A significantly better effort than his production company's other namesake, Happy Gilmore found Adam Sandler the formula that would sustain his career for the next several decades. He's still angry, he's still a sexist, he still talks in funny little voices, but this time...he has a super power. Seriously, look through the vast majority of Adam Sandler's comedy repertoire. For some reason, the dude is always wielding a power of some sort. It's weird. He also casts himself this time as someone who has at least some sort of grounding factor, someone he loves (his Grandma), that lets this one appeal to an audience of men who are...let's say, 13-25, rather than 10-16 like Billy Madison. The laughs are still *very* sporadic, however, and the plot is treated with no care. I've noticed that this man tends to write just about every movie with a guy named Tim Herlihy, but honestly what the fuck is there to write? What are they doing?? Why are there two of them??

This and Billy Madison are Sandler's true classics. It's all downhill after this.

Yeah its stupid, immature, and like most sports comedy films but...it is pretty funny. With a funny villain, funny cameos, and a few guilty pleasure funny lines, Happy Gilmore is just a dumb yet pretty funny movie.

Sandler's best movie by far and will put you in a happy place. It will have some immaturity and slapstick humor, but a highly more tolerable amount than his other films.

Fantastic film, Bob Barker and Adam Sandler work off each other so well in this movie. It's a film I've grown up with and will continue to watch many many years from now.

I can imagine that if one didn't like Adam Sandler's brand of comedy, this movie would be torture. Even as a lower case "f" fan of Mr. Sandler's early nonsense Happy Gilmore is occasionally tedious. It is also pretty funny and that is all that matters.
The most interesting part of the movie was realizing that the female lead is in fact a very young Julie Bowen.

13/12/17 - Still a great family comedy. Good advertising and product placement by subway. I bought a sub half way through the movie.

Best Adam Sandler movie every

Happy Gilmore is a very funny and entertaining movie. The plot doesn't feel too formulaic but it does feel familiar enough to draw you in to the movie. Most of the jokes actually hit in this movie even if they were reused a couple of times throughout the movie. I can definitely say that Happy Gilmore is Adam Sandler's best movie. But if you don't like him or his type of humor, you won't have a whole lot of fun with this movie. A-

Adam Sandler is just such a hilarious actor he makes me laugh a lot for most of the movies I have seen a man I would say that he does great!

If you're only going to see one Adam Sandler movie, see this one! Best Comedy of all Time!

Although the humour relies on juvenile antics and crudity, it manages to work since it is pleasantly funny.

Not as funny or as fresh as Billy Madison, but is the better movie. Adam Sandler is fine here as Happy Gilmore, but there is just something missing.

Happy Gilmore is a fun movie, but it lacks on the comedy and general story.

I can't see how anyone could no like this film. Yeah it's incredibly stupid but it's very funny. It's features a great performance from Christopher McDonald as Shooter McGavin and Carl Weathers is great as Chubbs. I must've seen this movie 20 times and I still find it funny.
