A Match Made In Wedding-Catering Heaven The Wedding Singer: They�re gonna party like it's 1985

New Jersey wedding singer Robbie Hart loses all hope after being abandoned at the altar by his fiancee Linda, who decides that the prospect of marrying a guy who sings at wedding receptions doesn't equal the attraction she felt when he was lead singer in a rock band.

New Jersey wedding singer Robbie Hart loses all hope after being abandoned at the altar by his fiancee Linda, who decides that the prospect of marrying a guy who sings at wedding receptions doesn't equal the attraction she felt when he was lead singer in a rock band.

Afterwards, Robbie finds consolation in his friendship with Julia Sullivan, an effervescent ray of light in the shape of a catering-service waitress at the wedding receptions and bar mitzvahs where he performs.

Julia asks Robbie to help her plan her upcoming wedding to sleazy Glenn, DeLorean-driving junk bond salesman who tomcats around and treats women like unfeeling slabs of meat.

Julia has no idea Glenn is such a sleaze ball and Robbie is starting to fall for her.

Can Robbie win Julia over before she elopes to Las Vegas?

Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore play their parts as if the story has never been told before. Most of the time, the script allows them to act believable, giving the well-worn plot some crackle.

The Wedding Singer is cheesy fun for the nostalgically inclined. Steve Buscemi tries to steal the film in an uncredited role as a drunk best man, but that honor actually goes to Alexis Arquette, as "George."

This movie is rated PG-13 for sex-related material and language.
