Classic Movie Trailer: Caddyshack (1980)


Flick Nation Presents … a selection of curated classic movie trailers.

And when we say “classic,” that doesn’t mean the movie was necessarily good, but has endured the test of time. Sure, maybe it’s one of the greatest flicks ever … or maybe it’s a movie that’s so awesome that it should have endured. Either way, consider the next two minutes of your life as homework for your streaming queue.

The official line: Caddyshack is a 1980 American sports comedy film directed by Harold Ramis and written by Brian Doyle-Murray, Ramis and Douglas Kenney. It stars Michael O’Keefe, Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, Ted Knight, and Bill Murray. Doyle-Murray also has a supporting role.

But the truth is that Caddyshack is the funniest goddamn thing anyone coming up in the 80s has ever seen. It had Rodney’s insults, a rowdy puppet gopher, explosions, boobs, classic quotes throughout (“It’s in the hole!” “Someone step on a duck?” “Are you gonna eat your fat?”), and an instant classic swimming pool scene.

I can’t tell you how many times in any given week I quote this movie. But maybe that just means I’m still a 13-year-old at heart.

Be the ball.
