The Waterboy Review


Very Good
In the great tradition of football comedies as Necessary Roughness, Adam Sandler stars as Bobby Boucher in The Waterboy, a bumbling fool with a bad stutter. We first see Bobby as the team water boy for a championship college football team. He is tormented and ridiculed so badly, that the coach fires him because he distracts the players (they always want to beat him up). Bobby looks to the coach of the nearby team, with a losing streak of 41 games, to hire him, and he does out of pity. One day, Bobby can't take it anymore. He tackles a player and discovers that he has the ability to tackle the crap out of people.
