Because we all need laughter (and cute boys) in our lives. 😉
Note: Although Waterboys came out in 2001 (wowie, a decade ago?!), I guess there are still people who haven’t seen it or only watched it recently, like myself. So, for those who haven’t seen Waterboys, I would suggest that you not read this post yet because it might spoil the scenes for you and you’d likely not find it as humorous as I did if/when you do watch the movie.
Without further ado, I hereby present… *drum roll*
The Top 10 ROFL-astic Scenes in Waterboys (in chronological order)
1. You use a net to catch fish? Pssh, that’s old-school. Me? I use my shirt.
hahahhahaa *chokes on chlorine water*
2. Yeah, that’s totally (not) what I want to be when I grow up…
3. My afro! MY AFRO!
^ The burn mark is a perfect circle? Wth?!
4. We learn something new about our friends everyday…
5. Sato is here! Woo hoo!
The most unenthusiastic member of the team, at first…
^ Synchronize swimming?! I’m super excited. Can’t you tell by the expression on my face?
But not for long…
^ An utterly precious bonding moment among the five friends
6. Dance, baby. Dance!
^ Even the dolphin trainer can’t help but bust out some of his own dance moves. Such is the power of Dance Dance Revolution!
7. Great job! Now, here’s a fish for ya.
^ “Oops, wrong species.” ahahahahahah
8. Mouth to mouth resuscitation… on dolphins?
The boys wanted to learn a routine from the dolphins but didn’t know that in the performance, there was a part where the dolphins play dead. So when that happens, the boys freaked out. Suzuki jumped into the water to save the dolphin but didn’t know how to do that, so one of his friends suggested that he do mouth-to-mouth. But in a panic state, Suzuki forgot where the dolphin’s mouth was and blew air into its blowhole. Which didn’t work so he blew into its beak and then foam started coming out from its blowhole. Which freaked him out even more! Thankfully, Sato was smart enough to realize that the dolphins were pretending and whistled them out of their immobile state.
For me, the hilarity of the scene stems from a combination of randomness and “wth?! This is so silly but so funny!”
9. Secret admirer
Saotome crushing on Sato. “I’ve been watching you…”
^ Young Saotome is played by a girl?! And look at little Sato’s hair! bwuahahahahha
10. Perhaps one of the reasons why eyeglasses were invented?
The performance we’ve all been waiting for…
Although it’s a little unbelievable that the entire team was able to come together and synchronize with each other in what seemed like a short amount of time, their performance was fantastic!
Overall, Waterboys is a delightful, 90 minutes of solid entertainment that, among other things, reminded me of Buki’s immense adorkableness. Domo arigato, Waterboys!
