Plot outline: Billy Madison is the 27 year old lazy, unemployed son of a rich tycoon. The tycoon is retiring and wants to hand over his hotel business to his son, but after a long discussion with his vice president, Eric Gordon, Mr. Madison feels that it's best if he gives the company to Eric and not to Billy. Billy protests and later strikes a deal with his dad. If Billy goes back to school, from 1st to 12th in two weeks, he'll get the company. Billy goes back and still acts like a goof throughout school, but manages to study and pass his way through school while crossing paths with his childhood sweetheart, Veronica Vaughn, who's also his third grade teacher, and Max Anderson, the gay principal who has his eye lustfully on Billy. Billy comes close to finishing school when Max receives a threat by Eric to expose Max's past, about Max being a wrestler and killed a fellow wrestler during a fight accidentally. Max will do anything to keep his job and must go on television and make a live statement about how Billy bribed him to pass him on to high school. This destroys Billy's chance to graduate, but Billy's third grade friends stick up for Billy and confront Max, who goes back on television and admits that he lied. To settle the dispute between Billy and Eric, the two decide to do an academic decathlon to see who gets the company. Summary written by Anonymous Billy Madison is the 28 year-old son of Bryan Madison, a very rich man who has made his living in the hotel industry. Billy stands to inherit his father's empire but only if he can make it through all 12 grades, 2 weeks per grade, to prove that he has what it takes to run the family business. Summary written by Paul D. Geiser {pgeiser@freenet.columbus.oh.us} Billy Madison is a non-working, non-educated slacker who lives entirely off his dad. He spends his day drinking beer, reading girly magazines, and hanging out by the pool. When his father realizes that Billy is unfit to run the family business, Billy decides that he must go back to school and earn a real education. He figures it will be no problem going back to high school and learning over again, until he learns that his father bought Billy's passing grades all the way back in elementary school. Thus, Billy must return to elementary school and pass each grade one at a time in a short time, or else he loses his place as heir to the company. In addition, Billy tries to win the hand of Veronica, a sexy school teacher who thinks her students are more mature than Billy. Summary written by David Landers {dml@gwis.com}
Comment: For some unknown reason, Billy Madison(1995) and most of Adam Sandler's movies are popular with audiences. Indication that people are getting less and less intellegent these days. One thing that I hate about the film is the attempt to make Adam Sandler into the next Bill Murray. This attempt fails because Adam Sandler does not have the same comic charm or grace as Bill Murray. Adam Sandler is talented but his talents are wasted in junk like this. I would love to see Adam Sandler play a ruthless and vicious mob boss or hitman because its a role he would be perfect for. Billy Madison(1995) has some cameos from well known actors like Steve Buscelmi. Bridgette Wilson is good in the role of Billy's girlfriend, Veronica Vaughn.
