Synopsis


Billy Madison
Master of infantilism Adam Sandler stars as the title character, an overgrown rich kid who wiles away his days poolside, swilling kegs of beer and appreciating fine nudie magazines such as "Drunk Chicks" -- that is, until his father (Darren McGavin) decides to test his mettle as future head of the family business by posing a challenge: retake and pass grades K-12 in 24 weeks or watch control of the business pass to the requisite conniving underling (Bradley Whitford). Forced into action, Billy vows to change his drunken ways. He enrolls in kindergarten, makes new friends, pelts pint-sized kids with playground balls and develops a love interest in a pretty teacher (Bridgitte Wilson). The action culminates in an academic showdown between Billy and the purportedly Harvard-educated underling for the future of the family enterprise -- no small feat for a man fresh out of the first grade. There's gross, moronic, off-color low humor galore in Billy Madison, particularly in one subplot involving a romantically forward elementary school principal (Josh Mostel, son of theater great Zero Mostel) and his secret former life as a professional wrestler; another scene includes the hypertense school bus driver (Chris Farley, in a typical over-the-top cameo) lying in the meadow with a hallucinatory penguin. As one might suspect, Billy Madison is not for every taste; Sandler fans will laugh from start to finish; others beware. ~ Jeremy Beday, Rovi

    that he's the heir to the Madison Hotel millions but in order to win his father's respect, and his fortune 500 company, grown-up goof-off Billy must repeat all 12 grades of school in just 24 weeks! Comedy superstar Adam Sandler stars in this laugh-a-minute hit. Now available in this new special edition with never-before-seen bonus features. What I dislike about the movie is that I wanted to see more of it. I would recommend this movie to other people.

    This is funny for nostalgia purposes. I would not recommend this to anyone that didn't grow up with it since it's a VERY 90's comedy. A couple things seem like SNL skits that they didn't have the budget for on the show so they put them into a movie with a threadbare plot. However, I still like it since I've been watching it since I was a kid.

    In his first major theatrical debut, Adam Sandler is at his wisecracking best as an idiotic and childish adult who decides he wants to go back to grade school to prove to his rich father he has what it takes to run the family company. This special edition is pretty good with a decent commentary and several sought after deleted scenes.

    This movie was pretty funny in a raunchy way. (In other words, I don't think my 85 year old mother would have enjoyed it). But it had a pretty good story and quite a few laugh out loud moments for all that. I'm glad I bought this movie because I'll watch it again.

    Adam Sandler is kind of mixed bag. He made some really great movies in the early part of his career before he had his issues. Although I really enjoy his Hotel Transylvania movies. Billy Madison is him at his best. You want to hate him but he is really funny in this one.

    This is Adam Sandler at his best, in my opinion. One of his earliest movies and one of his very best! If you enjoy stupid humor and liked Waterboy, this movie is for you!
