Reddit Revisits Vintage Adam Sandler Reliving Favorites With Happy Gilmore Streaming on Netflix

Now that Netflix has hit what can only be described as its rock bottom in the last decade, it is making sure its comeback is strong enough. While the release of Ozark and later Stranger Things is guaranteed to get a lot of the membership back, Netflix is also adding a number of some very amazing titles under its wing. One of them is an Adam Sandler movie named Happy Gilmore. Here’s all you need to know about the film and the recent Reddit thread talking about Adam Sandler’s previous works.

What is Happy Gilmore about?

The phrase Happy Gilmore sounds eccentric enough as the title of a movie alone. But, considering this is an Adam Sandler movie we’re talking about, fans are not shocked when they realize that the movie is named after the character Happy Gilmore, played by Sandler himself. Gilmore is a former hockey player who wasn’t as good at the sport as he wanted to be. Subsequently, he develops a recent interest in pro golf. In order to save money to save his grandmother’s house, Gilmore joins the sport.

But, well-mannered golf professionals and the foul-mouthed Happy are worlds apart. Hence, when Happy is gaining attention and recognition for his work, they are certainly not pleased. Along the way, Happy makes some friends, some enemies and even finds a romantic interest. This wholesome and extremely hilarious story saw its release in 1996. As of 2022, Netflix is picking up the film and making it available for streaming on the platform.
