Caddyshack 
Cinderella story out of nowhere!!
3.5/4 stars

It's difficult calling anything the "best" of that genre or category, but this isn't hard at all. Just as "Shawshank redemption" and "No Country For Old Men" were the two greatest motion pictures of all-time, "Caddyshack" is easily the greatest comedy of all-time. With a classic hilarious ensemble cast that included unforgettable performances by the likes of Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield & Ted Knight, most at the peak of their performing careers, and with incredible leadership and writing from top notch guys like Harold Ramis and Brian Doyle-Murray, you gotta go with The Shack. Now a quarter century old, the film still holds up with it's classic "slobs vs. snobs" conflict. The depth and delivery of the one-liners here has never been equaled on film. The great stand-alone scenes are too numerous to mention all of them, but include: - Murray as Carl the Groundskeeper, whacking the flower bed as he fantasized about winning the Masters - Dangerfield prancing into the pro shop with his Asian buddy, and telling him that the club is restricted, so "don't mention you're Jewish" - Chase "playing through" Murray's pad, and their sharing a joint, a "cannonball", and tremendous comedic timing - Dangerfield in the club restaurant, introducing himself around Knight's table, then taking over the dance floor as he flips a huge wad of cash to the band; "Hey, Ringo, you and the boys take some lessons" - Murray caddying for the priest near the end; "The good Lord would never interrupt the best game of my life!" as thunderstorms blast all around them
It just goes on and on and on.....
