Overview

Bobby Boucher (Adam Sandler), the much-abused waterboy of a successful college football team, gets fired but finds his true calling as a player for the neighboring down-and-out team. Unfortunately, his Momma doesn't approve of football (or as she calls it, foosball) and Bobby has to keep his gridiron success a secret. One of Sandler's biggest hits, featuring a group of bizarre Cajun characters and a sweetly goofy plot.

Synopsis:
Adam Sandler is charming and disarming as he dusts off and mashes together his beloved SNL charcters Cajun Man and Canteen Boy to create Bobby Boucher, the sweet-tempered, simple-minded, bayou man-child who relishes his job of eighteen years as the much-abused waterboy for the local "good" (well-funded but nasty of spirit) university's football team. True to the appropriate cine-formula, there is also a nearby "bad" (under-funded but generous of spirit) university where Bobby seeks tenure after finally being driven away from his long-time place of employment by the relentless cruelty of those whom he seeks only to refresh and hydrate. It is under the kindly tutelage of the "lesser" university's down-and-out football coach (Henry Winkler phones it in, but warmly) that Bobby realizes his unusual athletic prowess and develops some basic people skills. Kathy Bates has an enormous amount of fun, and is a laugh riot, as Bobby's earthy, over-protective, swamp-shack-dwelling mom; and Fairuza Balk is accessibly luscious in a Daisy Mae turn as Bobby's resourceful, tomboyish, creole-cutie sweetheart. Deadpan delivery, satisfying sight gags, and "elbow-your-neighbor-and-point-at-the-screen" cameos make this an attractive option for fans of the genre.

Reviews:

"...Adam Sandler has scored himself a buoyantly silly sports farce..." - 11/27/1998 USA Today, p.6E


"...Loony, unapologetic fun....This escapist comedy is so cheerfully outlandish that it's hard to resist, and so good-hearted that it's genuinely endearing..." - 11/06/1998 New York Times, p.E18


"...Filled to overflowing with the baffling surrealism and wacky wit that are the hallmarks of Sandler's brand of comedy....For a wellspring of loony laughs, see THE WATERBOY..." - 12/01/1998 Box Office, p.43
