Happy Gilmore

Trivia: The evil man at the nursing home is played by Ben Stiller, then a rising star, in an uncredited role.

Trivia: During one of the tournaments, a few of Happy's fans are visible in the background holding cut out signs of his face. This is the same but blown up picture used in Billy Madison to mark the grade he was in.

Trivia: Bob Barker got paid more for his little bit in the movie than Virginia did for the whole thing.

Trivia: Bob Barker did his own fight sequences, or at least most of them. He is reportedly a Black Belt in karate and a Red Belt in tang soo do.

Mark English

Trivia: The President of the tour, Doug, is the movie's director, Dennis Dugan.

Trivia: This is a small tidbit, but I thought it was a little bit interesting. When Happy is talking to Gary Potter for the first time there is an older gentlemen standing in the crown behind them that has a portable chair. At one point he drops it and wants to bend down to get it, but he pauses as though the directors might get mad. (00:35:09)
