Bobby's real passion in life is his job as waterboy for the local college football team, a real powerhouse coached by Coach Red Beaulieu (Jerry Reed). When he gets fired, he goes seeking water management employment at South Central Louisiana State University, a legendarily bad team coached by Coach Klein, a very un-Fonzie-like Henry Winkler. When Coach Klein convinces Bobby to defend himself against the taunts of team members, he finds himself looking at a natural-born linebacker.Read more ›
Bobby Boucher (prenounced 'Booshay') is a simple, accademically challenged loner who has a mad obsesion with water. When he is fired from his position as waterboy from the college football team, he to offer his services to the 'Mud Dogs'. When he loses his temper in practice and tackles one of the players, the coach immediately puts him on the team, against the will of his overprotective mama.
The acting in this film is supurb especially from Kathy Bates (Mama), Fairuza Balk (Viki), and Henry Winkler (Coach Klein). However for me it's Sandler who makes the film what it is. His performance is amazing as the stuttering 'simpleton' Bobby Boucher, who represents all the people who have ever been bullied, picked on or made fun of and while his solution to the problem would not be quite so practicalin real life, we can certainly enjoy watching it (and the after affects).
Although this film is extreamly funny there is as i have mentioned earlier a much more serious side to it. This film is about overcoming the odds and believing in yourself enough to that. I'm sure you will agree that Bobby Boucher is an inspiration to us all.
For any fans of Adam Sandler then this movie is a real treat and is a must-have. I promise you, you will laugh harder every time you watch it.
