The Wedding Singer (1998)
Robbie Hart (Adam Sandler) is a musician who is trying to get his band to take off, but in the mean time he plays wedding gigs to make money. Linda (Angela Featherstone) and Robbie are engaged but things aren’t looking good when she dumps him for going nowhere. Julia Sullivan (Drew Barrymore) is a waitress who is working one of the events that Robbie is playing and the 2 strike up a friendship. However, Julia is engaged to Glenn (Matthew Glave) and the 2 are thinking about having Robbie be their wedding singer, that is until Julia’s sister Holly (Christine Taylor) helps create sparks between Robbie and Julia.
Full of 80’s charm, color, rock music and bad fashion, The Wedding Singer is an instant favorite to most people who see it. Unlike the other stupid characters that came before, Adam Sandler toned down the immaturity and creates a charming story with the chemistry he has with Drew Barrymore (which is recreated in 50 First Dates). The alternative rock music featured is a collection any rock fan will love and Billy Idol himself makes an appearance at the end that helps Robbie get the girl. The song that Robbie sings at the end for Julia, I had recited at my wedding. Do yourself a favor and see The Wedding Singer. Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore are a treat!
9/10 Stars – Wonderful music and perfect chemistry, The Wedding Singer dazzles and makes us smile!
The Wedding Singer is a lovable, funny, cute comedy that you can’t miss. The chemistry between Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler is palpable and unexpected. You just can’t help but love this movie for its great music, sound plot and good acting. Watch it! And yes I am the wife that decided to have song Robbie sings at the end at my wedding because it was one of the most perfect ways to represent why we were great together!
