About the Movie

Adam Sandler stars as Happy Gilmore in the over-the-top comedy that scores a hole in one for hilarity. After his dream of stardom on the hockey ice melts, Happy Gilmore discovers he has a gift that could bring him glory on the greens. Trouble is, with his hot head and hard-hitting drives, Happy doesn’t just play golf…he destroys it. With the help of a retired golfer (Carl Weathers) and hot publicist (Julie Bowen), can Happy perfect his game and tame his temper to win the tournament prize money? With unforgettable appearances by Bob Barker, Christopher McDonald and Kevin Nealon, this comedy favorite features non-stop laughs that are par for the course!

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Happy's tantrums, which the movie pretends are liberating explosions of self-expression, aren't nearly maniacal enough to reach comic delirium. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: [A] one-joke Caddyshack for the blitzed and jaded. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The story has all the thickness of a well-trimmed green, but it's a decent excuse for some heady sight gags. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: It may smell awful from a distance, especially if you have low tolerance for lowbrow humor, but up close this yarn about an unlikely golf star is fairly painless. – Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 18, 2008

We Need to be able to buy this movie

why not

"The Price is Wrong *****"

This movie is really funny. Heck, anything staring Adam Sandler is funny! But this one by far is the funniest of his career. But as I quoted, the price should be the price of buying this movie!
