The Wedding Singer movie review
The Wedding Singer

How quickly nostalgia comes on us nowadays. The Wedding Singer is set in those innocent days of the 1980s when more was more. It is a boy-meets-girl love story of friends who fall in love and strangers throw themselves body and soul into helping lovers reunite while serving the dastardly with their due comeupance.

The film is enlivened by sly references to then-and-now, and we look back at those things that seemed so serious and eternal, discovering that we have forgotten the unforgettable: Miami Vice, Who shot JR?, Burt-and-Loni, Boy George.

Adam Sandler's Wedding Singer is a master of discretion and graceful good-hearted helpfulness, and we wish him a happy ending. Drew Barrymore's character has a much less clearly defined motivation, and that is a weakness of the film. We know he wants love and family, and a sense of belonging, she on the other hand has a mother with wedding-deprivation to satisfy.

This is your standard boy-girl love story, suitable for dates and eighties nostalgia buffs.
