Robbie Hart is singing the hits of the 1980s at weddings and other celebrations. He also can keep the party going in good spirit, he knows what to say and when to say it. Julia is a waitress at the events where Robbie performs. When both of them find someone to marry and prepare for their weddings, it becomes clear that they've chosen wrong partners. Written by
Coincidentally, this movie has several actors who have at some point appeared in the TV show Friends. Christine Taylor (who plays Holly) appeared as Phoebe's friend and Ross's potential girlfriend Bonnie-the one who shaves her head. Christina Pickles (who plays Julia's mother) plays Monica and Ross' mother. Incidentally, she mentions in the car to Julia -before Robbie is to marry Linda- that Julia's paternal grandmother has facial hair and looks like Magnum P.I., who is played by Tom Selleck, who also plays Richard, Monica's boyfriend. Jon Lovitz, who plays Jimmy Moore, the other wedding singer appeared on Friends twice. He played the pot smoking restaurant owner who offers a potential job to Monica in the first season and later reprised that role when Phoebe sets him up on a date with Rachel. And Angela Featherstone, who plays Robbie's fianceé, plays the hot girl who works at the copy shop and who Ross "cheats" on Rachel with when they were "on a break". See more »

Adam Sandler plays Robbie Hart, a wedding singer with only enough money to get by. He was going to get married, but Linda, his fiancé', doesn't show up, and finally confronts him saying that she was having second thoughts. Drew Barrymore plays Julia Sullivan, a shy girl engaged to the wrong man. They meet when Julia is waitressing at the place Robbie works at. They are instantly friends and get along quite well.
This simple plot is expanded by the great and memorable characters and the actors who portray the roles. It is funny and has plenty of memorable lines. And if this isn't enough for you to shout "WAHOO!" the chemistry between Julia and Robbie is right on and I'm surprised they aren't dating in real life. This is a great romantic comedy so just watch it without any questions! It has become one of my favorites.
