Tin Cup Reviews

Page 1 of 3


The dialogue and characters are convincing and intelligently developed. Russo wears vulnerability and neediness like a second skin, while Costner plays the tragic hero with considerable charm.

As he always does in comedy, Costner grants an irresistible gleam of gallantry to male mulishness.

The climactic game, in which Roy, in a way that defies prediction, attempts to sink the shot of his life, is the most rousing sequence of the year, a celebration of what it really means to win.

Amiable and constantly amusing rather than uproarious, this mangy tale of a ne'er-do-well's fitful assault on personal and professional respectability benefits greatly from Kevin Costner's ingratiatingly comic star turn.

Costner hasn't been this charming and spontaneous for years.

What makes Tin Cup such an unabashed pleasure is Shelton's care in writing and developing interesting characters.

Shelton resurrects the likable Costner of "Bull Durham" in this genial golf comedy.

All the golf action and happy "feel-good" emotions that audiences expect (and want) but... without following the traditional sports movie conventions.

Like other Shelton movies, it's dappled with interesting characters.

Tin Cup, starring Kevin Costner as a likable loser, accomplishes the impossible, maybe the unimaginable -- it makes golf entertaining.

One of the best films of 1996 with its message that in love and in sports, playing it safe can't hold a candle to taking risks and acting from the heart.

Nobody in Hollywood knows more about sports and is less sentimental about them than Shelton.
