Watch: The Wedding Video 2012 123movies, Full Movie Online – Clumsy Raif Moyle returns to Cheshire for the wedding of his elder brother Tim to Saskia, their old school friend, who was something of a wild child in the past. To the mild consternation of Saskia’s socially-conscious mother Alex, Raif proposes that, in addition to his duties as best man, he will make a video of events leading up to and including the wedding. This means he spends a lot of time with Saskia and begins to realize that, beneath the surface, the happy event may turn out to be less than happy for all concerned. Fortunately, a wedding does eventually take place with surprises all round..
Plot: When the rogueish but loveable Raif is asked to be his brother Tim’s best man at his wedding, he decides the best present for the happy newlyweds would be to catch the entire thing on video. He returns home from abroad to find his brother is no longer the bohemian vagabond that he used to be, and is in fact marrying into a very wealthy family, and the wedding they’re about to be part of will be the most outlandish and bizarre that Cheshire has ever seen… Thank the lord Raif has caught it all on tape!

A hoot and a half.
If you’re looking for a sweet flick with a few belly laughs and a cast of well fleshed out characters, you could do a lot worse than giving The Wedding Video a look. Until now I haven’t been a huge fan of Lucy Punch, but she gives a truly accessible and warm performance as Saskia Dutton in this and fits very comfortably along side Rufas Hound, playing Raif the brother of Saskia’s intended, Tim. Robert Webb does well as the brother preparing for his imminent wedding to Saskia, in what, if Saskia’s Mother has her way, will be the wedding of the year. A lot of the story is shown as if knocked together via hand held, but is rarely annoying or as distracting as some such movies that rely on hand held cameras to capture the “fly on the wall” aspect of story telling can be. There are a couple of notable cameos with, for this viewer, far too short a screen time, involving Miriam Margoyles and Matt Berry and Michelle Gomez’ role as a former flight attendant come wedding planner is the crazy glue that holds much of the film together. Rom-coms don’t usually do it for me, but the reason this one flies is the great dialogue, engaging characters and a storyline that is not dripping with the kind of sugary cheese Hollywood tends to fob off as entertainment these days. The low voter score probably relates to the differing appreciation and expectations of humour that seems to exist either side of the pond. Give me a well written, fun British made film any day.
Proof of Point…
This film serves as an excellent reminder that some people simply do not understand comedy. What dull lives they must lead.
When you are criticising the cinematography and acting of a film which is deliberately designed to seem like something shot on a camcorder by an amateur I feel you have just totally missed the point. What were you expecting? Overacting nonsense and wildly exaggerated characters as the stars all via for Oscar nominations? Dramatic sweeping shots of the American plains which last ten minutes and establish nothing more than a willingness to fall asleep? The fact that the three hour yawn fest that was ‘There Will Be Blood’ can be critically acclaimed whilst a genuinely funny film with a lot of charm and character can be slated is everything that is wrong with film these days. Everything that is wrong with the world frankly.
This film is simply fun. It is enjoyable to watch, entertaining and there are some good laughs to be had. The end is even oddly poignant.
Why do people always have to delve headfirst into stuff looking for contrived meaning and commentary on modern society? Wait… I should probably read my own review back right?
