5.0 out of 5 stars Adam Sandler is Hilarious!!! Jan. 20 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I think that this is one of the funniest movies of all time. It is the best adam sandler movie right now (though a lot of his other ones are really good) and will probably stay that way. Any sandler fan will love it and even if you aren't one you could very well enjoy this film. I put it in my list of top 5 favorite movies. I don't want to tell you what it's about and ruin it for but let me tell you it was a great movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Adam Sandler's Best Nov. 28 2003
By sam
Format:VHS Tape
While funny at times, this movie is only OK at best. Some of the characters are absolutley ridiculous such as Bobby's girlfriend Vicki Valencourt, a car stealing bandit who loves Bobby for what he is and Farmer Fran, the redneck assistant football coach. This movie depicts bumbling, intelligence challenged Bobby Boucher (Adam Sandler) and his life as waterboy for Louisiana University. But his life is dramatically changed when he is fired by the mean spirited coach for getting in the way. Bobby's understatedly overprotected mom is thrilled and thinks this is the best thing since sliced bread, but Bobby is devestated. He sets out to find a new waterboying job, and is accepted at small bayou school S.C.L.S.U. One day Bobby is made fun of and literally snaps, he runs at the assailant and decks him, this earns him a spot on the team, but he can't tell his mom because she will not allow him to play. As one can easily see, this movie has absolutley no plot or story line and is definitley not Adam Sandler at his best, that is Billy Madison or Happy Gilmore.

While The Wedding Singer will probably always be my favorite Adam Sandler movie, The Waterboy is by far his funniest, and I think I actually enjoy this film more each time I watch it. It is the perfect answer for a bad day, as not only is it hilarious and uplifting, it lets you take out some of your own pent-up aggression with each powerful hit Bobby Boucher (Sandler) makes out on the football field. Bobby represents everyone who has ever been excluded, picked on, or ridiculed. While he is not an intellectual giant and does not possess what you call people skills, his kind and simple nature makes him a man among men even before he finds stardom on the gridiron. The boy certainly loves his mama, and Kathy Bates shines in her role as the overprotective, quirky, slightly touched in the head Helen Boucher. If anyone ever questioned Bates' ability to do comedy, this movie should banish all doubts. Fairuza Balk is strangely beguiling as Vicki Vallencourt, a "bad girl" who has long had an interest in Bobby over his mother´¿s objections, and the two make a really strange yet somehow logical couple. Bobby´¿s mother describes Vicki as "the devil," but of course she considers just about every person on the planet besides herself and Bobby to be "the devil."
Bobby´¿s 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not one of Sandler's better movies May 9 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Adam Sandler stars as Bobby Boucher (pronounced Booshay) who is a waterboy for a college football team in Louisiana but Coach Red (Jerry Reed) is fed up with the waterboy and he asks the assistant coach on why he didn't fire him, he tells Red that he didn't think that he was serious and later on Bobby winds up being the waterboy for a new football team and he tackles one of the football players for making fun of him and the coach (Henry Winkler) is impressed his Bobby's tackling abilities and Bobby ends up playing for the football team and there's a laugh-out-loud scene when Bobby tackles the teacher for making fun of his mama and the teacher looks alot like Colonel Sanders, later on we meet Bobby's new girlfriend Vicki Valencourt and Mama tells Bobby that she is the devil (the way she usually describes people cause her husband left her when she was pregnant with Bobby).
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Waterboy Dec 10 2002
Format:DVD
... This has to be one of my favorites from Sandler because it's a really funny movie plus there's a lot of football action and Sandler is hilarious in this movie.
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay movie. Funny
It was okay.... some laughs. Adam Sandler played a good waterboy, Henry Winkler sure played up the goofy football coach. But then he is a good in most funny roles.
