The Wedding Singer (1998)

The Wedding Singer Quote: “Sir, one more outburst, I will strangle you with my microphone wire.” – Robbie Hart

We’re celebrating Hot Sauce Steve’s birthday with the 1998 hit that marked Adam Sandler’s transition to romantic comedies: “The Wedding Singer.”

In many ways, “The Wedding Singer” was a sign of things to come for Sandler: co-starring with a possibly concussed Drew Barrymore, more subdued roles, nostalgia and mom-safe jokes. But there were still flashes of the Saturday Night Live legend we saw in “Billy Madison” and “Happy Gilmore”: the 90ish-minute runtime, the non-sequiturs, and the cameos.

Weddings are the topic of the week in this episode, with the Shat Crew discussing pre-wedding jitters, the cost of weddings, and how much of a role the groom should play. We also discuss Adam Sandler’s singing, whether Linda got a bad rap, what constitutes cheating, and how well we can spot a freak in the sheets when we see her in the streets.

To top it all off, Ving Rhames calls in to discuss “Blood In Blood Out” and Big D gets passionate about vanilla ice cream.

Plot Summary: “The Wedding Singer” Set in 1985, Adam Sandler plays a nice guy with a broken heart who’s stuck in one of the most romantic jobs in the world, a wedding singer. He loses all hope when he is abandoned at the altar by his fiancé. He meets a young woman named Julia (Drew Barrymore), who enlists his help to plan her wedding. He falls in love with her and must win her over before she gets married.
