Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The premise wears thin after a while and the humor is hit-and-miss, but when it's on its game "The Wedding Video" can be laugh-out-loud funny."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"Supremely well-intentioned, low-budget British comedy which, with all the will in the world, a likeable cast can't quite power to greatness."
‑ Catherine Bray, Film4
"Except for a very silly ending, his film goes down as easily as a glass of bubbly."
‑ Stella Papamichael, Radio Times
"This wedding comedy ought to be funnier and more lively than it is.There is, however, a good idea at its centre."
‑ , This is London
"We get one or two outrageous sight gags and massive "getting progressively drunk" montages, and some neatly managed comedy on the laugh-with/laugh-at borderline."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"This homegrown romcom is pretty much doomed from the start."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"Still has lots of very funny moments and a realistic interpretation of the lengths some people go to when confronted by a camera lens and under ... pressure to perform."
‑ Lisa Giles-Keddie, HeyUGuys
"A compendium of every terrible wedding experience and joke you ever heard (including the bride's teenage reputation for drugs and promiscuity), it's crude, broad and moderately funny."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"The film amuses and charms in equal measure, relying on the comic timing of its ensemble British cast led by Rufus Hound."
‑ , Liverpool Echo
"It gets by more on goodwill than inspiration, but it's lightly amusing and well played."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"A fun little British romp."
‑ Clint O'Connor, Cleveland Plain Dealer
"It's not a bad production, but the excitement of its concept soon wears off - largely because wedding movies are so old hat these days. And who wears old hats at a wedding?"
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Post
"The found-footage gimmick has become a tired cliché in the horror genre but it receives a new jolt of energy in this sprightly romantic comedy thanks to the comic spark provided by a clutch of big-and-small screen British stars."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"It will all slide over painlessly when it turns up on television."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"Low on big laughs but remains enjoyable thanks to a consistently amusing script and strong comic performances from a talented cast, though it's also a little too predictable in places."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
