Twenty years ago, that’s right — two decades ago — Adam Sandler released a little movie called Happy Gilmore. The film, which grossed $41.2 million, became an instant classic for '90s kids. Many of us, myself included, spent the latter part of the '90s quoting Happy Gilmore and consistently rewatching it. In fact, I know most of the film word for word. In honor of Happy Gilmore ’s 20th anniversary I'm counting down the best 18 quotes of the movie. It certainly offers no shortage of amazing one liners.
For those of you who need a quick refresher, Happy Gilmore is about a die-hard hockey fan who turns to golfing for money in order to save his grandma’s house from being repossessed by the government. Along the way he meets a girl (Julie Bowen), makes some enemies (Shooter McGavin) and gets the crap beat out of him by Bob Barker. Also, Ben Stiller makes what I believe to be the best cameo of all time. If it’s been a long time, I suggest you use the cold weather as an excuse to stay in and re-watch. Trust me, it’s worth it, ya jackass!
Happy anniversary, Happy!
