AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'English lad David (Xavier Samuel) is getting married and his hapless best mates, Tom (Kris Marshall), Graham (Kevin Bishops) and Luke (Tim Draxl), are about to give a whole new meaning to the phrase "for better or worse"

'As an orphan, David wants nothing more than a family of his own. When he falls in love with Australian Mia (Laura Brent), it seems his new life is about to begin. What can go wrong - you know - apart from accidentally collecting kilos of cocaine and abducting the father-of-the-bride's prize Merino sheep?

'David and Mia's wedding is one chaos-filled day that will test their new marriage, challenge his relationships with his three best men, and risk turning what should be the best day of their lives into the worst. Set in the rugged Blue Mountains of Australia, A Few Best Men is a hilarious culture clash between his friends and her family because blood is thicker than water, and so are David's mates.'
