I know this is unrelated but please please please do not send Dave or Brian to the single moms club Jesus Dave is so close to a mental breakdown
Don't worry, Brad and Sarah are going to that
What an awesome headline in the Springfield Informer it would make though: "Local man driven insane by shitty comedy drama".
Uh, excuse me, sir, it's called The State Journal-Register, thank you very much.
Not gonna lie, as a kid I really loved the gopher scenes even though 90% of the rest of the movie was horrible.
Haha Caddyshack 2.....OK?!?! I actually didnt mind it growing up, sure it no where near as good as the original or in the same league but it still got some amusement out of it, Randy Quaid was probably the best thing in this, the Peter Blunt system is hilarious!
I loved Randy Quaid in this movie..
Ugh. This movie proves that there is nothing more painful to watch than failed comedy.
I very, VERY vaguely recall liking this movie as a kid. Granted, the ONLY thing I recalled was the gopher scenes, so odds are my mind blocked out all the stuff I didn't care for. Also, "as a kid" means "my comedy sense was still developing."
This is one of the stupidest looking things I've seen the Snob review, and I wish i could forget this movie's existence more than any other he's reviewed. Which really says something, seeing as how the Snob has reviewed rape movies, puppet porn, 4 talking vagina movies, and the incest scenes from Caligula. What I'm trying to say is: awesome episode Brad
I kinda want to see Brad's comments on "Mannequin" the weird 1980's romance film.
with obvious references to Maniac of course.
AH, yeah.. I remember seeing it at the Theater as a kid..
Oh, fuck this movie! This is one of those things I *thought* I liked when younger, but really just enjoyed the stupid gopher scenes because I was an 8 year-old idiot who was easily amused by a puppet show (Green Jelly was right!), but now, I just want it to die like pigs in Hell.
This movie is to comedy what Necromantic is to eroticism. Every "joke" the movie attempts to make is like slowly spewing out reeking, decaying eyeball. Incidentally, this is the first movie the Cinema Snob has done that has genuinely made me nauseous since NECROMANTIC!
But I do thank you for giving me at least some happy thoughts by showing one of my favorite scenes from Short Circuit; a movie so good that not even *Steve Guttenberg* could fuck it up!
Scenes from this movie "genuinely made [you] nauseous"?
You have issues, man. Talk to somebody and get some fresh air.
I miss the old intro :(
When Chevy Chase is being an asshole and it's not towards you, it's the funniest thing ever.
I now want to watch Caddyshack again! Thanks Snob.
Was that Paul Bartel? And did I hear him call out "Walter Paisley" during the auction scene? That almost makes me want to watch this movie again. Almost. O_o
Back in the day, my mom wouldn't let me rent 'Caddyshack' because it was rated R...however, she did let me rent 'Caddyshack II' because it was PG-13, and I think that ultimately inflicted far more damage on my psyche than any R or X-rated movie could do. Thank God it didn't put me off from watching the first just a few weeks later (with my far more lenient dad).
The quips and riffs in this episode were top notch, BTW.
The Snobs angry laughs made this review! Great stuff!
Alright, I know that this might be the easiest movie to turn into porn spoof, but, come on, try and tell me that Caddyshag doesn't sound like something that should have been already made by now.
Come on man, you know in your heart Space Jam is awesome.
Psst...The Cinema Snob's opinion does not always equal Brad's opinion. ;-) Just so you know. :-)
I miss the Preview Channel. It had awesome music.
A Prevue Channel reference? This is why I love you, Brad.
You say it's worse then Atari golf but is Caddyshack 2 worse then VCR golf?
That's not funny,man! People have been stabbed over VCR golf!
The funny thing about this movie is that I saw it BEFORE I saw Caddyshack. Actually I saw it many times before I saw the original. From that perspective.. it actually isn't too bad. Matter of fact, I was kinda underwhelmed when I saw the original. CSII is more of a remake than a sequel.
I LOVE Rodney Dangerfield.. Easy Money is one of my favorite comedies.. My old 486 had sound clips I made.. "Won't you two put your heads together and make an ass outta yourself." "Will someone shut the fat little bastard up."
I also didn't see Animal House until I was in my twenties (born in 1980). It kinda feel flat with me. Maybe it is my disdain for frat guys. I love Harold Ramis tough.. Stripes is amazing (Constant source of quotes).. Ghost Busters.. Groundhog Day without saying..
Whatever happened to John Murray? I always liked "Moving Violations"
Not much to say except I own both Caddyshack films on DVD!
Thankfully, the Kenny Loggins song still kicks ass despite the quality of the film.
Nothing beats I'm Alright! Well except Danger Zone. That's my favorite Kenny Loggins song.
I wonder if this movie is worse than The Sting II?
Thanks to Caddyshack II, I know what Peter Venkman would've sounded like if Dan Ackroyd took over for Lorenzo Music on The Real Ghostbusters.
Caddyshack III: The Shack Is Back...And Black!
