    Nostalgic Value is off the charts! Great movie everyone should see it at least once. If you like sports this one will really hit the spot its a great mix of comedy and action.

    An Adam Sandler classic. It's regarded as one of his best, and I agree. A classic that's hilarious and a must watch whether your a Sandler fan or not.

    The funniest of all Sandler's films. Yes, Waterboy is even funnier than Happy Gilmore. The characters are all developed well and each of them delivers a different twist on a personality type.

    Yeah, it's sweet. Also; Kevin Spacey is the man. Note: I am aware he is not in this movie.

    Now this is comedy. The Medulla oblongata part was genius.

    The Perrier of dumb-and-dumber movies, an effervescent idiot's delight that burbles from the wellspring of silliness inside star Adam Sandler's head.

    Sandler is making a tactical error when he creates a character whose manner and voice has the effect of fingernails on a blackboard, and then expects us to hang in there for a whole movie.
