Movie Info

Soulmates Alexandra (Talulah Riley) and Jeremy (Matthew McNulty) are getting married. At least that's the plan. Unfortunately for them, nonchalant best man Peter (Noel Clarke), bridesmaid Sarah (Mena Suvari) and an army of naysayers haven't heard they're meant to be together. Can missing bridesmaids, crashed cars, a trip to A&E, and a delivery of pigs testicles stand in the way of true love


Critic Reviews for The Knot

  • The Knot finds a bumbling groomsman fishing for silver wedding bands in a diarrhea-filled toilet bowl. Viewers searching for moments of wit or insight ... might relate.

  • Almost everything is reduced to gross-out moments that are about as funny as a yak's poo so that when love conquers all in the end you don't believe it for a moment.

  • There are some gross-out toilet moments that I suspect are inspired by the recent US hit Bridesmaids, but that movie had laughs and a lot of heart. The Knot, sadly, has neither.

  • 'The Knot' mostly plumps for the usual clichés and stereotypes.

  • The film falls almost entirely flat on its face at every turn, the only saving grace being its mercifully short 92 minute runtime.

  • Clearly intent on being a British Hangover/Bridesmaids hybrid, this comedy romp doesn't contain a single laugh. It doesn't help that all of the characters are deeply unlikeable, or that the humour is literally centred in the toilet.

    It wasn't horrible, but nothing special either. I guess I am bored with wedding movies and though the cover compares it to Bridesmaids, it's nowhere near as funny. Cast are mostly okay, though a few are horrible. Has the feel of a low budget movie. The only "star" was Mena Suvari, and she's out of place as an american in this English movie. Though I intended to switch it off several times, it somehow didn't happen, so I did watch all of it. I can't honestly say if I am glad I did or not, but I guess it had a few moments mixed in there! Probably the gross out stuff, such as the bride on the toilet, could have been omitted.
