Happy Gilmore is a failed ice hockey player who has to turn to gold when his beloved grandmother is in trouble with the IRS for not paying her taxes. She has to find the money in 90 days or the bank is going to take her house. Blessed with an unbelievable shot in ice hockey, but no other skills apart from fighting, Happy finds out he can transfer this skill to golf. Originally making money by entering long drive competitions he is picked up by the local golf pro, Chubbs Peterson, and makes it onto the pro tour. Can he make enough money, and get one over on the unlikeable but top golf player Shooter McGavin, and save his grandmothers' house?
I can still remember this film when I first watched it, well over 10 years ago, and I still love it as much now as I did then. If you like Adam Sandler films then you will definitely want to see this one and even if you don't you should still try it!. It is a very easy watching comedy, don't expect any major acting performances but you will get involved in the storyline and be willing on the star of the show. Added in our some excellent little cameos like Richard Kiel, Jaws from Bond, and Bob Barker.
It is a silly comedy, meant in the best possible way, and a great way to kill a couple of hours. The plot is fairly predictable but that won't stop you from getting involved. You will find yourself quoting all the lines and remembering this film for a long time. Or until the next day when you watch it all over again! This will have you laughing all the way through.
Summary: Perfect for wasting a couple of hours laughing yourself silly
