Water sucks.
Verified purchase
This movie is amusing and my kids enjoyed it. Although we now know that water does actually suck, its nice to root for the little guy in a world of Gatorade.

One Of Adam Sandlers Best Movies.
Verified purchase
This movie is funny, bottom line. Jerry Reed and Henry Winkler are hilarious. When you add Adam Sandler it's perfection. This movie includes several cameos one is of sports commentator Bret Mustberger. A great film from the 90's

A blast from my childhood

I remember a time where you couldn't throw a moderately sized rock without hitting a billboard for an Adam Sandler movie. He was quite literally everywhere. Now I'm not complaining about it, but he had way more misses than he had hits. This was one of his better hits.

Sure, it's campy as all hell, the characters are over the top (Especially Cathy Bates character but damn if she doesn't make it awesome), and they finale was super predictable, but it's entertaining. Honestly, that's what matters in movies. So long as you can watch it and not get bored it's a good movie.

I do have one gripe. Who wrote the trivias for this video? Have they never watched football before? One of the notes is that "at the end, when Bobby's team scores to win the game, they still would have had to go for the 1 or 2-point conversion, so the game's score should have been 31-27 or 32-27." No they wouldn't have. The clock had already run out, meaning that was the very last play of the game, and seeing as they ended 3 points ahead, there was no point to going for more.

I hate when idiots write trivia.
