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

    Laughably Stupid Comedy

    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 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!

    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.
