    Product Description

    He's the heir to the Madison Hotel millions but in order to win his father's respect and his Fortune 500 company, grown-up, goof-off Billy must repeat all 12 grades of school - in just 24 weeks! Comedy superstar Adam Sandler stars with beautiful Bridgette Wilson in this laugh-a-minute hit where the subject is always fun! Featuring songs by Electric Light Orchestra, The Jackson 5, The cars, Culture Club, The Ramones ans Styx.

    Amazon.com

    For Adam Sandler fans only, this dopey comedy features the former Saturday Night Live star as an overindulged rich guy whose father insists he repeat grades 1 through 12 before taking over the family business. The scenario is perfect for Sandler's infantile leanings (which he has fortunately outgrown in more recent movies), and for the most part the jokes about being too old and too big for the experiment are obvious. Chris Farley and Steve Buscemi turn up in uncredited cameo appearances, but otherwise the film is pretty dismissible, except for those diehards who can't get enough of Sandler. --Tom Keogh

    5.0 out of 5 stars Billy Madison is simply the greatest film of all time. August 18, 2000
    Format:VHS Tape
    I've read every review of this movie quite thoroughly and I've noticed a common thread in each and every "bad" review given. All of Billy Madison's detractors say that the movie is stupid and childish. I suggest that these people stick to their "The English Patient", and leave this wonderful film alone. The movie's 'stupidity' as critics call it, is actually the essence of it's true genius. Billy Madison is ridiculous, illogical, and downright bizarre, but it is these elements that make this movie the most entertaining film I have ever seen. Sure, there are great, epic, emotional dramas that have the power to move you to tears, and these are exceptional films. Films can also be fun however, and Billy Madison is the most fun you will ever have from simply watching a movie. Doesn't this also make a film great? Why do critics always dismiss films such as these as "immature"? Billy Madison won't make you cry, but Gone With the Wind sure isn't gonna make you laugh either. Both emotions are important, and a film that makes you laugh uncontrollably (which I guarantee this film will) is just as effective as one that makes you weep, or feel warm and fuzzy inside. As far as Sandler's acting chops are concerned, he certainly wouldn't be considered a 'thespian', but his natural appeal is so exceptionally strong that it can carry a movie - he is just that likeable. The man speaks pure gibberish and I laugh my fool head off, this is a talent that no other actor can match. I don't recommend that you see Billy Madison, I insist that you buy it, right now, from Amazon.com. The American Film Institute declared Orson Welles' "Citizen Kane" as the greatest film of all time? Just one question: where is the imaginary penguin, Mr. Welles? Where is the imaginary penguin? Peace, I'm outta here!

    5.0 out of 5 stars I KNOW IT'S DUMB! I KNOW! BUT I LOVE IT ANYWAY! April 4, 2000
    By Clompy
    Format:DVD
    This is still my favorite of all of Adam Sandler's filmefforts. WHY, you ask? Because of it's LACK of a script. This moviedoesn't even try to create substance, character or plot! All it is, is Adam Sandler acting so lovably loopy that you can't help but crack a smile or let out a large guffaw. Sandler's other films (that I DIDN'T like) like "The Waterboy" and "Big Daddy" tried to be sort of serious in some parts and tried to be witty when in fact it wasn't.
    "Billy Madison" is all about STUPIDITY. Heck, it's about a 28 year old guy going through grade school! Whatta ya expect, ya know! There are classically hysterical moments:
    "O'Doyle rules! " "Shampoo is better! I help clean the hair! Conditioner is better! I make the hair silky and smooth! Oh, really fool! Really! . . .Stop looking at me swan." "No, I will not make out with you! "
    And of course, who could forget Steve Buscemi putting on lipstick? Or the late great Chris Farley making out with a penguin. Or those stupid graduation parties! It's so stupid but sooooo funny for some reason. Watch this comedy today. END

    4.0 out of 5 stars Adam Sandler at his most inane and comical best August 12, 2003
    Format:DVD
    Billy Madison is the most hilariously inane character that Adam Sandler has portrayed, and while I don't consider this one of Sandler's best movies, it is easily one of his funniest. A lot of the comedy seems to have come directly from the set of Saturday Night Live; it was funny there, and it is funny here. Even a few SNL buddies, namely Norm MacDonald and the late Chris Farley, turn up to revel in the infectiously entertaining silliness. Sandler plays Billy Madison (of course), the son of a filthy rich hotel magnate. He spends all of his time lazing around the pool, drinking copious amounts of alcohol, and pawing over nudie mags; his only hobby seems to be lighting bags of poo on fire on the front porch of people he doesn't particularly like. Even after his infantile behavior at a big business meeting, he is shocked to hear his father say he is giving the company to a particularly annoying executive rather than turning it over to him. He swears he will do anything, even go back to school and actually earn the diploma his father bought for him, to make his father change his mind. Monday morning finds him camped out in a first grade classroom, where he actually fits in pretty well. Every two weeks, he is tested and bumped up another grade. Billy really enjoys his time in third grade because he makes some good friends among the children and laps the elixir of knowledge from the fountain of the gorgeous Veronica Vaughn (Bridgette Wilson). As time goes by, Eric starts sweating and sets Billy up for a fall. Only the disciplinarian love of Veronica and the support of his new childhood friends can pick Billy up and get him back in the game.
    I think Sandler is a comic genius, and few comedians could make such a silly, silly movie a real success.

    A Kid's Review
    Format:VHS Tape
    This movie is so FUNNY! I've seen it at least 1,000,000 times and I still laugh until I can't breathe every time I watch it. (Well, I did the first time anyway. I was just exaggerating) If anyone has ever so much as chuckled by Adam Sandler's material, you have to see this. I saw it in the TV guide a few years ago and I decided to watch it. I ended up taping it. AND I AM GLAD I DID! The TV version was clean with the bad words replaced with similar clean ones and I have always wondered what he really says. Anyhoo, there's so many parts that make this movie worth watching! It is full of slapstick comedy. Such as...

    1) Billy and his goofball friends leaving a bag of burning dog poop on the old man's porch ("Judas Prist, Barbara, it's one of these flaming bags again!")

    2) The gay Principal Anderson a.k.a. the Revolting Blob

    3) The antics of Billy and his friends when they're drunk like Billy chasing the invisible penguin on his golf kart at the beginning of the movie

    4) What Billy does at school. The part with the lunchlady was hilarious. ("Have some more shloppy Joe's!") First grade was the funniest school segment. I like O'doul and his family. They're hilarious when they're always yelling, "O'doul rules!" And, of course, you couldn't make it funnier unless the dad swerves on a sharp turn, causing the car to spin off a cliff, and exploding on impact.

    I hope you enjoyed my review...Now if you'll just kindly click 'Yes' under the question below: 'Did you find this review helpful?' :) Thanks for reading this. Now, remember, if you have a bunch of friends over at your house and you're in the mood for some really good comedy, FOR GOD'S SAKE, rent it already!!! Now if you'll excuse me, I need to catch that darn penguin...:0
