Trivia

Alexis Arquette's character is modeled on Boy George from the band Culture Club. The song "I'll Tumble 4 Ya" by Culture Club can be heard in an earlier Adam Sandler film Billy Madison (1995). See more »

Goofs

At the very beginning of the song "Love Stinks," a loud snare drum hit can be heard but the drummer's hands do not appear to be moving, at least not in the way they should for a loud snare drum hit. In addition, for the remainder of the song, a hi-hat sound can be heard but the drummer's right hand is hitting the snare drum. Drummers typically use their right hand on the hi-hat. See more »

Funny Singer!
4 August 2005 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This quirky film has everything- lots and lots of comedy, a nice touch of romance, some violence and a hint of sadness now and again. Oh and it also stars 2 of the most charming actors- Drew Barrymore, as Julia and Adam Sandler, as Robbie. Their on-screen chemistry is very remarkable to watch and their individual charm is most appealing. The movie is set in the 80's and is a great nostalgic piece for that time period- in all is cheesiness and glory! Sandler as the Wedding Singer will surprise you with his musical talents. And musicians who have run the gamut of various music-related jobs will have extra giggles. And of course Barrymore will dazzle you with her cuteness and poise. This movie will leave you in stitches! And a must see!!!
