THE WATERBOY

ADAM SANDLER (Bobby Boucher/Written by/Executive Producer) has made the transition from "Saturday Night Live" to the big screen auspiciously with a rapid-fire succession of such hit films as the box-office smash "The Wedding Singer," "Billy Madison," and "Happy Gilmore."

"The Wedding Singer," for which Adam Sandler received the ShowEast Star of the Year Award, was the first box-office hit of 1998, with an opening weekend gross of more than $22 million.

With a budget of just $12 million, "Happy Gilmore" was one of the most successful movies of 1996, grossing over $40 million at the box office and $35 million on video. At the 10th Annual Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards, "Happy Gilmore" was nominated for Best Picture.

Sandler's "Billy Madison" is a cult classic at colleges across the country, where students have "Billy" nights and Sandler festivals.

During breaks from his busy filming schedule, Sandler has played to sold-out crowds at most colleges in the U.S. and has made two Grammy-nominated comedy albums for Warner Brothers that, collectively, have sold over 3 million copies to date. He also did a small comedy/rock tour in conjunction with the release of his third album, "What's Your Name?" He is currently writing and recording his fourth album.

If you dig a little deeper, you'll find Sandler has had a unique career. "Billy Madison," "Happy Gilmore," and "The Waterboy" are all based on Sandler's original ideas, and he shares screenwriting credits on all three with "Saturday Night Live" head writer Tim Herlihy. For Sandler's next project, he will be shooting "Big Daddy" in New York this fall.

But that's only part of the story. What is most striking about Sandler is that he works with a talented group of friends. The writer, director, and producer of "The Waterboy" were his roommates at New York University. According to Sandler, this creates a comfortable environment, because "I like working with people I've seen in just a towel."
