Comical goings on at an exclusive golf club. All the members are wealthy and eccentric, and all the staff are poor and slightly less eccentric. The main character is 'Danny'; he's a caddy who will do almost anything to raise money to go to college. There are many subplots, including the assistant green keeper's pursuit of a cute (obviously stuffed) gopher. Written by
Most of the cast and crew lived in a motel located near the actual country club used in the film which made it easy for everyone to show up to work. But many of them were still late due to the Animal House (1978) atmosphere on set and after hours. See more »

I think I saw this movie when I was 6. I didn't get all the jokes then but I still laughed my littel butt off. Now it's even funnier. Bill Murray and Rodney Dangerfield are at their best. And Ted Knight kills me. Some of the best performances from all the actors are in this movie. I like the guy who played Danny Noonan, Michael O'Keefe. I saw him at a restaurant a few years ago and he looks the same but like he's his own uncle. The Baby Ruth scene is priceless. And the gopher still makes me laugh. It's a puppet too. I think if they had all the special effects they have now it would have pronbably looked stupid and not been funny at all but I love it.
