Movie Review by Zara
January 30th, 2007

The price is WRONG, b*tch!

Adam Sandler has made a career out of playing the stupid slacker. HAPPY GILMORE was his second outing as such, after BILLY MADISON. In this flick he plays a wanna be hockey player who sucks at ice skating but can slap home a puck like nobody's business.

Rejected over and over again for hockey and facing seeing his grandmother being evicted from her home and put into a torturous nursing home (Ben Stiller is rather funny as the lead nurse at the home), Happy sees an opportunity present itself in the form of playing golf.

See, he doesn't have to skate and when he goes for a long drive, it's one of the longest that the PGA has ever seen. When you add funny performances by Christopher McDonald, Carl Weathers and then throw in a scene where Happy gets his ass kicked by Bob Barker of The Price is Right fame and you've got a passable comedy that might not stick with you for very long, but at least made you giggle when you were under the influence. At least Sandler always knew to play to his strong suits.
