Review of Going Overboard

If you thought Adam Sandler was bad in "Jack and Jill", "That's My Boy" or any of the other crap that he's put out recently, wait until you see what he was like in his very first movie! When this film came out it didn't get noticed, but after Sandler became famous during his stint on "Saturday Night Live" and later struck gold with "Billy Madison" and "Happy Gilmore", it was unleashed to the unsuspecting public on VHS. In fact, this is the one movie that Sandler felt really ashamed about his appearance in it, that he doesn't even list it on his official website. After watching it, you can definitely see why. The whole thing looks very ugly considering its low-budget, the comedy was extremely unfunny, some scenes take way too long to pad out the running time and the improvisation felt very forced. I was shocked to see Billy Zane and Billy Bob Thornton pop up in small roles before they were even famous, and even Burt Young (aka Paulie from the "Rocky" franchise) was dragged into this nightmare, though I think he only did that film because he was low on money in between that series. Through it all, this movie deserves to be a regular on the IMDb Bottom 100, and you should never ever watch it, not even if you're a die-hard Adam Sandler fan.
