I love the Wedding Singer........there are few movies I feel now capture what I love so much about 80s movies as well as the Wedding Singer.....well man it came out in 1998...that was 13 years ago???? that's crazy to me! I saw it in the theater with a bunch of friends and I actually fought them about the fact "that was not really Billy Idol" I was totally wrong.
The sdtrk is awesome and spawned a second sdtrk right? and a musical......seriously who doesn't know the words to "Grow Old with You"?
You fell hook line and sinker for the characters.......even though it could be percieved as "over the top" making the 80s jokes and references, it wasn't for me......because it was done right, by people that obviously loved the 80s. Example 'Hot Tub Time Machine....ok movie but badddddddddd job tying in the 80s stuff.
So who's up for watching this classic again....I'll pay you in meatballs?
i'm so glad we watched this. one of my favorite parts of the movie and when we all watched, was when Robbie plays his Linda song for Jules and we all were quoting the lyrics ha..."Somebody Kill Me Please."
glad we all agreed that Linda and Glen were both creeps.
Muffy.. like i said, i so thought that Billy was a look-a-like in this. haha
all the music numbers are too funny, including the tunes.
*You Make My Dreams *Love My Way *Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic *99 Luftballons *Hold Me Now (whooooooaaaaa)
i remember looking up reviews for the musical because it was coming here and they weren't very good, so i didn't get tickets. but i wanted to see it!
Sandler and Barrymore were adorable together in this one. gotta love the ending, when all of us were doing the "Awwwww" thing together ha.

I had a blast watching "The Wedding Singer" last night.
Sharing it with friends gave me a new appreciation of 80's fashion that this movie nailed perfectly. The thin ties, the neon shirts, the headbands, suspenders, stylish earrings, Don Johnson, Madonna, MJ, etc.
But what really caught my attention was a discussion about Patrick Nagel art .. just totally 80's in my opinion. See above on the walls of the dance club from the movie.
I have a big Wedding Singer poster on the wall at the end of my bed. I wake up to Robbie Hart everyday I have so much love for this film....I may marry it myself. Anyone know a good wedding singer??? NOT Lovitz!!! haha.

I had to swipe Muffs pic from above because this is still one of my fav quotes from the movie:
'Hey, psycho - I'm not gonna feel better about this, it's over. Please get out of my Van Halen t-shirt before you jinx the band and they break up. '
That's probably gotta be my favorite line too. Though we all know it wasn't REALLY the end of the band..but the irony is still funnier than hell..heh.
