I grew up watching this movie.  See, I come from the era in which Adam Sandler is one of the true comedians and hilarious people.  I watched him on Saturday Night Live and I watched as he switched over to movies.  He was one of the constants in my life when it came to humor.  Now, he’s not so funny anymore.  It’s sad and it might even seem offensive to you if you liked his recent movies (Funny People being the magnificent exception).  Yet it’s true that he’s not as funny anymore.  But take a trip back to when he was the funniest cat around and do it today in high definition!

Starting this August 4th, now available on Blu-ray Disc from Touchstone Home Entertainment comes one of Adam Sandler’s funniest comedies of all time.  The Waterboy – Blu-ray Disc is ready to splash out of your television screen and pour a huge bucket of hilarious into your living room.  Bring home this comedy classic today in high definition!

Bobby Boucher grew up on the bayou and loves water.  Not just boating on it or swimming in it, but creating great water and serving it to the athletes at his school.  They hate him, but he tolerates it.  Until he decides he can’t take it any longer and he takes out his aggression with some great football moves.  Now Bobby is the new star of the football team.  But can he handle his fame, his mother, his girlfriend and his anger issues all at the same time?  This movie stars Henry Winkler, Jerry Reed, Kathy Bates, Fairuza Balk and Adam Sandler.

The only special features included in this Blu-ray Disc are subtitles, surround sound and high definition.  That is nothing short of disappointing.  This movie is hilarious and one of the funniest of my childhood.  And there aren’t any special features worth putting on this Blu-ray?  That disappoints me greatly.

This movie is a comedic masterpiece.  I laugh more every single time I watch this movie.  Since I’ve watched it over fifteen times, I just about laugh through the entire thing.  It’s this movie that showcases the best of what made Adam Sandler just so incredible.  There are the funny voices, the weird faces and the incredibly strange yet endearing characters.  That’s what made his comedy so unique and memorable, just like Jim Carrey made contortionism hilarious.  Once you become known for something strange like that, that’s the thing that defines you in your comedy.  When you drift away from it, or rely too heavily on it, the humor disappears.  Catch a great movie made before when that happened.

There’s no Watering it down – you’ll love this movie.

This Blu-ray Disc is available at Amazon.com.
