We gave it a B-

A British bridal mag’s search for the most original wedding falls to pieces as the couples with the top three themes — tennis nuptials, musical nuptials, nudist nuptials — ready their ”I do”s. The tennis groom plays dirty. The musical bride can’t sing. And the snaggletoothed nudists — surprise! — won’t wear any clothes.
The EXTRAS let you pick your own winner. Otherwise, Confetti plays like every other Brit mockumentary: gay jokes and self-contempt improvised in direct address by actors you’d know only if you were addicted to BBC America.
