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.

[4/10]

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)

There are a lot of reasons to like 'Caddyshack'. It's a good time. It has a lot of laughs. The writing raises the tide so the acting appears better. We have two of the best comedic actors of the time in Chevy Chase and Bill Murray. The underrated Ted Knight and the over the top Rodney Dangerfield complement the ensemble. Like most Harold Ramis films it doesn't take itself very seriously. It's not uptight and you shouldn't be when you watch it. Final Score 9.1/10

Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield, Chevy Chase (at his best, except Fletch) - ridiculously funny.

Rating: 7/10

Decent comedy with some fun characters (Chevy Chase and Bill Murray, especially) and several good lines. But ultimately, this is a bit of an overrated comedy.

Did not hold up well
(watched in 2016... but loved Caddyshack in the early '80s)

Caddyshack is to funny throughout, and has its downers, but the funny parts really do works well, and the cast just shines, making it a unforgettable classic of slapstick comedy.

Chevy, Rodney, and Bill impress and make you laugh so hard. Cindy Morgan...

Goofy and charming, with witty one-liners and a cast at the top of their game.
