Silly but satisfying
This movie is a real no-brainer, but if that's what you're looking for then
this baby is right up your alley.
Adam Sandler specialises in this type of film, switch off the cerebellum and
just revel in the stupidity.
The Waterboy is not going to win any awards or even make its audience think,
but it will inspire some laughs if you let it.
As for it being similar to Happy Gilmour, you might as well say that it is
identical to half of the movies produced in Hollywood - unlikely hero comes
good, gets faced with a difficult challenge, overcomes it an wins the game
in the last few minutes! Sheesh, what movie doesn't use this formula
In short, don't expect too much from the film and you won't be
My vote 6/10
