Oh, John, you have to view it for what it was—a farce.
Try watching it after you have a few Manhattans—the
world is a softer placeby far.
We need more smilers and fewer critics———Smile John, we
love ya, but loosen up a bit—you aren’t marking term papers now—–
It’s a far, far better place I go to——-
Caddy Shack is a terrible movie – a disgrace to Hollywood.
Chevy Chase does his usual wooden – the action stops while we all get ready to witness his sophmoric “joke” – anti-acting – anti-comedy bit. Rodney Dangerfield deserves no ones respect – he’s at his obnoxious worst in this movie. That guy from the Mary Tyler Moore show, forgot his name, is a one-trick pony. But, Bill Murray is brilliant, perhaps the best work he ever did. If only they would run just the clips of his scenes I’d happily watch it over and over every few weeks.
Blazing Saddles is one of the best western spoofs ever made. The casting of Clevon Little was the best move ever. Gene Wilder is great as the “recovering alcoholic” with a heart of gold and Harvey Corman is great as the Lt. Gov.
Mel is great in his cameo as the Gov, as printed on his tail coat.
Best line: Badges, ha, ha, ha, we don’t need no stinkin’ badges!
I would love to see that documentary, I always thought it had to be a blast making that movie.
They made a documentary about the making of this movie. Apparently some of the off screen antics made the movie look tame.
Loved the movie, especially Murray. Even liked the theme song a lot.
Caddy Shack is perhaps the second funniest movie ever made. Blazing Saddles was #1.
I see that my good friend Seafarer John is still wrong. Oddly enough, I still love him.
Dangerfield at his best
Bill Murray at his best
Chevy Chase and all the rest
John, you must have seen the original black and white version—or
you are gettin’ old and crotchy——and I can’t believe that of you.
Come on old salt—lighten up, relax ——-just remember
“It’s easy to grin when your ship has come in
And you’ve got the stock market beat
But the man worthwhile
Is the man who can smile
When his shorts are too tight in the seat”.
It’s good to see Bushie’s post on these forums again. I ‘m surprised he liked “Caddy Shack” because I’ve always admired his good taste in friends, BBQ, and booze – but then, I shouldn’t be so surprised, knowing his taste for bizarre politics…
