The Waterboy (1998)

the-waterboy-movie-poster-1998-1020230790

A waterboy for a college football team discovers he has a unique tackling ability and becomes a member of the team. (IMDb)
Mostly just really juvenile and unfunny, from Sandler’s annoying schtick (though his extravagant water obsession as a “water distribution engineer” brought lots of laughs) to the childish “bayou bumpkin” stereotypes to the eye-rolling talking heads gag. The sports storyline is also completely predictable, of course, though the requisite climactic game is admittedly done quite well, from the halftime turnaround (“Remember the time Bobby Boucher showed up at halftime?”) to the goofy announcers.
5.5/10 (Poor)
