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'

Disappointed. Good if you are an Adam fan, but here you can really see the potential....unrealized. If they would have made it 10 years later it would be a classic - not because the material would be 'better' - but he got much funnier and his writers and directing partners got out all of the stuff that was unfunny later. He is really raw here as an actor - not necessarily as a performer - but at his best when doing his 'shtick' - but in this film, it just either isn't often enough or executed fully. Verne Lundquist is his golf commentator - Vern - our main college football broadcaster - who can and does do anything. Trademark good songs. An asteroids reference that foreshadows Pixels by 20 years - bit and pieces are here. An under-used Carl Weathers trying his best with a character not fully written. I think surprise hit/low budget allowed Adam and team to keep making movies - they may well have thought of this as a one-off when they made it - certainly not the beginning of one of the Box office's most reliable performers (which he his - you can look it up). I can see why he will never be a favorite of critics, but even at it's best when is comedy ever? We've all seen our best comedians make very, very bad movies - see Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, Will Ferrell, Billy Crystal, Robin Williams, Kevin Hart - but I'm not sure Adam has made a 'really bad ' movie - you either like him or you don't. Hell, Jill and Jack or the Zohan is probably as bad as it gets - but both have moments. He never really stops working or trying, and he avoids the worst gaffe you can have - never being funny - he is ALWAYS funny - at something. Eddie, Robin, Kevin, et. al. - can't make that claim. Ever seen Harlem Nights, Club Paradise, or Soul Plane? Wish I hadn't. It's a short movie - if you are a fan, watch it - if not, pass on this one.

This movie is a comedic classic. If you don't like Adam Sandler, you won't like Happy Gilmore. Period. This movie is pure Sandler: potty humor, slapstick, sarcasm, a few famous faces.

If you don't start quoting this movie after you've watched it, there's something seriously wrong with you. Happy Gilmore has some of the best movie quotes of all time. "You eat pieces of ____ for breakfast?" "Why don't you just go home?? That's your home! Are you too good for your home? Answer me!" And my all time favorite: "The price is wrong, _____!" How can you not love a fist-fight with Bob Barker?

Get this movie, watch it at least once a year, and quote generously as needed in life.
