Fighting Belle is a hilarious send-up of Southern caricatures reminiscent of comedy classics Raising Arizona and O' Brother, Where Art Thou?. You are cordially invited to the wedding of the decade! Delilah MacIntosh, debutante and two-time winner of the Magnolia Belle pageant, will wed Mr. Kelvin Wingfield, debonair prizefighter and heir to the Wingfield grocery chain. That was the plan, anyway. After being jilted at the altar, mortified bride-to-be Delilah keeps a low profile, even taking a retail job at a boutique to escape her mother's constant criticism. Searching for a way to release her frustrations, she storms into the town’s boxing gym and is quickly intercepted by the gym’s trainer, a rough-cut bachelor with a heart of gold. However, Delilah's mother isn’t amused, pleading with her daughter to slip off the boxing gloves and slap on the tiara––after all, there’s no reason Delilah shouldn’t be crowned Miss Magnolia Belle for the third year running! With both her title and her love on the line, Delilah does the only thing she can think of: She proposes a rematch with Kelvin–– this time, in the ring! Fighting Belle is a rip-roaring romantic romp that marries the best elements of Legally Blonde and Rocky. Get ready to say, "I do!"
