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
Rodney Dangerfield improvised the dinner scene and the unease reactions from the other actors were real. However, Dangerfield complained no one in the scene really laughed with him. See more »
When Judge Smails asks Danny "Are you my pal?" in his office, he's holding his hands together at his waist. The next shot, over his shoulder, he has his arms crossed at his chest, and a second later when the shot switches back to Danny's POV, they are back to his waist. See more »

Amusing and often times very funny story is set around a golf course with a bunch of untimly characters and gags this one is certainly a classic. It features Chevey Chase as an absant minded golf pro, Bill Murray as a perverse greens keeper, Rodney Dangerfield as a rich wise cracking golf and the cutest dancing goffer you will ever see. All three leads are at the top of their game and couldn't be much more funny. There really isn't much of a story here it is pretty much just the viewer follwing around all the different characters and watching their wacky actions unfold. This movie is contains many laugh out loud situations due to our three great leads and even though some of the jokes may miss the target once in a while the film makers keep them coming at a steady pace so that the viewer never gets bored. This is the way comedy should be made these days with movies today featuring sex with pies, loads of fart jokes and stupid caracters that we don't really care about this movie, although over 20 years old is a breath of fresh air.
