Caddyshack [Blu-ray] Great Movie A no-brainer that has become a low-brow classic, this 1980 comedy makes anarchy the rule of the day, unleashing the antics of Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield, Ted Knight, and Chevy Chase. Caddyshack is about the scheme of a vulgar land developer (Dangerfield) who wants to build condominiums on the site of a ritzy country club. Director Harold Ramis (who later reunited with Murray to make Groundhog Day) is content to let the comedy follow a variety of wacky detours, most notably Murrays maniacal war with a gopher that has been digging up the golf course. Dangerfield ultimately steals the show, firing off a battery of one-liners, insults, and tasteless gags. Caddyshack is the kind of movie some people have been known to watch several times a year, reciting every line of dialogue like the followers of a bizarre comedic ritual. --Jeff Shannon Like its predecessor, Caddyshack is crude, crass & sophomoric ---but so fun, and funny, that you dont care. The films cast is like one generation of comedic talent merged with another. Chevy Chase is at the peak of his sarcastic-irreverent self as Ty Webb, the golf club founders sometimes flippant, sometimes murky son. Bill Murray plays Carl, the greenskeeper whos seemingly one shy a full deck. But its Rodney Dangerfield who steals the movie as no-class contractor Al Czervik, who dresses in loud clothes, has a golf bag equipped with a beer tap, T.V., stereo & remote control for his drivers, and generally makes a nuisance of himself with sharp one- liners. And the late Ted Knight is the perfect comic foil/villain for Dangerfields antics as Judge Smails, a snobbish, combustible member with much wealth & influence. The films main plot has to do with Michael OKeefes down-on-his-luck caddy Danny trying to schmooze a caddy scholarship out of the abusive Smails. However, this is the impetus which draws all these characters into the plot which leads to a big showdown/high stakes golf game. But this is only half of the film as first- time director Harold Ramis & writers take pleasure in veering off on goofy subplots: Murrays Cinderella story golf game; a priest playing the best game of his life in the middle of a raging storm; Dangerfield disrupting the green with funny stories, rock music, and illegal betting; Chase & Murrays strange encounter when Chases ball slices into Murrays shed/home; the rowdy Caddy Day pool scene; Chases funny/inept romancing of Smails niece, Lacey Underall (what a name!); and, of course, Murrays demented battle with the dancing gopher whos destroying the green. Whether its a physical comedy bit by Chase or a good one-liner by Dangerfield that you missed the first time around, Caddyshack is the type of comedy that you can watch again & still have a great time!
