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

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.

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 old version - the new re-master based on a 4k scan is the one to get) "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" (same thing as "Patton" - the new version is improved) and the newer "Ultimate Hunter Edition" and 3D conversion 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!

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.

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.
