Editors Note
Note In order to gain control of his family's billion dollar business, a man must win a bet that he can go through grades 1-12 again in 6 months. The fact that he's a hopeless goof who failed all these grades the first time doesn't help.
Plot Summary
Summary Billy Madison, the dim-witted son of a millionaire, wastes his life guzzling beer and devising obscene pranks until his father threatens to leave him nothing. In order to earn his father's respect, Billy, who bribed his way through school, must pass all 12 grades in six months or see a sycophantic assistant get his father's fortune. Billy struggles with the aide and his own idiocy to make good in this gag-filled farce.
USA Today "...A healthy streak of sick humor that keeps you guessing..." 02/24/1995 p.5D
Variety "...A certain manic energy and no-holds-barred attitude....[With] bursts of sheer, irresistible idiocy..." 02/13/1995

ReviewSource San Francisco Examiner
Review Sandler, who starred in "Airheads," also appeared in "Mixed Nuts," where his part was so small that he was kind of watchable. Perhaps Sandler is someone who can only safely be taken in small, non-toxic doses. I kept asking myself if perhaps Danny Kaye was once as difficult to watch as Sandler, wondering if someday Sandler will harness his talents and develop into a charming, fabulous performer. In the old days, performers used to get good first and then go into movies. Today, performers get on television first. We're raising an entire generation of audience that doesn't know what good is

ReviewSource Washington Post
Review Sandler, the latest spawn of "Saturday Night Live," is a sweeter, milder version of Jim Carrey's uber doofus, just as "Billy Madison" is a more kid-friendly version of "Dumb and Dumber." And there's even a moral: "Yahoo for education," though the movie doesn't really put any muscle behind it. As one character tells Billy in the finale: "Everyone in this room is dumber for having listened to you."
