Watching Happy Gilmore inspired to me to watch The Price Is Right for the first time.

However, I'm unsure if that counts as hopeless or not.

By the way, FSN showed that the Happy Gilmore swing actually does work, for exactly the reasons you thought it would - more deliverable momentum. They got Padraig Harrington to try it, and he was adding nearly 10% to his average distance, but it was far more inaccurate.

I've tried many times, but I slice the ball. Up and over the driving range net.

I actually thought Adam Sandler movies were good. . . when there were only a couple of them.

If you see only one Adam Sandler movie in your life and you don't have a bug up your butt, there should be no shame in thinking it's a decent comedy movie. The problem with Adam Sandler is that he only makes one movie.

I imagine that's why nobody does it. Incredible loss of accuracy for a chance at hitting it 10% further is not a great trade off

Happy Gilmore was the only Adam Sandler movie that didn't give me utter hopelessness and desolation.

Oh, come on. You have no sense of humor.

You can't tell me that this is not funny Full clip for your pleasure. I recommend this one

Happy Gilmore had two of the greatest bit actors in the business.

Bob Barker and the white haired caddy boy. Caddy boy went on to be a research scientist. He is doing amazing things in some field. Bob Barker went on to nail anyone with a wayward pussy.

I bet the club manufacturers love that movie. I can't imagine how many replacement clubs people bought after breaking their old clubs trying to emulate the movie.

Hey I'm the first to jump on crappy movies but I liked Happy Gilmore

50 First Dates wasn't horrible

I like the The Wedding Singer too

Billy Madison was the highpoint for me. Everything else was either terrible or tolerable.
 
2012-06-23 10:29:57 PM  

vodka: I like the The Wedding Singer too


Who doesn't like the Wedding Singer? That movie is awesome.
 
2012-06-23 10:30:59 PM  

Mega Steve: I liked Little Nicky. There. I said it


Well, me too.

Honestly, I liked both Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison, the rest is pretty awful...

/Eh, Wedding Singer had a nice soundtrack...

I'm only 20 years older...been playing 20 years longer....and my handicap is 4 shots worse.

I'm hoping to be scratch by my 28th birthday.

He has made other good movies besides Happy Gilmore. Most of his movies are dumb, but he has done some good work.

"Hey, remember Miami Vice? No, you're not getting an actual joke. Just laugh at the fact we referenced it!"

This, also; Punch Drunk Love.

Happy Gilmore is probably the one Adam Sandler comedy I really like.
 
2012-06-23 11:10:11 PM  
Happy Gilmore was farking great. My dad's a huge (old fart) golfer, and he farking loves it, too.

HG and WS. The rest, eh.

dragonchild: The problem with Adam Sandler is that he only makes one movie.


Two. The silly comedy, and the weird random surprising one, like 'Punch Drunk Love.'

Which is wonderful, and hardly a "Happy Gilmore" clone.

/Liked 'Little Nicky' too
//Happened to be in Grand Central on the day the filming was taking place there. Only time I've seen a movie being filmed. Was interesting.
 
2012-06-23 11:30:41 PM  
Bea Arthur. Outstanding.
 
2012-06-23 11:33:55 PM  
Performing the Happy, when executed properly, isn't all that bad. The extra momentum helps.

Obviously you have a mental condition. You should be proud you don't hide it.

Then in a roundabout way, it has brought you something besides utter desolation/hopelessness.

/hate Adam Sandler

Happy Gilmore and Bill Madison were both great. Not every movie has to be Citizen Kane.
 
2012-06-24 12:13:37 AM  
I hope he doesn't end up like another golf prodigy, Eldrick Woods.

That is probably the most underrated movie that Adam Sandler was in.

Screw you, subby. Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, and to a lesser extent, The Waterboy, were good movies.
Sandler should have stopped there, but they still seem to make a profit so whatever.

slimshaydee: No one else likes Waterboy?



It's one of the funniest movies ever made. Easily in the top 5.
 
2012-06-24 12:59:21 AM  
the haunkaah movie was pretty good too

happy gilmore wasn't completely terrible...

Happy Gilmore was the reason, I decided to never take up golf.

Despite the fact that my very good fastpitch hitting would've almost certainly transferred into good driving ability (as it did for others on the team) I never would've been able live down the name.

The only AS movie I've ever seen was Happy Gilmore, and I just remember it as one long, unfunny, Subway commercial.

I think I'll pass on the rest of that smug prick's schtick.
 
2012-06-24 04:00:17 AM  
And here I was, thinking I must be the only person in the world who detests Adam Sandler movies - because, otherwise, why would they keep making them ? Thank you, Fark.
 
2012-06-24 04:02:22 AM  
Scratch golfer at age 7? They must have short courses. No 7 year old could shot par on a 6700 yard course. He have to channeling Moe Norman.
