1.0 out of 5 stars Zero stars for this farce May 19, 2004
Adam Sandler has made some relatively funny movies in his time. This one is most assuredly not one of them. I realize that this film was one of his earliest projects - long before he hit his stride & could dictate what films he wished to contribute to. In the case of this movie, that point is exceedingly obvious.
It seems like this DVD tries to be funny by being unfunny. That's kind of like trying to satisfy your appetite by starving yourself. Nothing in this film is funny - period. It almost appears that it is deliberately that way (kind of ironic for a comedy, wouldn't you say?).
The only redeeming quality of this movie is that it does have some fairly attractive women wearing bikinis. If it were not for that, I would give this one negative one stars instead of zero stars.
There are some other Sandler movies that are of fairly high quality. Do not make the mistake of believing this is one of them. In fact, if you happen to see this DVD in your shopping cart, be sure & throw it overboard!

1.0 out of 5 stars what is this??? July 8, 2005
what a waste of time and money. why did i buy this? i don't know, maybe because adam was in it. what i found out was that they must have grabbed him before he even decided to become a star. this looks just like something you would see as a college project with a subject as what not to do to make a successful movie.

adam sandler fans stay away. this will ruin your taste of one of the greatest comics out there.

1.0 out of 5 stars Going Overboard January 7, 2004
Ah, Going Overboard. The movie that would have never been released had Sandler not found success on SNL and Billy Madison. Yes, this movie is THAT bad, it makes Happy Gilmore look like Shakespear in comparison. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of Sandler's movies... just not THIS one.
A few minutes into the movie, Sandler pretty much admits to the audience that this was a "no-budget" flick and they were filming it because they happened to have access to a boat that day. And the movie goes downhill from there, if that's possible. Adam's character Shecky's quest to become the ship comedian is somehow tied with a revenge plot hatched by some third world dictator, and everything is slapped together by many scenes of women in bikinis and the same damn exterior shot of the ship used over and over and over. Despite how bad this movie is, you can definately see the seeds of what would become staples in Adam Sandler movies, such as the completely bizzare side characters and pathetically unhip bad guys. There are a few actual laughs in this movie, which is due from the movie not taking itself seriously, and be sure to look out for cast memeber that would later become regulars in future Sandler movies.
Only hardcore Sandler fans would want this movie, if only just to see how their favorite star started out. Everyone else, stay far far away and get "The Waterboy" or "Mr. Deeds" instead.

1.0 out of 5 stars A definate low point in Adam Sandler's career April 4, 2005
Back in the late 80's Adam Sandler was on a MTV game show called "Remote Control". He played various quirky roles. You would have thought that some of that talent would have made it to this film.

This film is definately the worse movie that Adam has ever been in. Adam's acting leaves a lot to be desired. This film is a comedy with no laughs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ha Ha huh? May 21, 2003
My roomate got this and said it stunk and gave it to me. I thought hey it's got Adam Sandler in it, i like so bad its good movies... I have nothing to do today, I'll give it a chance.
It tries, it doesnt take it self seriously, it isnt supposed to be good, and it just doesnt work. On any level it just was not working. I can not see why this movie has fans besides featuring some actors early work, it does not stand as an independent work.
It does not have any humor in it, bad joke after bad joke. As for T&A (I mean it is also known as babes ahoy) there is no action going on.
It was not funny, it was sad.
I got it for free and I feel cheated.

1.0 out of 5 stars One of the worst movies I have ever seen. August 23, 2004
I like Sandler.

I couldn't even finish watching it. I purchased it, and actually took it out of the DVD player and broke it in half.

The general public should be able to sue the actors and distributors when stuff like this is foisted upon us.

Truly horrible, not funny, taped together. They must have spent fifteen bucks filming this abortion.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Worst Movie I Ever Wasted Time Watching September 15, 2003
By Norm
Fellow Adam Sandler Fans,
I bought this DVD at Walmart for $5.88 thinking "Wow, an Adam Sandler Movie I haven't seen." Last night I watched this 90 minute piece of garbage and came away with the following conclusions:
1) Adam Sandler must have had very little talent before he came to Saturday Night Live if this movie is any indication of Sandler's real talent;
2) Adam Sandler really should pull all copies from distribution of this movie since this movie degrades any and all other works by Adam Sandler;
3) The producers of this movie must have been truly desparate for money to have released this piece of trash.
Now about the movie. It claims to be a movie about a cruise ship waiter (Adam Sandler) wanting to be a stand-up comedian. He is jealous of the mediocre comedian whose audience is a bunch of so-so beauty peagent contestants.
Needless to say that Adam Sandler displays zero talent in this movie. There are none of his Chanukah songs. There are none of singing Italian skits. He doesn't make a single funny joke and when he hits on the not-so-hot chicks in the movie his lines are blah. There are a few fantasy scenes where the women are decent looking (but get yourself a copy Maxim and you will be far better off).
There is only one redeeming scene in this whole worthless movie. The house comedian locks himself in a bathroom (to barf) and pleads with God to open the locked door after having spent what appears many hours locked up in that tiny closet-size room. Upon the door magically openning, the comedian proclaims, "F&*^, I don't believe in God, I'm an athiest."
There was an uneventful cameo appearance of Milton Berle and there are some quality actors and actresses in this movie with all their performances wasted.

but I like all movies that have Adam Sandler in it. So I guess I am a little bias. Watch it, at least once and decide for yourself.
