Gulp it down and laugh it up as riotous Adam Sandler (50 FIRST DATES, PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE, THE WEDDING SINGER) rushes to the end zone in the sidesplitting comedy THE WATERBOY -- now surging onto Blu-ray Disc(TM) for the first time ever! Oddball mama's boy Bobby Boucher (Sandler) wants nothing more than to quench the thirst of the dehydrated athletes who treat him like dirt! But when he suddenly unleashes a torrent of bottled-up frustration, a talent for tackling transforms Bobby from meek "water distribution engineer" to the gridiron's most powerful weapon! Dive into wacky, bust-a-gut hilarity as the razor-sharp visuals and spectacularly enhanced sound quality leave you laughing so hard, you'll be gasping for breath! Also featuring Henry Winker (TV's HAPPY DAYS, SCREAM), Academy Award(R) winner Kathy Bates (MISERY: Best Actress, 1990; ABOUT SCHMIDT; TITANIC) and sexy Fairuza Balk (ALMOST FAMOUS, RETURN TO OZ, THE CRAFT), THE WATERBOY will flood your senses and float your boat as never before in Blu-ray(TM) High Definition.
Adam Sandler vaulted into the $20-million-salary stratosphere with this, his second $100-million hit in 1998--a movie that further shows just how deeply embedded he is in the Jerry Lewis tradition of idiot comedy. He plays Bobby Boucher, a backwoods Cajun and a mentally challenged individual with a fixation on water: specifically, on serving the coolest, most refreshing H2O available to the college football team he has served since he was an adolescent. But when he's fired from his position, he takes up a similar job with a lowlier college team coached by neurotic Henry Winkler. One day at practice, Bobby loses his temper and delivers a bone-shaking tackle to the starting quarterback; before he can say, "blackened crawdads," he's the star of the team and leading it to a bowl game. But it's all against the wishes of his overprotective mother (Kathy Bates), who wants to keep her Bobby to herself--and that includes keeping him away from the floozy girlfriend (Fairuza Balk) who's sweet on him. There are two kinds of people in this world: People who find Sandler funny and people who view him as a neon-lit symbol of the decline of popular taste. You know who you are and, based on that, you can decide whether this is a movie for you. --Marshall Fine --This text refers to the DVD edition.See all Product Description

Bobbyï¿½s real passion in life is his job as waterboy for the local college football team, a real powerhouse coached by Coach Red Beaulieu (Jerry Reed). When he gets fired, he goes seeking water management employment at South Central Louisiana State University, a legendarily bad team coached by Coach Klein, a very un-Fonzie-like Henry Winkler. When Coach Klein convinces Bobby to defend himself against the taunts of team members, he finds himself looking at a natural-born linebacker.Read more ›
Overall I didn't think that the Waterboy was one of Adam Sandler's better movies cause his voice gets kind of annoying after a while but since I am a fan of Adam Sandler's work, I'm going to give this movie 3.5 stars instead of 3.
Sandler is Bobby Boucher, a 31 year old still living with his mama waterboy. Boucher gets fired from the big league university he was waterboy for and is then forced to find a new waterboy position and he finds his way to SCLSU (South Central Louisiana State University) and the SCLSU Mud Dawgs football. As soon as he gets there, it's the same situation... the players are picking on him. His coach (Henry Winkler) then tells Bobby to fight back or they'll do it forever. So with his coach's advice, Bobby fights back and shows his teammates who's boss. Winkler being impressed with Bobby's tackling ability when he's mad uses that and makes him their new starting Linebacker.
Trutyhfully, Sandler stretched for this one because his character was unlike any of his orher characters. Sandler was funny in almost a DUmb and Dumber sense along with the on field comedy during the football games was also hilarious. I'd suggest this to anyone because it's a great movie for laughs and some good ole' football.
If you're looking for other roles where Sandler is more than just a regualr guy (like in Big Daddy), check out LITTLE NICKY because that one is also very funny and Sandler makes an acting stretch for that role as well. In any case, drink your Water and check out the Waterboy!
