As he and four friends arrive to her family's magnificent property in the Blue Mountains in NSW for the wedding, the problems are just around the corner.

As the wedding plans unfold, David and Mia and a series of small disasters pop after one after the other, David and Mia begin to question how well they really know each other.

The wedding day arrives and the bumbling Brits manage to turn the day to chaos, taking everyone they can along for the ride.

There is a sheep involved, that somehow gets caught up in all the drama, and we begin to wonder if the wedding will actually happen.
Best part of story, including ending: This movie was formulaic at best. Filled with clichés and defaulting to slapstick comedy that we have seen many times before, it is clearly a product designed specifically for the dollars rather than to entertain.

Best scene in story: The setting was the only part of the film I enjoyed. The Blue Mountains region in NSW has some of the most spectacular landscape in the country.

Opinion about the main character: Xavier Samuel plays David and above all else, his talent as an actor shines above everything else in this film.
