Movie Review

Caddyshack (1980)


Directed by: Harold Ramis

Starring: Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, Ted Knight, Cindy Morgan, and Bill Murray

Danny Noonan (Michael O’Keefe) is a teen who really wants to go to college but his parents can’t afford it, so he goes to work at the ritzy Bushwood Country Club as a caddy.    He initially caddies for Ty Webb (Chevy Chase), one of the co-founders of Bushwood but starts caddying for Judge Elihu Smails (Ted Knight) when he learns of a caddy scholarship available through the country club.  Smails controls this scholarship fund, so Danny focuses on charming him.  When real estate tycoon Al Czervik (Rodney Dangerfield) comes along and mocks Smails’ golf skills, things get complicated for the young caddy.  Smail's determination to prove Czervik wrong may cost Danny his scholarship.  Meanwhile, Bushwood’s groundskeeper Carl Spackler (Bill Murray) is obsessed with removing a gopher from the course by any means necessary.

Caddyshack is shamelessly rude and crude.  It’s got classic slapstick comedy and unforgettable one-liners.  Don’t miss out on this fun sports flick.  Caddyshack gets a 0.03% rating.
