In 1995, Adam Sandler played one of his best roles ever as a movie star. This movie, Billy Madison is funny, stupid and a good movie for the whole family to watch.
The movie starts out with Billy Madison (Sandler), the idiot son of a hotel tycoon (Darren McGavin). Billy is a lazy, stupid, fall-down drunk that chases invisible penguins. One night, Billy's father plans to retire and wants to give the company to Billy but one of his father's executives, Eric (Bradley Whitford) convinces him that Billy is too stupid to run a company. So Billy tries to prove to his father he can run the company by: First grade - Twelth grade all over again, complete each grade in two weeks.
So Billy goes back to first grade and starts to have a lot of fun being a kid again. Then he goes on to third grade where his teacher is his dream girl Veronica Vaughn. Now Billy gets farther and farther to completing school and Eric black-mails the school principal, Max, into publicly announcing that Billy only passed because he paid Max $5,000 to pass. So it came down to Billy and Eric in an Academic competition.
See who gets the company. Will Billy go from being a drunk to a hotel president or will Eric run the company? See what happens.
