Plot[edit]

When hip-hop star Christopher “C-Note” Hawkins (Big Boi) is denied membership into an exclusive Carolina Pines Country Club, he comes up with a cunning plan that will oblige the country club to allow his acceptance. C-Note purchases property that contains land from the 17th hole and bribes the country club for a membership in exchange for his land. The rest of the movie’s plot revolves around the club members and their efforts to get C-Note kicked out, while he disrupts the club’s atmosphere.

In particular, many critics have deemed this film a "terrible rip-off" of Caddyshack.[2][3][4][5] Overall, it is ranked a "Rotten" rating of 6% on Rotten Tomatoes, with the consensus calling the film "unoriginal, unfunny, and just plain forgettable."[6] However, former U.S. president Bill Clinton "loves" the film.[7][8] The film was nominated for a Golden Raspberry awards in the fields of Worst Remake or Rip-off, but lost to I Know Who Killed Me.

In August 2016, Bradley Cooper and Todd Phillips made guest appearances on The Late Late Show with James Corden where they discussed having dinner with former president Bill Clinton in Thailand while filming The Hangover Part II.
