A Hockey player wannabe finds out that he has the most powerful golf drive in history. He joins the P.G.A. tour to make some money to save grandma's house. The downside is that his hocky player mentality doesn't really go on the P.G.A. tour. Especially with the favorite to win the championship. Written by

During scenes involving Richard Kiel, he had to stand still or lean on items. In one scene it's a fence, in another it's another actor. This was due to a severe automobile accident he had in 1992 where he suffered head trauma, losing his ability to balance without aid. See more »
During the opening scene for the tour championship. The Volkswagen bug can be seen against the tower. That scene is not until the end of the movie. 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 is Sandler's best movie to date. I could watch this movie 50 times and still laugh. It doesn't get any better than this, except for Tommy Boy! Sandler can only go downhill from here, Waterboy was dumb compared to this. Goddamn I hate that Bob Barker, Classic!!!
