As a follow-up to the 1980 hit film "Caddyshack," "Caddyshack II" was released in 1988. The comedy film follows Jackie Hartounian (played by Jackie Mason), a self-made millionaire who wants to join the snobby Bushwood Country Club but is denied membership. In retaliation, he buys the neighboring property and builds the world's largest recreational facility, complete with a go-kart track, a video game arcade, and a shopping center. This infuriates the club's members, led by club president Chandler Young (played by Robert Stack).
Throughout the film, Jackie struggles to fit in with the high-class club members while trying to win over Chandler and his daughter Kate (played by Dyan Cannon). His efforts are often thwarted by Chandler's scheming nephew, Jack (played by Dan Aykroyd), who tries to sabotage Jackie's business and his chance of gaining acceptance into the club.
As the rivalry between Jackie and the club intensifies, chaos ensues on and off the golf course. Meanwhile, the club is preparing for its annual golf tournament, where Chandler is determined to prove his worth as a golfer and defeat his longtime rival, Ty Webb (played by Chevy Chase), who is brought in as a consultant for the tournament.
Unlike its predecessor, "Caddyshack II" received poor reviews from critics and was considered a box office flop. Many criticized the film for its lack of originality and reliance on recycled gags from the first film. However, the cast's performances were praised, particularly Jackie Mason's portrayal of the main character.
Despite its poor reception, "Caddyshack II" has become a cult classic among fans of the original film and has even inspired merchandise and references in pop culture. The film's signature line, "Be the ball," has become a popular catchphrase and has been referenced in various TV shows, movies, and even music videos.
Overall, "Caddyshack II" is a comedic take on classism and the world of golf that fails to live up to the original film's success but still manages to entertain with its over-the-top humor and talented cast.
Caddyshack II is a 1988 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 38 minutes. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.8 and a MetaScore of 7.
