Synopsis


The Wedding Singer
Mousse up your hair and pull your Missing Persons records out of mothballs for this romantic comedy set in that era of questionable fashion decisions, the '80s. In 1985, Robbie Hart (Adam Sandler) is a vocalist whose rock band stubbornly refuses to get off the ground. In the meantime, he makes a living playing wedding receptions, where his easy charm and ability to schmooze brings him a steady income. Robbie meets Julia Sullivan (Drew Barrymore) when she's working as a waitress at one of his wedding gigs; he immediately takes a shine to her, but since he's engaged, he keeps his distance. Robbie learns that Julia is also engaged; unfortunately, her fiancée Glen Gulia (Matthew Glave) is an obnoxious, self-obsessed yuppie who is chronically unfaithful to her. When Robbie gets stood up at the altar by his fiancée, it's a crushing blow to his ego, and he moves from working weddings to bar mitzvahs to avoid the humiliating issue of matrimony, and he considers giving up on music altogether. In time, Robbie realizes that he needs to step in and stop Julia from marrying Glen before the woman he's come to love ruins her life. Adam Sandler's former Saturday Night Live co-stars Kevin Nealon and Jon Lovitz make cameo appearances, as do Steve Buscemi and Billy Idol -- as himself. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Well worth the purchase, very funny!

    Well firstly let me just say how lame it is that someone posted that Adam Sandler can't act? He's obviously one of the top actors in the comedy genre, along with Jim Carrey, Will ferrell , and obviously others. It's fun to explore a different generation and make fun of it, which is part of what the film makers of this movie were going for, and who can't love the old singing hip hop, that's just plain funny! Not only that but you have this whole love triangle thing going on as far as the story, which is zany of coarse, but the plot does hold through since my friend that likes to be idiotically cynical on his posts. (not literally my friend or someone I know of coarse) I will have to help him out. Adam Sandler used to be a successful 70's rocker, however he becomes washed up and is still with a girl he met from this time. This girl is the one he wants to marry and ends up proposing to her, she does not show, with hilarious results. (such as singing angrily as a drunken wedding singer and fighting.) The girl he meets before at a wedding (who works as a caterer-Drew Barrymore- Very hot in this movie btw) Is getting married to a guy she thinks she loves as well, hence they are both with the wrong people yet find each other eventually. The guy she is with cheats on her, doesn't care to marry her ect. Well during the movie he dates her friend and to simplify Drew and Adam grow closer and closer together. So this movie like many other romantic comedy's follows the three act structure, where actors are brought together, have a falling out and then are brought together in the end for one of those warm touching moments. So there is my little synopsis, I hope you enjoyed reading and I highly recommend this movie if you want a good laugh, it is silly and zany, but I think that's the best kind of comedy.

    Awesome movie, but lame version

    The 5 star rating I've given this movie is well deserved. I've never been much of an Adam Sandler fan, but I still think this is one of the best movies I've ever seen which should give you some idea of how good it is. If you haven't seen this movie, you're missing a classic. The movie pokes fun at some cheesy 80's styles but frankly this movie could have been set in any era and been just as good because much like That 70's show, it's the underlying love story and humor which makes the movie so great, not the era it's set in. The soundtrack is one of the best ever, and this is one of the great love stories you'll ever see. The only negative I could mention is that this so-called special edition isn't all that special. It loses the full screen version which was available on the original dual format disk and to my knowledge theres only 1 new scene in this version and it was a bit flat in my opinion. So if you already have the regular version, I'd recommend skipping this version. If you don't have either version, I suppose you couldn't go wrong with either version but I personally find the original version to be perfect as was so I recommend the original version but to each their own. In any case, if you haven't seen this one, make a point to do so soon.

    Classic Sandler in an 80s vein

    WEDDING SINGER comes at the end of Sandler's swift rise to cinema stardom. His SNL time had showcased his variety of funny-man talents and then AIRHEADS, BILLY MADISON & HAPPY GILMORE cemented his big-screen presence into place. WEDDING SINGER works on allowing Sandler a wee bit more seriousness, kinda like Mike Myers in AXE MURDERER vs AUSTIN POWERS, while still letting him sing and act like a lovable goof. Borrowing vibes from the 80s rom-com, WS is broad & enjoyable entertainment! Especially when the Blu-ray is so perfectly priced!

    This movie started Adam Sandler's decent into the mega-cheesy love-story movies he's been doing for a while now, but it's still great. Growing up in the '80's, it always brings back fond memories, especially the music, which I still enjoy. The supporting characters, as always, are a riot, and the plot is generally funny. Even the super-cheese airplane-guitar song stiff wasn't too bad, and I can still watch it after so many years and find new hilarious scenes. A great buy, plus now it's been released with DTS sound, which always enhances any movie! Cheers!

    What can you say that this is one of Adam Sandler's best vehicles. He has faltered after this one. This bluray is light on features but offers a great quality in picture from this move that is now almost 20 years old. Hilarious and fun all at the same time. There is an added extra scene in this bluray version that is not in the original that they cut out of the theatrical version. So I won't put in any spoilers but this is not the theatrical version of the movie but the only difference is the one scene.

    Fun movie & great sound, but disappointing extras

    This is one of Adam Sandler's best films and the blu-ray is a must-own for any fans who have made the move to BD. What keeps this from being a five star review is the lack of extras on the disc. Instead of giving us the bonus features from the two previous DVD releases, the disc contains nothing but a feature on the Broadway adaptaion of the Wedding Singer. Still, this is a great film that has never looked or sounded better on home video, and can now be found at bargain prices. Recommended.
