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
Spaulding first acknowledges Danny and his "Sailor" attire when Danny arrives at the Yacht Club and Spaulding is smoking marijuana with his friends. A few scenes later Spauling walks up behind Danny and says,"Ahoy Polloi, what are you from? A scotch add?" acting as if that was the first time he saw him in his "sailor" attire even though he had just seen him moments earlier when he arrived. See more »
When you watch Caddyshack, you think to yourself that this is rather lowbrow. Then you disregard that part of your brain and settle down for some lowbrow fun. Chevy Chase has top billing, and he's very good. He's very calm, very funny, and quick witted. But the ones who nearly steal the show are Ted Knight and Bill Murray. Ted Knight and Rodney Dangerfield play off each other nicely. Knight gets flustered and starts stammering, and you can see every vein on his neck! Dangerfield counters with a crack at Knight's expense and it gets better from there. Bill Murray is great as Carl, the groundskeeper with a vendetta against that gopher. He mumbles things to himself, watches old ladies play golf and develops his own grass that can be smoked after playing golf on it. And always remember Ty Webb's words of wisdom: "A flute with no holes is not a flute, and a donut with no holes is a danish."
