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.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Rodney Dangerfield behaves very disrespectfully towards Ted Knight in this film.
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…
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.
This film set around a posh Country Club shows the differing lifestyles of its members and focuses on the downtrodden caddies that try…
Cindy Morgan was so hot it's stupid
Luckily Ramis and his co-writers found not one, but TWO useless ways to exploit her body!
The Bill Murray subplot was the best part of this. Rodney Dangerfield was annoying and we were supposed to hate Ted Knight even though the movie never gave us a reason to.
This was mildly enjoyable.
Also this was my THREE HUNDREDTH first time watch of the year. Holy shit.
Viewed on DVD
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.
Like Meatballs, which Hold Ramis co-wrote a year prior, Caddyshack is a disjointed comedy with a lot of aspects that really work, and a lot of aspects that don't. There's multiple subplots happening at one in Caddyshack: you have the feud between country club co-founder Judge Elihu Smalls (Ted Knight) and hot-headed Al Czervik (Rodney Dangerfield), you have Danny Noonan (Michael O'Keefe) working as a caddy and hoping to gather up a scholarship for college, you have the womanizing Ty Webb (Chevy Chase) wrapped up in the golf games, and you have the antics of Carl (Bill Murray) as he attempts to rid the country club of a gopher infestation. The moments where Chase and Murray are the focus are…
Tin Cup is still my favorite golf movie...
Why did I ever put off watching this?
”A flute with no holes, is not a flute. A donut with no hole... is a Danish.”
1. The Baby Ruth in the pool, Al’s “who stepped on a duck?” monologue, Carl’s relentless gopher chase, Noonan’s famous putt; all examples of classic comedic moments that have stayed relevant throughout the years.
2. Although I’ll be honest, this is probably my least favorite Bill Murray role. As much as others might love it, I’ve never been a huge fan of the gopher sequences, and always thought they were the weakest part of Caddyshack. And Bill Murray would be much funnier just acting like a dumb version of himself, non a complete retard with a numb lip.
3. Chevy Chase is…
The greatest at their best. Hey, we're all going to get laid!
You do drugs Danny?
Bill Murray and Chevy Chase. Everything else: take it or leave it.
It's charming as all heck, but not as hilarious as I had hoped.
I get why it's famous, but more quotes than plot
Harold Ramis's directorial debut rambles, feeling more like a series of sketches than a narratively cohesive film. Chevy Chase's playboy character ranks as one of the actor's less compelling turns, while Rodney Dangerfield just Adam Wests the the whole time. Some bits are pleasing physical comedy in their own right: witness the yacht club sequence and Spackler's pursuit of the groundhog.
Fun movie, definitely from a different time. Lots of icons and iconic scenes and dialogue obviously, but fell a little short of the legendary reputation it has.
