Show Notes

This move sucks so hard!!

"Going Overboard" is a 1989 comedy film that marked Adam Sandler's first starring role. The story revolves around Schecky Moskowitz, played by Sandler, a struggling comedian who takes a job as a waiter on a cruise ship. Dreaming of making it big in the comedy world, Schecky faces numerous challenges as he tries to showcase his talent amid a chaotic mix of eccentric passengers and crew members. The film is known for its slapstick humor, outrageous characters, and Sandler's early comedic style. While "Going Overboard" wasn't a critical or commercial success (no shit), it provides a glimpse into the early career of one of Hollywood's most successful comedians and serves as a testament to the evolution of his comedic talents over the years. In a podcast discussion, one might explore the film's reception, its place in Sandler's career trajectory, and the elements that contributed to its unique charm despite its initial shortcomings....you know, Billy Zane and Billy Bob Thorton was in this POS lmao!
