Shotgun Wedding revolves around a young girl named Melanie who is simultaneously trying to marry her boss (who has gotten her pregnant) and steal money from a wedding. Subplots touch upon other couples and schemes, all revolving around various wedding plans.
According to reader Eugene Grobbelaar (who sent in a plot synopsis on which the above is based), the "film is difficult to make sense of", contains "numerous plot holes" and is "confusing and boring". He does feel that some of the dialogue is possibly Ed-like, but is not convinced of the attribution.
To be determined
SHOTGUN WEDDINGThe only record I find of a mass market release is the name 'Go Video Australia' that appears on the IMDb. That doesn't help much.
This film has, however, been available from occasional 'specialty' outlets. Additionally, Fleshbot Films has announced their intention to release Shotgun Wedding on DVD.
CASAMIENTO A LA FUERZAi.e. "Forced Marriage"
This is the Mexican title for Shotgun Wedding. I can find no video releases under this title.
