Adam Schankman's lighthearted, somewhat goofy romantic comedy The Wedding Planner has an appropriately romantic soundtrack featuring songs by Lisa Stansfield, Sister Hazel, Dan Finnerty, and excerpts of Mervyn Warren's score. Jessica Riddle's "Symphony," Jessica Sheely's "In Good Time," and Mishelle Bradford-Jones' "Life Is What You Make It" are some of the album's pop highlights, but the soundtrack's cleverest touch is the addition of songs like John Denver's "Annie's Song" and Olivia Newton John's "I Honestly Love You," both mainstays of wedding receptions. Though it's unfortunate that The Wedding Planner's soundtrack doesn't include any musical contributions from the film's star Jennifer Lopez, it's still a fairly entertaining collection of love songs.
