Billy Madison is Adam Sandler's break-out film. The film that gave him the attention he deserved. The story is that of a supposedly idiot 27- year-old who has a rich dad who owns a company. When Billy's father says that he will give the company to Eric, a business associate, Billy dislikes this idea and decides to go back to school and finish 1st grade to 12th grade so he can prove he's not an idiot.
Right from the get-go it's silly. It's just plain stupid, childish humor but it's hilarious. I laughed so many times and it is completely re-watchable. And, out of nowhere, there is a Godfather reference thrown in their as well.
I know I might get bashed for this, but to be honest, it was actually pretty smart. Well most of it anyway. I mean, it's the story of an idiot who has to complete 1st to 12th grade all over again. The storyline is called upon for juvenile humor. But, whatever. It's pretty hilarious. Although if you don't like Sandler you probably won't like this.
