The Wedding Singer Reviews
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.
Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore work so well together and would collaborate again in the future
this movie is a nice love letter to the 1980's about two people engaged to the wrong ones
both of them have to start realizing it before it's too late
Robbie's folks died at a young age so he wants what they wanted; to fall in love, get married and have a family
after a tough breakup though he doesn't want to act all giddy even though he has gigs singing for other weddings
plus what is marriage really for anyways? is it for happiness? security? to settle?
Robbie just wants that one person to make him feel good about himself
love is hard and it stinks but you do find that one person telling you it will all be ok
sappy but really well-acted for a romantic comedy
