Caddyshack

1980

Harold Ramis
Director

Ramshackle film of the chaos arising when the stuffy world of a Florida country club is invaded by by fun-loving Rodney Dangerfield and his pals. A surprise hit that led to a slew of "snob vs. slob" films in the 1980s and beyond, and remains one of the most quotable films of its day (especially if you are a golfer). It was also followed by a truly awful and pointless sequel, Caddyshack II, which is even worse than Grease 2!!

Interesting to note that the film started off more as a slice-of-life/coming-of-age film about caddies, a few tattered remnants of which remain on screen as Dangerfield, Chase and Murrays' cameos were enlarged and took over the film. All very funny, but no one seems to notice that Dangerfield's slovenly real estate developer, Chase's rich layabout with Zen pretensions, and their assorted cronies are just as obnoxious as the rich white establishment characters portayed by Ted Knight, etc.
