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…

This film is hilarious. Stupid? Yes. But hilarious? Indubitably.
Showed this film to my children. They definitely found it entertaining as did I even after all these years. This was the height of Adam Sandler.
Stupid too 😚
Star ratings aren't possible here. Sometimes there's a film that is too its own to be compared to other films.
Happy Gilmore is a movie I will cherish forever. Because it came out when I was 12. And I watched it on repeat for the next 5 years after that.
ugh adam sandler
Amaba esta película, bueno, todavía la sigo amando y por eso las 5 estrellas, es estúpida, divertida, pero sin caer en las ridiculeces exageradas en las que ahora caen las películas actuales de Sandler, siento que a él le pasó lo mismo que a los Simpson.
On the ground surface, "Happy Gilmore" has plenty of good going for it, at least in terms of being an adequate unintelligent Comedy. Ah, but alas my good friends, I can't look at this piece in terms so shallow. As someone who's followed Sandler's work with a tinge of fervent disdain, "Happy Gilmore" is a domino, setting the works of cinematic excrement we know now as "Jack & Jill" or "Pixels" into motion.
What I can say of pre-"Eight Crazy Nights" Sandler is that, even when the films were general atrocities, he didn't seem to be completely miserable throughout them. That stands very true herein, regardless of his annoyance, I'd much rather watch Adam here as the juvenile incidental golfer…
Help me out with this one guys.
"It's Mission Impossible!" is the true peak of cinéma.
