More Info IMDb


From the opening scene of drunk Billy randomly chasing a penguin around his father's mansion ("It's too damn hot for a penguin to just be walkin' around!") through his ultimately triumphant academic decathlon ("Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it."), BILLY MADISON is simultaneously one of the most ridiculous and one of the most insanely quotable films of all time. Before Adam Sandler mercilessly destroyed the souls of a generation of people too ignorant to avoid JACK AND JILL, he spent his years immediately following SNL filming two masterpieces: HAPPY GILMORE and BILLY MADISON. And while HAPPY is undoubtedly a great film (that we'll be doing something fun with in the near future, too), BILLY MADISON has always been the one that lives in my soul.

If there's a swan looking at me? I tell him to stop immediately. If I'm packing my lunch? I'm always sure to include a Snack Pack. If you're hungry waiting for a late dinner? I'll tell you that you should have had some delicious Triscuit crackers in the car. And if you pee yourself? I'll totally splash my pants and then tell all the other kids that peeing yourself is the COOLEST. Seriously, I've got your back.
