A British-Australian 'comedy' based around a featureless groom (Xavier Samuel as David) and his moronic mates, A Few Best Men is a wedding-com with fewer laughs than most funerals.

Directed by Stephan Elliott (a long way from career highlight Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert ), it sees Tim Draxl, Kevin Bishop and Kris Marshall inadvertently turn David’s wedding to Aussie Mia (Laura Brent) into a disaster zone.

Chucking cocaine, sheep shit and a wildly overacting Olivia Newton-John at you, its desperate efforts to ape The Hangover come with but one redeeming feature – it finally ends.
