In strongTHE WEDDING SINGER/strong, it's 1985 and rock-star wannabe

affection. Only trouble is Julia is about to be married to a Wall







Street shark, and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a







decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever. With a brand







new score that pays loving homage to the pop songs of the 1980's, strongTHE WEDDING SINGER/strong takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed
