Photographer Hal (James Purefoy) wants out of his imminent wedding to Vinni (Susan Vidler), and on his all-day stag night asks his pal Mr Mac (Adrian Dunbar) to seduce her so he can catch them in flagrante. Little does Hal know that his supposed friend and Vinni's ex-boyfriend, Little Ted (Tony Slattery), has his own plan to get her back; he wants Mr Mac to persuade his barmaid girlfriend Petula (Amanda Redman) to seduce Hal so that he can catch it on film. Meanwhile Vinni - who also wants out of the wedding - decides to gatecrash the stag night, and her best pal Clodagh (Victoria Smurfit) - who has herself been having an affair with Hal - decides to make a play for the groom herself. Also in the mix are Petula's pyschotic copper husband (Leslie Grantham) and Clodagh's ex, Salty (Neil Stuke), ensuring that comic misunderstandings and unexpected partnerings will ensue.
Harking back to the wilderness days of British cinema, The Wedding Tackle is an unsophisticated comedy of manners and relationships. Dealing with the impending matrimony of Hal and Vinny, a union that neither are particularly keen to enter into, the story intertwines a number of characters during the events of Hal's stag night. As the title suggests, much of the humour is aimed below the waist, and although it does wend its way to some sort of romantic conclusion, subtlety is not the film's strong point. Victoria Smurfit's Clodegh is by far the best character, an urban Tank Girl whose morals are as erratic as her driving skills. Bold, brash and noisy, The Wedding Tackle isn't the worst film around, but we can do so much better. --Phil Udell

Although not having a perfrectly stable storyline, this film is extremely amusing, if just because of the fantastic casting. Tony Slattery, especially, makes his first film appearance for a number of years, and brings hilarity to The Wedding Tackle, the story of Little Ted and the marriage of his ex-girlfriend, whom he still loves. There is much plotting amongst the characters to prevent the wedding for a number of different reasons, providing excellent entertainment. The best thing about this film is that it can be watched over and over, because there isn't too complicated a plot, and the film requires very little attention in order to amuse the viewer.

Came home and watched this with a takeaway. Thought it was amusing and the actors were well known faces. It is easy to watch and I reckon most would watch it a few times over the years if they buy it.
