What Makes It So Great?
While many Adam Sandler movies are touted for being too silly and over the top, Happy Gilmore finds the perfect balance between stupidity and a good story. The idea of the story is perfect as it sets up a realistic situation that sees a hockey player become a golfer. Happy Gilmore's story, makes perfect sense and allows the comedic elements to filter in from the side. With a good villain and a great main character, Happy Gilmore stands as one of the smartest comedy films of all time.
Why Would A Teen Enjoy?
For years me and my friends have found jokes in this movie time and time again. Ny teen would find everything about Happy Gilmore as funny. From the dialogue to the insane actions of Happy, the film does not miss a beat, and it will hit the right spots for just about every teen.
Where Does This Film Rank?
As far as oscars go, Happy Gilmore was never intended to win academy awards. However, it was intended to stand as a historic comedic achievement, and it very much did. As only Adam Sandler's 2nd mainstream movie, Happy Gilmore helped launch the brilliant career of Sandler. Many see Happy Gilmore as Sandler's best film, and I certainly agree with that.
