I think that 'the wedding singer' is a simple, feelgood movie, which doesn't try to be anything else.
Like Jim Carey, who took many goes to strike the right balance, Adam Sandler is a far better comedian when he stops trying and realize he is far funnier being himself rather than over-the top characters (like the awful 'Billy Madison')and allows his supporting cast to be goofy.
My 10 year old son is a huge fan of all the SNL (90s)crew and their movies, and loved this even more than '50 first dates'. The wedding singer appeals to the those waiting to feel that way about someone and those of us who feel that way right now about someone.
The 'knockers' of this flick would be those that can only relate to the dumped 'Robbie Hart', or have no heart at all!
So if you can relate to loving and being loved (by anyone!), this film will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy. Great to watch with the whole family!!
Just had to add...being a teenager in the 80's probably helped my endearment to this movie.
