You can mess with him. But don`t mess with his water
Certificate: 12
Running Time: 86 mins

Release Date:

Hollywood`s wild and zany funnyman, Adam Sandler (The Wedding Singer), scores big laughs in a smash comedy hit where the laughs never run dry! Just an oddball mama`s boy who grew up on a farm, Bobby Boucher (Sandler) never wanted anything more than to quench the thirst of the dehydrated athletes who treat him like dirt!

But when coach Klein (Henry Winkler - Scream) makes the call that allows Bobby to finally stand up for himself, it unleashes a torrent of bottled-up frustration... and exposes a talent for defense that transforms him from a meek "Water distribution engineer" to the hardest hitter ever to roam the athletic playing field!

Also featuring award-winning Kathy Bates (Titanic, Misery) and sexy Fairuza Bates (The Craft) in a hilarious cast of stars - here`s your chance to join the millions everywhere who`ve proudly stood and cheered for The Waterboy!

7 / 10
This is a great comedy – although it’s not for everyone. You really either love or hate Adam Sandler, and if you love him – you’ll love this. While I felt this was perhaps not quite as funny as the outstanding Happy Gilmore, this is still a great comedy. It’s just a shame about the lack of extras… I would love to hear a commentary from Sandler, or see some outtakes… but sadly – there’s nothing, not even a trailer.
