Happy Gilmore


The Caddyshack golf movies were popular in the 1980s, and then we got this ā€“ but in all honesty, itā€™s not an improvement. God knows Adam Sandler is no Bill Murray, but he did get some attention as the vicious hockey player who canā€™t skate to save his life but discovers that rage can be used to great effect ā€“ in golf. The script tries to pump some juice into the very quiet sport but results are pretty silly, including the predictable final showdown. Sandler picking a fight with The Price is Right host Bob Barker is however one of few bright ideas here.

1996-U.S. 92 min. Color. Directed byĀ Dennis Dugan. Cast: Adam Sandler (Happy Gilmore), Christopher McDonald (Shooter McGavin), Carl Weathers (Chubbs Peterson), Julie Bowen, Alan Covert, Bob Barkerā€¦ Kevin Nealon, Richard Kiel. Cameo: Ben Stiller.
