Happy Gilmore (1996) Poster

(1996)

Alternate Versions

In the TV version Happy talks to the orderly (Ben Stiller) and tells him that grandma has told him everything. He then throws Stiller out the window. When Stiller hits the ground he says "Noy is that guy strong". then the old people come out and beat him with their hands, purses, canes, and etc.
The version aired on Fox has all featured product placements removed. For example, "Sports Illustrated" becomes "the pros", "free Subway for life" becomes "Free sandwiches for life", and Happy's T-shirt has the Subway logo digitally removed.
In the NBC TV version, there are several changes. When Happy first sees Shooter before he plays golf the first time on the pro course, instead of saying "If I saw myself in those clothes I'd have to kick my own ass" he says "...my own butt." In the bar scene Happy says to Shooter about bieng on the Tour "...Now I got a new reason: kicking your head" instead of "...your ass." When Happy and Bob Barker fight, when Happy says "The price is wrong, bitch" the "bitch" is removed, among many other small changes in the film.
On the Fox version, many examples of product placement are cut out: Sports Illustrated becomes "the pros", all references to Subway are cut, "a Pepsi" becomes "some breakfast", and most of the final shot(where Happy shoots his ball through the stands) is cut due to a Subway flag.
Television versions:
  • When the tour managers are discussing whether to keep Happy on the tour he can be heard cursing on the TV in the background. On the TV version he clearly punctuates the discussion with "Piece of monkey sh*t!". Whereas on the video versions there are muffled, unspecified swear words.
  • Happy tells Chubbs that golf requires "goofy pants and a fat ass". On television airings, "ass" is poorly overdubbed with "can".
To achieve a 12 certificate in the U.K. cuts of 55 secs were applied to remove sounds of Happy swearing on the TV news during the office argument scene.
