Movie Info

Seven Days in Utopia follows the story of Luke Chisolm (Lucas Black), a talented young golfer set on making the pro tour. When his first big shot turns out to be a very public disaster, Luke escapes the pressures of the game and finds himself unexpectedly stranded in Utopia, Texas, home to eccentric rancher Johnny Crawford (Robert Duvall). But Johnny's more than meets the eye, and his profound ways of looking at life force Luke to question not only his past choices, but his direction for the future. -- (C) Official Site

Supporting bits, like the saintly love interest played by Deborah Ann Woll, function more as archetypes than flesh-and-blood characters in a lively story.

Seven Days in Utopia, of course, like most sports movies with higher aspirations, tries to position itself as more than a sports movie. And lo and behold, it is -- sort of.

At least watching Black fish, paint and pilot an airplane is less boring than golf.

Russell's spoon-feeding of motivational nuggets turns to full-blown shoveling in the film's final minutes...

Like a cliche tent at the State Fair, with lessons in oil painting, fly-fishing and church to help us all find our center.

There are no real bumps in that road, and though the drama has its heartfelt moments, it unrolls as flat as the Texas terrain, cast in an idyllic summer glow.

Audience Reviews for Seven Days In Utopia


Gotta love a movie that requires you to go to a website to find out how it ends. Seriously. "To continue the journey..." and then a website didhemaketheputt. Movie, you suck.

A terrible contemporary take on Happy Gilmore. The actor who plays the caddy is actually his dad. KJ Choi plays a 4-time Masters winner and goes by TK Oh (credits show Tae Kwon Oh). Robert Duvall is the mentor to a young Lucas Black.

Cast: Lucas Black, Robert Duvall, Melissa Leo, Deborah Ann Woll, Robert Bear, Brian Geraghty, Madison Burge, Jerry Ferrera, Sarah Jayne Jensen, Joseph Lyle Taylor, Josh Painting Director: Matt Russell Summary: Talent can only get you so far. For golfer Luke Chisholm, that turns out to be Utopia, Texas -- where he's left stranded after blowing his pro debut. Luckily for Luke, a cagey old rancher enters his life there to change it -- and him -- forever. My Thoughts: "I am not a fan of Golf, nor do I enjoy watching it at all, well unless it's in a film with actor's I enjoy watching. The movie really doesn't have much of the game in the film. The movie is more about Johnny helping Luke find himself, faith, and to teach him that a game does not define him. The movie has drama, comedy, and a bit of romance (not much). The movie has some great actor's in the film and that is what caught my eye. They all put in good performances. Not one I would watch again, but not one I regret seeing either."
