Caddyshack II (1988)



Critic Consensus: Handicapped by a family friendly PG rating, even the talents of Caddyshack II's all-star comic cast can't save it from its lazy, laughless script and uninspired direction.

This PG-rated romp is bland bananas compared to its R-rated predecessor.

Top Critic

On and on they come -- Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, Jackie Mason, Dyan Cannon, Randy Quaid -- all trying to crack us up, all failing miserably.

It's shoddy, lazy and numbingly stupid.

Chicago Tribune
Top Critic

Caddyshack II is the kind of film that sends careers spiraling downward.

New York Times
Top Critic

It's patronizing and clumsily manipulative, and top banana Jackie Mason is upstaged by the gopher puppet.

Audience Reviews for Caddyshack II

Compared to the original movie, which is considered an 80s classic, this movie is horrible. I do not recommend it.

"Caddyshack 2" might not be one of the best sequels ever made, but I didn't think it was as bad as a lot of people seem to think it was. I thought parts of it such as the waterslide prank and the gopher playing its dirty tricks was hilarious. But I do agree that it's not a classic like the original was and that it's not as funny because it doesn't feature the hilarious cast that the original had. But it's not all that bad of a sequel in my opinion. I've seen much worse.
If you liked the original "Caddyshack" movie, I would recommend at least watching "Caddyshack 2." NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2000.
