Movie Summary

Frank Coraci

Robbie Hart is a sweet guy who has given up his dreams of becoming a rock star for a more personally fulfilling career as a wedding singer. Julia Sullivan, a waitress whom Robbie befriends during a performance. Though the two have a lot in common, it seems as though they are not meant to be, both are engaged. There is only one problem: Julia doesn't know that Glenn is cheating on her! Robbie, who is helping Julia plan her wedding, knows, but can't tell her something that he knows will break her heart?
