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.

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, …
