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.

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…

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.
Thanks to the hilarious and committed performances from Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, and especially Bill Murray, "Caddyshack" is an insanely funny comedy classic thats consistently hilarious from start to finish.
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.
Hadn't seen this in years and proud to say it was just as funny as I found it in my teens. Which is nice.
Bill Murray and Chevy Chase give a pair of my favorite comedic performances in this one. The scene toward the end of them interacting is priceless. Canonball!! The pacing of the film is nice and does a pretty slick job of balancing what I realized to be a lot of storylines - none of which are particularly deep - but it was nice to get to the end and see how many characters I knew and had vested interest in. Solid character development for a goofball comedy was one of my biggest takeaways from this viewing. Oh, and laughing.
This was hilarious! I thought a 1980 farce film would be completely dated comedy, but it was not. It seems to me that this is basically just an American version of the Carry On films, but with a few less innuendos, and way more craziness!
I was mainly drawn this film because of Rodney Dangerfield’s character, Al Czervik, a rich man who wants to enjoy life on the golf course, because of his doppelgänger in The Simpsons: Larry Burns.
Also, Bill Murray’s brain-dead character was hilarious, and I thought that his full-blown war with the gophers on the golf course was completely stupid.
This gets an 8.6 because it was very funny, and made no sense whatsoever, but it was just such fun to watch, and was not boring at any point.
God dammit I love Bill Murray. He is one of if not my favorite actor. He steals the show with his character who is trying to kill a gopher. The best moments from this movie were the scenes with Bill Murray in them. There were plenty of solid moments but a vast majority of them were because of Bill. Chevy Chase and Rodney Dangerfield were both pretty funny in this as well. I would say for me the jokes in this movie hit more than missed.
So overall I liked this movie and will honestly probably watch another movie with Bill Murray in it within the next few days. This movie would get an "isgood"
it's not very good, but the snl guys and dangerfield are funny as hell
Full of subtle humor, much more enjoyable than I thought it would be, although it was about 20 minutes too long.
The ridiculous, fake gopher that opens Caddyshack epitomizes the ludicrousness that follows. Whatever story one can find in Harold Ramis's directorial debut, it's just an excuse for him, Chevy Chase, and Bill Murray to string comedic vignettes together, albeit often to success. If need be, turn the sound off when Rodney Dangerfield is onscreen to understand the racial elements of the film: his eccentricity mixing up the joint is too much for the elder, white establishment.
Themes aside, Caddyshack is just too stupid to be good. Lacey (Cindy Morgan) is a cliche, childish story device, i.e. old grouch's granddaughter, that services Chase and Michael O'Keefe instead of the story or characters. The narrative is too sporadic and two-dimensional, like the characters, to consider it a comedy classic. Instead, it's a chance to see particular funny people in their prime, as the rest melts away amidst logic.
"Hey everybody, we're all gonna get laid!"
The one-liners. The fucking one-liners.
Bill Murray and the groundhog have their moments, but this is a shoddy, gag-filled, one-liner-aplenty let-down. I've seen bits and pieces recently -- and the whole thing when I was younger -- so I knew what I was in for. Still, I was surprised to find it so cheap and disconnected: "the Rodney Dangerfield part," "the Chevy Chase part," "the Bill Murray part." Good grief.... This could've been a movie I'd been into, but after awhile, I just got tired of everybody yelling and breaking things. Heartless and teen-ish, this was a huge disapointed.
Bill Murray siempre chistoso, Dangerfield a veces (pero bien) Chase... méh. Sentí que el humor -y la peli- no despegaba sino hasta la parte de las lanchas... o es que me gusta mucho la destrucción.
Porque el softcore? ahhh the eighties...
