Product Description

Happy Gilmore Adam Sandler stars in this hilarious comedy that scores a hole in one for gut-busting wit and outrageous slapstick. Now in a new special edition with never-before-seen bonus features. Co-starring Christopher McDonald, Carl Weathers and Kevin Nealon. Billy Madison 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 in this laugh-a-minute hit. Now available in this new special edition with never-before-seen bonus features.

Happy Gilmore
Adam Sandler fans are sure to enjoy this no-brainer comedy, but everyone else is strongly advised to proceed with caution. Before scoring a more enjoyable hit with his 1998 comedy The Wedding Singer, the former Saturday Night Live goofball played Happy Gilmore, a hot-tempered guy whose dreams of hockey stardom elude him. But when he discovers his gift for driving golf balls hundreds of yards, he joins a pro tour to win the prize money needed to rescue his beloved grandma's home from IRS repossession. The trouble is, Happy's not so happy. He's got a temper that frequently flares on the golf course (he even dukes it out with celebrity golfer Bob Barker), but a retired golf pro (Carl Weathers) and a compassionate publicist (Julie Bowen) help him to perfect his putting game and adjust his confrontational attitude. How much you enjoy this lunacy depends on your tolerance for Sandler's loudmouthed schtick and a shocking number of blatant product-placement endorsements, but if you're looking for broad comedy you've come to the right teeoff spot. --Jeff Shannon
Billy Madison
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

    I was so excited when I heard about the Billy Madison/Happy Gilmore box set several months ago. I was hoping Universal would FINALLY be giving us the definitive versions of both flicks. The results are a mixed bag.

    The colors look great and the sound mixes are much improved, but both transfers are wrongly framed. They appear to have been zoomed in and cropped. If you've seen the original Billy Madison DVD and compare the two, you'll see lots of visual information cropped off the top and bottom of the picture. It looks awful and is really distracting. We're talking cutting off the heads of characters and scenery.

    The discs have some really grainy deleted scenes, most of which are second takes and jokes that didn't work. Why did Universal screw with these flicks??

    It is hard to believe that after Memorial Day that Sandler will have made 12 movies since these. Both of these movies are worth repeated watches; however, don't be fooled by the "new bonus features". The deleted scenes are far less produced that the final film, and the dialogue is almost impossible to hear in some scenes. The bloopers are not that funny either. That being said, these are still two fine movies. The main draw to me for the combo set was that I could get the widescreen version which I had previously been unable to find. If this is not important to you, you will probably be better off trying to find them separately. Finally, each movie on its own is worth 4 stars, but I knocked down my rating because of what I have mentioned above.

    In some respects, Adam Sandler has come a long way since Billy Madison, his first starring role after four years on Saturday Night Live. Recently, he has starred in Paul Thomas Anderson's Technicolor romantic comedy, Punch-Drunk Love and James L. Brook's comic drama, Spanglish. Happy Gilmore helped establish a strong fan base and demonstrated his bankability. He has never looked back since, cranking out one box office hit after another. Universal has gone back to the well and re-packaged his first two solo efforts in one set with re-mastered transfers and bonus material that fans will enjoy.

    On the Billy Madison DVD there are six deleted scenes totaling 33 minutes. There are lots of small bits and pieces that were rightfully trimmed (including one where Billy does nothing but scratch his ass).

    There are three minutes of outtakes. Nothing terribly exciting or all that funny.

    Also included are production notes.

    Finally, there is an audio commentary by the film's director, Tamra Davis. This is a pretty boring, uninvolving track as Davis points out a scene that she didn't direct and she knows this because she would never have picked the sweater that Sandler wears in the scene. Yawn.

    Sadly, the stronger of the two movies, Happy Gilmore, doesn't have as many extras. There are six deleted scenes that run 20 minutes, including the introduction of Happy's golf clubs and more footage of his golfing misadventures.

    There is also a five minute reel of outtakes which is a pretty funny collection of blown lines and goofs.

    Finally, there are production notes.

    The Billy Madison/Happy Gilmore Collection shows the beginnings of Adam Sandler's evolution as a box office heavyweight with his own particular brand of comedy. It is nice to finally have these films in their original aspect ratio and with a smattering of extras. Fans of both films will no doubt enjoy everything they have to offer.

    There was a time when Adam Sandler was unstoppable. After seeing the movie 'Big Daddy', I remember him achieving almost God-like status with anyone in the 12-25 age range. The guy was hilarious. I know most people are happy about the change that has come over his movies, but I hate it. It pains me to watch movies like 'Mr. Deeds', when he used to make movies like 'Billy Madison' & 'Happy Gilmore'. These two movies are Sandler doing what he does best....making people laugh.

    Of the two movies, 'Happy Gilmore' definately stands the test of time better. I won't go over the plot of the films, as you have probably already seen them multiple times. I just remember 'Billy Madison' being absolutely hilarious. I don't know if I have just gotten older and have different tastes, but the flick doesn't make me laugh as much as it used to. 'Happy Gilmore', however, remains the funniest golf movie ever made (in my opinion).

    The thing I like about these movies is they don't try to be more than what they are. You will be reciting lines from these two films to your friends for years. Scene after scene is just classic Sandler. They have classic characters and great cameos to go along with the hilarious writing. While I think the immature comedy of 'Billy Madison' feels dated just a bit, 'Happy Gilmore' retains a fresh feel that I feel is timeless. These are two classic, 'leave your brain at the door' comedies. So have some friends over, get a 12-pack and laugh away. Just don't go into it expecting 'Punch-Drunk Love'. Thank the heavens for that!

    Special Features: These are "special editions"? I know the original discs were completely bare-bones, but these are not what I would call "special editions". There are deleted scenes and outtakes for both films.
