Storyline

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 Rob Hartill

Trivia

The movie was inspired by writer and co-star Brian Doyle-Murray's memories working as a caddy at a golf club. His brother Bill Murray and director Harold Ramis also worked as caddies when they were teenagers. See more »

Goofs

According to the referee at the beginning of the final match, the format was to be team match play. In match play, the person who scores the lowest on an individual hole, his or her team is awarded the hole. The winner will have won more holes by the time 18 holes has been played, or sooner; i.e. one team being up by four holes with only three holes remaining to be played. On the last shot of the match, in which Ty says to Danny, "It's no big deal. If you miss it, we lose." However, this couldn't have been the case. Since they were playing the final hole, assuming it was the 18th, that means that the match was either all square (tied) or one team had a one hole lead with one hole left to play. If Ty and Danny had been ahead by one hole and Danny had missed the putt, Judge Smails and the Doctor would have won the hole with a birdie and the match would have been tied again, leading to a playoff. So if Danny did wind up missing the putt, they wouldn't have lost right there. If the match were tied going into the 18th hole, we can assume that because Danny was still putting after the Judge presumably made a birdie or a par, that means that Danny and Ty still had a chance to win the match. If there was absolutely no chance of them winning, the match would have ended. So with that made putt on 18, Danny would have either been shooting to match Smails and the Doctor's score, or to win. If the final putt was to match their score would have resulted in a tie and a playoff. If that putt was indeed to win, then Danny and Ty wouldn't have lost if he missed as Ty had said. Finally, if Smails and the Doctor had been up one hole with one to be played, surely the final putt would have put the pressure on Danny. We can assume because of the celebration after the ball finally goes in the hole, that Danny had at the very least won the hole. Even if Danny had made eagle and the Judge a par, it still would have only been a single point to team Ty and Danny. Therefore the match would have gone to a playoff with the match all square. Bottomline, there was no guarantee of a loss if he missed, no guarantee of a victory if he made it, or both. See more »

Ty Webb: Sure thing, Judge.
Judge Smails: Listen, your father and I prepped together, went to war together, played golf together. We built this club, he and I. And let's face it, some people simply do not *belong*. Let's not... cave in too easy. What do you say, Ty?

Flawless comedy
27 December 2003 | by (West Chester, Pa) – See all my reviews

Old enough to be considered a classic. This is how the National Lampoon/SNL movies should work but rarely have. Snapshot of a few days at exclusive country club follows several divergent story lines leading to climatic golf match. Chevy's flaky Ty Webb and Murray's degenerate groundskeeper are unforgettable characters among a bevy of memorable parts. Followed eight years later by a sequel as utterly bad as this is good. 10/10
