June 1, 2008
Supporting players are uniformly strong, and Coraci deserves much credit for exacting just the right degree of outrageousness without spinning into some wild orbit.

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.

Hokey as Robbie and Julia's courtship turns out to be, Mr. Sandler really does draw some empathy for his character's lonely plight.

The movie is a tame affair, shot on calm, manicured streets; the interiors are decorated in pastels.

This movie is sickeningly sweet, and only a die-hard romantic or an avowed Adam Sandler fan will be able to sit through the ninety-five minute feature without going into sugar shock.

One of the sad byproducts of the dumbing-down of America is that we're now forced to witness the goofy plots of the 1930s played sincerely, as if they were really deep.

Ridiculous and surprisingly likable -- sweet, silly and light as a soap bubble.

In essence, The Wedding Singer is a K-Tel hits package posing as a movie.
