You may have seen the cult classic Caddyshack more times than Danny Noonan has practiced his putting, but you may still be unaware of everything that went into making this comedy film.

Animal House 2.0?

While director Harold Ramis had immense success with Animal House, he still had some trouble getting his original ideas off the table and onto screens. However when he pushed for a script that was basically "Animal House on a golf course" he was given the a-okay.

Not many people know that Murray  had worked as a groundkeeper and caddy at a golf course when he was younger.

Even less people know that he was only on set for six days total, and improvised all of his lines, including his now famous "Cinderella speech!"

Explosion? What Explosion?

Perhaps the most interesting thing about this movie is how it evolved into something completely different while filming.

Curse Of 'The Mummy' - How The Classic Film Nearly Wiped Out Its Cast

If any movie proves that "they just don't make 'em like they used to," it's The Mummy.That's the The Mummy - as in the box office smash of 1999, to avoid any confusion with certain other films bearing the same name.The mystical adventure had action, laughs, and special effects that look amazing to this day - and they should, because they cost $150,000 per shot.While The Mummy gave audiences chills, making the movie was just as frightening for its cast. From the very beginning of the shoot, to the movie's premiere, it seems like the film's

I've Only Just Realized All Disney Princesses Are Missing A Body Part And I'm Bothered
