Trivia / The Wedding Singer

  • California Doubling: The story is set in Ridgefield, Connecticut - indeed Glen works on Wall Street "in the city," presumably in Manhattan - but was filmed in California.
  • Defictionalization: A few bands have taken up the challenge of writing a song called "I Got Punched In The Nose For Sticking My Face In Other Peoples Business," the most popular one being from the emo band Boys Night Out. The closest there's ever been to a country song by that title is an indie folk track by The Man Who Loves You.
  • Playing Against Type: Up to The Wedding Singer, most of Sandler's roles had been immature guys who eventually revealed a more sensitive side. This was the first role of his to be a fairly straightforward nice-guy-with-underdog-tones, and that eventually became his new type.
  • Technology Marches On: Lampshaded; Glenn brags about buying a CD player for around $1000, and Julia promptly asks to play a record on it.
  • Uncredited Role: Carrie Fisher and Judd Apatow were both uncredited script doctors for the screenplay.
