When reporting on the final game, the ESPN announcer mentions that it is "the first annual Bourbon Bowl." Yet in the next scene, a patch that reads "The Bourbon Bowl 50th Anniversary 1948-1998" is clearly sewn onto the football jersey worn by Bobby Boucher. See more »
[after watching Bobby tackle a player]
Look at Bobby tackle. I haven't seen a tackle like that since Joe Montana.
Joe Montana was a quarterback, you idiot.
I said Joe Mantegna.

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%.
