Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Wedding Singer is a 1998 romantic comedy in which Adam Sandler plays a down-on-his-luck musician who is starting to realize he has found the true love of his life after being jilted at the altar by a materialistic long-time girlfriend. Raunchiness, expletives, and occasional drunk-and-disorderly situations abound; it might be too much for some tweens. Profanity includes "s--t" and "bitch." Mentions of prostitutes and the "mile-high club"; lots of characters grab other people's rear ends. In what is now a common-enough feature in Adam Sandler movies, both the very young and the very old use profanity or talk of inappropriate subject matter for the sake of laughs.

Sexual Content

Frequent sexual innuendo. On an airplane, reference is made to the "mile-high club." An elderly woman openly discusses her sex life. A speech given by a best man references the solicitation of prostitutes. Two men talk about a cocktail server's rear end. An elderly man grabs the rear end of a young female server. During a slow dance between the female lead character and an awkward tween boy, the boy reaches down and squeezes the rear end of his dance partner, prompting the other dancers to grab their partners' rear ends as a joke.


A drunken fistfight outside a bar. The father of the bride punches the wedding singer.
