Can you believe that this movie was, at some point, the highest grossing sports comedy of all time? For some reasons, I didn’t manage to watch it completely the first time around so I had to watch it all over again but, surprisingly, it became almost watchable the 2nd time around.

31-year-old waterboy, Bobby Boucher (Adam Sandler) is constantly tormented by the team he works for until he is fired by the coach. He then finds a new coach to work for. Here he finds a new talent, tackling people by pretending they're making fun of them. Soon, he becomes the best linebacker in college football, but he must keep it secret from his overprotective mother (Kathy Bates).

Movies the giraffe watched in 2017: March (55 movies items)

"Re-watch - March 9th I can't remember the last time I watched The Waterboy, a fact which is complicated by the number of times I've come across it on TV in the years since its release & only caught part of it. Some of it is still hilarious to me, while other parts now fall flat for me. The acting is certainly a mixed bag, but let's face it Sandler's comedies tend to be that way especially with his persistent use of the same mediocre actors in his films. Fortunately I still enjoy it more often t"

Still, as usual with Sandler, it was rather worthless though. Basically, it turned out to be some kind of mix between ‘Happy Gilmore’ and ‘Forrest Gump’ and, obviously, this mix was terribly misguided and rather offensive. I mean, I have never been a fan of  ‘Forrest Gump’ in the first place but, to turn it into some crass comedy like this one was just terrible. As usual, Sandler played his typical cringe-inducing character but, this time, it was even worse since he was playing some kind of mentall” read more
