“But the worst thing is: that Me, Fatty, Sideburns Lady, and the mutants over at Table 9, will never ever find a way to better the situation, because apparently we have nothing to offer the opposite sex.” – Robbie

Brief Synopsis – A wedding singer and a waitress both engaged to other people become friends and don’t see that they are actually meant for each other.
My Take on it – This is a movie that I tried watching years ago and, for some reason that I can’t explain, never made it through.
I recently saw a comment that my friend T9M made stating that her blog handle was chosen because of this movie. I had no clue as to what she was referring to, so I decided to take a look.
Surprisingly, I quite enjoyed this one. I’m not the biggest Adam Sandler fan or even a fan of Drew Barrymore, but I tried to repressed those thoughts while watching this and it worked.
Both of them are good here, but I still think Barrymore was better in Fever Pitch (2005)
I love 80’s references and of course this movie is chock full of them.
What I like even more than that is 80’s music and the soundtrack is unbelievably good! The chose the best songs to put in this one.
The story here follow the usual rom-com script, but was still fun to watch.
Thanks T9M for getting me to finally see this one and I’m surprised you think you belong on Table 9!
Bottom Line – Fun romantic comedy that has lots of great 80’s references. Recommended (even though it stars Sandler) 🙂
Rating – Globe Worthy
