    Rog was off on The Siege…. that movie was both a realistic and eerily prophetic take on the material at hand. I wonder if he revised his thoughts on it post 9/11.

    Waterboy was not Sandler’s finest hour, but considering what would follow, it looks pretty good in comparison. And I really enjoyed Kathy Bates as Mama and Fairuza Balk as the white trash girlfriend.

    Well… I agreed with Siskel and Ebert about “The Waterboy”. It was dumb, really dumb. But I kind of like it a little bit. I think they were too hard on Adam Sandler. Sure he’s an annoying comedian, but I thought as Bobby Boucher was a nice guy and a mean guy by losing his temper.
    So tha’s about it.

    The Waterboy 2.5/4
