Who's Your Caddy? Reviews
The movie is an obvious retread of that untouchable classic "Caddyshack", and while it never approaches greatness like that picture, it is buoyant and likable most of the way. There are some crude moments, but the movie wisely keeps its boundaries. That's rare for a movie such as this.
Outkast rapper Big Boi is surprisingly enjoyable in the lead role, and he has surrounded himself with a cast that appears game for anything. Even disgraced actor Jeffrey Jones is decent in the throwaway role of the perpetually foiled bad guy much like his character in "Ferris Bueller".
A little push and some ambition and they really could have had something here. I laughed a few times, and smiled a lot. Just not enough for me to whole-heartedly get behind "Who's Your Caddy?". Still, if you saw me heading into the theater you would have thought I was going to my own execution. There's a pulse here, and some promise that is only marginally realized.
plus it's a comedy all around with some great lessons and what a cast
you can actually relate to the story and it's characters
Caddyshack got a much needed reworking in this film. I had grown tired of that boring and unsatisfying "comedy" of sorts. This is a refreshing new direction for modern film and I believe this is the beginning of a prosperous film career for Big Boi. The polo scenes were exhilarating to say the least. The story touched me deeply, with the final scene leaving me in tears. It is a great step in illuminating racism in our society, revealing that people of all cultural backgrounds can enjoy the thrill of golf. Truly, it has been years since a film has come along with such cultural impact. Bravo.
Also nice sideboob.
I was glad it had some sort of a storyline behind it. It was funny to see Big Boi do something different besides just music. I loved the differences between the characters since they were such opposites.
I want that house & that golf cart. Had me laughing thru it! Which was completely shocking!
