Overview

Master of infantilism Adam Sandler stars as the title character, an overgrown rich kid who wiles away his days poolside, swilling kegs of beer and appreciating fine nudie magazines such as "Drunk Chicks" -- that is, until his father Darren McGavin decides to test his mettle as future head of the family business by posing a challenge: retake and pass grades K-12 in 24 weeks or watch control of the business pass to the requisite conniving underling Bradley Whitford.

Overview

Master of infantilism Adam Sandler stars as the title character, an overgrown rich kid who wiles away his days poolside, swilling kegs of beer and appreciating fine nudie magazines such as "Drunk Chicks" -- that is, until his father Darren McGavin decides to test his mettle as future head of the family business by posing a challenge: retake and pass grades K-12 in 24 weeks or watch control of the business pass to the requisite conniving underling Bradley Whitford. Forced into action, Billy vows to change his drunken ways. He enrolls in kindergarten, makes new friends, pelts pint-sized kids with playground balls and develops a love interest in a pretty teacher Bridgitte Wilson. The action culminates in an academic showdown between Billy and the purportedly Harvard-educated underling for the future of the family enterprise -- no small feat for a man fresh out of the first grade. There's gross, moronic, off-color low humor galore in Billy Madison, particularly in one subplot involving a romantically forward elementary school principal Josh Mostel, son of theater great Zero Mostel and his secret former life as a professional wrestler; another scene includes the hypertense school bus driver Chris Farley, in a typical over-the-top cameo lying in the meadow with a hallucinatory penguin. As one might suspect, Billy Madison is not for every taste; Sandler fans will laugh from start to finish; others beware.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Assuming top billing for the first time in this willfully stunted comedy, Adam Sandler unleashed the soon-familiar persona that would widely divide moviegoers but provide indisputable results at the box office for years to come. Here was born the debate about whether Sandler is a lowbrow comic genius or a moronic gadfly signifying the end of good taste and intelligence as we know it. For those able to give themselves over to its sophomoric charms, Billy Madison is a knee-slapping celebration of a spoiled idiot who learns decency from a gaggle of children who wet their pants at recess. Sure, Sandler is over the top -- in fact, he's so far over it that it's nowhere in sight. But that's the point in this movie, in which Sandler is essentially the mean-spirited version of Tom Hanks' character in Big, throwing tantrums appropriate to someone of his underdeveloped intellect. It's hard to resist Sandler when he yells, "You blew it!" in his trademark guttural shout after his eight-year-old friend botches a phone conversation with his crush. The reverse shot shows the young boy grinning in spite of himself, suggesting that children accept Sandler as he is, a ridiculous but ultimately harmless clown, and perhaps they're the best judges of character. Those who want Sandler to be something other than an intense, bellowing man-child -- or just wish he would go away -- aren't the intended audience, anyway. Simpatico supporting turns by Norm McDonald, Steve Buscemi, and Chris Farley provide either more giggles for the willing or more ammo for the obstinate.

    My Favoite Adam Sandler Movie!

    Billy Madison is a very hilariosly funny movie and is my favorite Adam Sandler movie. I love comedy movies and the sillier the better! Great movie to watch when you are sick or just feeling a little down and need some laughs to cheer you up. I have the old DVD that just includes a letterbox widescreen version and the only bonus feature is the original theatrical trailer. I don't have the new special edition DVD but if I purchased it, it would definitely be the anamorphic widescreen version and not the pan and scan version.
