A Hockey player wannabe finds out that he has the most powerful golf drive in history. He joins the P.G.A. tour to make some money to save grandma's house. The downside is that his hockey player mentality doesn't really go on the P.G.A. tour. Especially with the favorite to win the championship.Written by

At his first tournament Happy "addresses" the ball on hole 1, swings, and misses. This counts as a stroke, but on the leader board on 18 it shows he got a hole-in-one on hole 1. This kind of mistake is made repeatedly throughout the movie. See more »

My name is Happy Gilmore. Ever since I was old enough to skate, I loved hockey. I wasn't really the greatest skater though. But that didn't stop my dad from teaching me the secret of smacking his greatest slap shot.

The version aired on Fox has all featured product placements removed. For example, "Sports Illustrated" becomes "the pros", "free Subway for life" becomes "Free sandwiches for life", and Happy's T-shirt has the Subway logo digitally removed. See more »
Adam Sandler has a very funny movie here that works like no other since Caddyshack. Sandler plays a lazy guy who has to save his grandmother's house from being removed. So, he starts to play golf in a way that only Sandler can. He is also instructed by Carl Weathers (who memorably played Apollo Creed in Rokcy), and wathcing his scenes I had to leave the theater from laughing so much (he had a wooden hand and it always gets knocked off). Sandler knows how to keep people rolling in the ailes, and this proves it. A++
