Caddyshack

AKA:
 
 
Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield and Bill Murray star in the timeless comedy classic CADDYSHACK, which covers a chain of events at the Bushwood Country Club.

The movie centers around young adult Danny Noonan (Michael O’Keefe), a caddy who will do anything to get himself a college scholarship, even if he has to play golf to win one. When he’s not practicing golf, Danny is either hanging out with his girlfriend Maggie (Sarah Holcomb) or working as a caddy at the club.

When Danny is playing golf, golfing pro Ty Webb (Chase) is there to show him the ropes, like telling him to be the ball while swinging it. Ty never keeps score when he plays, but he remains a close friend of Danny’s and does his best to get him up there with the best.

Class clown Al Czervik (Dangerfield) is the goofy golfer who will do anything to make enough money to buy the country club and turn it into a brothel. He also likes to make a fool out of obnoxious country club owner Judge Smails (Ted Knight) by making bets and turning things upside down.

Then, there’s greenskeeper Carl Spackler (Murray), who is hired by Smails to get rid of a gopher terrorizing the golf course. He is a good golfer, but he spends much of his time seeking out a plan to get the best of the gopher with every possible weapon that he can come up with.

Will Danny come out the golf champion? Will Czervik be able to buy the club? Will Carl turn the gopher into smush?...

Verdict?

Though only a modest hit at the box-office, "Caddyshack" has since become a cult classic and has always been a part of 80's history. The movie is full of laughter, and it probably owes most of it to Rodney Dangerfield, but the gopher is the real star of the movie.

"Caddyshack" is a true classic and a very funny movie, despite mixed reviews. Even if you don't like golf, you will probably still enjoy it.
