This is Guilty pleasures at it's best right here. Adam Sandler's Water Boy is about a lowly water boy for a local college team becomes the new star player when the coach discovers his talent for tackling whenever he's put down. This movie is silly and really stupid, but at the same time it has heart and Adam Sandler did good in this movie.

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.

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...
