Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

You're better off having been born after, say, 1965, if you really want to enjoy this corny romantic comedy and its abundant references to the MTV culture of the mid-1980s--and even then the odds are only 50-50 that you'll have a shamelessly good time. But a lot of people beat those odds, because The Wedding Singer was a surprise box-office hit when released in early 1998, and it resulted in Saturday Night Live graduate Adam Sandler's salary going ridiculously sky-high. It's a schizophrenic film about a seemingly schizophrenic wedding singer (Sandler) who's charmingly sweet to some people but a tongue-lashing maniac to others, probably out of frustration over his fading ambition as a wannabe rock star (not to mention Sandler's penchant for loud-mouthed lunacy). When he meets an admiring young waitress (delightfully played by Drew Barrymore), it's love at first sight, complicated by their pending marriages to much less appealing fiancés. The plot then contorts itself to accommodate this contrived will-they-or-won't-they? scenario, so you're better off ignoring the love story and focusing on the comedy, which is sporadic but occasionally hilarious. This is also a lighter, friendlier Sandler than moviegoers had seen before, which probably accounts for the movie's success. Toss in a fine supporting cast--including a show-stopping drunk act by indie-movie stalwart Steve Buscemi--and you've got the ingredients for a no-brainer that's ultimately more fun than it is annoying. --Jeff Shannon

Product Description

It's 1985 and Adam Sandler is the ultimate master of ceremonies...until he is left at the altar at his own wedding. He starts to pick up the pieces of his heart after meeting Drew Barrymore but she's about to have a wedding of her own.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Wedding Singer March 22, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am not generally an Adam Sandler fan, but this film really surprised me. I liked it very much, and the music used brought back a lot of good memories. He plays a down on his luck wedding singer that is left at the alter, and when he meets Julia played by Drew Barrymore, sparks fly. I was very surprised by the chemistry Sandler and Barrymore have on screen. A romance with a generous amount of comedy mixed in is the perfect formula.

2.0 out of 5 stars A classic example of DNR ruining HD video! May 17, 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I would love to give this title 4 stars for content since it's definitely one of Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore's best comedies so far, but once again the ugly face of Digital Noise Reduction (DNR) has reared its head.

The colorful and vibrant 80's primary palette absolutely pops and is a virtual knockout in HD. On the audio side, the 24 bit/48 kHz Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless track lets the classic pop tunes sound spectacular. However, while zealously trying to get rid of all traces of grain (which is a natural byproduct of film and contains, in video terms, important high frequency detail), some telecine moron also got rid of most or all of the fine detail you would expect from true 1080p video (2 million+ pixels), rendering faces to wax dummy status. Plus, this healthy dose of DNR creates smearing and noise artifacts in moving objects, especially pronounced in close ups.

This and the Blu-ray's of "Patton," "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly," and the newer "Ultimate Hunter Edition" of "Predator" (if you can find the original MPEG-2 encoded Blu-ray version of "Predator," get that one) should be used at all telecine transfer schools as examples of what NOT to do when prepping a film or TV program for HD video.

Don't waste your money like I did!

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite romantic comedy of all time July 8, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This is easily my favorite romantic comedy of all time. My enjoyment never decreases no matter how many times I watch it. Adam Sandler may put out a mediocre movie now and again, but he proves his acting skills in The Wedding Singer. The adorable Drew Barrymore pretty much breaks the world record for cuteness, innocence, and preciousness in her performance. Robbie Hart (Sandler) is a wedding singer who is a week away from marrying his sweetheart Linda. Julia Sullivan (Barrymore) is a waitress who has moved to the city to be closer to her fiancée Glenn, whom she fears is never going to set a date for their wedding. Robbie loves his job and loves helping all sorts of people, but his world crashes down around him when his fiancée never shows up for the wedding and later tells him she cannot possibly marry someone who is just a wedding singer in a small town. Julia is overjoyed when Glenn finally agrees to get married, but she begins to question her feelings as she spends more and more time with Robbie, whom she helps bring out of his Linda-induced depression. Both Linda and Glenn are thoroughly shallow, unworthy people. Naturally, there are all kinds of complications involved in Robbie and Julia actually acknowledging and expressing their feelings for one another, and the movie culminates in Robbie's desperate attempt to find Julia before she gets to Las Vegas and marries Glenn.
The theme may sound rather commonplace, and it probably is, but this movie works wonderfully. The entire cast is wonderful, from an older lady who pays Robbie for singing lessons with meatballs as she learns a song to sing for her husband on their 50th wedding anniversary, to Robbie's strange friend who dresses like Michael Jackson and patterns his life after Fonzie.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Romantic Comedy That Succeeds at Both January 9, 2007
Format:DVD
"The Wedding Singer" is one of the few romantic comedies that is simultaneously laugh-out-loud funny and tear-to-the-eye romantic. Adam Sandler plays his most endearing role as Robbie Hart, a wedding singer whose heart was robbed of his parents as a child, then of his bride (at the altar). Drew Barrymore is the same type of warm, funny character that she plays so well.

The jokes and sight gags relating to the ridiculousness of the 80s really score. Supporting players Christine Taylor as Drew's slutty cousin and Allen Covert as Adam's smooth-talking friend add to the laughs.

This particular "Totally Awesome" version contains more than five minutes of never-before-seen footage. One of those scenes is an unfunny exchange between Drew's character and her mother. The other is a lengthy scene in which Robbie Hart engages in sex talk with an aged woman taking voice lessons from him. Although the scene's coarseness is likely the reason it was deleted from the theatrical release, it makes an unexpected (though welcome) appearance on this DVD release.

The other special feature, a backstage look at the Broadway musical "The Wedding Singer" did little to sell me on the play's merits. I'll stick with this totally awesome DVD.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shoddy product September 4, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was dismayed when I opened the box of this movie, discovering it was a "flippy" DVD. For those uninitiated, a "flippy" is a 2-sided DVD with both the Widescreen and Standard versions of the film (or maybe the documentary and extras in the back side.

Regretably, this usually is a sign that you'll have to buy another copy in 5 to 10 years; a "flippy" DVD is just an aluminum layer and the necesary data layers trapped inside two thin plastic platters. Your life expectancy of such a contraption depends on the quality of the glue used to hold the thing together. If the glue is poorly applied or becomes porous with age, air will seep in and start oxidizing the aluminum layer... effectively destroying its reflective capabilities, thereby killing your DVD copy.

As expected (I bought my copy in Sept. 2008), the disk's shiny surface has started to darken in a circular pattern around the outer edges, which are surefire first signals of DVD-rot. This blemish will slowly extend all over the disk, and my copy of the "Wedding Singer" will be dead by the end of the year.

If you want to buy a copy of this movie, make sure you're getting a standard DVD, instead of a "flippy"... it will save you the aggravation of having to buy a new copy as years go by...
