How The Wedding Singer Movie Makes You Believe In True Love And Happily Ever After?

(*Warning for possible spoilers for The Wedding Singer 1998 American romantic comedy film)

The Wedding Singer is about this guy who gets his heart broken, but who eventually meets someone that makes him happy and that he wants to spend the rest of his life with.

The Wedding Singer is pretty funny

The Wedding Singer isn’t really a comedy, that is to say, it’s not something that will make you laugh every other scene or at regular intervals, but it does have some pretty amusing scenes that, though it might not make you laugh out loud, can bring a smile to your face.

Who is Rosie?

One of the characters that does a really good job of making you smile is Rosie (played by Ellen Albertini Dow). She’s really quite adorable and amusing, so much so that every scene she appears in can really make you grin.

She’s a friend of the title character named Robbie Hart (played by Adam Sandler). She may be old, but she’s still so energetic and lively and even feisty. She takes singing lessons from Robbie so she can sing for her husband during their 50th wedding anniversary.

Rosie will make you smile

Rosie’s appearances in The Wedding Singer may be meant to get the audience to crack a smile (like when she puts meatballs on Robbie’s bare hands or pretty much anytime she opens her mouths and talks, really), but, much more than being so adorably amusing, I found her character to also be really sweet and heartwarming.

It’s in the way that she took the effort and the time to learn how to sing for her wedding anniversary. This really shows that she’s very happily married and that she really loves her husband very much.

True love is possible as The Wedding Singer shows

And that’s so sweet and heartwarming because Rosie and her husband show that it’s possible for a couple to stay together through thick and thin. They can grow old and yet still live happily together.

The couple serves as a very good example for Robbie and Julia Sullivan (played by Drew Barrymore), the main female character and Robbie’s love interest.

Don’t you want to grow old with the one you love?

This is why the song that Robbie sings for Julia about wanting to grow old with her is even more meaningful and poignant because isn’t that what most people would want?

Wouldn’t they want someone they can spend the rest of their life with and who would still love them and want to be with them even if they don’t look young and beautiful anymore?

Some might think that such a thing isn’t possible, but Rosie and her husband prove these people wrong as they defy the odds and remain happily married no matter what.
