my help to figure
What's the story?
Adam Sandler, playing a waterboy who is ridiculed by everyone from his mother to his wrestling hero, finds a mentor in Coach Klein (Henry Winkler), who teaches him how to take out his rage on the football field while gaining his independence and becoming a man. (Well, more than Coach Klein has a hand in the "becoming a man" part.)
So how is it? (Get to the point, already)
Adam Sandler has made predictable movies with worn out plots an artform. While not as good as Billy Madison or The Wedding Singer, The Waterboy is on par with Happy Gilmore and better than the mediocre Bulletproof.
If you haven't seen any of these movies, you probably have no idea what I'm talking about. Oh well, at least your shit doesn't stink.

What are you selling us here???
Like most Sandler movies, its main product placement is the soundtrack. I 'spose bottled water and Roy Orbison ass-tattoos didn't come out too badly, either. Just stay away from the Gatorade.
If it won an Oscar, what would it be?
"Movie no one in the world would expect to win an Oscar" - The Waterboy
On a scale of 1-10?
