Plot Summary
All Happy Gilmore (Adam Sandler) has ever wanted is to be a professional hockey player. But he soon discovers he may actually have a talent for playing an entirely different sport: golf. When his grandmother (Frances Bay) learns she is about to lose her home, Happy joins a golf tournament to try and win enough money to buy it for her. With his powerful driving skills and foulmouthed attitude, Happy becomes an unlikely golf hero -- much to the chagrin of the well-mannered golf professionals.

    Why is he "Happy" with such an "Unhappy" movie? The Happy Golfcaddy would have been more interesting. Still, the short burst fire of funny moments earned Happy Gilmore it's luxurious 2 stars.
