Happy Gilmore

Question: In the movie, when you see Happy's dream (happy place) for the second time, you see Shooter "eat" Grandma's tongue, however, in the TV version, that part is cut out, why? There's nothing bad about that part.

Chosen answer: Maybe not to you but to a lot of people a scene in which Shooter graphically makes out with a elderly woman is a little disturbing, not something to be broadcast for children to see.

Question: In the scene where Adam Sandler is shooting with the nail gun, he hits Mr. Larsen's head with the nail gun with the construction hat on. But in the tournament when he sees him again, the hat off but the nail is still in his head? How did he take it off without damage?

Chosen answer: Although the premise of having the nail still in his head after so long is a little far fetched. But the hat would have been 'cut apart' to expose the nail by itself. Probably in a hospital ER.

Question: Why has the Subway logo been removed from Happy's T-shirt during parts of the concluding match? Note, I noticed this on the television version.

Chosen answer: Probably had to do with some sort of legal issue between the Subway Corporation and the television station the movie was airing on.

Question: After Happy sinks the final putt to win the tournament, Shooter grabs his jacket and runs. Mr. Larson catches up to him and off camera yells, "Face down." However, in the TV version, he instead yells, "Stay still." Why is this line changed?

Chosen answer: It is an inuendo that Mr. Larson "violated" Shooter for stealing the jacket, which is changed for the TV versions to be cleaner. However, some people insist it's the same for both versions, so it's possible that later DVD releases were changed too.

Question: Who was the guy that was always around shaking his head every time Happy did something stupid? He mentioned something about Grizzly Adams, having a beard?

Question: How where the flying ball shots in the beginning done? I know it could be a helicopter, but some of the shots go through branches etc. Not too easy with a helicopter.

Question: What was the song that played in Happy's Happy Place? Not the rock part with Shooter McGavin, the first part.

Chosen answer: It's called "We've only just begun".
