Product Description

Product Description

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.

From Amazon.co.uk

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 the Blu-ray edition.

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.

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.

I love this film. If you haven't seen Little Nicky, watch this first! If you have, it will explain a few scenes in Little Nicky that you may not have got.
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!

This has to be the highlight of Adam Sandler's career; as well as a laugh out loud hilarious film this is the sum total of my golf knowledge also. I won't go into the storyline as it's fairly generic anyway and merely a platform for some of the best humour to ever come from over the pond. If you've never seen this film then it really is highly recommended, if you have seen it you alrady know how good it is

Essential viewing if you're into golf, or even if you've just got a sense of humour. You will never see golf in the same way again after this. Hilarious from start to finish, but with a bit of a heartwarming side too, and several memorable quotes which I'm trying to figure out how to slip into everyday conversation. Most of Adam Sandler's films are good, but this is definitely the best.

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!
