Trivia

Coincidentally, this movie has several actors and actresses who have appeared on Friends (1994). Christine Taylor (Holly) appeared as Phoebe's friend and Ross' potential girlfriend Bonnie - the one who shaves her head. Christina Pickles (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. (Tom Selleck), who also plays Richard, Monica's boyfriend. Jon Lovitz (Jimmy Moore) appeared on Friends (1994) 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. Angela Featherstone (Robbie's fianceé) plays the hot girl who works at the copy shop, and with whom Ross "cheats" on Rachel when they were "on a break". Alexis Arquette (George) played a waitress at the club, "Viva Las Gaygas", at which Chandler's dad was the headline act. See more »

The Ups and Downs of Love
31 August 2004 | by PseudoFritzSee all my reviews

To repeat a theme, I'm not a big fan of Adam Sandler, but I love this movie.

Robbie Hart is a genuinely likable character; he's a person I would like to have as a friend, and he's a performer I would gladly hire to sing at my OWN wedding (Sandler also seems completely comfortable with his character, while even Drew Barrymore sometimes sounds like she's merely reciting written dialogue). Yes, he's a capital-R Romantic, but that seems like a strong qualification for someone who makes his living at other people's weddings. I like the whole idea of a romantic comedy being set behind the scenes of the whole wedding game, and some of the most telling scenes involve Robbie guiding Julia through the preparations with an insider's eye.

Probably the funniest parts of the movie (to me) are those that play to Robbie's broken heart; it's probably the best depiction of the depression of the newly-dumped I've ever seen (in particular, I love the "Kill Me Please" song). Hey, I've been there.

This all being said, however, I think the touch-all-the-landmarks-of-the-mid-'80s approach gets awfully heavy-handed at times. The musical choices, though, were excellent.
