It’s the ‘80’s—a time for junk bonds, MTV, “Dynasty,” Duran Duran and leg warmers! Robbie Hart, New Jersey Wedding Singer, lives in his grandmother’s basement and dreams of being a successful singer/songwriter. Once Robbie is finally ready to settle down, his fiancee leaves him standing at the altar, becoming a wedding planner’s worst nightmare! He breaks down and begins taking out his bitterness on stage until his eye and heart turn to a new friend, Julia, who is already engaged to a wealthy Wall Street broker.
