Summary: There isn no denying that the steam roller success story that is the career of Adam Sandler has had an impact on the comedy genre for the past 20 years. Whether loved or loathed, this guy has made a fortune attempting to make people laugh, Happy Gilmore, while juvenile, crude, promoting violence for laughs and being utterly brainless, is quite a hysterical and side-splitting story, for all its faults, one can't help but appreciate some of the hilarious scenes throughout...
Summary: Adam Sandler has certainly made some terrible movies but Happy Gilmore, a film that is still talked about more than fifteen years after its release, is certainly not one of them. Sure the movie pretty much relies on one joke, namely the fact that Gilmore is an angry hockey player playing golf, but from than one joke it is able to produce more than enough laughs to warrant a watch.
Summary: I've seen this movie 1000 times, and you know what, it's STILL funny! It's classic, amazing movies like this, that keep getting Adam Sandler work today. They are hoping every PG-13 "family" comedy will capture the magic that Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison had. You can't truly appreciate just how bad Sandler's current films are until you see how amazing his old ones were and this one, is one kids will still be watching 100 years from now.
Summary: The best Sandler Movie. Someone explain to me how this movie got a 31 metacrtic rating?? Critics are so Sophisticated they don't really understand what the real person wants or likes in a movie....to all you idiot critics Ill see you afterwards in the parking lot.
Summary: Roger Ebert you are a fool! This film is one of the greatest comedies of all time! I don't think I go a day without saying "Shooter!". This one of my favorite films and everyone I know loves it so screw you critics the fans have spoken! I made this account because of this garbage. Im giving it a 10 to balance the ridiculous 31. But i'd give it an 80 overall.
Summary: The scene with Bob Barker is a classic, but I have a hard time getting beyond Sandler's angry man-child schtick, which gets old fast and attempts to mask a thin plot and some pretty terrible acting. Maybe I hold comedies to too high of a standard.
Summary: A very likable, light hearted, romantic comedy with a few memorable moments that makes watching golf not suck, teaches some anger management...."go to your happy place" and lets Adam Sandler do his thing.
Summary: Adam Sandler as the temperamental hockey fanatic Happy Gilmore is invited by Chubbs Peterson (Carl Weathers) to a local tournament to pay his debt of $270,000 to the IRS. Funnier than most of Sandler's films but still has some unbelievable scenes. Cameo of Bob Parker is one of the highlights of the films, even giving him a few lines. Overall, it could have been better. Happy Gilmore is a fun comedy related to golf and helping a relative out.
