Billy Madison ★½ 1994 (PG-13)

Wealthy slacker Billy (Sandler) must prove to Dad he is capable of running the family hotel business by undertaking the obvious challenge of repeating grades 1-12 in six months. Ponder a few bodily function gags, and you'll have exhausted the humor in this lame attempt at creating a featurelength movie out of what would barely pass as a Saturday Night Live sketch. For only the most diehard fans of Sandler's silly shtick. 90m/C VHS, DVD, HD DVD . Adam Sandler, Darren McGavin, Bridgette WilsonSampras, Bradley Whitford, Josh Mostel, Norm MacDonald, Mark Beltzman, Larry Hankin, Theresa Merritt, Chris Farley, Steve Buscemi; D: Tamra Davis; W: Adam Sandler; C: Victor Hammer; M: Randy Edelman.
