoying. However, in my (slightly biased) opinion, it's Robert Webb's character who saves it, as he doesn't suffer his annoying brother too gladly and frequently slaps him down when need be.

As you might imagine, the build up to the wedding goes about as smoothly as the wedding itself. There are a whole string of unfortunate and cringe-worthy events, captured on camera for our viewing pleasure.

The Wedding Video hasn't been that well received by people. I don't know what they were expecting. Granted it's hardly comedy gold, destined to become a future classic, but I found it certainly watchable enough for an hour and a half. There are a few good gags and the characters are actually quite amusing, especially the bride's mum who's totally obsessed with `outdoing' her friends when it comes to her daughter's big day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny film 16 Feb 2014
This film had me in stitches but it is very dry. First thing to remember is the film is meant to be a home movie, so cinematography reflects this and is done very well.
Secondly, the humour is very british and I have read some american reviews on websites .... they sometimes simply dont get it.
The film makes fun of the snobbery of the newly rich mother in law and the whole over elaboration of the wedding ceremony.
I loved this film, its british comedy at its best whilst elements actually pull at the heart strings. This film wont be everyones cup of tea, and you have to understand the humour .... but if you do get the humour, you will love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining 22 Jan 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We saw this film sometime ago at the cinema and enjoyed it enough to add it to our Christmas list. It stood the test of time and on second viewing was just as amusing and entertaining as the first time round.

3.0 out of 5 stars This was surprisingly funny 1 Dec 2013
I have just finished watching The Wedding Video! I found it really funny! I liked Lucy Punch, she is always funny & the actress who played her neurotic mother. But, really, everyone was good in their roles. As armchair critics, it is very easy for us to pass judgement. But just think - could you write a funny script? I couldn't - it would be so hard! I didn't get bored & had a good chuckle. I would recommend this film.
