The Wedding Singer is making headlines this week to remind us that it's 20 years old and that we're old AF.
The romantic comedy starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore made its theatrical debut on Feb. 13, 1998. It tells the adorable yet hilarious story of Robbie Hart, a wedding singer in the 1980s who falls in love with Julia Sullivan, a young waitress.
With Sandler and Barrymore as the lead stars, it's a no-brainer that The Wedding Singer is an ultimate favorite for millennials. But since everything's not perfect in life, we bet that you never noticed the following mistakes in the movie.
#1 Julia's wedding day
In the movie, the proud, soon-to-be bride, Julia, keeps saying that her wedding will be on "Sunday, August 5th." In reality, the movie takes place in 1985 and August 5th in that year actually fell on a Monday.
#2 That's not a real band!
This was a continuous error in the movie! For example, in the scene where the band was auditioning "Ladies Nights" for Julia's wedding, the trumpet players aren't really playing. Another example is in the Bar-mitzvah scene, where Boy George is playing the clarinet. In both scenes, the instrument sounds actually came from a synthesizer as opposed to a real instrument.
#3 Billy Idol's age
Billy Idol also makes an appearance in the movie, but truthfully, he looked too old for his scene set in the '80s! The flick took place in a 1985 setting when Idol was 30 years old. The movie, however, was filmed in the late '90s when Idol was 43 years old. So here we have 43-year-old Idol portraying 30-year-old Idol.
There are many more film errors in The Wedding Singer as unearthed by the website, Movie Mistakes.
