Happy Gilmore ★★★

A quotable comedy, which popularized the ‘Happy Gilmore’ hockey/golf swing. Amusing moments such as the alligator and the ball go home scenes, though the punch lines often are offensive by centering around violence. Not many women would date Happy, having witnessed his short fuse and anger management problems, the love interest aspects had warmth, but are not totally realistic. Happy (Adam Sandler) is only mildly likeable because he is juxtapositioned with arrogant big head, Shooter McGavin (Christopher McDonald).
