OWwCH!! Talk about a guy get punch in the end

It's quite funny and interesting. To find love is some time vague and not always trenchant; and it may even take years to find it.

Right On Comments

The comments show a high level of understanding not seen in the clip. What strikes me most, however, is the incredible arrogance of the Wedding Singer: who is he to say whether any person will or will not find "true" love? By what standard does he judge? Maybe others have different standards? I was also infuriated by the meek way most of the people accepted his pronouncements; and I cheered when the groom gave him the punch he deserves.

thought provoking

The film itself is not very thought provoking-the comments are.
I highly agree with Sho, who basically said that marriage is not about "love", it's about a common goal and compatability to fulfilling that shared goal. Love is an incredibly overused term so much so that it seems almost to have lost all meaning.
In my limited understanding of the world and its workings, love, like happiness, is something that is developed along the way. it's not the starting point or the goal-that makes it unattainable-but what can happen when two people work together really well in that particular setting.

Because we don't know what we're looking for

Which love are we talking about here? Do we "really" know what we're looking for?

He's a good performer!

The actor/singer in this skit did a great job. The script was partly funny...lines like the sideburn lady gave me a smile. He was believable as a jaded wedding song singer! It was similiar to a Rodney Dangerfield type offbeat humor.
