Caddyshack (1980)


Rodney Dangerfield
Bill Murray
Chevy Chase

I have to disagree with Jami on this movie. You have to look at this movie from the comedic standpoint. Rodney Dangrfield who plays Al Czervik is brilliant in this movie! The lines that he comes out with are classic! I know this becuase I hear people constantly quote these famous lines all the time. Even though it was made in 1980, I hear many young people quoting lines from it and recommending it to their friends.

The plot of this movie is based around Bushwood Country Club and the status that one needs to be a member at this "elite" club. Rodney Dangerfield makes Judge Smails, who plays the complete protagonist, look like a fool. His witty and quick remarks make this movie a timeless classic! And honestly, who doesn't like a dancing gopher and a babbeling idiot (Bill Murray)? Al Czervik does everything to make Bushwood look bad. However, the caddy's like him because he gives good tips and makes them laugh because he is always cracking jokes about the judge. Although the movie focuses on Al Czervik and his story, there also appears to be a subplot. This subplot foucses on Danny, who is the financially unstable young caddy, and the relationship with his girlfriend.
I'm sure everyone has seen Caddyshack and most probably owns a copy of it. If you haven't seen it, it is time that you go out and watch it!
