Happy Gilmore

Happy Gilmore ★★★★

Love these old sandler films. The comedy is a lot smarter than critics at the time gave it credit for in my opinion. Sure it has its dumb jokes but there’s a lot of nuance too, it’s balance. Sandler is a great comedic lead in this and the supportive cast is all great. It’s not pumped full of cameos which is nice too. My two favourite performances are Carl Weathers as Chubbs. Just super endearing and a great presence. And Christopher McDonald as Shooter. One of my favourite comedy villains. Just sip over the top evil about golf and scummy at all occasions. He’s such a lovable bad guy. 

Also this film is full of stealth commentary about golf being too of an uppity rich man’s sport and how non inclusive it is which is great because golf sucks
