Did You Know?

Cindy Morgan did not want to appear topless in the movie. While director Harold Ramis was amenable to changing the scene, producer Jon Peters asked to talk to her while Ramis had her on the phone. When the call ended, Peters informed Ramis that Morgan would do the topless scene - because Peters had told her she would never work again in Hollywood if she didn't. Morgan recounted in July 2010 that this incident contributed to her not working again (voluntarily) for a long time afterward.See more »

I Want You To Kill All The Golphers! (Caddyshack Review), 8 January 2006
Author: ( from United States

What is the point of a movie about teenage caddies running around, chasing women, smoking grass, and causing all sorts of shenanigans? Only to create one of the greatest comedies of this or any time period. If you are looking for a movie that will keep you laughing from start to finish, look no further my friends. Caddyshack captures the youthful spirit of teens and the country club life to perfection.

Every character in this film has something about them that makes them uniquely hilarious. Judge Smails, played by Ted Knight, contributes to the comedy with his gut busting mannerisms and his contagious laugh. Ty Webb, played by Chevy Chase, is a wise cracking man who loves to stick it to the man. Then we have Danny Noonan (Michael O'Keefe) who is the lovable, yet rambunctious, caddy who is just trying to find his way in the world. Quite possibly the funniest character in any sports movie is Carl Spackler (Bill Murray). This character is the glue of the film. His idiotic manner and constant abuse of alcohol makes for a performance that will be remembered for generations. Last but certainly not least is Al Czervik (Rodney Dangerfield). While at times he is very juvenile, his antics fit right in at Bushwood Country Club.

There are three S's that make a successful comedy movie, sex, silliness, and soundtrack. With the very sexy Lacey Underall (Cindy Morgan), all of the characters previously mentioned, and a gopher dancing to "I'm Alright" by Kenny Logins, this film is more than a success, it is a masterpiece.
