Audience Reviews for Caddyshack

  • Sep 19, 2018
    Apart from a generally effective slapstick humor and a few hilarious scenes (especially all those with Rodney Dangerfield), mostly everything else feels old and dated in this overrated comedy that wastes the talent of its cast in awful lines of improvised dialogue and juvenile gags.

    In the vein of "us poor guys against those rich s.o.b.s" begun with Animal House comes this slapstick laden farce of the same hijinks on a snobby golf course. Some Saturday Night Live alum are there to solidify the "it's the revolution, so pass the joint" aesthetic, while old school comedians hold down the main plot line. It's a mixed bag with spotty humor, most efforts embarrassing and groanworthy. Save this one for one of those nights you and the missus open up that special package hidden in the back of the freezer to smoke to remember the old days of "we thought we were rebellious" youth.

    Caddyshack is an all time great comedy film that uses great characters, great lines, and great humor styles to its advantage. Bill Murray, Chevy Chase and Rodney Dangerfield give great comedic performances with Dangerfield giving one of the best of all time.

    Kinda silly. Just okay. I was more invested in the realistic plot with the worldly cad and his ambitious caddy, played by suave Chevy Chase and earnest Michael O'Keefe, respectively, and not so much Bill Murray's garbled gopher-hunting.
