Happy Gilmore (1996)
|A rejected hockey player puts his skills to the golf course to save his grandmother's house.|
"...heady sight gags. Mike Clark, USA Today
"...genial...self-contained performance by Adam Sandler Richard Harrington, Washington Post
Editor's NoteA would-be hockey player who unfortunately can't skate transforms his slap-shot into a 400-yard golf drive in this slapstick comedy. Joining the pro tour to win enough money to get his grandma's house out of hock, this unsportsmanlike sportsman enrages the staid establishment with his on-course shenanigans.

I've alway enjoyed this movie despite the stupidity of some of it. You know a movie is a part of pop culture when signs at driving ranges still ask for "no happy gilmores". It may not be up there with caddyshack, but this movie is definately a classic of the genre.
