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?Written by
In the opening long shot of Danny and Ty Webb walking down the hill towards the camera, Ty absentmindedly calls his caddie 'Betty.' Six years later, Chevy Chase appeared in Paul Simon: You Can Call Me Al (1986) and sings the refrain line "I can call you Betty." See more »
[Ty has just been asked by Al to partner up against Judge Smails in a $20,000-per-person golf match]
Can I have a word with you? ln private?
Sure thing, Judge.
Listen, your father and I prepped together, went to war together, played golf together. We built this club, he and I. And let's face it, some people simply do not *belong*. Let's not... cave in too easy. What do you say, Ty?
[Smails and Ty start to laugh]
Let's make it $40,000.
[to a glaring Smails]
You know, Judge, my dad... never ...

Movie version: Ty Webb to Danny: "Do you take drugs, Danny?" Danny: "Every day" Ty: "Good. So, what's the problem?" TV Version: Ty Webb to Danny: "Do you take drugs, Danny?" Danny: "No" Ty: Good. So, what's the problem?" See more »
This is actually one of the funniest comedies I have ever watched,seemingly with no arty ambitions(which is quite a relief at times,especially when you feel low)at all and with plenty of "low" humor,presented with warmth and heart.
The cast makes this movie(the script could have been a disaster in the wrong hands and with the wrong actors)a true pleasure to watch.
We get to know a young caddy named Danny with high ambitions to raise money for college one way or the other,but the true highlight is Bill Murray's somewhat dopey/crazy green keeper who spends most of his time trying to eradicate chipmunks from the golf course,with the persistence of a madman. Very early eighties in all aspects,but in a positive way. Well worth your time,especially on a gloomy day.
