I should point out a few things, first. I am not an Adam Sandler fan. In fact, I'm not a fan of most movies or TV shows that star Saturday Night Live alumni, from Chevy Chase up to Will Ferrell, so I don't know what possessed me to watch this movie in the first place. I'm glad I did. This is easily one of the funniest movies that stars someone from SNL and ranks right up there with The Blues Brothers, Caddyshack, and Ghostbusters. What especially helps with this movie are the performances by Kathy Bates, Henry Winkler, Fairuza Balk, and Jerry Reed (indeed, Bates and Winkler are hilarious, Balk is hot, and Reed is very effective as the antagonist), as well as the great cameos from sports celebrities including Dan Fouts, Brent Musburger, Chris Fowler, Dan Patrick, Lawrence Taylor, Bill Cowher, and Jimmy Johnson.

And let me be clear: I am a "thinking or educated person". My favorite comedy is Dr Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. I'm also a huge fan of Laurel and Hardy, Buster Keaton, Monty Python movies, Young Frankenstein, Annie Hall, screwball comedies from the Golden Age of Hollywood, and the British political comedy Yes, Minister (and Yes, Prime Minister).

Yes, The Waterboy is a goofy movie but a funny one!

The "Comedy" classification somehow doesn't fit this movie, in my opinion. Comedy is funny because it fits somehow into one's experience; it is real life revealed.

This story is contrived; it's a cartoon that isn't animated. The only element in the plot that happens in real life, seems to me, is Mom not untying the apron strings, and that element isn't treated with any true humor.

For any thinking or educated person, this movie is a waste of time, in my opinion.

This is easily one of my favorite Adam Sandler movies. This movie will keep you laughing from start to finish, a must see for any Adam Sandler fan. And worth watching for any comedy fan.
