CaddyshackDirector: Harold Ramis
The smash success Caddyshack became a prototype for countless other wacky T&A-tinged teen comedies of the early 1980s. At an exclusive country club for WASPish snobs, an ambitious young caddy (Michael O'Keefe) from an overpopulated home eagerly pursues a caddy scholarship in hopes of attending college and, in turn, avoiding a job at the lumber yard. In order to succeed, he must first win the favor of the elitist Judge Smails (Ted Knight), then the caddy golf tournament which the good judge sponsors. Of course, there are love interests as well -- one good, one naughty -- not to mention several foes he must vanquish along the way. The story itself serves to string along a series of slapstick scenes involving an obnoxious nouveau riche land developer (Rodney Dangerfield) who wants to turn the site into a condominium community; an oddball, Zen-quoting, millionaire slacker/golf ace (Chevy Chase); and a psychotic groundskeeper (Bill Murray) with a gopher-fixation. Caddyshack was a bona fide hit; throughout the '80s and '90s, director Harold Ramis would continue to create such hits as Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day, and Analyze This.

While there were some funny moments, it wasn't Bill Murray's best flick. It didn't take long to get sick of seeing that gopher as well as Rodney Dangerfield's signature gyrations and twiches. But I did get a big kick out of Ted Knight. He played the perfect country club snob.
bad it was just bad! But had funny parts
Simply the funniest movie ever made. If you have not seen the movie at least twice you are missing out on an amazing film. The clever wit and one liners of Chevy Chase, the over the top performance by Ted Night as Judge Smails, and utter ridiculousness of Bill Murray, every character in the movie delivers classic line after classic line. This might be the most quoteable movie ever made, and whether you like golf or not, it is still great. A must own in any DVD collection, whether you are a baby boomer who watched SNL during its creation, or a teenager who likes funny movies, what a stellar classic. I cannot say enough about this film.
Caddyshack is a very good comedy movie about a group of golfers and caddies at a country club golf course and it is very funny. The whole cast is great but especially Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield, and Ted Knight!
What landed Jim Murray his stardom as the naughty greenskeeper. Rodney Dangerfield keeps the one liners coming as this classic comedy is unmatched.
This game is about average for a board game. Devotees of the movie will appreciated the level of detail in some of the questions, while the more causal user may be somewhat annoyed. All in all we have played it twice, but don't find it particularly compelling. Considering the relatively high price, you would probably do better buying Clue of Monopoly if you were in the market for a new board game.
Modern classic comedy movie , at an affordable price.
