Adam Sandler stars in this comedy directed by Dennis Dugan. Happy Gilmore (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 IRS 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 teeoff spot. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an alternate Blu-ray edition.See all Product Description

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.

The purpose of that story is why I enjoyed Happy Gilmore so much, it takes fun pot shots at the sport whilst daftly proclaiming that any dude can play in his own style. This is an absolutely no brain movie of course, with a plot as daft as it sounds - a failed/angry ice-hockey player takes up golf to earn money to save his granny's house from being repossessed - and of course he becomes a cause célèbre to the golfing curates.
Sandler has and always will be an acquired comedy taste, making this very much one for his fans only. And truth be told this is basic Sandler where he's shouty and sweary, and he certainly improved on a filmic level from this point on. So what you gonna do? I laughed a lot, but you see I'm a Sandler fan (though there are some films of his I positively hate), it cheered me up and sometimes that's all I want from one of his movies. 7/10
But, the two films are otherwise unrelated and not part of a series or anything so enjoy however you see fit.
Make no mistake, this film will crack you up!
