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
Despite the title, Robbie only sings at two weddings in the movie, singing three songs total. The song he sang at the first wedding in the opening scene was "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)" by Dead or Alive. At the second wedding he sings "Holiday" by Madonna and "Love Stinks" by The J. Geils Band after he was stood up by Linda at his own wedding. See more »
When Robbie is in the dumpster there is a chain across his body in one shot and in another shot it's gone, but they go back to him a third time and it's across him again. See more »

I'm usually pretty cynical about cheesy movies but this movie absolutely floored me. Drew Barrymore was phenomenal playing role of Julia Sullivan. I've seen the movie at least 30 times by now and her expressions still make me cry, they're just so sincere. I don't know how else to put it. As for Adam Sandler I think that this is his best role yet, he's a real person in this movie not just some overgrown immature goofball. On top of everything it's a brilliant 80s satire, for me its right up there with American Psycho. I understand why someone would have reservations about watching this movie but my advice would be to put your cynicism aside for a couple of hours and just watch with an uncritical mind. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
