Movie Night: Wedding Workers

This week, the Sugar Network is a-twitter with the excitement of wedding planning mania, which got me thinking about all the hard workers who make those big days as perfect as possible. And then there are those who "work" weddings with a different agenda. Either way, it's time for a Movie Night all about wedding workers.

The Wedding Singer
Anytime this movie comes on TBS, I have to give up whatever I'm doing and watch it. As a result, I've seen this film dozens of times, and I love it more with each viewing. I can even forgive the utterly passionless kissing that goes on between Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler. The film follows schlubby-but-cute wedding singer Robbie (Sandler) as he pines for a fellow wedding worker, catering waitress Julia (Barrymore). Having been burned when his ex-fiancee left him at the altar, he's pretty bitter about love, and besides, Julia is herself betrothed to a sleaze bag. ("Julia Gulia?") But with a little confidence, some help from his friends, and a song he wrote himself that makes a little weepy every darn time, Robbie might just stand a chance at love. Relive the fun opening sequence set to "You Spin Me Right Round" here.

Two more good ones, so

Wedding Crashers
Meet some guys who work weddings for a completely different reason: to meet ladies. Jeremy (Vince Vaughn) and John (Owen Wilson) are pros at pretending they know the bride or groom, grabbing some free food, and dancing drunkenly with the bridesmaids until they end up in bed with some girl who feels lonely amidst all the wedding romance. At one such wedding, John actually does meet the girl of his dreams but — isn't it always the case? — she's in a relationship with a Totally Wrong Guy (played by Bradley Cooper). Vaughn was basically born to play Jeremy, and Rachel McAdams manages to bring surprising dimension to her role. The best reason to watch Wedding Crashers, however, is the high-pitched, slightly insane "virginal" vixen Gloria, played hilariously by Isla Fisher.

The Wedding Planner
Jennifer Lopez is wedding planner Mary Fiore in this lighthearted rom-com that takes place against the lovely backdrop of San Francisco. When hired by the extremely wealthy Fran Donolly (Bridgette Wilson-Sampras), Mary promptly falls for her fiance Steve (Matthew McConaughey), who also happens to have saved Mary's life. A painful love triangle ensues, and they all learn some important lessons about being true to yourself. The most fun part is watching Mary stalk around the weddings she runs with a microphone headset like a frantic stage manager trying to remain calm.
