Confetti | 2006 | R | - 7.3.5

British mockumentary that follows three couples participating in a bridal magazine competition that will award the winning couple with the title of Most Original Wedding of the Year and a new house. With Martin Freeman, Jessica Stevenson, Jimmy Carr, Alison Steadman and Felicity Montagu. Directed by Debbie Isitt. [1:40]

SEX/NUDITY 7 - There are many scenes that feature "naturalists," who are fully nude (female and male naturalists are seen, and bare breasts, bare buttocks, pubic regions and penises are all visible). During a naturalist wedding the bride and groom wear sheer robes (the silhouettes of their bodies are visible and as they walk away from us their bare buttocks are visible); other men in the wedding party wear thong-type coverage that reveal bare buttocks and men and women in the audience are fully nude (bare breasts, bare buttocks, pubic regions and penises are all visible). During a meeting with several other people a man removes all of his clothes (his bare chest, penis and buttocks are all visible).
 We see photos of a woman in dance costumes that reveal cleavage, bare abdomen and legs. Women in a dance routine pull off their skirts to reveal shorts underneath, as well as their legs. A man lies in a bathtub, he is covered to the shoulders with bubbles, and two other men enter the room (the man in the tub appears uncomfortable with their being in the room). A woman wears a low-cut dress that reveals cleavage.
 A man and a woman kiss in several scenes. Men and women dance together and one couple kiss.
 A man and a woman get on an elevator, and when the doors open again they both appear disheveled: he has his jacket off and is adjusting his shirt and she is tugging at her skirt and shoe implying that something sexual may have occurred.
 A man is jealous of the attention another man pays to his fiancée and makes several comments about him: in one scene he says, "He's interested in getting inside you," and in another he says, "he doesn't touch anyone as much as he touches my fiancée." A man makes reference to "The Joy of Sex."
 A man proposes marriage to another man. A man introduces himself and says, "I am not gay."

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Two men shove each other, swing at each other, and one tackles the other to the ground and they roll around.
 A woman has a bandage on her nose after rhinoplastic surgery.
 Several people argue angrily, a woman yells at two men, a man and a woman argue, and a man yells that a competition was rigged.
 A young woman describes a ceremony that includes the sacrifice of a pig.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
