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??

    This review is for the DVD double bill of "Happy Gilmore" and "Billy Madison". This Universal twin-spin is a great combo for Sandler fans. The good news is the quality of picture and audio is excellent. I played both on a Sony Bluray player, and I was impressed. It's a real bargain, but there are no bonus features at all. No trailers, commentaries, or scene selection. I do think scene selection is nearly prerequisite for any DVD without exception. It would have been nice here. But, if one is willing to forsake bells and whistles, sit back and enjoy the movies! For me, "Happy Gilmore" is the better film. Adam seems more "into it" and the supporting cast is great. Who can forget his celebrity golf pairing with Bob Barker? Adam's Mom is played by the "marble rye" lady from Seinfeld and she's terrific. Carl Weathers is splendid as mentor for Sandler, and the whole opus is "slobs vs. snobs" in the grand tradition of "Caddyshack" or most Marx Brothers tweaks of pompous authority. Nice job by Vern Lundquist as tournament announcer. He lends precious authenticity to the production. "Billy Madison" has its moments, but is not quite as consistent for me compared to "Happy Gilmore". "West Wing" fans will enjoy the great Bradley Whitford's three-years-prior-to-the-white house comedic work here. He is a darn good trouper as Sandler's prime antagonist and not afraid to clown it up. Darren McGavin shines as Adam 's rich Dad. Quite a lot of special support work here, including Norm MacDonald as one of Adam's pals in mischief, and a nice surprise contribution from another SNL alum, the great Chris Farley as the school bus driver. But what's with the penguin? Emblematic of the disjointed bent "Billy Madison" tends to take when it loses its focus.Read more ›

    These are some Adam Sandlers's best work --- if HIS comedy pulls YOUR chain.
    HIS humor sorta grows on ya... like fungus I guess. I've always enjoyed HIS
    comedy, but I'm a pretty immature 64-year-old; I still dress up for Halloween!
    (See my Profile Photo --- better yet --- see THIS dopey double-bill... before
    YOU are 64!)

    Adam Sandler is one of the funniest dudes on planet earth. Particularly over the last 20 years he's made quite a name for himself and put out some incredibly funny stuff. "Happy Gilmore" was arguably Sandler's most memorable performance, but for me in terms of sheer comedy my favorite was always "Billy Madison". I have loved this movie ever since it first came out. "Billy Madison" reminded me of my old childhood days when I'd enjoy the good times, hanging out with friends and not worrying or caring about anything else. No responsibilities just "dude" cool times. Billy was privileged and didn't grow up until much later on life when he needed to save his father's hotel. Everyone wishes they could be Billy Madison; NO WORK, FUN & ALL PLAY! The transfers on both films are great for DVD and if shown on the right TV I can't image the blu-ray would look much better. One disc with two films on the same side is included with the set. Upon playback you select the film you want to see with your remote.

    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.

    Happy: The Price is Wrong.... - One of my favorite segments in the movie. I loved watching it when I was wrong.
    Billy: Seeing Sandler play this character always brings a smile to my face. Being in business, my family and I love referring to the "business ethics" segment of the movie.

    I have watched Happy Gilmore about 20 times by now, and absolutely love it. Happy is awesome. Crazy behavior, club throwing, a bit of swearing, just all around good fun. You can't really go wrong with it.

    I watched Billy Madison for the first time yesterday, and... well. It is good, not as good as Happy Gilmore. I would recommend seeing it, but I feel like Adam Sandler went a little too "full retard" in this one. I enjoyed it regardless, and would definitely recommend this bundle.
