Billy Madison

Synopsis: Billy Madison is a 27 year-old man whose father Brian is the head of a major hotel chain. Even though he is groomed to replace his father who is about to retire, Billy is extremely immature and unmotivated in life. When Brian considers making Eric Gordon (whom Billy despises) his new replacement, Billy decides to prove to his father that he is capable of taking over. He must repeat grade school all over again (2 weeks for each grade) in order to take over the hotel empire. The further Billy progresses, the more Eric tries to derail Billy.

- Meg Ryan.

- Go.

Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go!

Oh, my God! I am the winner!

- Billy is not an idiot.

- I'm not saying he's an idiot.

I just think he might not be mature

enough to run a Fortune 500 company.

My late wife Emily and I

started this company...

..with a 15-unit motel

in Patchogue, Long Island.

We built it into 650 hotels.

Our dream was to one day

turn it over to our only son Billy.

- How many people work for Madison?

- 61,000 and change.

How long will they have jobs once Billy

has the hotel operator speaking gibberish?

Oh, Billy, Billy boy.

When are you gonna find

whatever it is you're lookin' for?

Here's a nice piece of shit.

My, oh, my. Wait till old man Clemens

realises it's a bag of shit.

He's gonna shit when he realises it's shit.

Who got the lighter?

Come on.

Light it.

(rings doorbell)

Oh, my God! Old man Clemens hates shit!

Shh. Here he comes!

Who the hell is it? What do you want?

Judas Priest, Barbara!

One of those flaming bags again!

(Barbara ) Don't put it out

with your boots, Ted.

Don't tell me my business, devil woman.

Call the fire department.

This one's outta control(!)

(sniffs )

It's poop again!

He called the shit ''poop''!

This is the best night of my life!

I'll get you damn kids for this!

You're all gonna die!

Billy, could you step in here

for a moment?

I have big news.

Eric is pregnant! Congratulations, Dippy!

Feel those kicks!

He's gonna be a soccer player. He is.

He is.

All right, what's up?

I've had to face

some hard truths tonight, Billy.

Do we have to do this

with Captain Dipshit here?

You were brought up with

every advantage. I bought you everything.

Toys, cars, vacations, clothes...

Actually, I stole this shirt from Frank.

Yeah, well, whatever.

It's all my fault. I made a mistake.
