The extras are included are the Theatrical Trailer (480i) and "Caddyshack: The 19th Hole" (480i) is ported over from the previous 20th Anniversary DVD. But the real highlight is "Bio - Caddyshack: The Inside Story" (HD 1080i), this new documentary is very informative and goes for over 80mins.
Overall an HD excellent upgrade over the older 20th Anniversary DVD.
Caddyshack features fine performances from Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield, Chevy Chase, Ted Knight, and of course, the gopher. This motion picture is replete with sight gags and one-liners that to this day are repeated by afficianados of clever satire.
You don't have to be a lowbrow to like this movie, and just because you think it's funny doesn't mean there's something wrong with you. Caddyshack and Animal House withstand the test of time as two of the funniest comedies ever made...and that stands for a lot! The next time you find someone who thinks you're a reprobate for liking this movie, get Carl the Greenskeeper to cut his hamstring...he'll never play golf again!
I think the problem is Reitman's absence. Apparently Reitman was able to rein in actors; he certainly knew how to pace a film and give it tension. "Caddyshack" was Harold Ramis' first job in the director's chair, and it shows: the tension is slack, there is far too much improvisation, and there's a lack of focus both in narrative and theme. As far as the improv goes, one gets the sense that Chase, Dangerfield, and even Murray just sort of steamrolled Ramis. I'm sure it was a fun set to be on -- perhaps too much fun. (Ted Knight was deeply irritated by the chaos.) Consider Dangerfield's last line of dialogue that closes the curtain on the movie: "Everyone's gonna get l--d!" What does that even mean? Why? Because Michael O'Keefe won the golf match? Reitman -- and a later Harold Ramis -- wouldn't have permitted that to make the cut. Earlier, Chase and O'Keefe are on the green while playing the climactic match, and Chase starts doing a painfully unfunny bit about, well, who knows: "May! Make it! Make it!" or something like that. All improvised, based on an earlier bit about "Being the ball." A clearly irritated O'Keefe improvises back, "Take it easy." Why did this make the cut?Read more ›

Watched this again after so many years ago, and it always resounds with boat loads of comedy and genuine good times. I wish I was young again, that's how it makes me feel.Published 20 days ago by fenx1200
