Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Caddyshack

The gopher steals the show in this funny movie about a golfer who has a run-in with the course owner. Chevy Chase is always one to crack you up, and he used this movie as a springboard to his famous National Lampoon Vacation movies. Rodney "I get no respect" Dangerfield is not too bad either, and the gopher is sure to guarantee plenty of laughs throughout the movie.

The review of this Movie prepared by Teddy

Caddyshack essentially tells the story of Danny Noonan (Michael O'Keefe), a young caddie, and his attempts to figure out what to do with his future. He has many possible role models: Ty Webb (Chevy Chase), an independently wealthy playboy, Judge Smails (Ted Knight), a fixture of the country club with control over the club scholarship and a nasty temper, and Al Czervik (Rodney Dangerfield), an ireverrent figure who disrupts the whole club.
