Can't get a break from laughing.

Classic comedy about a golf country club and its members who are both stuck up snobs and down to earth slobs. Whenever I ask people if they like this movie it tells me if they are a snob or a slob. Made Bill Murray and Rodney Dangerfield's career's. I love this movie.

Caddyshack (1980) C-98m. ? 1/2 D: Harold Ramis. Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, Ted Knight, Michael O'Keefe, Bill Murray. Exclusive golf course now puts up with pushy member and ruinous Murray, among other shenanigans. Irrelevance and destruction take place of comedy in nearly defenseless farce (it does offer Dangerfield at his funniest). Play an actual game of golf instead. Followed by CADDYSHACK II.

First time watching this one all the way through. Rodney Dangerfield and especially Ted White make this one (Dangerfield's hilarious one-liners most of which had to be ad-lib and White's flabbergasted reactions to them) so much that the main plot revolving around Michael O'Keefe's character seems secondary and almost unnecessary.

In this eminently quotable directorial debut from the tragically late, yet unquestionably great Harold Ramis, we get to see a few of comedy's finest names collide in some great scenes of banter and wit and some other fantastic scenes of slapstick and bombast. And does the comedy age well? You'd be surprised at how funny all of this stuff still is. And structurally speaking, this is also something quite interesting to feast upon as well, for "Caddyshack" is essentially a series of vignettes and sketches strung together by a very flimsy narrative throughline. And, while most movies that attempt this often fail miserably, there's just something about "Caddyshack's" spirit and charm that powers the film through the occasional aimless scene. A truly unique and occasionally masterful comedic feat overall.

A watchable but overpraised comedy. It's crude, annoying, and not very funny. The sports aspect makes it moderately enjoyable though. (First viewing - Late teen years)

very overrated. Sometimes terrible sometimes awesome

When you watch CaddyShack now, it's nothing special. But, that doesn't mean it is entertaining with a cast plus a awesome soundtrack to accompany life at the country club.....

The humour is mostly fairly juvenile, but there are some classic moments. Reasonably entertaining.

Caddyshack is a good comedy, but doesn't have a true standout role, performance, or joke.

Success in the movie pool! A simple, fun movie about golf and gophers, Caddyshack really is a classic. We open with Danny Noonan (Michael O'Keefe) having his dad grill him about college funds. After he gets to his job as a caddy, what follows is a hilarious plot of two guys getting into a golf match, while groundskeeper Carl Spackler (Bill Murray) goes all Liam Neeson and Punisher on a hilarious gopher. The effects in this movie are cheap, but believable considering the budget and release time, whether it's a guy getting struck by lightning having some weird blue light around him or the gopher. The gopher's phoniness may be a little obvious, but more believable than what CGI would have done. The soundtrack from Johnny Mandel maintains the cheesy feel to it, and with Kenny Loggins songs, adds to the humor. Overall, Caddyshack is a fun comedy that has two-dimensional characters make spectacles of themselves.

A true classic comedy. It is still funny over 35 years later. It ranks up there with Animal House. Ted Knight was great and showed his dry humor. It is a movie you can watch over and over and you will notice something new. This was one of my favorite movies as a teenager and is one of my kids favorites also.

I almost turned this off, but I stuck with it til the end hoping that it would improve, it didn't.

Some funny moments here & there, just not enough of them.

It's never good when a 90 minute movie feels like 2 hours+

Generous score considering.

Great big gobs of greasy, grimy gopher guts. An absolutely timeless slapstick gut-buster that leaves you feeling happier for having watched it.

It's funny but also very overrated.

Paper thin plot, cheap script, and poor editing make this nutty comedy dated. While at the time it came out it was probably hilarious, watching it now it seems kinda dumb and disjointed compared to more recent comedies. Got a few laughs from me and easy to follow, but def sexist and stereotypical film. Seems like a teenage boy wrote this film at times. The best parts are the cameos from the different comedians and the silly gopher lol.

Best golfing movie (minus Tin Cup)
