Comparison of “The Squeeze” to some other popular golf movies:
- “Caddyshack” – “The Squeeze” is like the less funny, less quotable cousin of “Caddyshack”. While “Caddyshack” is a classic comedy that has stood the test of time, “The Squeeze” falls flat in the humor department.
- “Tin Cup” – “The Squeeze” tries to be like “Tin Cup”, but fails to capture the same sense of heart and charm. While “Tin Cup” is a movie about chasing your dreams and following your passion, “The Squeeze” is more about…I’m not really sure, actually.
- “Happy Gilmore” – “The Squeeze” is like the poor man’s “Happy Gilmore”. While “Happy Gilmore” is a hilarious and iconic sports comedy, “The Squeeze” lacks the same level of humor and charm.
