Failed hockey player-turned-golf whiz Happy Gilmore -- whose unconventional approach and antics on the grass courts the ire of rival Shooter McGavin -- is determined to win a PGA tournament so he can save his granny's house with the prize money. Meanwhile, an attractive tour publicist tries to soften Happy's image.
Happy Gilmore has to be one the dumbest, most nonsensical movies I've ever seen. Yet, there's a good-natured spirit and sense of creativity to this film that most of Adam Sandler's projects haven't had for well over a decade. Plus the cast is funny, the characters are likable and it doesn't overstay its' welcome with a short runtime of 92 minutes. The very definition of an enjoyable, goofball comedy.
The story of a hockey player with anger issues who turns to golf in order to save his grandmother's home, somewhere between 1996 and now, Denis Dugan's "Happy Gilmore" became near-iconic. That does not mean that the film is a great comedy. It simply means that every ballpark and sports stadium from Augusta to Scottsdale shows clips from the film during inning breaks and timeouts. That is a pretty good legacy for an above average piece of work.
A sports comedy that is both juvenile and uplifting, "Happy Gilmore" provides everything fans have come to expect from a film starring Adam Sandler. Power pop, goofy gags, less-than-sophisticated humor, and memorable one-liners combine in a story with direct stakes and a…
There is no movie I quote more, no movie I've watched more, and no movie I love more. In fact, when my three brothers and I shared a room, we watched a Happy Gilmore VHS every night for roughly a year until it was ruined. I can recite nearly every line and when I'm bored, I can close my eyes and I have the option of watching this movie in my head.
I often say Reservoir Dogs is my favorite film, but I'm going to call bullshit on myself and say that it is probably Happy Gilmore.
Happy Gilmore is Adam Sandler's best film. I have watched this film many times(around 5 or so). It is a masterpiece. You cannot compare a movie like this with movies like "The Shawshank Redemption". It succeeds in what it is set out to do, and that is to make you laugh and tell a nice story. It has flaws, and it isn't logical or realistic. But that doesn't mean that you cannot LOVE and ENJOY this movie. It is amazing. Adam Sandler is goofy as always. His performances wasn't anything award worthy, in fact nowhere near that, but it was funny and interesting. Turn off your brain for 1:30 hours and enjoy this if you haven't already.
Adam Sandler has his fans. He has his money and fame and a production-line of movies that make your IQ drop. He has on occasion though made a couple of decent films. "Punch Drunk Love" is without doubt a career high-water mark and along with this golf parody film remains his finest achievement.
Happy Gilmore takes a juvenile approach to ripping the piss out of the world of golf. A silly story about a dreadful ice-hockey player who discovers an ability for golf, this sees Sandler upset the apple-cart with his controversial antics on the pro-golf tour. Attempting to save grandma's house from the IRS, this has Sandler doing it for all the right reasons but single handedly both wrecking…
I know it's a given, but I'm going to say it anyways; I'm a huge hockey fan. By saying this, I knew that I would enjoy this, but just how much would I enjoy it? From the perspective of a hockey fan, this is an extremely clever film. It's about a lousy, but strong hockey player who starts playing golf because he can hit the ball extremely well. It may sound simple and stupid, but it's hilarious.
Also, as a hockey fan, I love me some good old hockey fights. Yep, there was a fair bit of that, and it made this film way more funny. I love the fight between him and Bob Barker XD. And the fact that…
Critics have a pretty grim view of the simple comedy that's "just for laughs" but I figured it was quite entertaining. Robert Ebert states, "Halfway through the movie, I didn't know what I wanted more: laughs, or mustard." bashing the film for "product placement" and "sponsorship," and also trying to put it down to a cheap laugh. All in all though, Happy Gilmore is just that simple laugh that satisfies, and Adam's temperamental role makes it all the better. Some points in the movie had an interesting camera technique, like when Happy smashes a window with a golf ball, tracked by the camera. Also, the dramatic portion introduced a new "cuteness" to the movie.
Happy Gilmore, is actually quite funny. It doesn't boast anything particularly revolutionary, it just has a good collection of gags and enough plot to keep the viewer engaged throughout. It's also the only Adam Sandler film I can stand.
Adam Sandler movies can be very hit and miss. This is not one of them. Hilarious. Carl Weathers needs more work.
It's oh-so stupid, but I have to admit I thought it was at times really funny.
Funny in most parts but now I have a fear of alligators.
Ah those were the days when Adam Sandler was funny and didn't make me want to hurt people.
Barrel of laughs

A lot of people will admit that recent Sandler films are pretty bad but his 90’s films are fun and the one I hear brought up a lot is…
One of the two Adam Sandler films that I really enjoy, the other being The Wedding Singer. It may be pretty low-brow but it actually has a lot of comedic ingenuity, and it consistently made me laugh throughout....even if it was at the blatant Subway sponsorship deal.
Out of all the major studios in Hollywood, Universal is easily up there with one of my favorites. Just so…
I do not recommend a vast majority of these films. In fact, a good 80-90% of these are anywhere from…
