An anomaly of a film.

I've watched this film at least twice a year for a quarter of a century, and the last time I watched it, I realized something: this film is an anomaly. It shouldn't exist as a classic of comedic cinema yet, against all odds, it does. The story is pretty unimportant and there is almost nothing in the way of cogent plot or character development. Furthermore, it objectively fails as pretty much any formulaic type of comedy film. It fails as a romantic comedy, it fails as a coming of age story, and it fails as a class comedy despite its tagline of "the snobs against the slobs". However, like a McDonald's cheeseburger, it's greater than the sum of its parts. Taken individually, their ingredients are awful. But when you put them together, I don't know, it just works. I'm of the opinion that the reason that it remains a classic, and that countless golfers across the world chant "na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na- na-na-na" as they putt, is squarely on the shoulders of the brilliant performances of the cast. Some of the greatest comedic actors of that era, namely Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield, Ted Knight, and Chevy Chase, are firmly on their A Game here, and are absolutely sublime in this film. And with the help of the great Harold Ramis behind the camera, they raise these characters that should've been easily forgotten to some of the most quoted in the history of comedy. It shouldn't have worked, but it did. This film is not for everyone. If you aren't tickled by these performances, then there's very little to hold your interest. And I get that. But that's the way comedy works. It either hits you or it doesn't. And this film still makes me laugh out loud every single time. And I imagine that it probably always will.

Zany carry-ons at an exclusive golf course

RELEASED IN 1980 and directed by Harold Ramis, "Caddyshack" is a comedy about a high-class golf course that has to deal with a colorful new member (Rodney Dangerfield) and a destructive dancing gopher. Ted Knight and Chevy Chase play high society golfers while Bill Murray plays the half-mad assistant greenskeeper in charge of taking out the menacing gopher. Michael O'Keefe and Scott Colomby appear as young caddies while Cindy Morgan and Sarah Holcomb are featured in the female department.

This is a fun movie with a classic cast, a kinetic soundtrack (e.g. Kenny Loggins) and a can't-beat-it late 70s/early 80's ambiance. Both Dangerfield and Knight are over-the-top. They're more entertaining than funny though. Chase plays it more low-key while Murray is decidedly bizarre. Morgan shines in her most famous role, but don't expect much more on the female front. The gopher steals the show.

THE FILM RUNS 98 minutes and was shot in Florida (Davie, Boca Ratan, Fort Lauderdale & Key Biscayne) and the Los Angeles area (e.g. Woodland Hills Country Club). WRITERS: Brian Doyle-Murray, Ramis and Douglas Kenney.

GRADE: B/B- (6.5/10)

Really, you need a review on this?

OK, the first thing you should know is that everybody else on Earth has seen this movie. You should watch it, too, so aliens don't abduct you for being the anomalous human.

It's got going for it an awesome cast, some eye candy AND everybody gets some comedic respect. OK, not everybody.

This is a must see for movie buffs. I can watch this every 3 - 5 years.
