In my eyes Dangerfield is the heart of screwball comedy and this is the film for him to let loose and shine. Murray and Chase compel you to watch closely but never really seem to unleash any top tier funny. The whole film just kind of bumps along. In one way it's timeless and in another more realistic way it's very dated.

A basically formless comedy with an unexceptional premise and script that nonetheless does what a good comedy should: it gives a group of extremely talented performers an opportunity to do what they do best in a way that is neither cynical nor mean spirited.

Having heard this films name many times over the years figured I'd watch it while I was checking out some other films with Bill Murray. This just really irritated me, and I had no idea what was going on half the time. The teenage lead character is dreadful, although some of the supporting cast are quite funny. It's not even worth watching this film for Murray; He has little screen time or laughs until towards the end.

I could have watched this for the scene where Bill Murray ruins the flowerbed alone. This is a movie where the sum of the parts is greater than the whole - I enjoyed the individual performances of the notable comedic actors more than how it worked all together, which is not a bad thing because it seems built to deliver gags (I'm not sure they would have had an obviously robotic gopher if that wasn't the case). Some great dialogue, and a nice anarchic, anti-establishment ethic.

With only the most minimal of plots, Caddyshack is more a series of comedy sketches set on a golf course than anything else, so when they don't hit home, it feels pretty bland, but when they do, it's quite entertaining-and with a great set of characters (Chase's mellow Ty, Dangerfield's obnoxious Al, Knight's uppity Smails, Murray's offbeat Carl) it usually is. Smails' tantrums and Carl's strange ramblings (his long scene with Ty is uproarious) are two particular standout aspects here.

This isn't funny at all. Chevy Chase is the only decent comedian in the whole cast, but unfortunately doesn't have any decent material to work with here. Nearly all his lines are crap. Bill Murray is not funny, period. I've yet to see him successfully carry a comedic role in anything. Plus his character is pointless. Dangerfield is lousy, the lead is forgettable, and the rest of the cast is a bore as well. No idea why this movie is so famous.

Kind of boring and lackluster, I thought. I realize this opinion won't make me too popular, but there are plenty of other comedies I prefer. This one just didn't make me laugh...well, at all. It's decent, but I just can't see the riotous humor in it that it's apparently saturated it.

More a series of sketches than a real movie, and perhaps the ultimate example of a film failing to live up to the sum of its parts; some breathlessly hilarious moments (mostly the Knight-Dangerfield feud, though the puppet gopher is also a scream) sit uneasily with the bland, conventional scenes with O'Keefe and nominal 'star' Chase (who both seem to be spirited in from a different, more grounded movie). Generally good natured enough to sustain itself during the sleepy moments.

I don't quite get why this is so highly regarded among 80's comedies. It's OK but also a bit disjointed: Chase gets top billing but he's more like a co-star, O'Keefe is a bit bland as the lead and Dangerfield's shtick feels outdated. Murray is still establishing himself here and his character feels irrelevant. I would probably enjoy this a lot more had I seen it in the 80's like the Fletch and Vacation films, but for some reason this one escaped me and now feels outdated.

I wish this was the sprawling epic of comedy movies it seems like it could have been rather than the slapdash-edited piece of improv riffing it is, but as a piece of very improvised actors-being-funny comedy it far outshines the glut of more recent films which aim for the same thing. A plot which goes a thousand different directions can easily be ignored when you have a film ending with "We're all gonna get laid!"

The best of the best? Certainly not. But Caddyshack does its part to keep you more than entertained for almost all of its run time. Bill Murray steals the show, but the rest of the cast doesn't slouch. Most of the jokes land, and its ending has become near-classic. A good one to show the family for sure.

Simple, nice, and likeable, but it's really hard to see why this film has the cult status and appreciation it does. An awful lot of scenes go on for several minutes without any jokes or plot-relevant events happening.

It's beyond me how anyone can like Dangerfield. I can't stand the guy. Even though this film is considered comedy classic, I didn't enjoy it any more than any random teen comedy. Well, of course Murray as always is a comic genius.

Although I didn't enjoy it as much as many other people (is Bill Murray supposed to be funny in this?) there's one thing that makes this film worth watching: Rodney Dangerfield. Seriously, the man is hilarious. It are some other good characters, but, really, Dangerfield is the scene stealer.

Bizarre 80's golf film. Synchronised swimming, O'Keefe has era hair, divine lightning murder, gopher sideshow and Dangerfield's rich white man boat drives straight through the black man's tinned equivalent. Pretty great final line though.

Bill Murray steals the show in this funny comedy. There is a nice mix of actors in this film. Rodney Dangerfield's shtick can get tiring if there is too much of him, but he is used just the right amount in this movie. Chevy Chase also gives a funny performance, one of his best.

40 years from its release and I feel Caddyshack hasn't aged well. In fact, I feel that it was never that funny to begin with. Murray steals every scene he's in. Chase has a John-Cleese-esque presence that's one part charm mixed with another part silly slapstick. Most of the jokes didn't land for me, and the entire film applauding the nouveau-riche feels tired, even by 80's standards.

Aside from Back by Midnight, there is no such thing as a bad Rodney Dangerfield movie. Caddyshack takes an excellent cast and a mediocre premise and delivers a very entertaining movie. However, Caddyshack does suffer in multiple viewings, as you remember the slow and unfunny parts, rather than the outstanding comedic work that peppers the film.

CADDYSHACK is uneven, but even the low points are still reasonably engaging, and the high points are pretty damn hilarious. The struggles of caddy Danny Noonan (Michael O'Keefe) are the ostensible core of the film, and they're good-natured and amusing. But it's the antics among the golf club members that work best, namely the peerless Rodney Dangerfield, here at his best. I still find Bill Murray overrated, but he's not bad here, as the semi-civilized groundskeeper. The final line is a classic.

"Caddyshack" pokes fun at elitism through exaggerated characters with a country club golf course as the backdrop, where the caddies symbolize the everyday person. The film is renowned for its memorable one-liners that have resonated with and defined a generation.

What can you say about Caddyshack. Funny? Check. Bathroom Humor? Check. Nudity? Check. Bill Murray? Check. Explosive ending? Check. Not needed sequel? Check. Caddyshack, though perhaps not as funny today as it once was, remains a quintessential american comedy, and among Bill Murray's funniest moments.
