Movie Summary

Director:
Harold Ramis
Released:
1980
Rating:
R

Caddyshack is the Snobs vs. Slobs story of Danny Noonan (Michael O'Keefe), Ty Webb (Chevy Chase), Carl Spackler (Bill Murray), Lacey Underall (Cindy Morgan), and the rest of Bushwood Country Club's employees and members. Released in 1980, Caddyshack was Harold Ramis' first directing effort. Over the years, it has become the standard for ensemble comedies, aging perfectly and remaining one of the worldâ's most quoted films. Danny Noonan is the oldest child in a large, poor family. There's no way his parents can pay for college, they only way he can go is if he can convince the club's most prominent (and snobby) member, Judge Smails (Ted Knight), to give him the Caddy Scholarship. To that end, Danny crosses over into the world of the snobs, turning his back on his girlfriend, Maggie, and hooking up with rich girl Lacey Underall in the process. In the meantime, new member and total slob, Al Czervik (Rodney Dangerfield) challenges Judge Smails to a game of golf for control of the club. Will Danny forget his slob roots and fight for the snobs?

    Caddyshack never finds a consistent comic note of its own, but it plays host to all sorts of approaches from its stars, who sometimes hardly seem to be occupying the same movie.
