Greenskeeper Carl Spackler is about to start World War III – against a gopher. Pompous Judge Smalls plays to win but his nubile niece Lacey Underall wants to score her own way. Playboy Ty Webb shoots perfect golf by becoming the ball. And country club loudmouth Al Czervik just doubled a $20,000 bet on a 10-foot putt. Insanity? No. Caddyshack. Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, Bill Murray and Ted Knight tee off for a side-splitting round of fairway foolishness that does for golf what National Lampoon’s Animal House did for fraternities and Police Academy did for law enforcement. With Harold Ramis National Lampoon’s Vacation, Analyze This directing, the virtuoso skills of all four blend into a riotous hole-in-one for comedy fans. SPECIAL FEATURES: • Soundtrack Newly Remastered in Dolby Digital 5.1 • Retrospective Featurette Caddyshack: The 19th Hole • Theatrical Trailer • Languages: English, Français Dubbed in Quebec & Español • Subtitles: English, Français & Español Main Feature. Bonus Material/Trailer May Not Be Subtitled.
A purely tasteless, moronic, guilty pleasure. Director HaroldRamis employs a mixture of Mad magazine/National Lampoon maturity and Saturday Night Live sarcasm in this goofball golf comedy set on the grounds of a posh country club. Somewhere buried in the slapstick antics, drug references, Marx Brothers-like insults, and gratuitous sex scenes are the intertwined, forgettable subplots of a poor caddie Michael O'Keefe trying to earn enough cash to attend college, and golf-tournament and class battles between rich and even richer snobs. Mainly, Ramis just lets his colorful group of eccentrics crash into each other, relying on several inspired performances to create several hilarious moments of sketch comedy. Most come from the trio of Bill Murray playing a vile, obsessed groundskeeper engaged in a one-man war with a charismatic and very stuffed gopher, Rodney Dangerfield basically re-creating his crude standup routine, and Chevy Chase who looks bemusedly stoned throughout. Quotable favorites include Murray's acted-out fantasy of winning the Masters, his tall tale about caddying for the Dalai Lama, an overreaching priest's rain-soaked golf game, Dangerfield's verbal assault on the club's uptight dining patrons, and Chase's lesson on the essence of golf "Be the ball, Danny". A perfect double feature with other comparably crass films such as National Lampoon's Vacation or Stripes. --Dave McCoy
