Why wasn't Ben Stiller as Mr. Hal credited in the film "Happy Gilmore"?
Hi, so I love the Adam Sandler movie Happy Gilmore. I noticed that Ben Stiller as the mean orderly at the retirement home, was not credited as a member of the cast. He had a solid supporting role in the film, so I am just wondering why he wasn't credited when lesser charecters were. If you have any thoughts ideas or information, please let me know. Thanks!

Ben Stiller is a close friend of Adam Sandler... Hollywood friends do this sometimes so they don't take any credit away from the main actor (who is their friend). It's a silent sign of respect to their friend. In the same way, Owen Wilson was not credited in Night at the Museum, and he's a close friend of Ben Stiller.

Jeff Dove and Mike Hopkins posted the same question. You should read their answers side by side.
