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.

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.

The Waterboy is a simple tale about how a simple guy goes from being a picked-on "water distribution engineer" to superstar college "foosball" player. This role is tailor-made for Adam Sandler, who makes a good living acting stupid onscreen. OK, your opinion about this film will probably hinge entirely on whether you find Bobby Boucher (Sandler)'s voice - complete with stutter - hilarious or annoying. I think it's hilarious, but this film has so much more! Alot of the comedy is sight gags, and the football scenes are especially well done. Sorry, but EVERYONE should laugh when Bobby drop-kicks "Number 62". The supporting cast do well too, with Henry Winkler providing a few laughs as Bobby's wimpy coach. This is the prototypical Adam Sandler movie: he plays a lovable loser who rises to the challenge and gets the girl (see Billy Madison, Big Daddy, Happy Gilmore, Little Nicky...), but if it ain't broke, why fix it? I give this 4 out of 5. Could have been 5, but a few of the jokes miss, and as usual, some of the acting is less than good.

I wasn't sure if I was going to like this movie because I thought it was going to be another tacky and tasteless movie by another "Saturday Night Live" alum. In "The WaterBoy", Adam Sandler is the "SNL" alum. However, I liked this movie and actually thought it was pretty funny. Adam Sandler plays Bobby Boucher, a dimwitted waterboy for the University of Louisiana's football team. Bobby Boucher lacks social skills and is always ridiculed and picked on by the football players. After having had enough of Bobby's stupidity, Coach Red fires him. Bobby Boucher immediately seeks another waterboy position and gets hired by Coach Klein (who heads South Central Louisiana State University's football team). Soon, this crazy coach puts Bobby on the team when he sees how powerful Bobby becomes when he gets angry ("tackling fuel" as Coach Klein puts it). Now that Bobby is on the team, he helps them move from last place to first place. He also gets the chance to go to college and improve his social skills with his new-found friends. This movie was good because Bobby Boucher was an inspiration to his fans, his teammates, and most importantly, to Coach Klein. Bobby inspires Coach Klein to stand up against his long-time arch-rival (Coach Red) who stole his treasured book of game plans in order to get the head football coach position at the University of Louisiana. Coach Klein finally stands up against Coach Red and regains his manhood. This movie was also good because it contained lots of funny supporting characters like Bobby's crazy, in-and-out of jail girlfriend Vicki Vallencourt, a coach that talked gibberish, Coach Klein (played by Harry Winkler), and Mama Boucher (played by Kathy Bates).Read more ›

I have only seen a couple of Adam Sandler movies, and there is certainly some humor in each one, as well as some really goofy stuff. But Waterboy really had me rolling. Not the whole thing, but there were so many scenes that made me laugh out loud. Another online review says they can't understand what's so funny about the character Farmer Fran: it's because you can't understand anything he says with that ridiculous heavy Cajun accent!!! Everytime you see Bobby's house, you hear "The Devil Went Down To Georgia". That was funny! Sure, it was repetitious, but that was what made it so funny. (Don't you people have "inside jokes" with your friends? Don't they always make you laugh?) The 1970's flashback with Jerry Reed and Henry Winkler was a killer! How about the cheerleaders for this pathetic team? Driven to drinking during the games! Kathy Bates played a very strange woman (and cook), and she even kept a mule (I think)in the house. A mule. OK, it was a predictable, stupid movie. But, man, it was funny! My wife won't watch it, but then she liked "You've Got Mail".
