Two soldiers return home to Edinburgh to resume their romantic and family lives.
Shortly after the beginning of the film when Davy and Ally are singing "I'm On My Way", as they make their way down the high street dancing, they nearly bump into two men. The two men - twins - are Charlie Reid and Craig Reid: The Proclaimers.
Clothes shopping, Jane Horrocks holds up a black dress on a coat hanger with a name clearly visible on it. She then holds it up to a mirror and it is on a plain black coat hanger.
The initial credits show the main characters in short outtakes from the film. The order is Peter Mullan, Jane Horrocks, George Mackay, Antonia Thomas, Freya Mavor, Kevin Guthrie, Jason Flemyng, Paul Brannigan, Sara Vickers, Michael Beat (as Michael 'Cuban' Keat) and John Spence (as 'Wee' John Spence'). This is followed by a listing of the major crew (director, etc,) on a background of the city of Leith in sunshine. Then the credits revert to the traditional scrolling form, starting with the cast listed in order of appearance.
The DVD contains the original ending, which was shot indoors, but was replaced at a cost of £500,000 by the ensemble ending shot in Edinburgh.
£770,239 (UK) (6 October 2013)
