''Going Overboard'' (also known as ''Babes Ahoy'') is a 1989 NoBudget comedy film starring Creator/AdamSandler in his first ever movie role, even two years before he became popular on ''SaturdayNightLive''. In this movie, Sandler stars as [[UnfortunateNames Shecky Moskowitz]], an IdiotHero who dreams of becoming a stand-up comedian on a UsefulNotes/NewOrleans cruise ship. Unfortunately, he discovers the ship's comedian is actually a notorious JerkAss named Dickie Diamond, who always gets the girls and is so jealous of Shecky. So Shecky struggles to become the ship's top comedian instead of Dickie.
