Billy Madison

"Grim"

Billy Madison Review


Yet another forgettable and asinine entry into the Adam Sandler oeuvre, Billy Madison is ridiculous and stupid yet, ashamedly, made me laugh from time to time. The story involves a lazy rich kid who decides to repeat grades 1-12 to prove himself as worthy of taking over a major hotel chain (yeah, that'll prove it!) from his father. The gags are straight out of Sandler's usual box of toys. He spends most of the film doing his faux-castrato whine. Even the lunch lady makes an appearance. That doesn't mean you should make one too, though.
