A Hockey player wannabe finds out that he has the most powerful golf drive in history. He joins the P.G.A. tour to make some money to save grandma's house. The downside is that his hockey player mentality doesn't really go on the P.G.A. tour. Especially with the favorite to win the championship.Written by

The concept was inspired by Adam Sandler's childhood friend Kyle who was a hockey player. Kyle regularly played golf with Sandler and Sandler's father. Kyle is now a teacher in Manchester, New Hampshire (Sandler's home town) and coaches the high school hockey team. See more »
After Bob Barker throws Happy in the water, they roll down the hill together. When they reach the bottom, both are completely dry.
It may seem like they are both dry. But Happy is still wet when Bob Barker is punching him. The back of Bob's pants are wet, as you can tell when he walks away. See more »

My name is Happy Gilmore. Ever since I was old enough to skate, I loved hockey. I wasn't really the greatest skater though. But that didn't stop my dad from teaching me the secret of smacking his greatest slap shot.

On the Fox version, many examples of product placement are cut out: Sports Illustrated becomes "the pros", all references to Subway are cut, "a Pepsi" becomes "some breakfast", and most of the final shot(where Happy shoots his ball through the stands) is cut due to a Subway flag. See more »
Adam Sandler has a very funny movie here that works like no other since Caddyshack. Sandler plays a lazy guy who has to save his grandmother's house from being removed. So, he starts to play golf in a way that only Sandler can. He is also instructed by Carl Weathers (who memorably played Apollo Creed in Rokcy), and wathcing his scenes I had to leave the theater from laughing so much (he had a wooden hand and it always gets knocked off). Sandler knows how to keep people rolling in the ailes, and this proves it. A++
