Review
HAPPY GILMORE has a lot of hilarity coming in to a hole in one, but this is a one of a kind golf comedy film that Adam Sandler has made. I loved everything in the entire movie such as Ben Stiller’s cameo as well as the scene where Happy gets into a fight with Bob Barker and guess who won? GILMORE is the best, yet funniest of all Sandler features and one of my favourites. 

It is one of those greatest films that you can confidently recommend to one of your friends and be sure they will find it hilarious. This movie is pure comedy gold. Tomorrow, I will publish my review of the 1978 musical GREASE which stars John Travolta and Olivia Newton John, don't forget.

Star rating: (5/5) Best Movie Ever
