The snobs against the slobs!
At an exclusive country club, an ambitious young caddy, Danny Noonan, eagerly pursues a caddy scholarship in hopes of attending college and, in turn, avoiding a job at the lumber yard. In order to succeed, he must first win the favour of the elitist Judge Smails, and then the caddy golf tournament which Smails sponsors.
I was sitting at work earlier today when I heard the news that Harold Ramis has passed away at the age of 69. I had to stop what I was doing and take a moment to absorb the news. I was obviously saddened by the loss, but that was mixed with a few smiles as I recognized just how much joy the man had brought to my life.
Ramis wrote Animal House, Ghostbusters, and Groundhog Day, three comedy classics that are probably loved more now than they were upon their release. These are the types of films that don't need to be revisited to recall why they are beloved, as all you need to do is say the titles and…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Rodney Dangerfield behaves very disrespectfully towards Ted Knight in this film.
Harold Ramis was a writer, actor, director, and an all-round funny guy who knew how to make people laugh. A comedy legend courtesy of his gift as a writer, he always made funny people look even better with his creativity. This first film as a director may have been a box-office success back in 1980 and cemented Bill Murray's transition from Saturday Night Live to genuine movie star, but unfortunately isn't Ramis's finest work. If I'm honest, he was a better writer than he was director (Groundhog Day aside), but this slapstick comedy does have its moments.

Caddyshack is one of those movies I've seen so many scenes of, I thought I'd seen the film before.
The gopher. Bill Murray chasing the gopher. Ted Knight getting angry. Ted Knight getting angry at Rodney Dangerfield. The Baby Ruth scene.
Today I saw all of these scenes in order for the first time.
Caddyshack is a very funny movie and one that you will need to see a few times to catch all of the subtle lines, which is the reason this film is viewed so often.
Even as I can acknowledge how rough some of the filmmaking is, even if it's an ideological clash between the anti-establishment '70s and the materialistic '80s, even if the pregnancy fake-out subplot never makes an ounce of sense, I will never not love this movie.
Classic 80's comedy with great turns from: Chavy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield and comedy god-Bill Murray.
Essentially an excuse for its cast to have a behind-the-scenes funded party, Caddyshack nonetheless has found itself considered a comedy classic in some quarters. This can only be a testament to human kindness. Although there are laughs to be found here, and some scenes that truly earn the too-readily given label of being 'classic', this is a film that long outstays its welcome and the fires that are started by the experienced members of the cast are extinguished any time the damp squibs that are the younger actors appear on screen. Unfortunately this is often and to the point where I hoped the gopher would turn homicidal and that this would turn out to be the most bizarre 80s slasher ever filmed. Ramis, Murray and Chase have all produced much finer work than this. Buyer beware.
Funny movie with an adorable groundhog (or goffer, whatever you want to call it).
No real point or story to the plot, just Murray, Chase and Dangerfield all doing their one note characters. Definitely do not get all the praise, mildly amusing at some points, at best
Multi-thread movie: you have the young upstart who seeks paternal advice and sexual knowledge, you have the head to head macho battle between the golf club head honcho old money judge Smails and the newly rich real estate builder Czervik. You have the golf course maintenance man an old vet who's worst enemy is the goffer - Harold Ramis the director certainly had a thing for little furry animals. You have lots of great scenes in almost a collage pattern, and there's a motif about class and money that is the message. This is the best golf movie ever made and a comedy that that stands the test of time!
A great comedy with greats like Rodney Dangerfield and Bill Murray. The gofer's feud with a park keeper for the golf course is classic!
Released at the height of the post-ANIMAL HOUSE "slob comedy" craze, CADDYSHACK is pretty close to the funniest and most quotable comedy ever made, but its loose, improvisatory nature and lack of structure cause it to drag when the funniest members of the cast aren't around and free to just riff their way through the movie. Does anyone care about how Danny Noonan's (Michael O'Keefe) going to pay for college or whether he'll be with his peculiarly Irish-accented girlfriend (Sarah Holcomb)? Rodney Dangerfield, Bill Murray, and the gopher are the fan favorites, but the incomparable slow-burn of Ted Knight as Judge Smails, the befuddled obliviousness of Dan Resin as the patient-neglecting Dr. Beeper, and the scowling Brian Doyle-Murray as harried caddy boss Lou are the secret weapons of CADDYSHACK.
I was just looking through the page for this and saw that the last time this was reviewed was in February last year and thought wow that a long time.
As far as the film goes, it was funny sometimes, but it was mostly Rodney Dangerfield being really fucking annoying.
Perhaps a tiny bit overrated in my opinion because they are as been plenty of funnier comedies out there including many made with the stars of this movie.
