Henry Winkler's role as Coach Klein came about after he was mentioned in Adam Sandler's huge hit "The Chanukah Song", where Sandler sang about various Jewish or half-Jewish entertainers. Sandler said, correctly, that the actor who played Arthur "Fonzie" Fonzarelli on Happy Days (1974) is Jewish, and Winkler was thrilled by the reference and contacted Sandler to tell him so. Sandler then decided to ask Winkler if he would read the script for the coach's role, and then say if he wanted to take the part. Winkler did so and immediately signed on to the film. See more »
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.

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%.
