its 1996 review of Happy Gilmore.
The movie did decent box office but was routine and mostly forgettable. Happy Gilmore's one enduring claim to fame is the highlarious duke-out between star Adam Sandler and The Price is Right legend Bob Barker on a golf course. The Daily News review singles out the scene for its highest praise, as you would expect. "The funniest sequence finds Happy paired in a celebrity tournament with game-show host Bob Barker, who turns out, hilariously, to be more than a match for Happy, physically and linguistically."
The scene has grown its own legend over the years. Messrs. Sandler and Barker redid the fisticuffs - this time in a hospital - for a charity special on Comedy Central. The Bold and the Beautiful also got Bob to film a similar scene where he punches out an animal rights opponent. Bob loves his pets, after all. Just have them spayed or neutered. (We did with our chocolate Lab, Bob.)
