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.

Julia Gulia remains one of the funniest names I've ever heard. This is when Sandler was at his best. Funny, witty, and sweet.

there's a lack of actual laughs in this script but the movie has enough heart
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

Some nice homage to the 80s and Steve Busemi is the balls but it is just the usual tripe from Sandler.

Flashback to the 80's. I really really enjoyed this Sandler flick. I'm pretty sure we can all agree that Sandler was out of energy a while ago but this, Happy Gilmore (1996) and Billy Madison (1995) are easily my favorites from him. Suffering from a few bland jokes and some small pacing issues, I can't give this movie the full 10/10 but I definitely give it a hearty 8.7/10

The Wedding Singer is a classic Adam Sandler romantic comedy film. It's about a wedding singer named Robbie who, after getting stood up at his wedding, falls for a beautiful girl named Julia. The catch is that Julia is engaged to a dick named Glen. Also, Julia and Robbie constantly run into issues throughout the movie that prevent them from being together, this has such a drastic impact on the audience that it makes you want to make them be together forever. This rom-com is one of the best Adam Sandler movies as the 80's jokes flow constantly throughout the film and the romantic storyline proves to be very well put together.

This was so close to working flawlessly, but of course the Sandler comedy (which, he didn't even write this, but it is written by a frequent collaborator) had to be added, and it didn't work. It wasn't very funny, and felt VERY out of place, it was just abruptly put in. I didn't like the first half as much as the second, but it was still ok. The two most memorable parts, I think, are the Linda song and the plane song (I don't know the titles/names of the songs.) I think if they had just gone full romantic drama, or made the comedy less, oh, what's the word, I guess strong maybe, then they would have had a great movie. But as it is, it's alright, but I definitely don't think I can watch it too many times. Also, I honestly don't think I like it as much as 50 First Dates.

Released in Sandler's nineties heyday, The Wedding Singer wasn't as funny as I hoped it would be, and was far, FAR less original. It's an unbelievably rehashed film, stealing just about every romcom trope from all the other movies in the genre, and stitching them together to create a plot that's as haphazard as it is trite. The 3rd act is especially tiring to watch, firmly bleeding the cliché well dry with an ending so predictable you'll guess it in the first 10 minutes. It does have its upsides fortunately. Many of the jokes are funny, Sandler is playing a character who is well intentioned and endearing, a far cry from his modern output, and Drew Barrymore is as cute and can be as the love interest. Though if she is so sweet, charming and down to earth, how does she end up engaged to such a total douche? Again, a cliché romcoms seem pathologically unable to avoid. It's easily one of Sandler's best film, which, nowadays, isn't much of a compliment, but there's much better flicks out there.

Like any Sandler movie, it's not going to be watched for it's quality. It's more than likely rewatched several times to laugh at certain moments.

10/15/2016: A pretty good 80's themed rom-com. It was pretty funny and had a good story.
