    This is stupid, awful, uninspired fun.

    I've said it several times as an Adam Sandler apologist, but there are worse things than comedic movies about taking care of your family and believing in yourself to overcome the odds and defeat the assholes. It's a simple formula, but it keeps our toes tappin'. And if we were to take a poll, you'd probably have an even split between guys and girls about this or The Wedding Singer as their favorite Sandler joint. Because dues love golf and…

    A rejected hockey player puts his skills to the golf course to save his grandmother's house.

    The Sand-man in his prime as yet another violent sociopath with a heart of gold. I loved this movie as child and I still find it incredibly funny. In no way is this a 'good' film but as a comedy you can't really fault it. Some of the jokes are really juvenile but I still find the majority of the gags are very well done and well written. An extra star given for the Subway product placement.

    A sports comedy that churns out the laughs. BRB, going Subway.

    Ham acting and standard Sandler screwball shitheadery aside, I find it impossible to dislike this film.

    Everything is just so loveable. The characters are sweet if a little over-painted, Happy is as innocuous an anti-hero as it's possible to be, the character dynamics aren't terrible, and the story is satisfying while requiring very little of our higher-brain functions.

    Most of the jokes hit their target, and the comedic air isn't suddenly sucked out at any point, which is often a problem – well, one of them – with Sandler's films.

    It's an easy, enjoyable watch.

    You won't remember the cliche-ridden and sometimes cringe-inducing Happy Gilmore a day later, but the jokes that work go down well, making it one of Adam Sandler's best films.

    Adam Sandler's career has pretty much done a reverse Happy Gilmore.

    A foul-tempered, inept, yet sweet-spirited hockey player is forced to turn pro golfer when his grandmother’s home is auctioned for back taxes. Surprisingly winning, delightfully irreverent cult comedy is impressively savvy below its dumber-than-dumb exterior, deftly mixing slapstick and black comedy. Sandler is at his most endearing here, and though the film isn’t for the Masterpiece Theatre crowd, it’s amusing—and often uproarious—from the first frame to the last.

    Silliness abounds but its both welcome and an appropriate counterpoint given the stuffy nature of professional golf. Frequently funny and surprisingly exciting.

    Irgendwie kann ich bei dem immer wieder gut ablachen. Geht schon mit dem echt witzigen Opening an und hat einfach ein paar gute Gags.
