Where's Robbo? "Light Fuse, Stand Back" Division

I've got to head out of town on bidness yet again this afternoon and won't be back until tomorrow night.

In the meantime, to keep things interesting I offer you this. A couple days ago, our pal Kathy the Cake-Eater served up the following random question: Bluto or Carl Spackler?

This got me musing again on an opinion that I have held dear for some years: While Bill Murray is hi-larious, the rest of Caddyshack (including Chevy Chase's bit) is really pretty lame.


"So I don't got that going for me...."

Lame..yeah..but there was the swimming pool scene where a chick lost her top and revealed a really decent set of hooters. Nice hooters can make up for a lotta cinematic shortcomings.

Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?

No argument from me.

Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A former greenskeeper, now, about to become the Masters champion. It looks like a mirac...It's in the hole! It's in the hole! It's in the hole!

I set forth LMC's discussion of the favorite "Caddyshack" quotes, with approximately 30 comments, as proof the movie was funny.

What percentage of the quotes submitted were Murray quotes?

Jake and Elwood.

Tbird: You must have been using your frame-by-frame slo-mo/freeze-frame on your VCR. They WERE nice.
