Hadn't watched this since I was a kid, and really wish I hadn't re-watched it. The film is just so bad. Jackie Mason can't act and shouldn't have starred in this. The script is awful, and Chevy Chase seems bored out of his mind. No laughs. Just avoid this!

Hilarious even though distinctly separate from the league of the original.

I couldn't conceive of something this abominable if I tried.

A classic......they dumped all over a classic with this witless sequel.

A pitch meeting at Warner Brothers in 1987. "So here it is. 'Caddyshack II!' And not the number 2, mind you, but the Roman numeral II. We replace Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield and Ted Knight with Dyan Cannon, who hasn't worked since 1977, Jackie Mason, who hasn't been funny since Sullivan in 1959, Robert Stack, who isn't cognizant of his surroundings, and, best of all, Jonathan Silverman. THE Jonathan Silverman, star of 'Girls Just Want to Have Fun,' the major motion picture based on a 2-minute-56-second Cyndi Lauper song that doesn't even feature Cyndi Lauper singing the song. And, to direct, we get Allan Arkush, the guy who directed the Andy Kaufman-Bernadette Peters robot love story 'Heartbeeps.' And this is key, instead of an R rating like the original, we keep things to a PG. Not a PG-13! A PG. How can we go wrong?!"

Caddy shack II does NO justice for the Caddy sack. thin plot, thin actors(exception of Randy Quaid). the ONLY thing that is decent with this movie is the soundtrack..maybe. this movie should have been destroyed when the script was written.

The star-studded cast are powerless to inject humor into this lethargic, unoriginal pacified sequel.

Jackie Mason tried to save this, but truthfully, this movie is a tremendous flop. The original is pretty bawdy, but so much better.

Though the lead is likable, nothing else comes anything close to what made the original Caddyshack so good.

"Na, na, na, na..." The wacky adventures at Bushwood Country Club continue in Caddyshack II. Harold Ramis delivers yet another weak script that focuses heavily on class warfare. This time the owner of a construction company tries to join the Bushwood Country Club in order please his daughter, but he proves to be more blue-collar than they care for. Featuring Jackie Mason, Robert Stack, Dan Aykroyd, and Chevy Chase, the cast isn't that bad. But the performances are terrible; Mason in particular is out of control and toxic to the film. While screwball comedies tend to be pretty zany, Caddyshack II is overloaded with craziness; making it incredibly stupid.

8 years later, and it did take a lot of trying, but Warner Bros. were determined to make a sequel to Caddyshack, this time enlisting Allan Arkush (Rock 'n' Roll High School (1979) and Heartbeeps (1981)), to direct the film, with Harold Ramis returning to write the film, but most of his work was heavily re-written. Plus, the film is essentially a retread of the first film, although with a different cast. Set at Bushwood Country Club, local Jewish businessman Jack Hartounian (Jackie Mason) and his daughter Kate (Jessica Lundy), apply for membership at the club, but Jack's reputation of building low-cost housing for poorer families doesn't go down well with the snooty members, including Bushwood President Chandler Young (Robert Stack). But, Jack gets the last laugh when he goes to Ty Young (Chevy Chase), and buys his majority share in Bushwood, and decides to open it up to general public turning it into an amusement park, much to Young's absolute disgust, so he hires Captain Tom Everett (Dan Aykroyd) to put a stop to it. While there are one or two laughs here, it's just the same as the original, with Chase doing little more than an extended cameo, it smack of studio compromise and cynical cash-in. They did try to get much of the original cast back, but they were all disgusted by the quality of the script, and it is all over the place.

My Favorite Comedy Film Is 1933's Duck Soup.

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 !

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.

Why even bother without the original cast, or an R-rating?
½ December 27, 2012
What is it with comedy sequels always being awful!?
½ 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.
