TREVOR HEATON, EDP Whats On Editor

Fast-talking comic Jimmy Carr notches up his second film appearance in only a couple of weeks in Confetti, a wedding comedy with a difference.

He plays the amoral publisher of the eponymous wedding magazine, who tempts three lots of soon-to-weds to fight it out to win Confetti Magazine's competition for the Most Original Wedding of the Year. At stake is a £500,000 dream house, a cover shoot with Confetti and, of course, the most special day of their lives.

A peach of a cast - Martin Freeman (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Office), Jessica Stevenson (Spaced, The Royle Family), Stephen Mangan (Green Wing), Robert Webb (Peep Show), Felicity Montagu (I'm Alan Partridge), Carr and Alison Steadman (Topsy Turvy, Life is Sweet) - make this Debbie Isitt-penned and -directed effort well worth checking out.

We follow couples Matt and Samantha (Freeman and Stevenson), Josef and Isabelle (Mangan and Meredith MacNeill) and Michael and Joanna (Webb and Olivia Colman), from the excitement of being chosen as finalists through the eventful weeks of preparation to the Grand Final.

Top wedding planners Heron and Hough (Vincent Franklin and Jason Watkins) are on hand to help turn the couples' dreams into reality (and provide the occasional understanding shoulder or two to cry on).

This script and acting is largely improvised - but don't let you put you off because the cast features plenty of fast-thinking and witty performers.

Steadman, for example, has appeared in Mike Leigh films and can do this sort of thing standing on her head.
