'Happy Gilmore' Anniversary
Adam Sandler's tweet also received a funny response from fellow Hollywood star Ben Stiller, who also had a minor role in the movie.
He gushed over Sandler's golfing skills by saying he has a beautiful swing.
"Congrats on your anniversary and being such a loving grandson," Stiller wrote. "So happy to be a small part of taking good care of her during her "golden years."
'Happy Gilmore' Fans Demand Sequel
After posting the video, several fans replied to Sandler's video and demanded that there should be a sequel to "Happy Gilmore."
"I feel like the basic story/plot is already there," one Twitter user said. "All the main characters and their 'kids.' Shooter's kid's name could even be 'Gunnar McGavin.'"
Another suggested that the sequel should focus on Happy learning he has a son "from his wild days on tour that he never knew existed."
One fan also suggested that instead of "Happy Gilmore 2," they should do a series called "Shooter" where Happy focuses on a broke and broken Shooter McGavin, "who is trying to earn his senior PGA tour card."
Though some ask to make another film, some fans argued that classics "are great in their own spotlight."
