Product Description

Happy Gilmore (Adam Sandler) is a would-be hockey star who finds his slap shot better employed on the fairway. When his granny loses her house to the IRS, Happy determines to buy it back by winning the pro golf tour. His temper and antics soon make him golf's media darling, but a bitter rival (Christopher McDonald) has a few tricks in store.


Adam Sandler fans are sure to enjoy this no-brainer comedy, but everyone else is strongly advised to proceed with caution. Before scoring a more enjoyable hit with his 1998 comedy The Wedding Singer, the former Saturday Night Live goofball played Happy Gilmore, a hot-tempered guy whose dreams of hockey stardom elude him. But when he discovers his gift for driving golf balls hundreds of yards, he joins a pro tour to win the prize money needed to rescue his beloved grandma's home from repossession. The trouble is, Happy's not so happy. He's got a temper that frequently flares on the golf course (he even dukes it out with celebrity golfer Bob Barker), but a retired golf pro (Carl Weathers) and a compassionate publicist (Julie Bowen) help him to perfect his putting game and adjust his confrontational attitude. How much you enjoy this lunacy depends on your tolerance for Sandler's loudmouthed schtick and a shocking number of blatant product-placement endorsements, but if you're looking for broad comedy you've come to the right tee-off spot. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars A warm glass of shut the hell up... 29 Aug 2014
Happy's grandmother's house is foreclosed because of her failure to pay her taxes, and she's placed in a retirement home.

He must try and find a way to make some money. Whilst at a driving range, he discovers that he can hit a golf ball a hundred feet, so the range pro, convinces him to try being a pro golfer.

Reluctant at first, because he considers himself a hockey player, but when he learns he can make a lot of money, he gives it a try and surprisingly, in addition to his amazing driving ability, his personality has made him popular the crowd.

Shooter McGavin, the tournament leader, thinks that Happy's an embarrassment and is jealous that he is stealing his spotlight, so tries to get him thrown out.....

This is the film that did it for Sandler. The Wedding Singer is a brilliant movie, but this is the one that got Hollywood to notice the man. Here is the film that started it all, and Sandler knows this, that's why his production company is partially named after his career defining movie.

But the main difference with his this, and films up to Big Daddy, and his later works, is that in this film, there are not as many random out of the blue moments like there are in Grown Ups, and Zohan, and this makes the film a little more coherent.

That's not to say I don't like his later movies, I think the man is a funny writer, it's just that this stands the test of time, and can be watched over and over,without becoming too monotonous.

It's consistently funny, Sandler is endearing enough to carry the whole movie, and Macdonald is excellent as the paranoid shooter.

But we still have the random things here. Ben Stiller is wonderful as the orderly, and of course Weathers, who sends himself up something rotten.

Its a fun film, always guaranteed to raise a smile.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS THE FUNNIEST FILM EVER!!! 4 Jun 2007
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy Gilmore - Sandler at his very best! 2 Mar 2005
By A Customer
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The film that made me a Sandler fan 4 Aug 2011
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.

This makes me laugh right from the start. If you need a pick me up this film should do it. Happy is a hockey player who somehow finds he is rather good at golf with his somewhat unusual style and clubs. He needs money to pay his grandmothers tax bill, meets good and bad characters along the way. It has a happy ending for grandma, the baddie gets his reward and Happy gets the girl. What more could you wish for!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nearly A Hole In One. 10 May 2007
By Jay
In what is Adam Sandlers best work to date, the hopeless hockey failure Happy Gilmore must join the Professional Golfers Tour to help his Grandmother with her finances.

As a golfer myself I can say that the antics pulled in this golf caper are are riot! I have seen the film probably over 50 times but each time I laugh as if it were my first time viewing it.

From Carl Weathers and his wooden hand, to Happy teaming up with Bob Barker, this movie keep you laughing the whole way through.
