Happy Gilmore is to Caddyshack what The Legend of Bagger Vance is to The Greatest Game Ever Played. True story: I haven't seen either of the latter two films and have no plans to, but I couldn't/wouldn't come up with a clever Tin Cup reference. Of all the sports movies Kevin Costner did, that's one of them.

One of the best Adam Sandler comedies out there, to be fair that's not saying much but this is actually pretty decent. It's got some good low-comedy laughs throughout and worth watching if you don't mind turning your brain off for an hour and a half to just laugh.

Probably the best Sandler movie there is, as he improved on the good things from Billy Madison while dropping the bad, it's just that he's ended up recycling this material for every movie from here on out.

Bob Barker's 5-minute cameo got a laugh out of me when I was 17 and forced to watch this as my film class's "reward" for having to "endure" movies like "The Great Santini", "Chinatown" and "Citizen Kane". Teenagers are idiots and Sandler is not funny. These are enternal truths and should not be forgotten.

An interesting film. In my teens I could barely tolerate it, despite being subjected to many repeating viewings alongside my more Sandler-apathetic friends. I guess through enduring this persistent torture I reached my own 'happy place' where the film suddenly made a remarkable amount of sense, and was completely hilarious. I don't know if this is a recommendation but if you can look beyond, y'know, everything, this film is pretty good fun. Comedy waterboarding.

I thought it was hilarious when I was a kid and it still manages to get a lot laughs out of me to this day. I realize how dumb of a movie it is and how predictable the plot is, but it manages to keep me laughing throughout so I don't think about it's setbacks while I'm watching it. At the very least you have to respect the Bob Barker cameo.

I never liked Adam Sandler. Nope, couldn't stand him. Then I saw 50 First Dates - good film. Then I saw The Longest Yard, and I started to give him some respect. So I broke down and saw Happy Gilmore and was pleasantly suprised. This is a good movie and, yes, Adam does his schtick, but it's good. Definatgely worth seeing.

The best Adam Sandler-style Adam Sandler comedy by miles and miles and miles. Some of his "rage" stuff hasn't aged well, but Shooter McGavin is a classic comedy villain and by and large it's likable and has a many solid laughs. Good solid sick/rainy day movie. I loved it when I was a kid.

Subverting the perception of golf as the 'gentlemen's game' is nothing new in comedy, but H.G does an amusing job of thumbing its nose at a sport that is traditionally associated with manners and etiquette, and it's a damn sight better than Caddyshack 2. Most importantly (using that word rather loosely), it cemented Sandler's future star persona as a lovable screw up prone to aggressive outbursts. Sandler has fresh faced appeal, and McDonald is a riot as his cocky rival, Shooter McGavin.

Sandler is a riot here as the ironically-named title character, whose anger management issues and general vulgarity hilariously contrasts with the pristine and classy world of professional golf that he enters into. The plot is fairly basic, but the memorable protagonist, along with an excellent antagonist and a healthy smattering of quirky secondary characters and outrageous humour (see the Bob Barker brawl) transforms the cliche sports underdog story into an instantly classic sports comedy.

Far and away Sandler's best film. There is some silly, some good word play, some physical comedy, some random and bizarre stuff. It has everything and basically every joke lands. Is there a cliche love story? Sure and it takes up about 5 minutes of screen time that doesn't also have other things going on. It's also a believable subplot. That is something that stands out in comedies. Most either take it for granted and assume you buy into it or waste a bunch of time with it. Great comedy.

Happy Gilmore is standard fare as far as comedies are concerned but if you couple the funny jokes with Adam Sandler's great way of delivering comedy early in his career you're left with a really funny movie.

One of the few films in which Adam Sandler is actually funny. While it still has some of Sandler's obnoxious staples such as childish yelling and the formulaic "get the girl" plot, this works better than Sandler's other films because the film boasts a good variety of wacky but entertaining characters that play off of Sandler's slapstick very well. The Bob Barker fight is probably the most memorable and funniest scene in the movie.

Gag construction is workmanlike, and Dugan's directorial touch provides an occasional prod. (Highlight: a fistfight with hoary game-show host Barker in the midst of a Pro-Am tournament.) But the cute-boor act is a quick bore.

I'll give it this much - it made 90 minutes feel like they were skipping by. Granted, I wasn't paying much attention as the film really didn't get me going, but I have been left in more agonising wait-for-the-credits by many means. Ben Stiller was funny, but then again isn't that a poor reasoning to recommend a film? He's generally alright in everything, but he can't save this. Caddyshack, but really really bland, boring, and wilfully, but not charmingly, stupid.
