There is no structure to Caddyshack, nor any story or drama - which should be expected - what is surprising is that it tries to have some - in the form of Danny Noonan's struggle to obtain a scholarship and through some romantic entanglements he has. It all fails to resonnate at any level so what we are left with is the comedy, the jokes, the quips. The tragedy is that they are far between and only occasionaly provokes a chuckle. Despite having such a talented cast - the whole thing is mysteriously unfunny.
strange how unfunny it turned out considering the cast and the potential
I found this irritatingly unfunny.
