Skating-impaired hockey player Gilmore (Sandler) translates his slap shot into a 400-yard tee shot and joins the pro golf tour. His unique style brings a new, less refined breed of fan to the game and upsets the reigning tour hotshot (McDonald). Sandler improves on "Billy Madison," which isn't saying much. There's still plenty of ammo for his many detractors, but the laughs are more frequent and consistent. Replacing bathroom humor with abusive behavior, the mis-named Happy swears at or beats up about 90% of the supporting cast, including Bob Barker in a charity pro-am.

Happy Gilmore

Any Adam Sandler movie is awesome! I love Happy Gilmore! Whenever it is on tv, I always watch it. Happy used to be a hockey player. He now golfs using his hockey stick and has a very unique golf swing that every golfer has at least tried once. He tries to win money to get his grandmother's house back and has to battle with an evil golfer. His coach go his hand eaten by an alligator and then later from seeing it he dies, but I won't ruin it with all the details. This is a great movie for all ages.
