Critic Review - Film Freak Central

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

I am watching this movie right now, and I actually registered to this site JUST so I could leave a comment on your review. You must be the most arrogant, stuck-up, humorless reviewer I've ever stumbled upon. Your analysis of this movie is awful. Maybe I'm drunk, but calling this movie "cynical and smug" is probably the most ironic thing I've ever read. You're either a rich, yacht driving asshole who hates to be criticized for being a total dick, or you're just flat out boring and pathetic. If you can't see the funny in this movie, the intentional stupidity, the chevy chase and bill murray idiocy at its finest, the you are all of these things by complete accident. You should not be allowed to review movies. You simply should not, period. By the way, using big words doesn't make you a good writer - good writing does. You suck.

Wait, so you're telling me that Caddyshack doesn't have the plot continuity or character development of Citizen Kane? Holy shit, dude, you're an absolute fucking genius.

I have no idea what kind of "sensitive coming-of-age" piece you and Douglas Kenney were hoping for in Caddyshack, but perhaps your humorless, curmudgeonly ass would be happier if you joined him. I know we would. No doubt you were in your mid-seventies when this movie was first released, and the stick you had in your ass then is fully petrified now, but regardless, you should understand that for pre-octogenarians of the era, this movie was just about some cheap laughs while having a bit of fun at the expense of the country club set. Between the triumphant big screen debut of Rodney Dangerfield, an exquisitely smarmy performance by Ted Knight, memorable contributions from Chevy Chase and Bill Murray, and the oh so perky tits of Cindy Morgan, this flick has become a national institution. So why all the negativity, you mirthless fuck? Your obvious hard-on for early SNL castmembers notwithstanding, perhaps you'd be better off if you limited yourself to reviewing PBS documentaries in the future.
