The Modern Wedding Comedy Guide | The Wedding Singer
The Wedding Singer

The Happy Couple: Julia (Drew Barrymore) and Glenn (Matthew Glave)

The Hanger On: Robbie (Adam Sandler)

What’s the situation? Robbie is a wedding singer in 1980s New Jersey, and he loves his job. But when he gets dumped by his own fiancée, his life takes a turn for the bitter. Like, screaming insults and public breakdown bitter. The only bright spot is chirpy waitress Julia, whose wedding he helps to plan – only to gradually realise that a) he’s totes in love with her and b) her fiancé is maybe the worst man in the world. As he tries to pull himself back together and save Julia from a horrible marriage, he apparently never stops to question the wisdom of that mullet. It’s a tragic story really – at least from a follicular point of view.

Worst moment: The onstage breakdown. Although that’s kind of also the best moment.

Moral of the story? People had weird priorities in the ‘80s.

Wedding checklist:

Does the wedding go ahead?
Does true love triumph?
Is there a run for love at the end?
Comic relief from elderly relatives?
Realism score 2/10

I would love to hear some opinions about The Accidental Husband. The film with morals so twisted, I could barely watch it without smashing the TV up. More
