Happy Gilmore (more like "Mad Gilmore!" Which could have been a better title.) The movie as a whole is impaired, predictable, & a bit of a low-brow. The characters are somwhat mediocre but unlikable. Happy by Adam Sandler is an over the top hot-headed player for sports from hockey to golf, he rides on objects like it's a bull. Some of his dialogue is lazy and weak . And he also called a live alligator a mean bad foul name in the making of this film. (NEVER EVER treat animals like garbage!). I had mixed feelings for the gator bit: i was glad that the gator was not harmed & it was an animatronic, but on top of that, never abuse or kill an animal & the camera footage of the gator running into the pond was actually a crocodile. Shooter McGavin is the bully that pretends to shoot with his hands (hence the name) fine enough. The guy played by Ben stiller abuses old women. a lot of these parts have somthing to do with a bad script. Positive time: it has great camera work. It does have funny moments, & 2 moments are the funniest. This movie does care about family and money, but this film takes sports and games too seriously. Overall: a sports comedy that is not for everyone.

I know critics didn't like this movie but I this was one that I loved from my childhood and can still enjoy today. The characters have heart and I feel Sandler's Comedy is still in it's golden days. This and Mario Golf is what got me interested in golf at all and I still think about this movie years after it's been released. Which is not something I can say about a lot of Sandler's movies.
I've always loved this movie, funny setting, amazing actors, perfect movie in my opinion. One problem, when I try connecting it to my Xbox One, it glitches out and just shows a green screen. Is it able to be fixed or am I just outta luck on this?
