Class Clowns. If Rodney Dangerfield’s scene-stealing turn in Caddyshack proved the stand-up veteran deserved Hollywood’s respect, this huge-grossing, one-liner-filled comedy confirmed he was a bona-fide star. Here, in a twist on the Caddyshack formula, a nouveau-riche Dangerfield accompanies his son to a stuffy university to gain the education — and respect — he never had. Highlights include cameos by Sam Kinison, Robert Downey Jr., and the late literary legend Kurt Vonnegut.
