Caddyshack II

Caddyshack IIB

(out of 5)

Lame-brained sequel to the original comedy, which wasn’t all that great to begin with. This time it’s  who’s the focus of attention, as a “vulgar” new-money contractor who barges into the snobby WASP-riddled country club because his daughter is looking to move up in the ranks and fit in. Mason’s boisterous personality, which the members find obnoxious and unsuitable, immediately clashes with head white guy  and begins a tug-of-war that has them fighting over control of the club itself. You might get a couple of laughs out of it, but in general it’s not funny, far too cliched and the romantic angles involving the daughter are dry as sand.  has an idiotic cameo that hurts to watch,  provides the few tickles in a repeat of his role from the original film, and  is the only genuine warmth as the sexy gal who captures Mason’s heart (and is equally unappealing to the snobs).
