Happy Gilmore hit theaters in 1996 and starred Adam Sandler (Happy Gilmore), Julie Bowen (Virginia Venit), Christopher McDonald (Shooter McGavin) and Carl Weathers (Chubbs).

The movie follows a wannabe hockey player, Happy Gilmore, who finds success in an entirely different sport: golf. With the help of his foul mouth and powerful swing, he becomes an unlikely contender among a sea of professionals. Highlights include getting into a fist fight on the green and talking to the golf ball as if it’s not an inanimate object.
