It's 1985 and rock star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey's favorite wedding singer. He's the life of the party until his own fiancée leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie vows to make every wedding as disastrous as his own. Sparks fly when he meets Julia, a charming waitress at the wedding venue -but as luck would have it, she is about to be married to a Wall Street shark. Unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.

With an electrifying pop score and a ton of high-powered dancing that pays loving homage to the 1980s, The Wedding Singer takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up, and a wedding singer was the coolest guy in the room.
