What's Wrong With Robbie Hart Trying To Apply For A Job In The Wedding Singer Movie?

Saturday, March 4, 2017
(Warning for possible spoilers for The Wedding Singer 1998 American romantic comedy film, which is about this guy who is heartbroken because of something that happened to him. He searches for love and happiness, but will he find what he’s looking for?)

The proper way to search for a job

When you’re looking for a job, do you stop trying to apply when the first place you go to rejects you? Or do you keep on trying, looking into other places where you might be able to find a job?

The Wedding Singer tries and fails to get a job

One of the scenes in The Wedding Singer movie involves Robbie Hart (played by Adam Sandler), the title character, trying to get a job. Since he doesn’t really have any experience with this, he understandably fails the job interview.

Of course, that didn’t stop him from trying to talk the guy who interviewed him into giving him the job anyway or at least giving him some business cards.

Did The Wedding Singer really try his best to find a job?

After that scene though, I had to wonder if that was the only place where Robbie tried to get a job. If that’s the case, I have to wonder why he didn’t bother trying to get a job elsewhere.

Sometimes, one might get lucky enough to be able to get a job at the very first place that they apply to. But, at other times, one might need to apply to a lot of different places before they can get a job.

So, if Robbie was really determined to get a job and earn some big money to impress Julia Sullivan (played by Drew Barrymore), the girl whom he likes and loves, then why did he give up so easily after just one failure?

Why did he just go back home without trying out other places? Or is it that he did try other places but that he just didn’t get jobs there either?

This scene with Robbie trying to get a job and being interviewed seems to have been done only for comic relief purposes since said incident was kind of funny and this job thing isn’t really mentioned ever again (it’s pretty much forgotten in favor of other scenes) as the movie focuses more on other things. What do you think about it?
