Synopsis:

1
The Wedding Singer is based on the 1998 film of the same title, which starred Adam
Sandler and Drew Barrymore. The film is set during 1985 with the main character Robbie Hart
as the lead singer in a band which performs at weddings. He's about to marry his girlfriend
Linda. Julia is a waitress at the banquet hall where Robbie performs. She is waiting for her long
term boyfriend, Glen, to pop the question. The next week Linda leaves Robbie at the altar and
Glen finally asks Julia to marry him. Glen leaves the wedding planning to Julia who then asks
Robbie for help. It soon becomes apparent that Julia is with the wrong guy and she falls for
Robbie and vice versa. Robbie thinks there is no way he can compete with Glen because Robbie
is “just” a wedding singer and Glen is rich and successful.
