Our Score
Adam Sandler is pitch-perfect in his role here as hopelessly romantic cabaret wedding singer Robbie Hart, who falls in love with waitress Julia (Drew Barrymore) at a nuptial function only to discover that she's engaged to someone else. The chemistry between the two stars works like a charm and director Frank Coraci has enormous fun with the music, fashions and fads of the mid-1980s setting. This good-natured, entertaining romp has a knowing sense of the ridiculous and it's topped off by a great pop soundtrack.

Summary

A failed rock star carves out a career as a popular wedding singer, but his hopes for a bright future are dashed when his fiancee jilts him at the altar and he tries to shut himself off from the outside world. At one of his functions, a waitress catches his eye - but unfortunately for him, she is already engaged to someone else. Romantic comedy set in the 1980s, starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore.
