Normally I wouldn’t be packing two films together into one review, but in the case of Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison, I’m making an exception because they are being released together in a special “collection” DVD set.
Now, let me say off the bat that I’m not a Adam Sandler fan. I have friends who are, but I just don’t think most of his movies are all that funny. And in this collection, I half liked it and half disliked it. That means I enjoyed Happy Gilmore, but found Billy Madison to pretty much represent everything I didn’t like about Sandler’s movies as well as some of his Saturday Night Live skits.
