5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Funniest Comedies of All Time!, January 4, 2000
This review is from: Caddyshack - 19th Anniversary Edition [VHS] (VHS Tape)
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!

i agree - a very funny movie!

i bought the widescreen DVD version and was waiting to see 2 scenes that were not there - when Chevy plays through his own fancy house and when Rodney uses his laser putter that lays out a grid on the green.

why would anyone cut these scenes when putting this classic on a DVD?

i agree - whoever wrote these negative reviews has no sense of humor

this is comedy at its best, along with such others as vacation, animal house, blues brothers, ghostbusters

Sam, why can't the move both be funny and be low-brow? Just because a movie is funny, does not mean it intellectually sophisticated or high-brow (this flick is neither). In the same vein, just because a movie is a no-brainer and low-brow does not mean it is not funny. In fact, many of the funniest and most financially successful comedies have been low-brow. So, the critics do have half a clue, maybe even a full clue. They claim the movie is low-brow (check) and many critics claim the movie is funny (also check). Sounds good to me.
