Storyline

Jack Hartounian, a self made man is trying to get into Bushwood County Club because his daughter's being asked by her snooty friends. Jack applies but a few things ruins his application, one that he's extremely boorish and because he is building low cost housing in an affluent neighborhood. Jack then turns to Ty Webb who owns the majority share of the club, Jack buys Ty's shares and then takes over the club and makes some changes which the members don't like. That's when the club members attack Jack by stopping his housing project. Eventually they decide to settle it on the golf course but the club president decides to take contingencies.

Trivia

Sam Kinison was originally cast in this film, but backed out when close friend Rodney Dangerfield (who was to reprise his Al Czervik role from the first film) backed out due to creative differences with the script. It is believed that Kinison was to portray the "Peter Blunt" character. The role eventually went to Randy Quaid. See more »

Goofs

When the explosive golf ball is supposed to be blowing up the melon, no golf ball or anything else for that matter is seen hitting the melon before it blows up, it seems to just explode on its own. See more »

Quotes

Peter Blunt: Well, you certainly made it very clear how your legal system works Mr. Young. Now, I'd like to explain a little bit about the Peter Blunt system. You see, I don't go in for lawsuits and motions or any of the legal stuff. No, no, you see what happens is, uh, I find out where you live and then I come to your house, see? And I beat down your door with a fucking baseball bat! And, then I make a bonfire with the Chipendale, maybe roast that Golden Retriever, woof, woof, woof, woof, woof, woof, woof,...

Alternate Versions

Chevy Chase has a line in the commercials which doesn't appear in the movie. After Dan Aykroyd shoots himself with the crossbow, Chevy says "I'm always shooting myself with those poison-tipped crossbow darts. I wonder why they don't put a warning on the package." See more »

10 April 2005 | by purplebikerSee all my reviews

Watch this movie .....only to truly appreciate how good the original is. I'm not real hard to please, but this was one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

It hurt me deeply, because I like Chevy Chase, Jackie Mason, and Dyan Cannon. The writing was just terrible! I thought Chevy would have at least ad libbed some better stuff than he did. There was hardly anything to laugh at in this movie. I went into it wanting to enjoy it. I wanted to laugh but nearly cried.

In the beginning credits it read Special Appearance by Chevy Chase. This worried me from the start. Chevy is actually in more than I thought he would be. It's more than a "special appearance". Too bad the appearance wasn't special. Mason's character would have been a good secondary character but got old as a main. I would rather have seen more (much more)of Dyan Cannon. At least her character was fun, if not well written. I also missed the gratuatis teen sex scene. Mr. Gopher went from being cute and innocent to a pesky rodent that deserved to be blown up. Jonathan Silverman is the only character that interested me and we didn't see enough of him.

I take it back. Try..to watch half of this movie, then...remember the Alamo, the Maine, and CaddyShack I.
