Adam Sandler stars as Billy Madison in the outrageous comedy where the subject is always fun. 27-year-old Billy Madison must repeat all 12 grades of school - in just 24 weeks - to earn his father’s respect and prove he has what it takes to run the family’s multi-million dollar empire. Along the way, Billy falls for his 3rd grade teacher (Bridgette Wilson), gets kicked out of school and must face-off with his nemesis…not to mention a pesky penguin. With hilarious appearances by Chris Farley, Norm MacDonald and Steve Buscemi, this comedy hit gets an A+ for laughs!
For Adam Sandler fans only, this dopey comedy features the former Saturday Night Live star as an overindulged rich guy whose father insists he repeat grades 1 through 12 before taking over the family business. The scenario is perfect for Sandler's infantile leanings (which he has fortunately outgrown in more recent movies), and for the most part the jokes about being too old and too big for the experiment are obvious. Chris Farley and Steve Buscemi turn up in uncredited cameo appearances, but otherwise the film is pretty dismissible, except for those diehards who can't get enough of Sandler. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Adam Sandler delivers a performance for fans of common people comedy. He doesn't try to deliver an Oscar quality performance for the uppity reviewers, just for people who understand his humor. What Sandler gives people is a funny movie with a great story, though improbable. Sandler's character Billy is a bum of a son who just sits around all day at his rich business dads mansion and parties. When he finds out his dad is retiring and the company his dad runs is going to his enemy, Billy has to take action. Billy makes a deal with is dad to go back to school, to prove his worth, by passing each grade over a two week period for each grade, graduate by June, and he gets the company. Not as simple as it sounds.
The things that happen to him by going back to school teaches him a lot of lessons, funny lessons at that. Watch the movie if you want to know all the adventures of Billy. Good times.
I think Sandler is a comic genius, and few comedians could make such a silly, silly movie a real success.Read more ›
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.
Sandler plays a spoiled 28 year old, drunken, moron who is heir to his father's Hotel dynasty. In hopes that his only son would take over the family business, his father is shocked to realize that his own son is so stupid that he had to pay his way through school. After all, who spells Rock "R-O-K"? Determined that he should take over the family business, Sandler makes a bet with his father that if he goes back to school and scores good grades in each grade in a week (1 grade, 1 week), that he should get to take over the family business.
Along with his best friend Norm McDonald and the help of fellow SNL Alumni Chris Farley and of course the help of his classmates and sexy teacher Bridgette Wilson, Sandler makes Billy Madison the most fun and funniest movie that he has on his bill so far. I assure you, you will laugh until it hurts with this one. Get Billy Madison and have yourself a total laugh!
