From the writer and producers of “death of A Funeral” and the Director of “The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert”, comes this forthcoming outrageous new comedy about a groom and his so called mates, starring Kris Marshall and Olivia Newton John, by Stephan Elliott.
Presented Out of Competition at RFF 2011, with huge consence by critics, “A Few Best Men” made laugh all the public, celebrating the comedy.
When David travels to Australia to marry the love of his life,

his three best men give a whole new meaning to the phrase

‘for better or worse’.

The chaos‐filled wedding is a classic culture clash

between his friends and her family …

because blood is thicker than water and so are David’s mates!
