‘Caddyshack’ Movie Summary

Harold Ramis’ directorial debut of Caddyshack opens with a mischievous mechanical gopher reeking havoc and dancing to Kenny Loggins at Bushwood Country Club somewhere that’s supposed to be Nebraska but looks a whole lot like Florida and, at times, Chicago. As our little furry friend burrows his way faster than Usain Bolt across the 9th green, Judge Smailes, played by Ted Knight, everyone’s favorite silver-haired pompous, elitist, blowhard, and head of exclusive Bushwood bellows to the groundskeeper to destroy the rodent before it destroys the course.

Danny Noonan is a normal, horny kid from the wrong side of the tracks in 1980 trying to get to college on a caddy scholarship that just opened up because some kid died of an anxiety attack while swallowing his own vomit. Danny works at the Bushwood Caddy shack where it clearly states, No Fighting, No Spitting, No Drinking, No Gambling, No Bare Feet, which they promptly ignore throughout the entirety of the movie. Pick up that candy wrapper.

Danny caddies regularly for ultra-rich and ultra-distracted Chevy Chase as Ty Webb doing his best young Clark Griswold impression before he married the heavenly Beverly D’Angelo. Ty is better at golf than Jack Nicklaus simply by quoting zen gibberish and chanting a few na-na-na-nas but he’s too cool to care since he just sleeps with a super-hot blonde ball washer in the movie so it doesn’t really matter. Pick up those gumballs.
