In the German version, Adam Sandler is not dubbed by Dietmar Wunder as usual. Instead, the German Disney subsidiary used comedian Matthias Knop to perform the dubbing. At the time, Knop was successful with his character "Super-Ritchie" (a kind of extremely dumb-minded version of Superman) and he performed the dubbing in the same manner of speech as his "Super-Ritchie" character. The film was widely panned by critics and audiences alike and the dubbing is regarded as one of the worst in history. See more »

The Waterboy is one of Adam Sandlers best comedy films.
Now I am a huge fan of Adam Sandlers dumb-ass films but I think that is why people have let him a have a career so long. They just love his dumb-ass movies. The movie centres around the local water boy who when the coach of the football team notices he can tackle hard when mad he puts him as the new quarterback of tackeler guy sorry I am Australian. The movie is good on many pointers as it shows that Adam Sandler can play 2 different types of dumb guys, nice dumb and guys and mean dumb guys. If you have not already seen this you should take some time to seat down and enjoy the movie. Overall this movie is a fun excuse to seat down and dumb out but I can see why people would not like this film. I rate this film 83%.
