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
26 November 2020 | by jamiemoviessSee all my reviews

I have watched Caddyshack at least 10 times over the years and absolutely believe it's one of the craziest movies ever. The characters make you feel for them or against them. I realize it is for mockery and laughter, but the blondie and the nubile breasts just add to it. Laugh all the way.
