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?

CLASSIC
13 June 2004 | by jellyneckrSee all my reviews

CADDYSHACK is one of the Top 5 funniest movies of all time. The show-stealer is obviously Rodney Dangerfield, who also happens to be the coolest old dude ever. His outrageous lines such as "Did somebody step on a duck?" are all knee-slappers. Another standout is Carl Spackler, played perfectly by Bill Murray. Carl is a goofy groundskeeper that is obsessed with killing a mischevious gopher. Some of the funniest parts in this movie are Murray's ad-libs. Unfortunately, the plotline of the caddies is overlooked by the outstanding performances by comedic stars such as Dangerfield, Murray, Chevy Chase, and Ted Knight. While CADDYSHACK is an absolute classic, CADDYSHACK 2 is a bomb and fails to live up to the hilarity of this one.
