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.

Coloquemos da seguinte forma: Elizabeth Taylor envelheceu melhor do que este filme...

A crude comedy.

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

Does it hold together as a quality comedy? No, not really.

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.

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

Caddyshack, a derelict farce that lurches about in search of hilarious possibilities among the members and employes of a country club, is the latest misbegotten spawn of National Lampoon's Animal House.

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

I know this movie is silly, but when the final credits roll and that little gopher is dancing to the opening bars of "I'm alright", you just can't help but smile.

One of the all-time classic comedies. Lightning in a bottle, in a bunker.

A genial, idiotic '80s comedy in a golf club-setting with near-mythic resonance for those who watched it in adolescence.

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