Video nasty is full of laughs

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Books & DVD/BLU-RAY - The Wed­ding Video

WHEN the best man thinks it’ll be a piece of cake to make the happy cou­ple a video of their wed­ding as a gift, it turns into a mad­cap mar­riage dis­as­ter.

You couldn’t blame the up­tight groom Tim ( Robert Webb) and his bride Saskia ( Lucy Punch) if they vowed to throt­tle Tim’s brother Raif ( Ru­fus Hound) for what en­sues in this fly- on- the- wall com­edy.

The tid­ings are bad from the moment randy Raif first claps eyes on the bride and dis­cov­ers it’s sexy Saskia, and he’s had a crush on her since she was a sixth form siren, un­like to­day’s hoity- toity so­cial climber.

But that’s not the worst of the skele­tons rat­tling in the closet amidst wed­ding es­sen­tials like drunk­en­ness, agro and in­sults.

It isn’t a great start for Tim’s am­bi­tion to join Cheshire’s snooti­est set and im­press his fu­ture mother- in law Alex( Har­riet Wal­ter) who makes Hy­acinth Bucket ap­pear shy by com­par­i­son.

Not to men­tion the bride’s grumpy grandma ( Miriam Mar- golyes) who’s soon look­ing down her nose in dis­ap­proval as ev­ery­thing goes hay­wire in this off­beat rom- com from the di­rec­tor of Cal­en­dar Girls.
