The greenskeeper is about to start World War III--against a gopher. The judge plays to win but his nubile niece has her mind set on scoring her own way. The playboy shoots perfect golf by pretending he is the ball. And the country club loudmouth just doubled a $20,000 bet on a 10-foot putt. Insanity? No. Caddyshack. Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, Ted Knight and Bill Murray tee off for a side-splitting round of fairway foolishness that does for golf what Animal House did for college fraternities and Police Academy did for law enforcement.

What good can be said of this idiotfest? It's got a cute gopher (who is hardly in the movie), a great Rodney Dangerfield (likewise wasted, except for his wonderous opening scene), and an almost funny Bill Murray (at least he's trying).
All else is abominable. Ted Knight, a great and undervalued comedian, is left painfully stranded (after this, "Too Close for Comfort" was a major step up). The whole, poorly acted, half baked (and unresolved) teenager subplot makes MEATBALLS seem profound by comparison. It even fails as a sex comedy. And do we really need a seduction scene with Chevy chase and massage oil? How masochistic did the producers think their audience was in 1980?
As for the the ludicrous, accompanying dvd "documentary": is it just me, or are Harold Ramis and Chevy Chase competing for the most self-satisfied, smug position in Hollywood's washed up hills? They're every bit as unwatchable as their slug of a movie.
Using the most cliched plotlines imaginable (the "cools versus the rules," and "the little guy needs to find his way in life"), "Caddyshack" nevertheless breaks a lot of new ground with its timeless characters. Chevy Chase plays golf-stuf/playboy Ty Webb, who mangles philosophy while performing dazzling golf feats on the Bushwood Country Club course -- yes, the name "Bushwood" is revealing. Chase has never been better than in this film, and it's almost sad to see how phenomenal he once was when you stand this performance next to the dreck he's put out in recent years.
The underappreciated Ted Knight plays Webb's nemesis, Judge Smails, an uptight petty aristocrat who plays essentially the same role as Dean Wermer in "Animal House." Smails is Elmer Fudd to Webb's Bugs Bunny.
Rodney Dangerfield is also in the film, playing essentially himself as an obnoxious real estate developer with zero fashion sense -- ask ten people to name the character Dangerfield plays in "Caddyshack," and you'll stump ten people. But it's likely that most of those ten will be able to quote Dangerfield's character: "Lovely boy -- now I now why tigers eat their young!" "You're a caddy, huh -- for Italians, this is skilled labor." "This is the ugliest hat I've ever seen, I bet when you buy this they give you a can of soup . . . but it looks good on you, though."
And last but not least, the immortal Bill Murray plays Carl the Groundskeeper. Carl is charged with ridding Bushwood of a gopher, a varmint who loves nothing more than vandalizing golf courses and dancing to Kenny Loggins.Read more ›
John Landis and John Belushi went on to THE BLUES BROTHERS, also released in the summer of '80, but, as loud and as entertaining as it was, BLUES never delivered the laughs like the Deltas did two years before.
Doug Kenney, the mastermind behind ANIMAL HOUSE, went on to write and produce CADDYSHACK but, according to an Esquire profile after his tragic death shortly after, he was pretty coked out by then. The studio bosses referred to it as "that coke movie down in Florida." Harold Ramis, directing his first film, admits that it like "film school" since he felt like he was learning as he went.
Despite all of this, CADDYSHACK was hilarious. I think the second half loses steam, most of Chevy Chase's scenes were flat, and the central character isn't very likable or all that funny--but Rodney Dangerfield, Bill Murray and Ted Knight more than make up for any criticisms.
I'll never forget watching it the first time in a crowded theatre. Rodney burst onto the screen with such a comedic energy that you could hear everyone perking up when he'd show up. And I didn't hear anything but laughter for five mintues after he said, "What, did somebody step on a duck?"
How many comedies have offered so many quotable lines?
(Turn the subtitles on sometime and read what Bill Murray actually says during his "Dala Lama caddy" and "Cinderella story" speeches--all improvised, from what I hear!).Read more ›
The story kicks off as a snobbish head of a ritzy golf coarse, Judge Smails (Ted Knight) tries to take advantage of an high school student, Danny Noonan (Michael O'Keefe) who is interested in law school, but needs the job as a caddy to pay his way through college. Judge Smails is put in his place as a wealthy land developer, Al Czervik (Rodney Dangerfield) come on the scene and wants to build condominiums on the exclusive golf coarse. Ted and Rodney go at each other throughout the entire film, which leaves the viewer on the floor, laughing uncontrollably. If that's not enough, Ty Webb (Chevy Chase) a quiet co-founder of the coarse gets involved and gives his on hilarious performance as the middle man, pulled in many different directions. And of coarse, the most remembered character is the lonely green's keeper, Carl Spackler (Bill Murry) who is having his own private war with a gopher that has been digging up the golf coarse.
The above summery does not do the film justice. With an all star cast and a hilarious script, a soundtrack full of 1980s rock.Read more ›

While it's tough to put a golf movie ahead of Adam Sandler's great Happy Gilmore, no other golf movie has as many memorable lines in it as this one does. Read morePublished on April 27 2004 by Patrick Sheridan
