Storyline

There's something fishy going on at the elitist Bushwood Country Club, and the scheming president of the clubhouse, Judge Elihu Smails, has something to do with it. But, the suave golf guru, Ty Webb, and the distasteful, filthy rich construction magnate, Al Czervik, are onto him. In the meantime, the young caddie, Danny Noonan, struggles to get his life back on track, and the only way to do it is by winning the demanding Caddie Day golf tournament; a prestigious competition that can earn him a scholarship from the judge himself. Now, war breaks out, and all bets are off. Will Danny ever make his dream come true? Does he know that a subterranean menace is threatening to put in jeopardy everyone's plans?

A Classic
24 January 2021 | by lassua-1973See all my reviews

This one makes fun of the rich and the tacky mercilessly and should be considered a classic. The critter, Bill Murray, lying harlot who wants to blackmail her man, nubile boobies and a genius comic performance from a rich dude who kills it. What else did you need? Did I mention perfectly round boobies?
