Henry Roth is a man afraid of commitment up until he meets the beautiful Lucy. They hit it off and Henry think he's finally found the girl of his dreams, until he discovers she has short-term memory loss and forgets him the very next day.
Billy Madison is a 27 year-old man whose father Brian is the head of a major hotel chain. Even though he is groomed to replace his father who is about to retire, Billy is extremely immature and unmotivated in life. When Brian considers making Eric Gordon (whom Billy despises) his new replacement, Billy decides to prove to his father that he is capable of taking over. He must repeat grade school all over again (2 weeks for each grade) in order to take over the hotel empire. The further Billy progresses, the more Eric tries to derail Billy. Written by
I honestly don't know what the reviews are on about. Billy Madison is CINEMA AT ITS WORST!!! Everything in this feature is unbelievably daft and stupid: the acting, the plot, the narrative, the set, the jokes, the editing, the everything. After reading the reviews on this page I thought, maybe I missed something out so I watched it again: what a waste of time. Just as you get to the point when you wonder can things become any more stupid than this, surprise-surprise: they do!!! Toward the conclusion you realise that the whole of society is just as stupid as Billy Madison, as the producers who stashed $25,000,000 on this movie and as the auditorium who paid to see it. Billy's odyssey finishes with a jolly HAPPY ENDING, everybody lived happily and depoliticised ever after and the film got very good reviews.
