Movie Review by Zara
April 8th, 2007

Murray at his finest

Bill Murray spent a great deal of his adult career living down what he'd gone through early on. I'm not from the generation that enjoyed Murray as Chevy Chase's replacement on SNL. I'm from the Mike Myers, Dana Carvey, David Spade and Adam Sandler generation.

But watching this movie reminds me a great deal as a younger HAPPY GILMORE. The comedy is lowbrow, the actors involved are encouraged to act as silly as possible and the lines are hilarious and instantly quotable. So why HAPPY GILMORE gets less credit than this flick is simply a question of saturation.

See, when CADDYSHACK was released, there were less comedies out in the market and when movies came out they stayed in the theaters for months, often being the only movie that a theater would show. So they stayed in people's minds for much longer than the movies of recent years. Those suffer from an oversaturated market and people buying DVDs instead of going to the theater.

I dare you to compare and look at these two movies with an unbiased (re: Non-nostalgic) eye and tell me that they're not just the same level of funny.

But hey, that's just me, I suppose.
