Comical goings on at an exclusive golf club. All the members are wealthy and eccentric, and all the staff are poor and slightly less eccentric. The main character is 'Danny'; he's a caddy who will do almost anything to raise money to go to college. There are many subplots, including the assistant green keeper's pursuit of a cute (obviously stuffed) gopher.Written by
According to Cindy Morgan in a 2013 interview with The Neon Rewind, after threatening her into doing the topless sex scene during filming, producer Jon Peters brazenly asked Morgan to do a nude photoshoot for extra publicity during the movie's press tour. This time Morgan refused flat out and even went as far as to fire her agent, who took Peters' side, allegedly. She then spent a whole year frustrated and unemployed from the experience, as well as worried about typecasting. See more »
When Spalding is sneaking drinks during the dinner scene, you can see the guitar player in the background (on stage) is not in sync with the soft music the orchestra is playing. See more »
Dangerfield is hilarious as usual and Ted Knight is also superbly funny. I think Ted Knight and Rodney Dangerfield steal the show which isn't easy in a movie with Bill Murray and Chevy Chase. After watching this movie several times, however, it is Ted Knight who still gets the most laughs. His arrogant, upper-crust Judge Smails is a classic comedy performance and the perfect antagonist for Rodney Dangerfield. Bill Murray is a goofball groundskeeper who is also over-the-top stupid in his battle against a gopher. Chevy Chase is actually sort of a straight guy as the golf pro in this move and it works well for him. I have seen many attempts to copy this movie over the years but rarely has there been anything that came close. 8/10
