On this day in comedy on July 27, 2007 Who’s Your Caddy? was released by The Weinstein Company
The maiden voyage flick for Our Stories Films studio was a commercial and critical flop, but carries the distinction of being former-president, Bill Clinton’s favorite comedy. Known as a rip-off of the classic, Caddyshack, Who’s Your Caddy? is a who’s who of pop culture figured of the era. The fast-paced romp starts rapper, Big Boi as a rapper who only wants to be admitted into a private country club, but when the hoity toity board refuse him due to cultural reasons he outsmarts them. The rapper buys property that includes the 17th hole of the oh so precious golf course. Negotiations are a waste of time. The upper crust boys want nothing to do with him and will go to Hell and back before allowing his kind to mix with their kind. Well, then Hell it is.
The film co-stars Faizon Love, Tony Cox, Terry Crews, Jeffrey Jones, Lil Wayne, Sherri Shepherd, Andy Milonakis, Jesper Parnevik, Bruce Bruce, James Avery, Finesse Mitchell, Garrett Morris, Tamala Jones, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Susan Ward and directed by Don Michael Paul. Tracey Edmonds, Kia Jam and Arnold Rifkin produced the film that made $2.76 million it’s opening weekend for a total gross of $5,713,425. Too bad it cost $7 million.
