Happy Gilmore (1996)
Ever wondered how Ace Ventura: Pet Detective would have turned out if you removed Jim Carrey and replaced him with a mediocre comedian? Happy Gilmore more or the less gives you the answer. Only in Ace Ventura, Mr. Adam Sandler would at least have had some good lines and oddities to work with. In this picture, the material mainly consists of toilet humour, which at best is a little bit amusing, but mostly is either horrible or tedious. And poor Sandler cannot add much more than effort to his part. So much effort, actually, that he's closer to frantic than funny. Old-timers Carl Weathers (Rocky) and Richard Kiel (Jaws from James Bond) are the only redeeming attributes here.
