The Wedding Singer

"He's gonna party like it's 1985."

Many people are familiar with the work of Adam Sandler, having appeared in countless movies and television shows. What some folks may not know was that his first major motion picture was a period piece called The Wedding Singer in 1998. Fresh off his big break as a part of Saturday Night Live crew, Sandler and a top notch cast recreate the 1980s to tell a story of love, loss and finding the right person for you.

Sandler plays Robbie Hart, a wedding singer who is engaged to be married himself. He meets Julia, a waitress at the banquet hall where he performs and learns she is similarly engaged to a man named Glenn and planning to get married. A friendship begins to form between them as they frequently work weddings together. When the special day comes for Robbie, he is left waiting at the altar by his fiancee, Linda. Linda confronts him after the failed wedding and admits she fell in love with him because he was an up and coming rock star with big goals. Linda expresses disappointment in Robbie that he never followed his dream and settled for performing at weddings. This shatters Robbie's belief that love can conquer all and sends him into a spiral where he cannot even perform adequately. Julia sets out to cheer Robbie up and restore his faith in love, she goes so far as to arrange a double date so she can introduce him to a friend. During the date, Robbie discovers Julia's fiancee, Glenn, has been cheating on her the entire time and has no plans to stop once they get married.

Fueled by a desire to do right by Julia and restore his own faith in true love, Robbie sets out on a quest to woo Julia away from Glenn, restore his career as a wedding singer and finally live happily ever after.
