Audience Reviews for Waterboys
Ridiculously funny...!!! I can't count how many laughs I have while watching this movie because it was hilarious and yes it is ridiculous.. Maybe it is not the best movie you've ever seen, but surely it is one of the funniest movie you'll ever see..
Waterboys, having no relation to Adam Sandler, is truly a film festival-ish movie. Director, Shinobu Yaguchi, comes through with a film about a group of high school students setting up a MALE synchronized swim team. Hence WaterBOYS.
The plot is easy to follow and while it may sound dull and feministic, this is an entertaining comedy.
The comedy may not be the funniest stuff in the world, but it is no doubt funny. The thing that contributes to the success of this picture is that the comedy is consistent. This film never dries up and turns into a drama.
Synchronized swimming is the main concept of the story, but it isn't "professional," like bobsledding is in Cool Runnings. This deals with a group of high school kids that have never done this before and the film revolves the unique training techniques they go through to put on an entertaining, not professional, performance for the finale of the film.
All the actors, especially the 5 male leads, put on entertaining performances. They are upbeat and this is fitting for a comedy of this caliber. Just beware of the cross dressers. Yep, there are a couple of cross dressers. One of the main characters is even gay. Don't let any of this chase you away though.
Waterboys may not sound like your type of film at first, but you will be missing out on an entertaining piece of work if you pass it up.
