Product Description

Billy Madison (Adam Sandler) has an easy life as heir to his millionaire father's hotel empire, until his dad decides to turn over the company to vice president Eric Gordon. Billy bets his father that if he goes back to school he can attain grades 1 to 12 in 24 weeks. No mean feat, as Billy has spent the ten years since he left high school lazing by the pool and chasing women. When he falls for his new teacher, however, he attends to his studies with renewed vigour.

From Amazon.co.uk

For Adam Sandler fans only, this dopey comedy features the former Saturday Night Live star as an overindulged rich guy whose father insists he repeat grades 1 through 12 before taking over the family business. The scenario is perfect for Sandler's infantile leanings (which he has fortunately outgrown in more recent movies), and for the most part the jokes about being too old and too big for the experiment are obvious. Chris Farley and Steve Buscemi turn up in uncredited cameo appearances, but otherwise the film is pretty dismissible, except for those diehards who can't get enough of Sandler. --Tom Keogh

To be honest, i think that Adam Sandler is definately comedies funniest actor that we have seen for several years, and lately i have become quite a big fan of his. While i don't think that Billy Madison is one of his best films, its still a laugh and a real treat for fans of Sandler himself, or just slapstick comedy fans in general.
Sandler plays a lazy, slightly retarded Billy Madison who is the son of a multi-millionaire hotel owner, and since leaving high school has spend his days getting drunk with two dimwits he calls friends, and setting fire to bags of dog poo that he leaves on the porches of neighbours that he doesn't really like very much. However when his father reveals that he is retairing and will be leaving the company to a very annoying executive, Billy decides to go back to school and prove that he can manage a business. The fact that after completing each grade he gets a huge party with a fair etc etc, probably helps him along the way. Third grade comes a big shock to Billy, as he not only makes a whole class of new friends, but also finds that he teacher is no other than the beautiful Bridgette Wilson, who plays Veronica Vaughn.
The nasty executive, Eric, starts to worry that maybe his dream of running the company is slipping through his grubby little fingers and so blackmails the principle to say that Billy payed him in order to compete each grade. When Billy's father finds out he is furious and is about to give the company to Eric when Billy challenges him to a 'educational decathalon' and the winner will win the company.

The is easily Adam Sandler's best movie. Its all about Adam Sandler going back to school to get his fathe's hotel company. On the way through all the grades he makes friends and even falls in love with a fit teacher. The funniest part of this movie is when a little kid is reading and Adam Sandler makes fun of him. This is a very funny movie so buy it to see it.

I first saw this movie on SKY and as most people at the time I didn't really know that much about Adam Sandler.The storyline is that Sandler plays Billy Maddison who is a heir to a multi-million dollar corporation,however he's a complete fool and is immature beyond his years.Because of this his father decideds to give the company to Eric,a nasty weasel of a executive who hates Billy's guts.Billy then decides to go back to school-from the first grade right up to graduation to prove to everyone that hes not an idiot ,beat Eric and become heir.Along the way Billy falls in love with his primary teacher,makes loads of new eight year old friends at school and also makes room to have fun with his 2 best friends,who also happen to be dropouts.I enjoyed the film from start to finish and it has many funny moments like his hallucinations of penquins and when he plays tag ball with the primary school kids.Theres also a funny moment when feeling guilty because of his bullying of other kids when he was younger he phones up one of his victims(Steve Buscemi) and apologies,not knowing that hes actually writing a kill list and applying make-up at the time!If you have a twisted sense of humour and enjoyed Sandler's earlier films like Happy Gilmour then make seeing this film a priorty.

It might not bother you much while watching this DVD, but there are scenes cut like:

-Eric himself catching fire while cooking
-Clown bleeding from the mouth after falling down
-Some swear words like Billy saying 'f-word'-dog to miss Lippy after she finishes reading the book

Also this DVD does NOT have subtitles or languages other than English.

I was into Sandler for years before anyone else caught on. Billy Madison is a classic and is the film that i quote the most in my everyday life. The makers of the film were obviously on drugs when they made it - and that is how i suggest it should be viewed

Format: DVD
Billy Madison is the most hilariously inane character that Adam Sandler has portrayed, and while I don't consider this one of Sandler's best movies, it is easily one of his funniest. A lot of the comedy seems to have come directly from the set of Saturday Night Live; it was funny there, and it is funny here. Even a few SNL buddies, namely Norm MacDonald and the late Chris Farley, turn up to revel in the infectiously entertaining silliness. Sandler plays Billy Madison (of course), the son of a filthy rich hotel magnate. He spends all of his time lazing around the pool, drinking copious amounts of alcohol, and pawing over nudie mags; his only hobby seems to be lighting bags of poo on fire on the front porch of people he doesn't particularly like. Even after his infantile behavior at a big business meeting, he is shocked to hear his father say he is giving the company to a particularly annoying executive rather than turning it over to him. He swears he will do anything, even go back to school and actually earn the diploma his father bought for him, to make his father change his mind. Monday morning finds him camped out in a first grade classroom, where he actually fits in pretty well. Every two weeks, he is tested and bumped up another grade. Billy really enjoys his time in third grade because he makes some good friends among the children and laps the elixir of knowledge from the fountain of the gorgeous Veronica Vaughn (Bridgette Wilson). As time goes by, Eric starts sweating and sets Billy up for a fall. Only the disciplinarian love of Veronica and the support of his new childhood friends can pick Billy up and get him back in the game.
I think Sandler is a comic genius, and few comedians could make such a silly, silly movie a real success.
