Caddyshack II Reviews

My Favorite Comedy Film Is 1933's Duck Soup.
December 18, 2013
Before seeing Caddyshack II I had never seen Caddyshack, and considering how many Golden Raspberry Awards Caddyshack II was nominated for it would clearly have to be poor material. But I figured watching it before Caddyshackwould make it of slightly lesser poor quality.

Caddyshack II doesn't have enough golf for a sports comedy, or enough laughs for a good comedy, so it's a failure as a sports film and as a comedy film. To put it simply, Caddyshack II is a failure and I'm certain it worst quality is that it bears the name Caddyshack in its title when its predecessor is such a critically acclaimed comedy classic.
The concepts in Caddyshack II are clearly unoriginal and dull, and the entire film is laugh free. The script and storyline are uncreative and there is nothing new that it brings to the table like the first Caddyshack did. All it supplies is lame actors at their career low points trying to capture the dying spirit from the comedy classic Caddyshack but failing abysmally most of the time.
And the production team were clearly a bunch of gophers, because whoever they hired as the voice actor for the horses needs to get a different career pattern, because it was so unconvincing, pathetic and unfunny that it just brought down Caddyshack II's already low credibility. If it was Frank Welker then I blame the director, because bad voice acting can never be his fault.
Caddyshack II suffers as a terrible and unfunny flim as well as being a bad sequel that suffers from all the issues that a bad sequel usually does, including the lack of fresh material that its predecessor supplied and a cast which fails to match the ensemble set up by Caddyshack, as well as characters that aren't interesting or worth paying focus to. Alan Arkush's inexperienced direction is no better here than it was in Deathsport, except that this time he is working with talent which he and his terrible movie manages to drag down, and his terrible direction is a serious cause of the blame here. But then again, so is Dan Akroyd's performance.
Dan Akroyd, well, whoever the hell told him to give an abysmal performance like that has suffered serious brain damage. If it was his idea, then clearly Dan Akroyd's comedic spirit must be in spirit prison. His voice itself is more ridiculous than the aforementioned terrible horse voice, and it gets very annoying to listen to very fast. It isn't funny, its Golden Raspberry Award material. Luckily they realised that and awarded him the Worst Supporting Actor award, and hopefully that would help the filmmakers distinguish between good comedy and utter stupidity.
The only real good qualities of Caddyshack II are that the puppetry of the gopher and the silly dynamics that he goes through are both decent, and the presence of Chevy Chase again is genial because he gives a decent performance. Caddyshack II is also shot well on some good locations and features fine cinematography to back it up.

But really, nobody could have thought that Caddyshack II was a good idea, yet it didn't stop the money grubbing producers who must have learned their lesson from this Golden Raspberry Award winning box office bomb.

what were they thinking ? . thumbs down !
September 30, 2013
Never allow director Allan Arkush to have a script in his hand ever again. Or a thought in his brain. Thanks for ruining 18 rounds of golf, man. Caddyshack 2 may as well have not existed.
July 23, 2013
Why even bother without the original cast, or an R-rating?
December 27, 2012
What is it with comedy sequels always being awful!?
March 1, 2013
Just another failed sequal attempt on recreating the humor of the first film.
And Dan Aykroyds attempt to mimic Bill Murray's character was just plain out shameful.

I died a little inside as I watched this movie.
December 7, 2012
Would like to see at some stage.
December 5, 2012
Movies like this are the reason why people don't trust sequels.
October 31, 2012
Better than the first, with Mason really stealing the show. Stack is great as the villian.
October 14, 2012
It's not that good really, but if you watch this movie in the right mood then it still has some good laughs. Chase and Randy Quaid have some good moments but it's Dan Aykroyd that steals the movie, not as funny as Bill Murray in the first movie but still very funny.
August 25, 2012
try watching this without killing yourself.
August 23, 2012
Some sequels work, some don't. This film, from what I learned, is one of them. No thanks; I'm better off with the original.

A scene-stealing gofer, a funny Jackie Mason, and a great contribution from Chevy Chase are the highlights of this ho-hum sequel; the gags are too sporadic and Dan Aykroyd delivers the most annoying and off-putting performance of his career.
April 9, 2012
not as good as the first one...
March 31, 2012
Not as prolific and star-studded as the original, but still a fun movie.
March 24, 2012
What were Dan Ackroyd, Chevy Chase, and Randy Quaid doing in this film? I can only assume it was a favour to someone, and probably one they regretted. The rest of the cast were very weak, as was the comedy, without the famous three mentioned above, I'm not sure there would be any comedy at all actually. Jackie Mason, the main character, is incredibly annoying, and as a sequel, there are too many similarities wtih the first film for it to earn any credibility of it's own.
March 17, 2012
Not as good as the first...Still, classic!
July 22, 2009
Wanna see it because the first one was so good
