Synopsis

Double bill of comedies from the late nineties. In 'The Waterboy' (1999), Bobby Boucher (Adam Sandler) is just a mild-mannered country boy whose lifelong dream extends no further than serving water to the football team during breaks in play. The team don't always appreciate Bobby's value and treat him little better than a slave, but things change when coach Klein (Henry Winkler) gives him a chance to play. It emerges that the years of pent up frustration have turned Bobby into a turbo-charged dynamo in defense. He swiftly rises from waterboy to superstar. In 'Holy Man' (1998), the 'Good Buy' home shopping channel is on the brink of financial collapse, leaving senior executive Ricky Hayman (Jeff Goldblum) facing the sack. However, the charismatic yet unpredictable 'G' (Eddie Murphy) arrives to offer the station a lifeline. Despite courting chaos with every on-screen appearance, 'G' causes an upturn in the channel's fortunes that could save Hayman's job.
