Relive the catchy tunes and questionable fashions of the 80s with this heartwarming romantic comedy about nice guy Robbie Hart (Adam Sandler), a New Jersey wedding singer whose belief in love is nearly dashed when he’s left at the altar on his own wedding day. When bubbly cater waitress Julia (Drew Barrymore) attempts to lift Robbie out of his funk by inviting him to help plan her upcoming wedding, the two begin to develop deeper feelings for one another. But her impending nuptials to a smarmy yuppie Glenn (Matthew Glave) threatens to complicate matters. This feel-good favorite features a dynamite soundtrack full of 80s hits and kooky cameos from the likes of Jon Lovitz, Steve Buscemi, and Billy Idol.
Cast: Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore, Christine Taylor, Alexis Arquette
