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.

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.
Si bien da lugar a muchas risas, no es de las mejores comedias creadas ni por asomo. El problema principal de la película es que carece de contenido.
Bill Murray y Rodney Dangerfield salvan la cinta con buenas actuaciones e hilarantes personajes.
Now I was gonna confuse the hell out of everyone by doing a movie without neither teens nor sex, but then Cindy Morgan had to throw her tits in my face. C'est la vie. For those who hasn't caught up with my common thread these days, I'm definitely stuck in the 80s. All 80s, any 80s and any origin.
Caddyshack isn't nearly as funny as 'everyone' else seems to think, but I've got enemies enough without digging deeper into it.
I'm pretty sure I've seen it before, but as it's at least 15 years since, I didn't bother checking it off as seen before.
(It would at least take another 34 years for me to dig this one up again. Quite simply just not my cup of tea.)
Watching Caddyshack for a second time, this film got me laughing much more than the first time I saw it. You know who's completely underrated in Caddyshack? Ted Knight. I think I laughed more at him than anyone else. Chevy is strangely emo throughout this entire film, Rodney Dangerfield is borderline offensive, and not always in a charming away and Bill Murray is basically just in a Looney Tunes cartoon. Oh and there's a bunch of kids I totally forgot about. Four stars alone for "double turds."
There must be something wrong with me. I can't watch TV comedies with laugh track, not entirely infatuated with Jennifer Lawrence (Emma Stone's the girl for me), and didn't enjoy Caddyshack. Even though I have heard nothing but praise for this movie, I found myself wondering when I would laugh.
Caddyshack weaves the tales of the Bushwood country club's members and employees. Danny is a caddy (hey, that's part of the title!) who would do anything to get money for college. Judge Smails is a prominent figure at the club and is opposed by Al Czervik a loud-mouthed newcomer. Finally, Carl Spackler the assistant groundsman attempts to rid the golf course of a gopher. None inspire much comedy.
Not a movie as much as a mix of horrible improv and stand-up comedy. Rodney Dangerfield, at least, is as grating to the on-screen characters as he is to the audience. The gags here aren't even clever enough to be called sophomoric. They're just noise, like when Dangerfield reveals his heavy golf bag contains a radio and they all dance to Journey's "Any Way You Want It." Michael O'Keefe is moderately charming, but he gets the worst throwaway plots including his girlfriend's pregnancy scare. Bill Murray and Chevy Chase don't even register on film.
The best golf movie ever.
Be the ball, Danny.
Is this a movie that I had to watch when it was relatively new or am I just missing something here?
I didn't find Caddyshack particularly funny or engaging and thought it was rather dull and boring. I'm not sure why, I like the majority of the stars here and films like this usually work well with me but for some reason I couldn't get into this at all.
Classic. Hilarious. Quotable. Dangerfield. Murray. Spackler. Golf. A Gopher. 2000/10 film.
