Why Is Caddyshack So Funny?

Sun Mar 19, 2006 3:02 pm

I mean it's a dumb movie, but it's up to the Baby Ruth scene and I'm laffing my ass off all over again. Haven't seen this in years.

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.

His string of one liners from the "dance" scene in Caddyshack hasn't been matched since IMO:

"this steak still has marks from where the jockey hit it"

"I'll bet you were something before electricity"

"I'll tell you know I now why tigers eat their young"

"last time I saw a mouth like that one it had a hook in it"

And on and on...

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.

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!

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.)...

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.

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.

For the golfers among us, the end of the movie seems to be innaccurate. They are playing match play, all square going to the 18th when Smails drains it with Billy Baroole (sp?) to put the pressure on Noonan. As we all know, Noonan drains it (with a little help), but wouldn't this just keep the match square and force it to go extra holes? Is it just me or am I missing something here?

Besides the great lines, characters, the right actors for the parts, this film is a comedy classic as much as anything as it mocks the older, more traditional rich (Ted Knight's, other characters) and the stuffy upper class lifestyle versus the 'new rich' (Rodney Dangerfield's characters and the workers at the club). Mocking the rich has been a common theme of many movies, plays and stories for centuries and this movie was a great take on it.
Rodney's character and his lines were so outragous and funny, they made the movie. Then you have Bill Murray, who actually worked at a golf course as a teenager and a pretty good golfer in real life, who's character was so original and crazy, it took this film to a classic level. The timing of when the movie came out was one when more 'adult' humor was being more accepted. Especially if you can see it in uncensored form, it is still a great movie if you need a laugh. It defenitely ranks up there with great modern (1960's onward) comedy films, like Blazing Saddles Young Frankenstein and Animal House.

You're partially correct. Two things are going on at the end. Noonan's putt does tie it up and they should proceed to another hole if it weren't for the second thing...Dangerfield ups the ante and says "Double or nothing the kid makes it" which in essence says screw the match...this putt is for everything.

Alright that makes sense, but Ty said to him before he steps up to the putt if you miss we lose. It is when he is standing over the putt that Rodney goes for the double or nothing. I guess I am just overanalyzing as usual...

Oh yeah! Have watched this movie more times than any other, have the DVD (love the Producer/Director commentary) and have the book about the real Cannonball, entitled appropriately enough, "Cannonball", by Brock Yates, who appears in the movie as the official starter at the hotel. Brilliant movie, and the sequel, though not as spectacular as the first, was actually tolerable (mainly for Sinatra).

I get the impression that I missed a movie worth seeing.

Yes you have. Go out and rent Caddyshack now!

Since you guys have already listed most of the classic lines, I'll go off the board:
"That must be the tea"

"Stripes" and "Cannonball Run", two other comedy classics.

Oh yeah! Have watched this movie more times than any other, have the DVD (love the Producer/Director commentary) and have the book about the real Cannonball, entitled appropriately enough, "Cannonball", by Brock Yates, who appears in the movie as the official starter at the hotel. Brilliant movie, and the sequel, though not as spectacular as the first, was actually tolerable (mainly for Sinatra).

They filmed a good part of the first film in the Atlanta area and in Georgia (Burt at the time had a house in the Atlanta area). The hotel is located on Glenwood Drive not too far off of I-285.

It seems Bill O'Reilly could have saved a lot of money in his sexual harassment settlement if he had just used the "quoting Caddyshack" defense.
