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.Read more ›
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!
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.

Great movie. I played it on a 120 inch projector screen. I was not satisfied with picture quality which prompted me to read reviews to see if I was just being crazy. Nope. Read morePublished 1 month ago by P. Kelsey
