The comedy is never more than sudden, outsized explosions of violence from the otherwise placid, childlike Happy. But director Dugan maximizes the laughs through careful timing and counterpoint.

There are about three minutes of funny material in Happy Gilmore, and pretty much all of them are in the trailer.

From beginning to end, there's not a slow moment in "Happy Gilmore," the Tiger Woods of gleefully idiotic comedy.
