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.
A goofball comedy of the highest order, Tamra Davis's "Billy Madison" will never be mistaken for anything sophisticated; it is, however, a whole lot of silly fun. Following Adm Sandler's titular protagonist as he returns to all grades of school, the film is an energetic blend of low level comedy, heart, and an odd musical number or two. It may not be exceedingly smart, but it is plentifully amusing.
The plot of Davis's film revolves around rich man-child, Billy, having to return to elementary and high school in order to inherit his father's business. There, he makes friends, enemies, and romantic connections. The production focuses on Sandler's hijinks as the title character, and Davis's camera puts a premium on his…
"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.
It is juvenile and ridiculous, but I love 'Billy Madison'. Off the wall, bizarre, fun, and flat out funny. So many quotable lines that make me laugh but probably should not.

I'll have nightmares with that penguin.
More annoying than funny. I won't deny a few good moments, but they were few and far between. Still better than anything Sandler's released in the last ten years, though.

"Well maybe if you told me you had delicious Triscuit crackers I could have enjoyed them with you."
I don't know why, but I really enjoy this movie. In fact, I really enjoy most of Adam Sandler's early and mid-career films. His mid-career is solidly funny and slightly more mature, while most of the early movies are extremely immature. Billy Madison fits into the latter category. It's a ridiculous movie. The concept is extremely unbelievable and many of the jokes and scenarios are cringe-worthy. However, for each dumb joke, there are several that hit their mark. Many of the scenarios are hysterical and endlessly quotable. It's actually a little disturbing how frequently I can quote this movie in everyday life.…
Steve Buscemi saves the day lol.
Preciosa historia sobre tirarte a tu profesora de primaria. Me he reído mucho y de forma muy sincera con esta aparente mongolada (en realidad hay capas de reflexión, de mongolada poco). "Si mearse encima es ser guay, yo soy como Miles Davis" ¿cómo no voy a querer a esta peli?
Viva Adam Sandler, carajo.
This is one of those things where everything just comes together so well that it defies the definition of good or bad
