Product Description

The greenskeeper is about to start World War III against a gopher. The judge plays to win but his nubile niece has her mind set on scoring her own way. The playboy shoots perfect golf by pretending he is the ball. And the country-club loudmouth just doubled a $20,000 bet on a 10-foot putt. Insanity? No. Caddyshack. Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, Ted Knight and Bill Murray tee off for a side-splitting round of fairway foolishness that does for golf what Animal House did for college fraternities and Police Academy did for law enforcement. Chase's laid-back delivery has kept audiences of Saturday Night Live and movie hits National Lampoon's Vacation, Fletch and Spies Like Us in the aisles for years. Sharing his wisdom with a caddy or his bed with debutante Lacey Underall, he never misses a shot. Rodney Dangerfield is well, Rodney Dangerfield. Even when he's off camera, he's on. And fans that have made Easy Money and Back to School box-office hits like him just fine. Knight-possessor of the best slow burn since Laurel and Hardy fusses, fumes and finesses his way through his role as Bushwood Country Club's one-man Legion of Decency. Murray's hole-in-the-head assistant greenskeeper is straight out of Looney Tunes. Murray, who brought the house down in Meatballs, Stripes and Ghostbusters, is funny even when he talks to himself. In Caddyshack, the term "golf nut" takes on a deranged double meaning and the laughs are par for the course!

A no-brainer that has become a low-brow classic, this 1980 comedy makes anarchy the rule of the day, unleashing the antics of Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield, Ted Knight, and Chevy Chase. Caddyshack is about the scheme of a vulgar land developer (Dangerfield) who wants to build condominiums on the site of a ritzy country club. Director Harold Ramis (who later reunited with Murray to make Groundhog Day) is content to let the comedy follow a variety of wacky detours, most notably Murray's maniacal war with a gopher that has been digging up the golf course. Dangerfield ultimately steals the show, firing off a battery of one-liners, insults, and tasteless gags. Caddyshack is the kind of movie some people have been known to watch several times a year, reciting every line of dialogue like the followers of a bizarre comedic ritual. --Jeff Shannon

A welcome HD upgrade to the classic comedy. I don't think I need to go into the plot for Caddyshack and as such I'll review the Blu-ray disc itself. The new Blu-ray has a good HD transfer, it's not the cleanest print but I don't think it's going to get any better. The sound has also been remastered to a DTS Master Audio 5.1 lossless track which is nice and expands the sound stage from the previous mono only offerings. Although strangely the original mono track is missing.

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.

Y'know, I get rather disgusted when I read reviews of movies like Caddyshack which describe it as "no-brainer" and "low-brow" (see the Amazon.com review, for example). The fact is that many so-called critics really don't have a clue when it comes to comedy movies of this type. Disrespect and irreverence for the establishment has been a staple of comedy movies for years. Are the only good comedies the light-hearted drivel that the likes of Grant and Hepburn made in the 30's? Of course not!
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!

Hey, if you're reading this, you probably already know how hilarious Caddyshack is. I've gotta say I was disappointed when I purchased the 20th Anniversary DVD and it was the same thing as the 19th Anniversary VHS! I've never had the pleasure of seeing the TV version of this film, which from what I've read on other posts, has a lot of deleted footage. Why wasn't this footage included in the 20th DVD? In the trailer alone there's a bunch of scenes that aren't included in the film. How about including them? The bottom line is, while the film is great, we're starving for ALL the extra footage! I feel like I'm Spaulding and Warner Brothers is Judge Smails. "I want a hamburger, no...a cheeseburger, I want a hot dog, I want potato chips" -- "You'll get nothing and like it!" Give us more!

Of all the great comedy and spoof films of the early 1980's "Caddyshack" is beyond a doubt one of the more memorable flicks of the period that will probably never die with time. I would give this movie 5, or even 6 stars if I could, but I can't do it with the DVD version. This film is so poorly presented that it's a disgrace this was released in its present condition. The lettering and colours are washed out, the film is littered with scratches, specks of dirt and blotches that haven't been cleaned up, and it lacks 5.1 Dolby Digital. I agree with those who say the VHS version is superior because it is. Warner needs to clean up the film presentation, enhance the sound and release it in anamorphic/letterbox format in order to do this real justice. I hope they do this year on its 20th anniversary.

Most people can't get enough of this movie. I even own it on laserdisc. When I saw that there was a 20th anniversary edition availible on DVD, I had to have it.

I am sorely disappointed in the video transfer quality. It lookslike there was just a transfer from VHS to DVD. There doesn't seem to be any attempt to remaster the video and clear it up or improve the audio quality. I recently saw it on HDNet Movies and thought it looked much better.

DO buy this movie because it is an all time classic.

Don't buy this movie if you think that the 20th Anniversary edition is going to get you anything better.

Purchased this yesterday, Blu-ray, 2010 version, and the quality of the picture is extremely poor. They would have shot this with film, which can do better than 1080p, so either it was shot poorly to begin with or they don't care about the quality of this release. At a minimum, they should have perfected the audio levels, they are all over the place, super loud one scene, too quiet to hear conversations in the next scene. I have plenty of older movies on Blue-ray and they are ALL much better.

DO NOT BUY, if you are looking for this classic in Blu-ray, don't bother, stick with regular DVD or VHS. They should not have released this in the current condition. Five stars for the actual movie though, one of the best.

This is one of the funniest movies ever, and with a great soundtrack with the dancing gopher! It's too bad that Hollywood doesn't have the courage to make politically incorrect comedies like this and Blazing Saddles anymore. Seems many people are afraid of "the message" this might send to the children. Well, "Caddyshack" didn't make me a boorish and dim witted misogynist, and "Blazing Saddles" didn't make me a racist. Both movies do, however, let me laugh at these people and help me see how stupid the behavior really is. Have a laugh and stop taking yourself so seriously.
