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
What can you say about this movie? One of the funniest pictures ever made! If you enjoy this kind of raunchy, Rodney Dangerfield humor, then this movie is a must watch! I honestly think this is one of his best movies! I may have watched this movie hundreds of times, but each time it’s just as funny to me! Definitely 5 stars! I would give it way more stars if I could!
still very funny, but now sharper and clearer as w

Fantastic movie, awesome cast, timeless comedy. This is one of those movies you can watch over and over . . . and now that it's on blu-ray you can enjoy it with even clearer visuals as well as better sound,
