Caddyshack (1980)

caddyshack_022Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, Bill Murray, Ted Knight and Michael O’Keefe starred in this classic comedy.

A louche golf professional (Chase) gets caught up in a feud between a snooty golf club president (Knight) and a vulgar millionaire (Dangerfield) who wants to buy the course for a new property development.

This hilarious movie had scene after scene of memorable moments; Dangerfield reprises his stand-up persona to gloriously vulgar effect, and Bill Murray nearly steals the show as a psychopathic groundsman maintaining a running battle with the club’s resident gophers.

Childish humour at its very best!

The least said about the ill-advised 1988 sequel the better. Suffice it to say that Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield, Ted Knight, Chevy Chase, and extremely funny dialogue were all conspicuous by their absence from the second film.
