Sander went a little too far for me in this flick. It gets some brownie points for being a sports-comedy which isn't done often and is always a good watch. I just felt like I was watching an actor too comfortable with what he had been doing. He squeezed this one in right after 'Wedding Singer' (one of his best). This movie, for me, showed the decline of Sandler from stupid-fun movies to stupid-stupid movies and finally to stupid-family movies. He does rescue himself with 'Funny People' though.

What, a movie about an underdog? Some good actors mixed in with some OK actors, and Adam Sandler. Fairuza Balk does a good job in this.

One of Sandler's less memorable characters. Barely squeezes out a few laughs.

There's a certain charm to this underdog story, but it still can't quite escape Sandler's typical annoying and whiny onscreen persona. Rob Schneider also, unfortunately, pops up a lot. Funnier than most Sandler movies, but still not great.

High Quality H2O

The Waterboy is a 1998 American comedy film directed by Frank Coraci. It stars Adam Sandler alongside Henry Winkler, Kathy Bates, Jerry Reed, and Fairuza Balk. Lynn Swann, Lawrence Taylor, Jimmy Johnson, Bill Cowher, Paul Wight, and Rob Schneider have cameos. Sandler produced the movie and co-wrote the script with Tim Herlihy.

Sandler's character, Bobby Boucher (pronounced "Boo-SHAY"), bears a strong resemblance to his "The Excited Southerner" comedic skits from his album "What the Hell Happened to Me?" The portrayal is one of a stereotypical Cajun from the bayous of South Louisiana, not the typical stereotype of a Southerner. He also shares similarities in speech and mannerism to Canteen Boy, a recurring character, also portrayed by Adam Sandler, on Saturday Night Live.Like Bobby, Can...
