This year marks The Wedding Singer’s silver anniversary. On Monday, the cherished comedy featuring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore turns 25. As a result, many fans are speculating as to whether they will soon be treated to another team-up from the hilarious pair.
Sandler played Robbie Hart, a down-on-his-luck wedding singer in 1985 who is left at the altar by his longtime fiancée Linda (Angela Featherstone), leading him to stop believing in love, in the 1998 movie, which was the first movie Sandler, 56, and Barrymore, 47, starred in together.
Here comes Julia Sullivan, a vivacious young woman Robbie meets while working as a waitress at a wedding. The two click right away and become good friends, but their platonic relationship soon develops into something more. one major issue? Along with Robbie still being fixated on Linda, Julia’s engagement to the terrifying Glenn Gulia (Matthew Glave) is a source of much anxiety.
Of course, Robbie and Julia finally find their way to a happily ever after, with a little assistance from Billy Idol playing himself and a song played throughout the trip. But what happens after that?
Although Sandler and Barrymore haven’t mentioned anything about a The Wedding Singer sequel, they have talked openly over the years about how much they enjoyed working together on the movie as well as their subsequent efforts, 50 First Dates (2004) and Blended (2014).
On Barrymore’s eponymous talk show recently, Sandler made an appearance, and the two of them discussed the romantic comedy that later served as the basis for a Broadway musical. They admitted upon their reunion that Julia hadn’t heard the song Robbie sings to her in the aeroplane scene, “Grow Old with You.”
“I wasn’t allowed to sing ‘Grow Old With You’ to Drew before we sang at the actual [taping],” said Sandler, to which Barrymore agreed, “Not once.”
“That is my initial response captured on film. With “Forgetful Lucy,” I also did that “Barrymore yelled out the pair’s musically identical exchange in 50 First Dates.
When asked by Barrymore to select one of his films to encase in time, Sandler selected The Wedding Singer and remembered their first encounter “I once shared a workspace with this young woman. At the Newsroom Café, we first spoke. She entered with fashionable, slightly reddish hair.”
He continued, alluding to The Wedding Singer, “She came in, we jammed on a movie idea, we got together, we shot it, and we had the best time ever.”
Barrymore admitted that there is one co-star that sticks out among all of those she has appeared in movies and TV shows with back in March 2019.
At the season 3 premiere of her Netflix series Santa Clarita Diet, she exclusively spoke to PEOPLE about her favourite actor: “Adam Sandler, obviously, just because I want to make movies with him forever.”
Is it therefore time for the acting dream team to get back together? They obviously have “more to go,” in Barrymore’s words.
At the period of their acquaintance, she remarked, “We just spoke on the phone the other day. We frequently speak on the phone, and we both said, “I don’t know, it feels like something.”
“We always get like a time and an instinct thing,” Barrymore added. “We’ve done it three times now, so we know we have more to go.”
Barrymore hinted last month to Entertainment Tonight that she and Sandler are “talking about” a potential Wedding Singer reunion.
“It’s time, in my opinion. We are searching. Without a doubt, we’re looking “Added she.
We did chat about how we were like, “Oh it’s coming up on 10 years,” when Sandler recently appeared on her show, Barrymore recalled to ET. “We discussed various possibilities and decided to participate. It’s bubbling, “She spoke.
