Just Knot very entertaining.

Byline: GRAHAM YOUNG

THE KNOT (15) Verdict: TO KNOT or not to Knot, that is the question, so soon after other so many recent wedding 'comedies' including Stephan Elliott's A Few Best Men, Nigel Cole's The Wedding Video and even Adam Sandler's That's My Boy.

Showing only at Vue Star City and debut directed by Jesse Lawrence, The Knot is the wedding movie to end all wedding movies - because if this isn't the end of a trend, heaven help us.

Badly acted, despite a decent cast, woefully scripted and ineptly shot, The Knot never threatens to unravel into anything of value after ignoring the advice of one woman that 'She needs to stop thinking with her ***** and to start thinking with her brain'.

Co-star Noel Clarke also co-wrote the script, but he seems to be in danger of making bad movie after bad movie by ignoring the quality before quantity rule.

Imagine going to the wedding of the person you like the least and having to make small talk with their relatives from hell. This is that movie.