Ah, I remember this was one of the many 80's comedies that Comedy Central played a billion times a week back when I was growing up. Put me down as also seeing it before the original Caddyshack. However, it really doesn't seem all that bad in context of modern comedies. Even the lamer 80's comedies seem to entertain me way more than most modern ones.
I say a copy of Caddyshack in a bargain bin in town once, but I didn't have my wallet on my. So I went back the next day, excited, and got it for just NZ$2. Two bucks! And then I got home, looked closer at the cover, and realised just why it was two bucks. I'd gotten the wrong one.
I still haven't watched it, just because I'm waiting to see the first Caddyshack so I'll know just how much of a betrayal of the original it is.
Wow, lots of crazy people in this.
Chevy has long been known as an ahole around Hollywood.
Jackie Mason became a right-wing nutjob.
And Randy Quaid seems to have gone completely kookoo.
Still, it's not THAT bad of a movie, compared to some of the other dreck you review.
Chevy Chase is one of my comedy heroes. His deadpan delivery was always awe inspiring to me when growing up. He also has the amazing ability to start out playing the dry, funny straight man, but in the blink of an eye can go batshit insane (ie. Clark Griswold's legendary rants).
The stories of Chevy's assholery are definitely legendary, but that doesn't take away from how much the guy inspired me and made me laugh over the years. Watch any comedic performance I've given, and you can see little instances of someone who grew up loving the hell out of both Chevy Chase and deadpan humor.
I never understood the whole thing of people not liking an actor just because they are an asshole in real life.
Hey as long as they bring their A-game to the movie, I'm good.
Nicolas Cage or Christian Bale could be huge huge assholes for all I know, and Channing Tatum could be the nicest sweetest man alive.
But I'll take a movie with Cage or Bale over Tatum any day.
The way I see it, as long as they haven't killed anyone I'm good
(Although I say that, but I still watch the Naked Gun which has OJ in it...oh well still not as awkward as it would be had they hired him to be the Terminator)
Yeah I don't dislike Chevy, and like Jerry said, I don't really care if actors are jerks. It's just that some of Chevy's antics drift into the bizarre behavior category which I find fascinating. Definitely one of my favorite actors too (at least until Snow Day)
after being in caddyshack 2. you'd be an asshole too.
They're not that crazy.
Personally I judge movies based on whether or not they give the audience an experience, and this movie really fails on that front.
And if you were to judge this movie based off of how entertaining it is, well it fails on that route too. There really isn't much here.
Honestly the only reason why I think this movie is bad enough to deserve a review from The Snob (a man who had been to the end of the world and back) is because it left a stain on the name of the Harold Ramis, it's only right that this movie got put to rest, and there's no better man to do the job than The Snob.
ad in the middle of a snob episode HOW DARES U!? (note: i don't actually care and apparently no one else did either)
Oh come on Snob, the movies not that bad, it's still kinda funny, and not what I expect from the cinema snob, also chevy chase isn't always funny
The episode was done in memory of Harold Ramis, just like I did "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" after Ebert's death, and "Shock Shock Shock" after James Gandolfini's death.
I grew up watching Harold Ramis movies, and while "Caddyshack II" is certainly out of the norm for regular episodes, I wanted to make an exception.
Also I never said the phrase "Chevy Chase is always funny." Nobody is "always funny." I'm a huge huge fan of Chase, but there's some stuff even I can't sit through.
I'm going to be disappointed if the squirrels in the segment, "Rape Nuts", are not as zany as the gopher in "Caddyshack II"
But will there be a cameo from Surly the Squirrel?
I hope Kenny Loggins does the theme song to Rape Nuts
I've been scared off this film by it's horredous reputation and after seeing this episode...yeah, I made the right call. This movie looks absolutely atrocious.
I'm curious, is any attempt made at continuity with the original "Caddyshack" besides Chevy's presence? Any explanation what happened to all the other great characters?
And why was Jackie Mason ever considered funny?
"He's not trying to put holes in the cans, he's trying to put holes in you!" - Jackie Mason in The Jerk
Just throwing that out there.
I liked this movie when I was a kid because of a crush on Jonathan Silverman. Now I can't sit through the first 15 minutes. I do still like the soundtrack, though.
Thanks for the trip down memory lane, and a fitting Snob tribute to Ramis!
His fake laugh was the best
I was very tempted to watch this movie since its on netflix & I don't remember seeing it when I when I was younger, but I'm glad I didn't now that I've seen this video and how much it sucks..
I'll just stick to the original, thank you very much! :)
AH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAAAAAAAAAA!
I actually saw this film, first-run, in a movie theater. After watching your review, I realize I remember NOTHING about this film. N-O-T-H-I-N-G! You'd think at least the horrific Jackie Mason cutout animatronic monstrosity would have been something I'd remember at least.
There were four people in the theater when I saw this: myself, the friend I came with, and an elderly couple who fell asleep about ten minutes in. I think the old couple had the better moviegoing experience.
No nod to Paul Bartel?
