I saw this film at a mates birthday bash and MY GOD it was funny. Adam Sandler was brill and the gags were woven into the story with ease. The story was touching in parts, although sometimes the plot became slightly complicated. Still, an amazing film that would split your sides on any day of the week. Thoroughly reccommended.

This is a brilliant and side-splittingly good comedy. Adam Sandler pulls out yet another fantastic performance in this film and is helped by the other characters in the film. If your an Adam Sandler fan, this film's a must have for your collection and even if you're not passionate about him, you still have to see this film, for the experience at least.

One of Adams best films imo, and it is the first one i saw with him as the lead & love the most out of his long line of titles. Here he plays a washed up ice hockey wannabe who cant skate, but does have one helluva shot! Which comes in handy once he finds out his grandmother is going to lose her home to the IRS, he stumbles across a set of his grandfathers golf clubs & on a wager finds out he can hit the ball for 400+ yards. So off he trots to the driving range, charging people to try and out drive him. Fortune smiles upon him, as ex-pro golfer Chubbs (Carl Weathers -Predator) spots him, and offers to take him under his wing...but Happy isn't interested, he wants to play Ice Hockey....that is until he learns he can earn the big bucks!

So with training & taking part in tournaments, Happy tries to raise enough money to buy his Grandmas house back, which his grandfather built with his own two hands don't you know. During which he comes across competiton in the shape of yellow coat wannabe Shooter McGavin (Christopher McDonald -The Faculty) & love interest in Virginia Venit (Julie Bowen -Horrible Bosses). Keep an eye open for a young Ben Stiller who pops up in one of his early comedy roles before his own big break.

In conclusion, Happy Gilmore is a mixture of crazy, funny & very enjoyable comedy. Certainly one for those who appreciate Adam Sandler's style of comedy, hilarious. Highly Recommended.

It's an idea crazy enough to work. Take Adam Sandler and put him on the PGA tour, then sit back and wait for the hilarity to ensue. Happy Gilmore is one of the funniest films of the 1990s, and it is actually pretty uplifting to all of us who love to cheer for the underdog. There's nothing really intellectual about this film, and that's perfectly OK. We have our underdog, Happy Gilmore; his only dream in life is to be a professional hockey player, but the only thing he brings to the ice is a quick temper. Then we have the lovable grandmother put in a precarious situation-her house, which her own late husband built, has been seized by the government as a result of her not paying taxes for ten years. Happy accidentally discovers his ability to hit a golf ball very, very far, tries to rustle up some money off of bets at the local links, and almost accidentally, with the help of Chubbs, the local pro who saw his own promising golf career come to and end after an unfortunate encounter with an alligator, finds himself on the pro golf tour. Then there is the undeniably arrogant and completely unlikable bad guy, Shooter McGowan, whose place atop golf's elite is threatened by the young upstart Happy. Of course, this kind of story calls for a leading lady, as well, and the businesslike yet increasingly desirable tour media director Virginia Venit (Julie Bowen) fits the bill to a tee (I swear this pun was entirely unintentional).
Of course, the funniest parts of the movie take place on the golf course when the hockey-minded Happy takes out his early frustrations. At his first pro event, he launches into one profanity-laced (mostly bleeped) tirade after another, throwing clubs, having in-your-face discussions with his uncooperative golf balls, and generally being very ungolfer-like.

Would you jump off a cliff if I told you to? Yes? Good. No? Even better.
I'll bet that at this very moment you can pick this film up for under a tenner,maybe even under seven quid (for you tightwads out there) and I can say without any conviction that it will be the best ten or seven quid you will ever spend on a film. Your friends will think you a champion amongst film collectors, they will wonder how the survived without your comedy film selections for so long.
This film starts with Happy explaining how many dead end jobs he's gone through before discovering that his heart and soul belongs to Ice hockey, trouble is he's useless, all he has is a powerful shot. When he calls on his grandma, he discovers that she hasn't paid her taxes for ten years, and that she will be evicted from the home his grandfather built with his bare hands.
He finds his grandads golf clubs and realises he can hit the long ball. Then starts a career trying to make it in the professional golf circuit. I won't spoil the film but will add from the moment the film starts you will laugh from the very beginning to the end (promise) Please add this to your collection and enjoy a well made laugh a minute comedy.
(P.S Did I mean how cheap it is?)
