    You know, I ve often thought of becoming a golf clubAs other reviewers have stated previously, this book really transplants the reader to a different era in American cinema A different era in American culture, even Nashatawy neatly sews together the various happenings that led to the creation of Caddyshack and offers a fascinating insight into the ins and outs of the production of one of the craziest films ever unleashed on the world With fascinating quotes from stars and production personnel scattered throughout, even the staunchest Caddyshack obsessive will discover a lot from this book As other reviewers have noted, you may struggle to put the book down as you flip from page to page.This book isn t just for Caddyshack aficionados Anyone with an interest in the history of American comedy, the 1970s, liberal drug consumption or anything like that should consider this book a must read.

    I enjoyed it, I did expect though and it did not deliver on all points Some cool and interesting stuff about Chase and Murray Certainly good to see such a cult classic by its own book, expectations maybe too high as I love the film so much.

    I pre ordered this book months ago and devoured it when it arrived Tuesday Caddyshack s the first adult comedy I remember going to the theater to see maybe not the best pick for an eleven year old A family friend and her younger brother took me to a raucous, packed Friday evening show I loved it, everyone loved It played well here in the Midwest and later when it would come on cable I d watch it again and again.Which is why it s so surprising that it got such a tepid response at first I hadn t how it related to the sea change that came from Animal House, or how it fit next to the other big comedy blockbusters of that year The Blues Brothers and Airplane Nashawaty does an amazing job providing context He spends solid time looking at the evolution of the filmmakers from Harvard Lampoon to National Lampoon to Second City to SNL When we get to the production of the movie proper he provides an amazing behind the scenes with the crew, cast, and hangers on.But he smartly tempers that with his discussion of the rivalries, painful relationships, and excesses of the production He gives us a keen sense of emotions and human cost involved, spending a good deal of time talking about the tragedy of Doug Kenney The book s smartly structured, a pleasure to read, and the author has great descriptions and excellent turns of phrase A great read.

    The Making of a Loveable Movie Starting at Harvard then the National Lampoon then Animal House and finally Caddyshack how a small group of people, many SNL castmembers and original castmembers, make an average movie that is immortalized forever to those who laughed our way through the viewing Great stories of Chevy Chase looking at it from a different perspective now And Bill Murray shows his true improvisation capabilities Pond or Pool per Chevy Chase in a totally improvised scene.How did Rodney Dangerfield steal the show and Harold Ramis as a neophyte director who early and in editing almost ruined the movie But really this book is about Doug Kenney Don t know who he is Well look him up And if you ever need to lead a band in to a deadend alley, he s your guy.

    Stellar piece on one of the most iconic comedies of all time Going into reading of this book, I knew very little of the breadth of chaos that went into creating this film Was sad to read about Doug Kenney s spiral, and shocked to realize I ve been to a specific location that factors heavily in his zany life.I wish there were as comprehensive books as this about my all my favorite films from growing up The author really painted a fantastic portrait of what it would have been like to be caught up in the heyday of Hollywood s rebirth in the 70 s and 80 s.

    I started reading this when I saw it in the New book section of the Huntington Beach library I bought the kindle within 10 minutes since it seemed like it d be a great read, and thankfully for my won lost count of The Books That Burned Me of The Purchase Price by having only a good review written for it, it is you usually know within a few minutes reading whether a book will resonate, or not It s one of those things that are impossible to define or predict that every reader just knows after reading a while and this book did that for me.The author shows great skill in writing this book in that somehow he makes every character in this book seem relevant and important, however small part they play in the story Even if you are not particularly interested in the story of the movie, the skillful way the narrative unfolds happens in a way that never stops being a real page turner from beginning to end.I haven t been able to put this book down the author Chris Nashawaty is my favorite kind of author He introduces the players one by one almost everyone who was involved in the production from the late Doug Kenney to the minor actors from the production and of course, Bill Murray himself and manages to get new, interesting stories and quotes from everyone And every person the author turns his attention to, he makes them stand out in some meaningful way, and does it in a consistently entertaining style.My only complaint about this book is it should have been longer I didn t want to stop reading

    Roughly the first half of this book covers the genesis of the National Lampoon magazine from Harvard Lampoon, and the related spinoffs, which includes Saturday Night Live That section also covers a bit about the making of Animal House, and the interplay among the early SNL stars Belushi, Ackroyd, Chase.The comes the writing and production of the movie It s full of anecdotes about the process, most humorous, some hilarious.Caddyshack is one of those movies with a reputation that has grown over the years This book does a great job of chronically the raw creative energy that fueled the movie The writers, particularly including Doug Kenney Stork in Animal House are covered extensively, both their triumphs and their struggles, both psychological and pharmacological.Highly recommended as a fun, light read You ll never look at the whole NatLamp SNL Animal House Caddyshack culture the same way afterwards.
