The Wedding Singer team are back with this little flick where Adam Sadler plays Bobby Boucher - a chap with a stupid voice and an over protective mother ( Kathy Bates ). Bobby’s sole interest in life is to provide the local football team with high quality refreshing water. Bobby is the main target of a large amount of ‘abuse’ from the football team and coach and he soon gets sacked. He soon gets taken on as waterboy by another team through his enthusiasm for the high quality water. He goes back to college where his ability to flatten people several times his own size is noticed when a lecturer is fairly rude to him and he charges! Coach Klein (Winkler) visits his mother to ask permission for him to join the team. She serves up Snake for dinner and makes it clear that Bobby isn’t joining any football team. He soon gets taken on as a player to the football team without his mothers knowledge.

With Bobbys help the teams fortunes recover and they find themselves in the finals of some tournament. Fairuza Balk plays Bobbys Girl friend, Vicky Vallencourt who is not exactly approved of by Bobbys mother for most of the film, but at the end of the film Bobby and Vicky get married and his father briefly turns up. If you haven’t seen this film, then why not come and check it out now?
