For every Happy Gilmore or Billy Madison, there's a Little Nicky or I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. About the closest he's ever come to creating something that everyone can agree on is 1998's “The Waterboy.” By melding his crazed character development with the standard sports film formula, Sandler found a way to make most of the mainstream happy. An all round Adam Sandler movie, most seem to enjoy. The Waterboy proves that Adam Sandler can pander to most of the people some of the time. It's a genial little gem of a comedy.
