I've watched it twice in the last two weeks after not seeing it for years! Such a classic, despite the horrible clothes and antiquated golf equipment its humour is timeless. The second one is absolute crap compared to the original. Ty Webb and Carl make the movie great. Spaulding cracks me up too.

The genius is in the stupidity, and how it is delivered. I agree. On the surface, it is totally idiotic. But watch it and accept it, it's fucking hilarious. Having Rodney in your cast pretty much assures a hit, don't you know.

Caddyshack ranks as one of my favorite movies of all time.
One of the best parts of the whole movie is the fact that a great 95% of the entire movie was ad-libbed....and that really gives me a great appreciation for it. There apparently *was* a script then after the second or third day of filming, most of the script was tossed out and mostly Murray, Dangerfield, and Chase went off of the screen treatment as just basically a guideline for what they should be saying.
The scene between Murray and Chase wasn't even in the treatment or the original script and was *entirely* ad libbed because it was during the last week of filming that the directors and cast realized that their two biggest supporting characters had no interaction whatsoever. So they filmed this scene late one night and from what I can remember by reading the interviews, it was done in just a matter of a two or three hours, which, if you know anything about the process of movie making, is pretty damn amazing and shows the true comedic talent of those two.
A great deal of Murray's lines...such as Augusta National Champion, and You're a Tramp! were entirely ad libbed by him when the camera starting rolling but kept in the film.
Eternal darkness we all should dread. It's hard to party when you're dead.

"So I jump ship to Tibet and I get on a course to be a looper, you know, caddy, jock. And I tell them that I'm a pro jock. So guess who they pair me up with? The Dalai Lama himself, 12th son of the Lama, flowing robes, elegance. Big hitter, the Lama, and he whacks a drive into a 10,000 foot crevasse. You know what he says? Gunga, galunga....gunga, gunga, galunga. So we're walking off 18, and he's walking off like he's gonna, you know, stiff me, and so I'm like 'Hey, Lama, how about a little something, ya know, for the effort?' And he says 'There is no money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total conciousness.' So I got that going for me, which is nice."
And of course, the quote for the a.netters:

I can't think of a more quoted, more repeatedly watchable movie than Caddyshack. It is one of those movies that if I'm channel surfing during commercials and I stumble across it, it becomes the priority to watch it. Love live Carl Spacker and gang!

No no no 9VSPO!
Different kind of humor...while I love Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Caddyshack outlaughs, outstupifies and outperforms it. The late 70s-early 80s comedies are hard to match (Caddyshack, Stripes, Animal House, Blues Brothers, etc.)...
Thanks for nuttin!

One of the greatest comedies of all time. Right up there with Airplane! for its just absolutely retarded and moronic sense of humor. The comedic geniuses in that movie are incredible. Too bad Bill Murray has lost his sense of humor these days.
I ignored every other movie on a VS flight to LHR one night and laughed my way through dinner watching Caddyshack. Thank goodness I was in the second UC cabin and not the quiet one in the front of the plane.

Caddyshack wouldn't have been a great comedy without Rodney. While Chevy and Bill are top of their game in the movie, it is Rodney who makes the film with his classic lines (My favorite is: Hey everybody, we're all gonna get laid. . But the gopher steals the movie.
I smell varmint poontang. And the only good varmint poontang is dead varmint poontang, I think.
As for the sequel, I'm guessing Chevy Chase did it for the paycheck. Jackie Mason is no Rodney Dangerfield. And Robert Stack is no Ted Knight.

Quoting STLGph (Reply 22): I love Cannonball Run. I watched it two nights ago. It's just an insane comedy. I always love trying to explain the purpose of it to people who have never seen it before...I just don't think you can.
I can relate. I was dating a German girl and tried to explain Hogan's Heros to her. Oddly enough, it didn't work out.

Quoting YeahitsK (Reply 16): I like to quote Spaulding when I hit a bad one... DOUBLE TURDS!
Also, love Mr. and Mrs. Van de Camp. Aww hon, that's a peach!!
Golly Gee, I'm HOT today ... then the ball goes five feet and hits a tree. Love it!!
I actually caddied for a couple of resort courses here in Vegas and I can't tell you how many times I would reference this scene. Although I thought the old couples' names were Mr. and Mrs. Havencamp, though I can see how you would've heard Van de Camp. Don't forget Mrs. Havencamp saying "Weeeeeee!" as she hits it into the water.
"It's easy to grin, when you're ship comes in, and you've got the market beat. But a man worthwhile still has a smile when his shorts are too tight in the seat! Ha ha, aha ahahahah."
"Golf courses and cemeteries - the two biggest wastes of land known to mankind."
"I've had better food at the ballgame!"
"Oh you're a real looker, I'll bet you were a real something before electricity!"
And the scene where the caddies all bet on whether Smail's grandson picks/eats his booger is priceless.
