The Waterboy

DOWN & DIRTY:
Comedy: A socially inept 31-year-old water boy becomes a tackling sensation when he starts playing football for the local college team.

NITTY GRITTY:
Bobby Boucher (ADAM SANDLER) is a socially inept, 31-year-old man who still lives with his overprotective Mama (KATHY BATES) in their Louisiana bayou home.

Bobby is the waterboy for the Cougars, the state's best team, then he gets fired by coach Red Beaulieu (JERRY REED) for "being stupid" and distracting the players.

Dejected, Bobby approaches Coach Klein (HENRY WINKLER) of the South Central LSU football team and asks to be the team's waterboy. Klein, who suffered a nervous breakdown after Red stole his play book years earlier, is still a basket case. The team hasn't won a game in years so Klein gives Bobby the job.

Arriving on the field, the football players start to pick on Bobby. Klein tells him he should stand up for himself or he'll be walked over for the rest of his life. The next time a player teases him, Bobby's years of taking abuse boil over and he races onto the field and tackles a player with a bone-jarring hit.

Coach Klein is stunned along with the football players. Klein sensing Bobby's potential, wants him to play on the team, but must first convince Bobby's Mama. She, wants nothing of the sorts for her son, and refuses to grant let Bobby play.

After another talk with Coach Klein Bobby decides to try out for the team and soon becomes a big football star.

Bobby tries to keep his playing a secret from his Mama, while also dealing with his "girlfriend," Vicki Vallencourt (FAIRUZA BALK), who's just been released from jail.

Bobby's team is matched up against his old boss Coach Red Beaulieu and the Cougars for the championship.

THE ENDING:
Bobby is kicked off the team after the Cougar coach informs them that Bobby doesn't have a high school diploma. Bobby studies hard and gets his GED.

Bobby rejoins the team and beats his old nemesis Coach Red Beaulieu.

WHAT EVERYONE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT:
Kathy Bates is a hoot as Bobby's mama.
