Synopsis


Caddyshack
The smash success Caddyshack became a prototype for countless other wacky T&A-tinged teen comedies of the early 1980s. At an exclusive country club for WASPish snobs, an ambitious young caddy (Michael O'Keefe) from an overpopulated home eagerly pursues a caddy scholarship in hopes of attending college and, in turn, avoiding a job at the lumber yard. In order to succeed, he must first win the favor of the elitist Judge Smails (Ted Knight), then the caddy golf tournament which the good judge sponsors. Of course, there are love interests as well -- one good, one naughty -- not to mention several foes he must vanquish along the way. The story itself serves to string along a series of slapstick scenes involving an obnoxious nouveau riche land developer (Rodney Dangerfield) who wants to turn the site into a condominium community; an oddball, Zen-quoting, millionaire slacker/golf ace (Chevy Chase); and a psychotic groundskeeper (Bill Murray) with a gopher-fixation. Caddyshack was a bona fide hit; throughout the '80s and '90s, director Harold Ramis would continue to create such hits as Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day, and Analyze This. ~ Jeremy Beday, Rovi

    The Snobs Against the Slobs--Again!

    The 30th anniversary re-release of Harold Ramis' 1980 comedy classic CADDYSHACK is not very celebratory, which is why I could not give this product a five-star review. In fact, nothing on the DVD packaging itself indicates that Warner Home Video was trying to promote this release as an anniversary edition--that idea was conveyed by the Best Buy packaging. The only important bonus feature is a nice documentary/retrospective on the making of the film, but it is pretty old--from 1999, in fact--and I suspect has already appeared on earlier versions of the DVD. But on the other hand, my Best Buy was selling the disc for just five bucks, and I had a $5 birthday reward certificate, so it cost me nothing (technically I had to buy a soft drink to bring my total purchase price over the $5 minimum, but I was thirsty anyway). The movie itself is one of the great comedies of the 80s, perhaps my least favorite decade in cinema history except for the classic laff fests of my youth. Originally intended to be a much darker comedy that focused more on Danny (Michael O'Keefe) and his fellow caddies, CADDYSHACK wound up emphasizing comedy legends Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Ted Knight, and the immortal Rodney Dangerfield--and thank God (or Harold Ramis) for that turn of events, for it is the grownups who earn the movie its hilarious reputation. One of the most quotable films of all time, CADDYSHACK is slapstick, grossout comedy of the finest kind; if that sounds like something that will tickle your funny bone, don't miss it!

    Bill Murray At His Best

    In a lot of ways, this movie made Bill Murray a star. He was already well known from Saturday Night Live, but Caddyshack elevated his career to a new level. It has a ridiculous plot as the entire movie revolves around a country club golf course, but Murray adds the degenerative aspect which is in stark contrast to the rest of the cast. It needs to be seen to be fully appreciated and I suspect most readers of this review have already seen it more than a few times. Still it is a classic from its era.

    From the Ommna's of Chevy Chase to the Hubba's of Rodney Dangerfield. This movie has it all. Bill Murray as the Grounds Keeper who goes from creepy to full Apocalypse Now through the movie. Throw in a love story, a wonderful moral story about class-ism, a Gopher puppet for good luck. This movie has it all and if you are not falling out of your seat with laughter after an hour then you may need to check your pulse.

    Never watched this movie when I was younger. My husband got it in a bargain bin and we sat and watched it one night. So stupid and pointless. Wasted 2 hrs. Cannot believe it is a cult classic. Movies have come a long way since then. As I kept saying to my husband "I could've written/produced something better than this and I'm not even talented in that area."

    Solid Product For the Price

    If you're looking at this, I won't go into the plot, as I'm sure you're a long time fan of the movie anyway. If you haven't seen it, google a review of it, I'm sure there's thousands of opinions to choose from. Overall a very good transfer to HD format. Not perfect, but that may have more to do with the source material. Got in the value bin at my local BB, and very satisfied with it for the price.

    Hey kiddies, find out what comedy actually looks and sounds like. Check out Caddyshack, a film about the haves and have nots that has just as much intelligent humor as it does potty humor. Some nice, naked women and some of the funniest actors ever put together for one movie. This is one of the rare ones that has earned the title "classic".

    Caddyshack is a classic movie that pack a lot of laughs that needs more extras. The restoration on the Blu-Ray shows how much care was presented but its short on bonus features. For dire hard fans, they get a short retrospective and A&E's Behind the Scenes documentary with the film's trailer. Shame they couldn't dig up anymore cut footage or any other things but what we got will do fine.

    Caddyshack will forever be one of my favorite comedies. It never gets old, i think i could literally watch it everyday and still laugh just as hard. Bill Murray and Rodney Dangerfield bring the laughs nonstop and bring hilarious ad-libbed lines. Specifically Murray, I think he gives the best performance of his career in this one. Couldn't recommend this movie more, go see it!