Actually saw Caddyshack for the first time less than a month ago. It IS really funny.
Caddyshack II looks like those 1990s movies that should have been directed by John Hughes, but WEREN'T directed by John Hughes that were always on Comedy Central on Saturday mornings or the local station that ran every Sunday afternoon in 2005!! Those damn movies!!!
I will defend Randy Quaid, though. He's so over the top in his scenes, it mostly slips back into comedy again. And at least he's trying his best!
Isn't reviewing bad sequels more MikeJ's thing?
This is going to blow your fucking mind. Ready?
Multiple video makers can create their own independent videos about the same movie without direct or even indirect involvement of one another simultaneously or at different points in time.
I was really just referring to the fact that this isn't a horror movie, porn or exploitation, not saying that Brad can't make this video.
@Isaac So can MikeJ then not review a bad sequel if it's horror related because that's "Brad's thing"?
That really depends on your definition of "horror".
Anyway it's not like The Snob hasn't veered away from the horror/exploitation/porn genres before. He's done episodes on stuff like Heartbeeps, Superman The Musical and that Wow Wow Wigger Woggle Whippersnapper dose of fuck.These sorts of reviews may be rare but they're not unheard of.
This episode was done in memory of Harold Ramis.
Besides, I've done a lot of bad sequels prior to this. "Deep Throat Part II," "Silent Night Deadly Night, Part 2," "Friday the 13th Part V," "Grizzly II," the "Sleepaway Camp" sequels, etc etc.
How did Hartounian got rich by buying cheap property near areas of wealth, building cheap slums on the lots, and then cramming as many poor people into them as he could while probably gaining tax write-offs, government funding, kickbacks, and embezzlement. Seriously, what his building is the new "projects" for the city. Many impoverished people are going to have their homes that they own outright condemned, given a "fair price equivalent property" in the projects that are being built, and Hartounian will make a quick dirty buck.
Wow he's really mad about Endless Love.
wow, I always heard this was bad, but didn't think it could be THAT bad, but God help me, it's even worse than I imagined!
Man, considering Harold Ramis' passing, it does make me want to re-watch Caddyshack and some of his other films that I've seen. Caddyshack had so many great characters and scenes, like with Rodney Dangerfield's Al Czervik driving the boat like a maniac, the infamous "Baby Ruth" scene, Chevy Chase's Ty Webb and his "Be The Ball" mantra, the golf game in the storm ("RAT FART!"), and of course, Bill Murray as Carl Speckler, the groundskeeper who treats a gopher hunt as an all-out war. I will admit that I didn't care for Danny Noonan, though. He was boring as hell and his arc didn't really go anywhere.
Great episode by the way, Brad. The movie itself does look pretty bad, especially since Jackie Mason's character is an unlikable jerk who, just from what I've seen in those clips, doesn't have any of Al Czervik's charisma and humor. Sounds like the most good you can get out of it is the gloriously 80s soundtrack (complete with Kenny Loggins) and the performances of Chevy Chase and/or Randy Quaid.
Hey Brad, waaaay back in your Rocky Retrospective with Spoony, didn't you say you saw Caddyshack II twice in theaters? Once with your Mom and once with you Dad? I only remember cause Spoony couldn't believe it.
And yet, this isn't the most horrible sequel to a classic comedy that Randy Quaid has ever been in, considering Christmas Vacation 2. *shudders*
And you know, even if this movie WASN'T a neutered PG sequel to an R-rated comedy, and was able to get away with more, I still really doubt that it could have been even halfway decent. Not that you NEED an R rating to get good laughs, though, but still. Anyway, AWESOME review as always, Brad! I know that it's strange, but along with Chevy's bits, I also think that Randy's stuff was funny as well (though not as much as Chevy's), but I can understand why it'd be more grating for some than funny, and maybe my sense of humor is skewed because of how awful the rest of the movie is. And you needed to take a moment to collect yourself after that bicycle seat 'joke' was beyond hilarious and relateable. ECH.
*And your need to take a moment to collect yourself
Blech, sorry about that bit of bad grammar.
Loved the water slide reference
The Money Pit is one of the formative films of my childhood Brad. We're officially bros now.
I watched early SCTV to remember Ramis.
I'm thankful for this movie for one thing. Imagine if the project had stopped when Dangerfield dropped out. You know the idea for a Caddyshack sequel would have floated around Hollywood until the 90's at which point I am SURE that the guy who came up with "The Shack Is Back!" catchphrase would have got the green light from John Peters and Peter Gubers for a sequel called "CaddyShaq"
This film was released in 1988, the same year Bill Murray starred in Scrooged, another much better movie.
Okay, I'll admit it. I laughed at the joke about the ladies' bicycle seat. Not because it was funny, but because the silence that roared in after it, combined with the look shared by Chase and Silverman, perfectly illustrated how badly Jackie Mason pantsed that scene.
Some of the older archived videos of 2009 were brought over from the youtube account before thecinemasnob.com was created, so please forgive the lesser video quality of such as some did not transfer well.
