Bobby Boucher is the lowly waterboy for a college football team, until the coach discovers his amazing talent for tackling people much bigger than him. He signs the Waterboy as the new star player, but Bobby must keep it secret from his overbearing and domineering mother.Written by
The Medulla Oblongata scene was shot at Florida Southern College in Lakeland Florida and actual students played the extras. See more »
When Bobby first meets Coach Klein, the coach is drawing up a play on the chalkboard and describing it. The offense is represented by Os on the upper part of the chalkboard, and they are moving the ball downwards. Coach Klein uses the terms "left" and "right" from his perspective looking at the board, however football plays are always described in terms of the direction the offense is facing. So he is using totally backwards directions in describing the play.
He also draws 12 players on offense. NCAA football has 11 players on each side of the ball. See more »
Oh Come ON!! This was not meant to be high art..just great fun
All of the characters were well developed and entertaining. This movie never pretended to be anything more than it was..a fun, wacky comedy with a bizarre plot. Anyone who beats this up for being dumb should be taken out back and paddled. It is obvious THEY are too dumb to realize that this was DESIGNED to be dumb. Anyway..there are too many scenes that I STILL laugh at today, even though I have seen this 1/2 dozen times. So, if you are looking for the greatest film ever made on all levels..give this a pass..if you can relate to the humor, it's a wonderful hoot! I am not a die hard Adam Sandler fan, but I think he scored a 10 in this one for likability and laughs.
