David meets Mia on holiday and they fall in love and intend to marry. The only problem is that she is in Australia and he is in London but, undeterred, with his three best friends he sets off for Mia’s father’s mansion in the Blue Mountains, north of Sydney. Can the wedding go off smoothly considering the fact that the bride’s father’s favourite possesion is a sheep, the bride’s mother gets high on cocaine, the best men are drunk, on drugs and having a job to get their words together, and that one of them has to make the best man speech?
Mostly scenes at the bride’s father’s mansion with a stunning backdrop of the mountains, the young men travel on a cheap flight which takes them most of the way round the world, they buy drugs from a criminal and accidentally take his stash and his hand guns, they wake up on the wedding day in various states of disarray, making us wonder what they have been up to and incidents occur at the wedding.
|A View||I have, over the last couple of years since I have started watching films in order to review them, seen some pretty bad stuff, and this outing is right up there with the worst. It is sort of “The Hangover” without the jokes. Indeed there was an impression as I watched it that there could have been some sort of raunchy humour, but that it had either not been actioned or had been cut. The result was something you would not want to see, so it is an “Almost Don’t See”.|
