No. 96: The Wedding Singer
Crashing New Jersey
1998, dir. Frank Coraci. This fairy tale, starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, takes place long ago (the 1980s) in a faraway land (New Jersey) and features such mythical creatures as Billy Idol. It’s also one of the most convincing depictions of menschhood in recent memory, and anyone not totally smitten with Barrymore as she lip-syncs to David Bowie’s “China Girl” is dead inside.
