Billy Madison: "T-T-T-Today Junior!". Billy Madison is about a spoiled rich goof-off is forced to repeat grades 1-12 in order to inherit his father's business. When people ask me what is my biggest guilty pleasures movies of all time or something like that, I always say the good old Adam Sandler movies like: Waterboy, Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison. I know this isn't the best comedy of the face of the earth, but this movie brings a nostalgic feeling inside of me every time I watch the film. The jokes in the movie where pretty funny and Adam Sandler movies back in the late 90's really made me laugh and not feel bad about myself, but now his bringing out crap after crap.

People are sensitive when it comes to movies. This is Adam Sandler's funniest movie. It's dumb. Its more dumb than anyone can imagine, but come on...... dumb doesn't mean not good. Stop being so sensitive and enjoy a bunch of laughs from this classic. High re-watchability

In a century where such men as Pol Pot, Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Idi Amin, and Richard Nixon filled the hearts of decent men and women throughout the land with a deep-seated revulsion at their cancerous and genocidal malfeasance, it really is a testament to Adam Sandler's 'talents' that he could make all those figure combined infinitely more agreeable than the character of Billy Madison. If it weren't for Steve Buscemi's cameo, this film would be worse than the Holocaust.

This movie is funnier than it had any right to be. I still laugh at this one more than any other Sandler movie.

This was the beginning of the annoying Sandler schtick where he yells his best jokes and adopts a pseudo-angry/pseudo-simpleton character that he's been abusing for the better part of a decade. There are a few small bits of humor, but Sandler's over-the-top character plainly ruins the movie.

One of Adam Sandler's funnier movies

"Billy Madison" (Adam Sandler) is a huge slacker still living with his father, "Brian" (Darren McGavin), the owner of the "Madison Hotel" chain. "Brian" informs his adult, but immature son that he has decided to turn over his multimillion dollar business to a scheming vice president (Bradley Whitfield). "Billy" tries to get his father to reconsider, but his father has made his choice.

"Billy" tries to get his father to reconsider, but his father feels that "Billy" is not even close to being ready for the responsibility only because he had to buy "Billy's" way through school. "Billy" then gets an idea to prove his worth to his father -- redo every grade in a 24-week span (that's two weeks per grade). But a certain scheming vice president will do anything to gain control of the "Madison...
