Caddyshack: 20th Anniversary Edition
A no-brainer that has become a low-brow classic, this 1980 comedy makes anarchy the rule of the day, unleashing the antics of Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield, Ted Knight, and Chevy Chase. Caddyshack is about the scheme of a vulgar land developer (Dangerfield) who wants to build condominiums on the site of a ritzy country club. Director Harold Ramis (who later reunited with Murray to make Groundhog Day) is content to let the comedy follow a variety of wacky detours, most notably Murray's maniacal war with a gopher that has been digging up the golf course. Dangerfield ultimately steals the show, firing off a battery of one-liners, insults, and tasteless gags. Caddyshack is the kind of movie some people have been known to watch several times a year, reciting every line of dialogue like the followers of a bizarre comedic ritual. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

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.
Forget the plot; simply sit back and let director Harold Ramis take you on a 90-minute knee-slapping ride. Chevy Chase, Ted Knight, and Bill Murray are exceptional, but crude and rude Rodney Dangerfield most effectively captains the CADDYSHACK boat. But let's give kudos to ALL of the characters--this was a great cast, from top to bottom. Two of my favorite minor characters included Spaulding (John F. Barmon Jr.), the whiny, nose-picking nephew of Judge Smails; and "The Bishop" (Henry Wilcoxen), who has quite the ontological ephiphany during a robust round of golf.
CADDYSHACK has it all: the "snobs vs. slobs," beer, booze, crude pranks, one-liners, pratfalls, adolescent humor, great Kenny Loggins music--even a wacky gopher. Oh, and did I mention golf? Think I'll cancel today's round and call up some buddies.
Caddyshack features fine performances from Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield, Chevy Chase, Ted Knight, and of course, the gopher. This motion picture is replete with sight gags and one-liners that to this day are repeated by afficianados of clever satire.
You don't have to be a lowbrow to like this movie, and just because you think it's funny doesn't mean there's something wrong with you. Caddyshack and Animal House withstand the test of time as two of the funniest comedies ever made...and that stands for a lot! The next time you find someone who thinks you're a reprobate for liking this movie, get Carl the Greenskeeper to cut his hamstring...he'll never play golf again!

Just when I thought I couldn't watch the rest of the movie, a hysteric comedic scene or line brought me out of it. Rodney is unforgettable. Read morePublished on July 18 2004 by Chris
"Caddyshack" combines terrific comic writing, a top-notch cast at the top of its game, and America's love affair with the silly game of golf to form comedy gold. Read morePublished on June 29 2004 by Scott Schiefelbein
