From Amazon.co.uk

Don't just think of The Wedding Singer as an Adam Sandler comedy--though it most certainly is that. But also think of it as the tip of the wave of the 1980s nostalgia craze that followed on the heels of the 1970s nostalgia craze. Set in the post-disco, new wave era, the film tells the story of Robbie Hart (Sandler), the king of small-town wedding-band singers, who once dreamt of being a rock star. But his contentment with life shatters when his fiancée stands him up at the altar. After wallowing in self-pity (by musically attacking the next wedding couple he serenades) and swearing off women, he helps a new friend, Julia (Drew Barrymore), get ready for her impending nuptials--only to find himself falling in love with her. If you're a Sandler fan, you'll enjoy him as an actual adult, though a wise-cracking one. And dig all those kooky 80s reference jokes and that greatest-hits-of-early-MTV soundtrack. --Marshall Fine

Format: DVD
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.

This film is fantastic. Each and every time it is on sky I have to watch it. My family have nearly had enough and are well versed in the amusing "say hi to your brother Tito". It never fails to make me laugh and make me cry. Robbie is a gentle chap and Julia his perfect match. It is almost heartbreaking. The obnoxious Glen deserves everything that he eventually gets. I thoroughly recommend this video for anyone with a soft heart and good humour.

Format: Blu-ray
Robbie is stood up at the altar by 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.

Robbie finds consolation in his friendship with Julia, a waitress at the wedding receptions and bar mitzvahs where he performs.

Julia asks Robbie to help her plan her upcoming wedding to Glenn, who isn't interested in the details of the ceremony.

Robbie learns that Glenn also isn't totally interested in Julia and is marrying her because she "deserves it" after sticking with him for years and because he knows she's not marrying him for his money, since she dated him back before he started pulling down the big bucks...

It's not your typical Sandler movie. There are no where near as many sight gags and rants as you get in his other movies. This is 'The Ladies' Adam Sandler, as you have also seen in '50 first dates' and 'Big Daddy'.

It's ultimately a chick flick with a slight Sandler Sheen. All of his regulars are here, but they play it more straighter than usual.

But it's a god film. The chemistry between the two leads is fantastic, and they should make more movies together.

If you, like myself, love the eighties, then this is the pinnacle tribute to the eighties. Big Hair, Big egos, and Billy Idol.

A movie that will brighten your day up.

I LOVE this film so much. It is so funny. The music is great, and the memories of the 90's are hysterical. The cast is absolutely fantastic. You'll love every character. This is a film that will have you smiling from start to finish. The soundtrack is fantastic.

Adam and Drew give a great performance. I love Adam's 'Outburst' song about Linda. Love John Lovitch's version of ' Lady's Night' .....'CHAKA KHAN'...brilliant !!!

I like the fact that Adam continously puts his friends and family in his films.

The Wedding Singer and Happy Gilmore are films you could watch over and over again.

Adam is a comic genius, and loved by us all. I have forgiven him for 'Going Overboard' (I'm still confused by that film...what the hell was Billy Zane meant to be ??) and I can try to ignore Adam's annoying voice in Waterboy and Little Nicky !!

The Wedding Singer is an absolute classic about a fun time in our lives. It's definately one of my favourite comedy films. Everyone should own this film.

This film is absolutley fantastic in the sense that it keeps you gripped all the way through and although a love story it is not totally slushy. Adam Sandler plays a fantastic role and to a sense you end up wanting to give him a good slap and say wake up and smell the coffee. It is this feeling that brings the film to life. Excellent!!

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
this is a really good rom com with the added bonus of a trip down memory lane for those of us of a certain age.the story follows adam sandlers robbie hart the best wedding singer in town as he is dumped by his girlfriend and falls slowly for the lovely drew barrymores julia who is about to marry the wrong man.that's all the story you need to know but the leads act well together with that special chemistry that makes a movie stand out from the crowd(which this one does).
the picture on this blu-ray is great and so is the sound track the only thing to let the disc down is the lack of special features but even then this is a definite buy for anyone who love a good romance with all the things about the eighties that should have been left there.
