You're looking for a comedy on DVD. Let's see...
You don't want any comedy that's too sophisticated, like "Deconstructing Harry".
You don't want any comedy that's too insane, like "There's Something About Mary".
You JUST want to laugh.
I'm proud to say "Happy Gilmore" will make you scream with laughter, my friend. This is Adam Sandler's platinum hit, the best comedy of his career. It has the coveted Amazon.com five-star customer rating, a rare find indeed for the comedy lover, and reviewers call it "the best golf comedy since 'Caddyshack'". The movie stars Adam Sandler (Bulletproof, The Wedding Singer, Billy Madison) as Happy Gilmore, a short-fused hockey player who just realized he AGAIN didn't make the cut for his hockey team for the 10th time in a row. After taking out his raging anger on the coach, he life begins to spiral downwards when his girlfriend leaves him, and he realizes his grandmother's prized house built by his grandfather's bare hands if about to be seized by the IRS in 90 days due to her failure to pay taxes in over a decade. But when he discovers his monster hockey slapshot equals one hell of a talent in golf, he is talked into playing golf by a local retired golfer, Chubbs Peterson, for the money to reclaim his grandma's house. But not only is Happy not ready for golf, but the president of the Pro Tour, Doug Thompson, doesn't think golf is ready for Happy! Even his future golf enemy, Shooter McGavin, thinks he's making a mockery of golf with his very bad temper and his rambunctious behavior. But Happy is a hit with fans, so he's weaved himself through the loophole...for now.

This movie has got to be one of Adam Sandler's best. Notice how he always plays people with somewhat short fuses, though some not as violent as Happy Gilmore. But that's what makes this so funny. With an opening sequence in which he tries out for a hockey team for the tenth time and isn't accepted, and ends up beating up the coach, you know where this thing is headed. This movie is more than just a regular guy with an awesome shot due to hockey and an awful temper. But the movie is at it's best when Happy gets into a fight with 'The Price is Right' host Bob Barker and Bob wins! Anyone who hasn't seen this scene can't call themself an Adam Sandler fan! The basic story of this is pretty simple, it's about a guy who thinks he was born to play hockey, but still hasn't made a team. Then he meets a guy with a wooden hand who used to be a golf player, who tells him he should start. So he does, and he's got an awesome drive, but his putting stinks. And he has an arch enemy, a total a**hole named Shooter McGavin, who makes a total fool of himself many times but still thinks himself a pretty cool guy. This movie has got some pretty funny jokes and they're actually funny ( although somewhat juvenile, but what do you expect with Adam Sandler), and you can't help but love the hapless Happy. Overall you'll be pretty happy with a movie like 'Happy Gilmore'

Adam Sandler does it again with "Happy Gimore." By far his best movie, Adam plays a wanna be hockey player with a short-fuse. He gets in many fights in this movie, one with Bob Barker I might add.
The story starts out with the audience finding out that he has tried out for this Minnesota hockey team too many times and has never been accepted. He has had enough of this happening to him so he tries to stab someone with his skate.
He leaves the ice and later on a used to be golfer with a wooden hand noticed his ability and soon enough he is on the PGA tour. The only catch is, he doesn't want to be someone that wears tight clothing and volleyball hats while playing golf....he wants fans cheering, beach-balls being hit, and fans calling his name.
A rival golfer hates this and tries to get rid of him and that is where the story takes off. Sandler plays a great role and is very funny of course. Now, I don't know about you, but if you say you like comedy but haven't seen this one yet, you are definitely not a comedy fan.
Happy Gilmore has no faults and is laughter the whole way through. So if you feel like watching a movie with your buddies that you know you are gonna die laughing at, I would suggest buying this movie because you WILL watch it again and again.
Thanks for reading my review and be sure to get this movie!!

First of all, I am not an idiot. I appreciate great movies (my favorite is "How Green Was My Valley"), but this movie is simply terrific. While the cinematography leaves something to be desired, Mr. Sandler's jokes come fast and come funny. He has a more highly developed comedic form than most people give him credit for, and I cannot think of one joke in this film that misses. There is also a distinct pleasure one gets from watching the scorned Sandler beat up his hockey coach, screaming "That wasn't very nice!" - or observing Sandler take on an incensed Bob Barker. The other appeal of this movie is Sandler's underdog status; he is totally ignorant of the formalities of pro golf. He refuses to practice; he chooses a homeless man as his caddy; he calls for noise when teeing off; and he keeps his giant-sized winner's checks in the back seat of the car. As well, there are a few other good characters. Shooter, the best golfer on the tour, is the sleazy villian. Chubs, possibly the film's funniest character, is Sandler's teacher who admonishes him "Happy, stop acting like a damn fool." And of course, there is Sandler's former boss, an enormous man with a nail stuck in his head. What Sandler has shrewdly created here is one of comedy's most endearing and humorous characters. Unfortunately, critics, who would not laugh at anything unless in cynicism, shrugged it off as a mere frivolity. But, as the American people already know, Happy Gilmore is one of the funniest movies ever made.
