Happy Gilmore


Happy Gilmore Review

Adam Sandler is Adam Sandler... er, "Happy Gilmore," as bad boy hockey player cum scratch golfer in yet another turn on the "goofy kid down the block" role he continues to popularize. The biggest surprise is that Happy Gilmore packs some genuine laughs. It's hardly highbrow -- hell, it's barely lowbrow -- but the Bob Barker/Happy Gilmore fistfight and Ben Stiller's uncredited cameo as an evil nursing home manager make this one worth a lazy Sunday rental.
