Happy Gilmore (1996)
We owe you an apology. In more than 200 movies, Shat The Movies somehow neglected to select a film starring Adam Sandler. Listener Steve W. decided to make things right by commissioning the 1996 golf comedy classic "Happy Gilmore."
Hot on the heels of "Billy Madison," this cameo-filled gut-buster hit the ground running without wasting a minute, made us question what it means to be a winner, championed the everyman, and was endlessly quotable.
Who doesn't love to hate Shooter McGavin? Who doesn't love to love Chubbs? And who ever expected to see Bob Barker kick the crap out of the hero?
"Happy Gilmore" was full of surprises in an era when we thought we'd seen it all. It took a boring game and made it exciting. And it taught each of us to find our happy place.
