This review is from: Caddyshack [DVD]  (DVD)
I first saw this back in the early 80s and although it was indisputably crude and juvenile it appealed to my own crude, juvenile sense of humour. It sort of dropped off my radar for years until I got talking to a work mate about films we remembered from childhood and Caddyshack cropped up as a shared highlight. We then spent the next few weeks trying to drop in quotes from the movie into conversations and memos.
So it's difficult for me to be objective about this one. I can see that the jokes are mostly lame, the subplots are predictable and the acting rarely rises above the adequate. But I still can't help laughing like a drain whenever I watch it.
It's probably one for nostalgists who remember when we thought Chevy Chase was funny and when Bill Murray made comedies. I do understand how this film will leave a lot of people stone faced - so maybe it's a rent before you try. But, for the rest of us this is a guilty pleasure.
