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

Crazy Credits

During its network television runs in the 1980's, CBS would always air "Caddyshack" with the traditional "Starry Night" Orion/Warner Bros logo (1981-present), while NBC would air the original (and very rare) "Inverting Rectangles" Orion/Warner Bros logo (1979-81). The original theatrical release contained the "Inverting Rectangles" variant back in 1980 common to other Orion films of that era. Both logo presentations were available in the earliest VHS releases of the film (from 1981 and 1983 respectively); however, premium cable airings and later VHS/DVD/Blu-Ray versions each contain the "Starry Night" variant.

A great all time classic
1 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Caddyshack is one of the great all time classics of it's time. For any golf enthusiast this is a must see. Also, If you just like plain comedy this is a must see. I have seen this movie over 100 times and I still laugh to this day. Bill Murray plays one of the funniest roles that ever hit the big screen. After you see this movie you start repeating sayings that you hear in the movie. The late Ted Knight and Rodney Dangerfield are hilarious. If you are a Chevy Chase fan you must see him in this role. The role of Ty is the one that opened the door for Chase in such movies as Vacation, Fletch, Spies like us, Three Maiga's and Funny Farm. This movie is one that everyone should have in their DVD collection. You can watch it over and over again and laugh out loud every time. This movie rates on par with Animal House. These two classics will go down as two great movies in their era. For all the young people that have not seen this movie I recommend it highly. This movie is one for the ages. If you have not seen this movie go rent or buy it and I guarantees a laugh filled t
