A sparkling romantic comedy, the kind of picture that glides by so gracefully and unpretentiously that it's only upon reflection that you realize how much skill, caring and good judgment had to have gone into its making.
Anyone who rates this movie low is over pretentious and has no ear for timing. So many memorable lines. Great soundtrack purposely stereotyping the 80s. This is the ultimate feel-good movie. It served its purpose well, which was to make REAL people laugh.
After seeing Grownups 2, this movie ended up being a lot better with Adam Sandler giving a much better performance. Set in 1985 (filmed in 1998) the movie stars Adam Sandler as Robbie Hart, a wedding singer.
This movie has withstood the test of time. It is a classic and to me, the best romantic comedy ever made. No film has come close to eclipse it as of current. I love the onscreen chemistry between the Sandman and Drew. Simply amazing. The soundtrack is also very nice and, basically, just watch it, you'll understand. You'll get that mushy feeling too.
Amazing movie. It's touchy and funny. The quintessential romantic-comedy. And the soundtrack is amazing, too. I love 80's music so much, and they make some great choices. The two songs Sandler adds are pretty good as well.
The Wedding Singer
There are some genuine laughs here and there that too especially when it mocks and points out its own petty script that is filled with cliched sequences which is sugar coated by innocent relation between the protagonists. Tim Herlihy's wafer thin script fails to provide anything to the audience resulting piling the load on the director Frank Coraci who is unfortunately okayish in his work. Adam Sandler; at the heart of it, won't disappoint (if one is palpable to its offered usual tone) with Drew Barrymore who too holds on to her part. The Wedding Singer is your typical rom-com that checks off each and every prediction of the viewers and fails to deliver anything beyond your low expectations.
Atleast it beats Jack and Jill, OMG! This movie in my opinion was the only "good" Sandler movie to ever come out. The subtlety of the comedy was good and he wasn't trying to funny "Thank god" although everyone was and they were alot funnier than him.
