What to know

critics consensus

Those who enjoy Adam Sandler's schtick will find plenty to love in this gleefully juvenile take on professional golf; those who don't, however, will find it unfunny and forgettable. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

All Happy Gilmore (Adam Sandler) has ever wanted is to be a professional hockey player. But he soon discovers he may actually have a talent for playing an entirely different sport: golf. When his grandmother (Frances Bay) learns she is about to lose her home, Happy joins a golf tournament to try and win enough money to buy it for her. With his powerful driving skills and foulmouthed attitude, Happy becomes an unlikely golf hero -- much to the chagrin of the well-mannered golf professionals.

    A good time, nothing more, nothing less.

    Not a fan of Adam Sandler at all, but this one was slightly more tolerable. I still didn't enjoy it. Too many unnecesarily crude jokes even though there are a few funny moments. Overall Rating: 43

    Juvenile humor at it's best? Sure. The concept of the comedy however, was already seen in Caddyshack. "Happy" Gilmore? More like Angry Gilmore, and that's the barely redeeming part of it for me.

    Adam Sandler at his fairly prime years. Looking back at most of his films, most of them received negative reviews, except for a few. This movie never gets old everytime I see it. Yes, Adam Sandler was goofy in this, but at least his performance was better than his recent performance. Alot of funny quotes are in this movie, but "The price is wrong bitch!" was the best one out of the whole movie in my opinion. The story might not be the best one ever told, but it was still decent. I rather like Sandler's Happy Gilmore years, instead of that Jack and Jill crap that he's been doing recently.
