Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Frivolous stuff, but there's a sour edge to the silliness, with far more gay panic colouring the jokes than you'd expect from the director of 'The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.'"
‑ Guy Lodge, Time Out
"A largely unfunny blend of frantic farce and gross-out humour."
‑ John Ferguson, Radio Times
"When it eventually does let loose and go for some big gross out laughs - like feeding a sheep laxatives - it starts to work, but it's too little too late."
‑ Alex Zane, Sun Online
"No question this is dumb and derivative and the characters are generally obnoxious but it's raucous, energetic and enlivened by a game Olivia Newton-John ..."
‑ Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express
"Director Stephan Elliott made The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert but here he doesn't seem to know his farce from his elbow."
‑ Caroline Jowett, Daily Express
"From most vantage points, A Few Best Men seems like a real movie. It has a "story," "characters," & even scenes that superficially appear to contain "jokes," but many sketches are ultimately just that; sketches that stop short of offering moments of wit."
‑ Richard Haridy, Quickflix
"This Australian Hangover-style ensemble comedy strains so hard to be funny that it barely raises a smile"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"When embarrassment fails to be funny, it ends up as truly excruciating, and such is the case here."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"In a nutshell, it's just another foul-mouthed, British-flavoured wedding movie with a cast of uncouth young men trying to be as rude as possible."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
"There isn't one single laugh here for anyone who doesn't think that women are disgusting, men are morons, homosexuality is terrifying, and friendship is about cruelty and envy."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"An out-and-out failure."
‑ Niki Boyle, The List
"Director Elliott (Priscilla Queen of the Desert) tells this story with an odd combination of tourist-bureau style backdrops and full-on slapstick mayhem"
‑ Rich Cline, Contactmusic.com
"This stomach-churningly dreadful film proves that our friends in the Southern Hemisphere can scrape corners of the barrel inaccessible to even the most fetid American imaginations."
‑ Donald Clarke, Irish Times
"A Few Best Men leaves logic standing at the altar as its two dimensional characters stumble from one faux pas to the next."
‑ , Liverpool Echo
"What must have seemed at some point in production to be charming and hilarious arrives on screen as neither of those things."
‑ Phelim O'Neill, Guardian
