Caddyshack was actor Ted Knight’s last movie.
This was Harold Ramis’ first directing job.

The sound effects used for the gopher in the movie were actually vocalized by a dolphin.

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 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.
On the Blu-Ray release, they've added a 1-hour+ documentary on the making of the movie that gives a lot more insight/information than previous editons of the DVD. They interview more cast members (not the "stars" but more of the bit players) and you get a better feel for how the movie was originally setup to be something similar to Animal House where the caddies rebelled against the country club elite. The movie then slowly morphed into what was released as one-by-one they brought in the big talent. Bill Murray was brought in late and was only supposed to have one scene but he wound up stealing the show. Most of the "story" about the caddies was cut, IIRC they said they had about 4.5 hours of footage. The only down side of the documentary is there is a lot of repetition and you sometimes wonder if you've gone back to the start because you see thee same photos multiple times.
All-in-all I think the Blu-ray is a MUST HAVE just for the picture quality improvement over previous DVDs (which su-su-su-sucked). The documentary, although repetitive, is also nice to have.
