Every film that has ever been nominated for a Razzie Award in any category.
He doesn't play golf... he destroys it.
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…
Gotta love this motherfucking film. Gotta.
I'll be at the Red Lobster, in case you change your mind.
Film 18/30 of Scavenger Hunt #1!

“My girlfriend is dead you know” Best. Pick up line. Ever.
Happy Gilmore is a typical Adam Sandler movie, but with one of the least ridiculous plotlines. He has to play golf to win his grandma’s house back, which makes still more sense than many others of his works do.
It is one of the funnier Adam Sandler comedies, with some hilarious scenes. A typical strategy of the movie are repetitions they will you a scene a couple of times until it becomes amusing. The flaws are not the comical aspects but simply the character and the screenplay. For example, they want…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Honestly, better than I was expecting. The ending was pretty uninspired, the gags were one-note, and the setups were pretty obvious. Happy was only likable in that he wasn't Shooter, everything was surface-level, and the camerawork was nothing to write home about. I disagree with the repeated use of a section of Tuesday's Gone.
I don't care what anyone says about Adam Sandler and his movies, this one never fails to make me laugh and feel good, everything a comedy should do.
Rotten tomatoes' synopsis of the movie as saying something along the lines of, those who are fans of sandlers work will like it, and those who don't, won't. This statement is not totally true, and this is one of Sandlers best films. Not only is it creative, compelling, and have a great cast, but most importantly, it's a funny movie, which is an incredibly important aspect to a comedy. With this said, this movie doesn't have everything right. The villain, while hilarious, is a bit too unreal, plus the jokes are 10% miss, and they reeeeeeeally miss when they do. With this said, I still loved it, and it is at least in my top ten comedies of all time.
Watched 1000 times and will watch it again! Part of my everyday language comes from this movie in quotes. Love it!
thank you, mr. sandler
