Running Time: 89 mins

Billy Madison is an American film about an idiotic, immature man who has to go back to school and pass all 12 grades in order to inherit his father’s fortune and take over his wealthy hotel chain.

This has to go down as possibly the most juvenile film in history. Obviously, sometimes it’s fun to watch something completely senseless and ridiculous, however there did come a point during this movie in which I felt that I wanted to be interested in a story of some sort, but that never came.

I enjoyed some of the comedy in the film, especially some of the more intelligent jokes, rather than just constant burp and fart noises, which actually do get boring after you hear them a million times. The story, if there is one, was pretty poor and predictable, meaning that I was not very entertained by this movie.

Overall, this gets a 6.4 because although some parts were funny and entertaining, for the most part, it was very shallow and obvious, mainly with all of the very juvenile jokes throughout.
