“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

Agreed. This might be my favorite Sandler movie (not named Punch Drunk Love).
Have never seen PDL. Is it good? Sandler was great here because he didn’t succumb to the urge to make poopie jokes 🙂
Punch Drunk Love is fantastic. But it’s not a Sandler movie, really. It’s a Paul Thomas Anderson movie, in which Sandler is the star. It bears PTA’s mark through and through, with nary evidence of the Adam Sandler we all know from the rest of his movies. I definitely recommend you see it.
Not even Sandler can ruin it.
on my list!!!
Probably Sandler’s best film and the one that shows the world he isn’t completely incapable. Love the soundtrack, love Drew Barrymore, love this movie!
Thanks for commenting Dan.
LOVE 80’s music!!!
Me too! ; ) Great film that gets overlooked as Sandler has unfortunately had too many bad ones…
waaay too many 🙂
I love Adam Sandler in this film almost as much as I love them in 50 First Dates. I love Steve Buscemi in it 🙂
I saw 50 First Dates once (actually on a date) and didn’t love it. maybe I should re-watch it
Thanks for stopping by and commenting Jenny
I LOVE Steve Buscemi!!! 🙂
He’s a legend! He’s also fabulous in Con Air, he’s beautifully eerie…
loved him in Reservoir Dogs (1992) and Fargo (1996)
Great post man. And. . go easy on me here Mutant, if you see this comment. . . I still have yet to see this movie. 😦 I have no idea how this has happened, but I must get on it.
Nice to see the reference to her blog handle, though. Really cool!
Lol! That’s okay – you can’t watch EVERYTHING. But this one is now your next assignment! ; ) I think you’ll probably like it, judging by other stuff you seem to like. Report back to me once you’ve watched it! : )
who says you CAN’T watch everything?????
Shame on you T9M 😦
What can I say…I was intrigued and decided to take the challenge of finding out what the hell Table9Mutant was.
And I’m glad to now say I know…..The world is a better place once again 🙂
Haha! Love that you watched this! And glad you enjoyed it! : ) Yep – you know I love the 80s so this movie is very “me”. I have both soundtracks they put out as well. ; ) Thanks for the mention! It’s funny – I thought more people would know where my name came from…. Not enough Sandler fans! He’s had too many bad ones that this great one gets overlooked…
I’m glad too.
now you need to change your handle so I can watch another movie 🙂
The Wedding Singer is a great film. And I don’t even like Adam Sandler. Glad you enjoyed it
Even crap actors can hit gold sometimes. unfortunately the opposite is more common 🙂
What makes this film is the music I think. The soundtrack is over two discs (sold separately) and I have both! The Adam Sandler written songs are the best (and not forgetting the old lady rapping)
The music obviously helps a lot here, but I liked the characters and the nostalgic 80’s feel.
Thanks for commenting and the follow SDQ!
