Caddyshack (1980)


An exclusive golf course has to deal with a brash new member and a destructive dancing gopher. (IMDb)
With only the most minimal of plots, Caddyshack is more a series of comedy sketches set on a golf course than anything else, so when they don’t hit home, it feels pretty bland, but when they do, it’s quite entertaining–and with a great set of characters (Chase’s mellow Ty, Dangerfield’s obnoxious Al, Knight’s uppity Smails, Murray’s offbeat Carl) it usually is. Smails’ tantrums and Carl’s strange ramblings (his long scene with Ty is uproarious) are two particular standout aspects here.
6.5/10 (Alright)
