Everybody appreciates a good '80s flashback. Who doesn't like to reminisce about trends like acid wash jeans, big hair and Day-Glo sweatshirts? The 1998 comedy "The Wedding Singer" is one of the best nostalgia films dedicated to the 1980s, but it's also a classic wedding flick as well.

The year is 1985, and Robbie Hart (Adam Sandler), a wedding singer, meets sweet waitress Julia (Drew Barrymore) at one of his gigs. Both are engaged to the wrong people, and after several humorous events, including a kiss using only "church tongue," the pair discovers they're in love. The ending is one of our favorites; not only does it include a cameo by rock star Billy Idol, but who can resist singing along to Robbie's good-humored ballad "Grow Old with You"?
