There is a plot to this enjoyably erratic comedy... But basically it's a framework on which the writers, two of whom (Harold Ramis and Douglas Kenney) are Animal House alumni, can hang vulgar, obvious, yet often amusing gags.

Caddyshack, a derelict farce that lurches about in search of hilarious possibilities among the members and employes of a country club, is the latest misbegotten spawn of National Lampoon's Animal House.

There's still a lot of fun in this movie, and most of that comes from the heartfelt performances from the cast.

Never mind the fact that the plot regularly goes off track and into the rough, Caddyshack offers laughs a plenty.

dependant almost entirely--when it's not being angry and cynical--on arrogance and smugness.

Given the short shelf life of many rude 'n' crude Hollywood comedies, it's amazing how well Caddyshack stands up after all these years.

Despite being ungainly, Caddyshack is the kind of comedy you can pan for gold in... [Blu-ray]

Director Harold Ramis doesn't help matters through his lethargic staging of several major slapstick sequences.

Still every bit as funny, and every bit as stupid, as it was twenty years ago.

The first-time director, Harold Ramis, can't hold it together: the picture lurches from style to style (including some ill-placed whimsy with a gopher puppet) and collapses somewhere between sitcom and sketch farce.

This vaguely likable, too-tame comedy falls short of the mark.

If you're still at the age when farting and nose-picking seem funny, then Caddyshack should knock you dead.
