The chemistry between Sandler and Barrymore is something special to see here, and I think 'The Wedding Singer' ends up being Sandler's best movie.

Not the most original comedy, but many will enjoy.

Although the movie is remarkably schmaltzy, it's sweet and affecting, too, with Sandler's character as genuinely nice as he can be.

Supporting players are uniformly strong, and Coraci deserves much credit for exacting just the right degree of outrageousness without spinning into some wild orbit.

Yes, it's sappy. It's also silly, utterly unironic, a sketch stretched out to feature length, and, if you're in the right mood, pretty darned cute.

Barrymore and Sandler are lovely together, and the movie, set in 1985, was also among the first to tap into 1980s nostalgia.

The plotting is simplistic but cute and the gags are consistently funny, particularly for anyone who grew up in the 1980s.

Besides music that harks back to the days when MTV was worth watching (Martha Quinn Forever!), The Wedding Singer is also a sweet, beguiling romantic comedy.

Barrymore shines like a new penny on the strength of pure movie-star personality.

The almost never-miss comedy makes up for the unexceptionnal storyline, and Frank Coraci happens to be a skillful mainstream director.

Finally, an Adam Sandler comedy that you can sit through without wanting to throw a mallet through the screen.

As Robbie Hart, a former lead singer in a rock band reduced to performing at weddings, Sandler goes for more than the easy laughs.

Sandler shows an emotional range beyond his usual mercurial knucklehead; Barrymore drops her adolescent nymph in favor of a more sensitive, mature persona.

Sandler makes nice to please the female demographic.
