Movie Info

Two years before he joined the cast of Saturday Night Live, Adam Sandler starred in this comedy as Shecky Moskowitz, who wants to get a job as a comedian on a cruise ship, but when that job is taken, signs on as a waiter instead, hoping fate will lend a hand. The cast also includes Burt Young, Peter Berg, Billy Zane, and a then-unknown Billy Bob Thornton. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

...a slapdash and thoroughly amateurish piece of work that suffers from a total dearth of positive attributes.

When a star becomes really successful, the public is inundated with every scrap of celluloid he ever worked on as he learned his craft, and such is the case with this Adam Sandler vehicle.

Couldn't get this one banned, Sandler?

Audience Reviews for Going Overboard

Despite the interesting choice of cast line up, and the fact that it's Sandler's first film, this movie was pretty bad. You're probably wondering why I even gave it two and half stars. Well, because I actually enjoyed some parts, and Sandler himself was a charming young man. Overall, though, I wouldn't recommend it unless you're a die hard fan of him.

Movies pretty horrible, even for a low-budget film. It's seriously hard to get any worse. Adam Sandler is the man, but, this movie did what it was titled.. it went overboard, way before it started going!
