The Waterboy Movie Review Summary

Actors: Adam Sandler, Kathy Bates, Henry Winkler

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Waterboy

Adam Sandler plays a college student who starts out as the waterboy for his football team. He is made fun of so much that one day he suddenly snaps and lays a big hurt (sorry, Frank Thomas) on the mockers. The coach likes that so much that he offers Sandler a spot on the team. After that, he becomes a lean, mean, hard-hitting sack machine. In fact, he sets an NCAA record for most sacks in a game (11 in one game). Of course, this is an Adam Sandler film, so get ready to laugh out loud at his wild and crazy antics!

This movie bases a story of a strange waterboy. He seeks revenge for his bad youth as a waterboy by playing against his former coach while fighting family battles too. Events often done in a funny manner.
