HAPPY GILMORE (1996 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Happy Gilmore—while not Adam Sandler’s best film—is well written and well-acted. The film is worth adding to the home library. It uses the talents of Cristopher McDonald, Francis Bay, Julie Bowen, Carl Weathers, Bob Barker, Richard Kiel, Kevin Nealon, Will Sasso, and tucks in Ben Stiller as Hal, an orderly in a nursing home.

Storyline

Hockey-player Happy Gilmore (Adam Sandler) finds his true sport in golf.
