Billy is going back to school... Way back.
Billy Madison is the 27 year-old son of Bryan Madison, a very rich man who has made his living in the hotel industry. Billy stands to inherit his father's empire but only if he can make it through all 12 grades, 2 weeks per grade, to prove that he has what it takes to run the family business.
"If peeing your pants is cool, consider me Miles Davis."
Childish and immature - but then again, what Sandler comedy isn't? I've seen better by him, like Click and Happy Gilmore, but I've also seen a lot worse, like Grown Ups and Jack and Jill. As long as you can cope with its stupidity, it's pretty fun and enjoyable. Nothing that will make it into my film collection, but not a bad way to spend the evening. Worth seeing just for the hilarious cameo by Steve Buscemi.
A masterpiece of idiocy.
Oh, back to school, back to school, to prove to dad that I'm not a fool.
I've got my lunch packed up, my shoes tied tight, I hope I don't get in a fight.
Oh, back to school, back to...
Well, here goes nothin'.
"Billy Madison" is dumb, formulaic, and, at times, annoying... but I laughed some.
Billy Madison: "T-T-T-Today Junior!".
Billy Madison is about a spoiled rich goof-off is forced to repeat grades 1-12 in order to inherit his father's business.
When people ask me what is my biggest guilty pleasures movies of all time or something like that, I always say the good old Adam Sandler movies like: Waterboy, Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison. I know this isn't the best comedy of the face of the earth, but this movie brings a nostalgic feeling inside of me every time I watch the film. The jokes in the movie where pretty funny and Adam Sandler movies back in the late 90's really made me laugh and not feel bad about myself, but now his bringing out crap after crap.
tbh i love adam sandler and all his movies are pure gold
Wanted a palate cleanser after Friday the 13th and my daughter picked out this go to comedy for the both of us.
Unfunny and annoying.
This is just a fun and hilarious movie that you know you quote on a daily basis. I swear at least once a day one of the quotes from this movie comes out of my mouth, it was one I was raised on and probably explains a lot of my humor.
I expected, after all this time and awful Adam Sandler, that I would see the kernels of what was to come and not the fascinating incredible comedy I saw then. But it was not to be. There's no sign of how far off it would go. It is one of the greatest. It belongs in the discussion with The Jerk and Caddyshack and Blazing Saddles. It's clearly informed a generation of terrible things, not just from Adam Sandler, but I'm sure those other things did too.
Despite a few funny moments, this is an incredibly obnoxious film that's so utterly generic and predictable. It is honestly a chore too sit through.
Amusing in an immature, Adam Sandler way, Billy Madison finishes a lot better than it starts.
I think that people are blinded by nostalgia—either that or I am just a horribly dull and uninteresting person, but this honestly seems only marginally better than any other terrible Adam Sandler film.
