The Waterboy (1998) was the highest-grossing football/sports film of all time, before being beaten by The Blind Side (2009). Kathy Bates stars in both as well. See more »

You gonna add another championship trophy to the old case downstairs?
Coach Red Beaulieu:
That's kinda like my old man told me one time, Lynn. The only thing better than a crawfish dinner, is five crawfish dinners.

I really liked the Waterboy. It was crude, raw, and utterly funny. Adam Sandler gives his funniest yet since his 1995 cult hit Billy Madison. In this feel good movie, Sandler plays a dumb waterboy who gets on a football team and becomes a damn good tackler. Everything in this film is funny, from beginning to end. Henry Winkler has his best in years as a down on his luck coach and Kathy Bates is Dead Pan funny as mama. Great all around. A+
