In 2002, two rival Olympic ice skaters were stripped of their gold medals and permanently banned from men's single competition. Presently, however, they've found a loophole that will allow them to qualify as a pairs team.
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
Bobby was injured on the second last play of the Bourbon Bowl, resulting in an injury timeout, but then stayed in for the next play (the final one of the game). Under NCAA rules, an injured player must sit out out least one play immediately following the resulting injury timeout, unless his team elects to use of their timeouts. According to the scoreboard, the Muddogs did have one timeout remaining, but didn't use it. It is possible that the officials could have automatically charged the Muddogs their final timeout, making the final play possible, but there is no indication that they did this in the film.

You gonna add another championship trophy to the old case downstairs?
Coach Red Beaulieu:
That's kinda like my old man told me one time, Lynn. The only thing better than a crawfish dinner, is five crawfish dinners.

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.
