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 as two different characters. He played the pot smoking restaurant owner who offers a potential job to Monica in the first season and later played one of Rachel's bad dates. 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 »
When Billy Idol first begins speaking over the plane's loudspeaker, he says that one of the First-Class passengers wants to sing to one of the Coach passengers. Julia instantly appears to think its to her, but she has no reason to think this. Also, when Robbie begins to sing to her still in First Class, she turns to see the entire cabin of people gazing at her with smiles. The people had absolutely no way of knowing it was her that Robbie was singing to. See more »

I've said it before,Adam Sandler does not do great films.He merely wants to entertain us.Though there are times when he has failed miserably,this is not the case with The Wedding Singer.While it does showcase Sandler's usual juvenile humor,this is by far his most likable character,even to date,and the chemistry between him and Drew Barrymore is undeniable. Though this film is not flawless by any means,it is funny and charming just the same.
