News & Interviews for The Waterboy
Critic Reviews for The Waterboy
The formulaic mix of mirth and mayhem is aimed way down the MTV food chain...
The direction is as blunt and vacant as the plotting, the jokes are obvious and the performances (with a couple of exceptions) charmless.
The film is amiably goofy.
As a satire on the only true religion of the American South -- football -- The Waterboy is delightful.
Sandler makes the laughs go down easy, even if The Waterboy isn't exactly quality H2O.
Audience Reviews for The Waterboy
Often the funniest aspect of Adam Sandler movies, the biggest joke, is the most irritating as well: that he and his crew are laughing at the audience and the film industry simultaneously. Waterboy is one example of this conceit in spades, and like many of his efforts in this vein is notable for just how not funny it achieves.
One of Sandler's best loved movies of the 90s, this comedy is fun, humourous, and full of life. Of course there are a good number of stupid jokes in it too, but overall it's very funny.
