Quotable: "We finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, 'Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know.' And he says, 'Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness.' So I got that goin' for me, which is nice."
Fun Fact: The gopher noises are the same noises used in Flipper, the show about the intelligent, friendly dolphin.
Caddyshack certainly brings out the ridiculous in the white-washed world that is the American country club. Although the film wasn't exactly a hit when it first came out, it has slowly grown on audiences and now America's favorite sex addict (Tiger Woods) cites it as his favorite film. While no character in this film lacks personality, young Bill Murray shines in his small role as a loser greens keeper's assistant on a mission to kill one sonofabitch dancing gopher. This movie has so many quotable moments, from "I've often thought of becoming a golf club" to "I smell varmint poontang" and the list goes on. Caddyshack's total lack of restraint makes it a cult classic.
