The Wedding Singer
Too many times, a movie's "nice guy" gets his second-choice girl in the very last seconds of the film. In Adam Sandler's The Wedding Singer, we get to see nice guy Robbie Gould finish first. To stop his love, Julia (Drew Barrymore), from a quickie Vegas wedding with Glenn, Robbie books a first-class seat on the same flight. While on the plane, he hatches a plan with '80s rocker Billy Idol to get rid of Glenn once and for all.

In the ultimate get-the-girl scene, Billy Idol announces some in-flight entertainment. Just then, Robbie emerges from first class strumming a guitar and singing the quirky and romantic "Grow Old with You." ("I wanna make you smile whenever you're sad / Carry you around when your arthritis is bad /
Oh, all I wanna do is grow old with you.")

In the end, Robbie gets the girl and "Grow Old with You" lives on as a popular song selection at real-life weddings all over the country.
