Movie: Happy Gilmore (1996) Sandler is: Happy Gilmore, an overaggressive hockey player who decides to take a swing at the PGA golf tour. His swing may be golf-course ready, but his quick temper is not. Quote: "I didn't break it, I was merely testing its durability, and I placed it in the woods cause it's made of wood and I thought he should be with his family." Estimated IQ rank: 85-99, dull normal Love interest: Virginia Venit (Julie Bowen), the comely PGA tour PR lady. Defining moment: Gilmore tries to keep his cool, but when Bob Barker taunts him on the golf course, Happy cant help but attack. Reason and restraint were never Gilmores strong suit.
