New Jersey wedding singer, Robbie Hart loses all hope after being abandoned at the altar by Linda, his fiance. Enter Julia, an effervescent ray of light in the shape of a catering-service waitress, who enlists Robbie's help in planning her own wedding. Can our hero win Julia over before she elopes to Las Vegas? Will Billy Idol save the day? And, most importantly, will the fluffy romantic storyline be completely overpowered by the weighty mid-1980s cultural references? Steve Buscemi tries to steal the film in a discredited role as a drunken best man, but that honour actually goes to Alexis Arquette, as "George", in this cheesy fun comedy for the nostalgically inclined.
