Twenty-five years later, and Adam Sandler still has it down.
On the 25th anniversary of "Happy Gilmore”, maybe his greatest movie ever, Adam Sandler hit the links to recreate his old protagonist's iconic swing and it was a total boom on the internet!
That drew responses — first from actor Ben Stiller, who portrayed an evil orderly at the facility where Happy’s grandmother was forced to live.
That was quickly followed by a reply from the account Shooter McGavin, with actor Christopher McDonald staying completely in character, and sinking a living room putt. He said:
“Well thank you to all the fans and thank you to you, Adam Sandler,” “And, uh, why don’t you meet me that the 9th green at 9, Gilmore? A little secret of the pros.”
In the film, Sandler played Happy Gilmore, who was a failed hockey player who turned to golf. His archnemisis in the movie was Shooter McGavin, played by Christopher McDonald.
The film was released in the US on February 16, 1996, and raked in $50 million at the box office.
