Adam Sandler‘s altercation with legendary TV game show host Bob Barker was probably the most memorable part of the 1996 comedy film Happy Gilmore, which saw Sandler’s title character as a hot-headed hockey player who enters a pro golf tour to win money to save his grandmother’s home. At one of the tournaments, Happy is paired with Bob Barker and an hilarious rumble ensues.
