There's some cheap nostalgia at play here (okay, maybe a lot) but it's more than made up for with genuine laughs and a ton of heart.
June 1, 2018
Puppy charm, retro-hip and some good old-fashioned romantic chemistry lift a traditional comedy to the brighter realms of a pleasant, quirky and genuinely touching slice of matinee entertainment.

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.
December 15, 2010
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.
February 17, 2007
Barrymore and Sandler are lovely together, and the movie, set in 1985, was also among the first to tap into 1980s nostalgia.
May 19, 2006
The plotting is simplistic but cute and the gags are consistently funny, particularly for anyone who grew up in the 1980s.

An hour and a half of solid entertainment.
June 6, 2003
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.
October 15, 2002
Barrymore shines like a new penny on the strength of pure movie-star personality.
September 10, 2002
The almost never-miss comedy makes up for the unexceptionnal storyline, and Frank Coraci happens to be a skillful mainstream director.
August 2, 2002
Sandler proves here that he's not only a brilliant comedian, but a talented actor.
July 12, 2002
Finally, an Adam Sandler comedy that you can sit through without wanting to throw a mallet through the screen.
June 18, 2002
As Robbie Hart, a former lead singer in a rock band reduced to performing at weddings, Sandler goes for more than the easy laughs.
March 24, 2002
Sandler shows an emotional range beyond his usual mercurial knucklehead; Barrymore drops her adolescent nymph in favor of a more sensitive, mature persona.
