In a 2011 interview with the AV Club, Christopher McDonald claims he originally turned down the role of Shooter several times because he was growing tired of being typecast as an antagonist.He reconsidered playing the role, as he had enjoyed Adam Sandler's previous film Billy Madison (1995) and while he was playing a golf tournament in Seattle while taking a break from filming his previous movie in Vancouver. Realizing that he was playing an antagonist in a comedy, and having been satisfied with the script, he asked for an arrangement to be made so he could meet with Adam Sandler to discuss the movie. Upon their first meeting, McDonald ultimately decided to accept the role and has said it remains one of the best decisions of his career. See more »

My name is Happy Gilmore. Ever since I was old enough to skate, I loved hockey. I wasn't really the greatest skater though. But that didn't stop my dad from teaching me the secret of smacking his greatest slap shot.

This movie is an incredibly hilarious movie, no matter how many times you watch it. It's true that it's profane, violent, and stupid, but in this film, that's what makes it so funny! The timing is just perfect. It's a great movie to watch with friends for the first time, especially for the fact that you will be quoting lines with them randomly for quite a while. I have seen it over 30 times, and I still laugh. This is Adam Sandler at his very best. Great random characters, such as the "Jackass" man, the homeless guy, and very best, Bob Barker! To tell you the truth,"It'll make you laugh until you hyperventilate". There's not only great vocal humor, but the visuals and especially the body language coming from the actors is classic. To me, there is not a better comedy.
