A trio of "the Singer on wedding" again in the collection! Now they gathered the new Comedy "waterboy" or as pointed to pirate media water carrier.

Director Frank Coraci first success came just after his first praised by the critics and the audience romantic Comedy "the Singer on wedding". With painting "waterboy" the Director is not far from the genre of romance, there and the love line and line relationships "mother-son" about what says the official name, but there are sports romanticism. Well, who wouldn't in the final match to become a hero bringing victory in which have few believe? Frank coraci once again puts pleasing to the eye and kind of the internal saturation of the tape, which can easily relax and give a lot of positive emotions. A movie like everywhere.

But Tom Herlihy (screenwriter) at support Adam Sandler reverses social behavior of their characters. If "the Singer on wedding" it was concluded in the framework of logical behavior in society, here he puts "pepper". First, it's crazy loving your child a mother (Kathy Bates). Herlihy writes of her overly loving, almost not sick insanity woman, perhaps all of it and there, but Herlihy surrendered to the stereotyping of the character, why in the reality of this behavior as I work, although it is clear that made it was maintain the comedic focus of the waterboy. Then there is the coach (Henry Winkler). Obvious signs of daunizm and acquired weak-willed behavior, perception of the world in children's vision — so show the coach. But it except that he's funny, he got a laugh, but that, you see different things and are not always compatible. And third person — is a marginal girl with criminal tendencies (Fairuz of Belk). Another stereotyping under style pankowska youth, which only cost a shot when it holds a placard with an inscription "I Want to kill them?". As character Comedy it may a previous, but here in the romance is invested with it a lot.

And Adam Sandler good, all in while he was good. It quickly found their way a good loser and easily find new traits for their new characters. Here is the replay, quite noticeable, when its thirty years of age, he can't get out from under mom's skirt, he lisps, and, as actor, strongly puts it on the show, yeah and work as a water-pot and obsession with clean water — this game the fine line between immaturity, at that human rights defenders could lasercat, and again stereotyping of "maminka sons." But the role is good, very good, Adam Sandler gives with all the love and kindness to the audience and even trying to help people believe in themselves to everyone, he funny and touching.

And not only Sandler has played his role, but and the above characters were successfully played by actors, especially I personally liked the impressive of Fairuz Balk.

waterboy can be attributed to simple movies with Adam Sandler, but this film looks easy, comfortable and convenient to still, despite a decent age, even young people who are not tame comedies like American pie scary movie, may relax in front of the screen and sincerely to laugh.

Learned about this film by chance: decided to watch the movie "Mama's boy" in 2007, where played by Anna Faris, and decided that is a remake of this film in 1998. It turned out that these two of the movie is not have each other nothing, and even the original language have different names. The film's title, about which speech will go, literally translates as "Boy with water", but in the Russian hire him came up with a more attractive name. Both the names belong to the main character of this film — original title talks about his "profession", and Russian — about his life "status." Playing this hero is known to all Adam Sandler. In the moment I familiar only with two comedies with participation of the actor. Both those of Comedy are automatically added Adam Sandler to the list of my favorite comedians.

The main character of this film in 30 years obeyed mother. That keeps it under strict control and prohibit everything. Adult boy afraid to do the / to go / to communicate with the etc and p — in General, to join the fact that his mom calls the devil. Why not scary. Especially when you consider that boy perfectly healthy — it is, in simple terms, brake and stutter. Where a boy works? It carries water to the players, who mercilessly mock him. And to play football? What you! Mom is not allow! Football — it's the devil. Well all new friends son, too. Is our hero will always sit and shiver under her mother's skirt? But his new friends do not allow — after all, the pitcher was quite good in case, where he always been only a "utility" worker!

This film can be called a fairytale about how loser "stands out from the mud in princes". I think these events are not quite realistic, but I liked the film primarily as a Comedy... well, and as a fairy tale, too. Personally, I was nice to look at this personality shown so comical — and even so incredible. When the main character is pathetic, and his mother — outrage, I'd like to see how such a terrible loser, will finally get lucky and it will find its place in life.

Quality and spectacular scene of the game in football, an interesting plot and plenty of funny jokes. What else you need for a good Comedy?

PS Of the two viewed me comedies with Sandler I much more like this.

P. P. S. "Mama's boy" with Anna Faris I decided to watch. Say, boring.

The movie "the waterboy" refers to a list, looked and forgot I Reviewed it's only because it starred Adam Sandler. To the actor no complaints, he played someone he said. In a nutshell it hero too stupid and not real, there's a lot of guys who live up to 40 years with her mom all the time indicates that you that impossible. But here we see a retarded jerk who works in a variety of situations.

Kathy Bates played the crazy mom that just annoyed by their actions. He film, Bobby, whose mother my love and constant surveillance, did a complete loser. Bobby works as a water-carrier, free of charge, it again proves who the jerk was created by the writers. And here Bobby wakes up in anger, through which it falls into the main part of the football team, where it before each match result in the anger that he has broken the defense of the opposing team. On my opinion, complete nonsense. The movie one time, and looked forgot do I think it will look at two types of people. The first type is the people who accidentally stumbled on this film, and the second type to which I consider yourself, so it's the people who love the work of Adam Sandler, and see all movies his participation.
