No. 96: The Wedding Singer

Crashing New Jersey

1998, dir. Frank Coraci. This fairy tale, starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, takes place long ago (the 1980s) in a faraway land (New Jersey) and features such mythical creatures as Billy Idol. It’s also one of the most convincing depictions of menschhood in recent memory, and anyone not totally smitten with Barrymore as she lip-syncs to David Bowie’s “China Girl” is dead inside.

I guess it doesn’t matter whether we, or other family members, thought the movie was cute or not?

Adam Sandler was a riot as Robbie The Bar Mitzvah Singer in this movie. The scene at the Bar Mitzvah was hilarious and the scene on the plane was the perfect ending. I give this two thumbs up!!!

I don’t consider this a Jewish film. I know that there are Jewish elements or occasions in the film but it is just a great film in general. Adam Sandler is so funny and a riot in this movie. Combined with his chemistry with Drew Barrymore it is a film that everyone could love. I love especially the end of the movie on the plane. It is ever romantic movie watchers perfect ending!
