The picture premiered at the Mill Valley Film Festival in San Rafael, California on 14th October 2011.
Angela Bishop: The real life TV journalist as a Channel Ten Reporter.
Olivia Newton-John not only has a supporting actress role in this film as the Mother of the Bride but in keeping with her singing background, the film's soundtrack features songs sung primarily by her.
This wedding comedy features a sheep as did the earlier wedding comedy Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994).
Stephan Elliott: The director as a Tie Guy.
The film's title somewhat spoofs the earlier Hollywood movie A Few Good Men (1992) but unintentionally.
Director Stephan Elliott is most well known for his comedy The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994) which was one of two Australian hit comedies in 1994, along with Muriel's Wedding (1994), ironically, also a wedding comedy like A Few Best Men (2011).
Grease (1978) starring Olivia Newton-John was the first movie seen by the film's writer Dean Craig.
Angela Bishop was credited as "Channel Ten Reporter" (her actual real-life job), however her microphone had a fictitious network's logo on it and no mention of Channel Ten was made in the movie.
At the wedding, Olivia Newton-John (ONJ) sings the disco hit "YMCA" by The Village People. The song appeared in their movie Can't Stop the Music (1980) which was released in the same 1980 year as ONJ's disco movie Xanadu (1980).
