Let me tell those reading my review a story. Once upon a time, there was a comedian named Adam Sandler. He was one of the greatest and most enjoyable faces in comedy. Now, not so much, but in the 90's, he was the man. Happy Gilmore was a perfect example. Possibly the greatest comedy ever written, and one of the best sports movies. It is definately a personal favorite of mine.
The fight between Bob Barker is easily the most memorable moment, but there are also plenty of other laugh out loud moments in this masterpiece of laughter. The final course, the old lady "signing" scene and most of the scenes involving Shootetr McMavin will have you gasping for air.
It has a decent amount of heart too. Carl Weathers does a fantastic job as Chubbs, one of the more likeable characters in the movie, as does Frances Bay as Happy's grandma. Don't listen to the critics who say this movie doesn't have heart, because it truly does.
Adam Sandler actually does a decent job acting beyond simply making the audience laugh. His role as Happy is realistic, emotional and wacky all at the same time.
Go into this movie with a negative attitude, and you will probably be dissapointed. However, go into this movie with a medium attitude and you will be amazed at the wonders Sandler manages to conjure. A classic.
