Caddyshack (1980)

 Rated R. Salty language abounds.

Famous sports comedies like The Longest Yard & Slap Shot have often failed to make us SATM’ers spend much time laughing out loud and—spoiler alert—Caddyshack did indeed fail us too. Comedy often does not age well, even when you’ve got funny dudes like Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield and Chevy Chase heading up the cast (and really stealing the focus away from the caddies). There are some high points in Harold Ramis’ first flick as a big-screen director, but this one is just a double bogey for us. Anyway, this year’s Masters has been postponed and you’re probably not going to be allowed to golf anywhere at all for a while, so escape into a fantasy world by listening to the 48th edition of Scoring At The Movies for a tidy little 37 minutes.
