Adam Sandler stars as the ultimate master of ceremonies who guarantees all a good time--The Wedding Singer. In this fun return to the fashion-challenged 1980s, aspiring rock 'n' roller Robbie Hart (Sandler) has a regular gig singing at weddings and a fiancée who's about to break his heart. When he's left at the altar at his own wedding, he becomes a newlyweds' worst nightmare ... until he realizes he's free to rescue the woman he really loves (Drew Barrymore) from her boorish fiancé

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: It's decidedly uneven -- and surprisingly sappy for an early Adam Sandler comedy -- but The Wedding Singer is also sweet, funny, and beguiling.

Supporting players are uniformly strong, and Coraci deserves much credit for exacting just the rig...

Silly Adam Sandler romcom has profanity, drunken antics.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Wedding Singer is a 1998 romantic comedy in which Adam Sandler plays a down-on-his-luck musician who is starting to realize he has found the true love of his life after being jilted at the altar by a materialistic long-time girlfriend. Raunchiness, expletives, and occasional drunk-and-disorderly situations abound; it might be too much for some tweens. Profanity includes "s--t" and "bitch." Mentions of prostitutes and the "mile-high club"; lots of characters grab other people's rear ends. In what is now a common-enough feature in Adam Sandler movies, both the very young and the very old use profanity or talk of inappropriate subject matter for the sake of laughs.
