The first-time director, Harold Ramis, can't hold it together: the picture lurches from style to style (including some ill-placed whimsy with a gopher puppet) and collapses somewhere between sitcom and sketch farce.

This vaguely likable, too-tame comedy falls short of the mark.

If you're still at the age when farting and nose-picking seem funny, then Caddyshack should knock you dead.

Caddyshack never finds a consistent comic note of its own, but it plays host to all sorts of approaches from its stars, who sometimes hardly seem to be occupying the same movie.

A pleasantly loose-limbed sort of movie with some comic moments, most of them belonging to Mr. Dangerfield.

There's still a lot of fun in this movie, and most of that comes from the heartfelt performances from the cast.

Classic '80s comedy; not for kids.

Never mind the fact that the plot regularly goes off track and into the rough, Caddyshack offers laughs a plenty.

dependant almost entirely--when it's not being angry and cynical--on arrogance and smugness.

Given the short shelf life of many rude 'n' crude Hollywood comedies, it's amazing how well Caddyshack stands up after all these years.

Director Harold Ramis doesn't help matters through his lethargic staging of several major slapstick sequences.

Still every bit as funny, and every bit as stupid, as it was twenty years ago.

One of those rare comedies where everything clicks. A true classic.

Overrated and dumb comedy with a few funny moments.

The plot wanders around the golf course and involves a half-dozen elements, but if you simply dig the gopher, the caddy, and the Dangerfield, you're not going to be doing half bad.

A caddy pursues one of his clients for a scholarship amidst the backdrop of several other colorful characters.
As a series of sketches, this film is whimsical and occasionally fun. The only moments of "sophisticated" comedy come from the class depictions with the rich portrayed as stuffy and mean-spirited and the poor portrayed as fun-loving and sexual but constantly looking through the plate glass window, hoping to trade places. However, as a film - a consistent, conflict- or character-driven story - Caddyshack doesn't hold together. Each of the stars get to do his bit, and in the end the film seems like a series of bits haphazardly edited together.
Overall, Rodney Dangerfield, Bill Murray, and Chevy Chase may have comedic talent, but this film only works in the actors' individual sound bytes.

I really do envy people who were alive when this movie was made. In 1980, when people were called funny, they really were funny. Nowadays, the people considered funny aren't really funny at all. (Seth Mcfarlane, Will Ferrel.) Caddyshack has a big cast of people who can genuinely make people laugh. They all play memorable characters and are given some of the funniest dialogue. If I were to make a list of top 10 most quotable movies, Caddyshack would easily make the list. My personal favorite performance is Rodney Dangerfield as Al Czervik. Everything he says and does just makes me laugh. (He also has the world's coolest golf club bag.) The rest of the cast also do a stellar job in their roles. Chevy Chase has always been a funny guy and he definately is in this movie, Ted Knight does a really good job of the judge who gets aggravated really easily and Bill Murray provides some of the most memorable scenes in the movie. His subplot with the gophers is just classic. My favorite scene in the movie is the pool scene. It's a plethora of just teen caddys going apeshit all over the place. Caddyshack took the world's most boring sport (Golf) and made what could've been a tedious movie into a classic that will be remembered as one of the funniest comedies ever made.

Despite the fact that there was a lot of freedom for the film makers to do whatever they wanted to do in production it's still a hilarious comedy classic that's faster paced than even the likes of Airplane! and deserves its reputation for being quotable. The cast bring their extremely memorable characters to life fantasticallly and young Bill Murray is very fun to watch when he's trying to kill the golf course's gopher. Ultimately, Caddyshack is a hilarious classic comedy and one of the few slapstick movies that are so stupid that you actually manage to laugh with it.
