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

Okay first off, I cant stand Adam Sandler, he's an annoying Actor. But to give him credit he has done good movies and bad movies. Good movies such as Happy Gilmore, Click, The Wedding Singer, I now Pronounce you Chuck and Larry etc. Because he can do serious roles and also have the comedy. But this film...makes me feel so dumb while watching it and at the end I felt like i had to go back to school to be taught what GOOD films to watch. The jokes are terrible, some scenes are completely pointless. But there have been times when Sandler makes so much noise I really want to punch him in his face. I give this film 2 stars because it's bad but not the worst.
