* DudeNotFunny: Bill Murray's eccentric groundskeeper, reportedly based on a real man who suffered from serious mental problems, might not seem as funny to people with relatives who suffer from Autism and/or other mental health problems.

-->'''Czervik''': I hear this place is restricted Wang, so don't tell them you're Jewish.* ScapegoatCreator: Harold Ramis and Peter Torokvei for the second movie. They're the credited writers, but they actually backed out when Rodney Dangerfield did. Uncredited writers finished the script. According to Ramis, he wanted to have his name removed, but executives convinced him that would only cause bad publicity once the trades found out.

* RomanticPlotTumor: Danny has a girlfriend. Oh, maybe she's pregnant! She isn't? OK, forget it.

* RomanticPlotTumor: Danny has a girlfriend. Oh, maybe she's pregnant! She isn't? OK, forget it. (Actually an inversion: the residual romantic plot is what's left of the movie's main plot line after the comedy bits took over and stole most of the movie's running time.)

* TheyJustDidntCare: Actually, some have argued that Chevy Chase makes the second film almost worth watching on his own, just because of his making no attempt at all to hide his utter contempt for the script, until his final appearance looking at a non-existent watch and saying he has to go could easily come off as Chase himself instead of the character.

** Everything said about Jackie Mason above also applies to Rodney Dangerfield in the original. It'd be a lot easier to accept Smails as the old-money snob he's meant to be (a few KickTheDog moments with Danny notwithstanding) if Czervik wasn't such an obnoxious buffoon who almost seems to go out of his way to offend as many people as he can.

** This gets so much worse in the second movie. The "snobby" country club members do virtually nothing wrong except act slightly rude to Jackie Mason's character, and that's because he's genuinely rude and annoying too. Not to mention he wants to build low-income housing around their property just to spite them and turns their country club into a gaudy amusement park.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: The sequel. It's typical for the follow-up to a successful film to try to recapture what made the original a hit, but ''Caddyshack II'' went to extremes, with having another theme by Kenny Loggins just the beginning. And it's not just having a similar plot or new characters filling the same roles as those of the original, but the sequel has Suspiciously Similar Substitutes for some of the first film's scenes and gags too.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: The sequel. It's typical for the follow-up to a successful film to try to recapture what made the original a hit, but ''Caddyshack II'' went to extremes, right down to having another theme by Kenny Loggins. And it's not just having a similar plot or new characters imitating those of the original, but the sequel recycles scenes and gags too.
