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

A classic in the genre.
8 February 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Caddyshack has some uniquely funny moments. Carl's (Bill Murray) war with the gopher is hilarious. The gopher is cheaply made, not even close to taking advantage of the special effects available at the time, but, even that seems to add to his charm.

Rodney Dangerfield has one of his best performances in this film. I don't particularly enjoy his brand of humor, but, he fit in perfectly with the rest of the cast.

It is a campy, goofy, sometimes vulgar movie, but that is what was intended. I have fond memories of this movie from when I was younger, and it seems to get better with each viewing.

The sequel was made 8 years later. Unfortunately, it didn't even begin to live up to the standards of the first. Here are my suggestions for other films you may enjoy from this genre and time frame: Stripes, One Crazy Summer, and Animal House.

I highly recommend this movie, as well as the others listed.

Parental caution: Nudity, vulgar humor, and sexual references.
