Comical goings on at an exclusive golf club. All the members are wealthy and eccentric, and all the staff are poor and slightly less eccentric. The main character is 'Danny'; he's a caddy who will do almost anything to raise money to go to college. There are many subplots, including the assistant green keeper's pursuit of a cute (obviously stuffed) gopher.Written by
Harold Ramis had only played golf twice in his life before directing the film, and recalled that he nailed someone in the nether regions with one of his first practice shots taken to prepare for the film. Naturally, he made use of this tale by contributing the scene where Judge Smails gets hit in the crotch with an errant golf ball. See more »
The initial golfing bet is for $20,000 each for the 4 players, which totals $80,000. However the black man Smoke Porterhouse tells someone it's a game for $100,000. See more »

Amusing and often times very funny story is set around a golf course with a bunch of untimly characters and gags this one is certainly a classic. It features Chevey Chase as an absant minded golf pro, Bill Murray as a perverse greens keeper, Rodney Dangerfield as a rich wise cracking golf and the cutest dancing goffer you will ever see. All three leads are at the top of their game and couldn't be much more funny. There really isn't much of a story here it is pretty much just the viewer follwing around all the different characters and watching their wacky actions unfold. This movie is contains many laugh out loud situations due to our three great leads and even though some of the jokes may miss the target once in a while the film makers keep them coming at a steady pace so that the viewer never gets bored. This is the way comedy should be made these days with movies today featuring sex with pies, loads of fart jokes and stupid caracters that we don't really care about this movie, although over 20 years old is a breath of fresh air.
