5.0 out of 5 stars The Female Trainspotting! Ten Years After...
From the multi-award-winning Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting) and Dean Cavanagh(Sympathy for the Devil, Babylon Heights, Dose), Wedding Belles is a darkly humorous look at the lives and loves of four modern women, each with their own remarkable, intriguing and often tragic stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Female Trainspotting! Ten Years After..., 25 Feb 2007
This review is from: Wedding Belles [DVD] [2007] (DVD)
From the multi-award-winning Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting) and Dean Cavanagh(Sympathy for the Devil, Babylon Heights, Dose), Wedding Belles is a darkly humorous look at the lives and loves of four modern women, each with their own remarkable, intriguing and often tragic stories.

Wedding Belles is Welsh and Cavanagh's first TV comedy film and features the cream of British acting talent. It tells the story of four late twentysomething women; Amanda (Michelle Gomez), Shaz (Kathleen McDermott), Rhona (Shauna MacDonald) and Kelly (Shirley Henderson) as they prepare for Leith's wedding of the year. But as the wedding draws nearer, their lives are thrown into turmoil with a series of hilarious, shocking and heartbreaking revelations.

Amanda's agenda is simple; she wants to tie the knot to her gorgeous pilot fiancé Joshua (Jonathon Owen) in a lavish ceremony to rival the Beckhams. However, she will soon discover that Joshua isn't her knight in shining armour as she once thought. Following the childhood friends over five days, they soon realise that Amanda isn't the only one who will unearth a dark secret.

Each of the friends has their own agenda; from troubled relationships to foot in mouth disease, drug dependency to selling black-market Viagra to the elderly, all four women are desperate to keep their secrets a secret. As their lives start to unravel, they take a trip down memory lane and they all begin to realise that the past is exactly that and it's time to move on and grow up. But as the wedding draws nearer, their lives are thrown into turmoil with a series of hilarious, shocking and heartbreaking revelations. They have raved, loved and caroused hard, but are now ready to tackle adulthood head-on -or so they thought.

The release features a wealth of exclusive DVD extras, including Deleted Scenes, interviews with Shauna MacDonald, Michelle Gomez, Shirley Henderson, Kathleen McDermott, writers Dean Cavanagh and Irvine Welsh and director Phil John, plus a behind-the-scenes featurette revealing how the film was made.

The soundtrack features Queens of The Stone Age, PJ Harvey, The Blind Boys of Alabama, The Bees, Lonnie Donegan and Irma Thomas.

This review is from: Wedding Belles [DVD] [2007] (DVD)
Gritty / realistic / very rude - almost a documentary about contemporary culture in Scotland.
Perhaps independance isn't such a bad idea!

5.0 out of 5 stars This film should have went further, 4 Oct 2013

I am quite surprised this film never made it big as it is a fantastic story.
Its certainly very dark humour but I will never tire of watching it.
Funny witty and a wee bitty rude.
Some scenes there is no way you would expect that but thats what makes the film great.
Scottish films need a lot more credit.
Its almost like a lighter hearted Trainspotting
