The cast is strong and will probably save the film with the general audience because they don't overact; they keep it simple and real.

The message that winning isn't the most important aspect of life, as well as the chemistry between lead actors Robert Duvall and Lucas Black, make the film very enjoyable.

Treats its subject as if it's a tap-in for par, and thus, most of the best clubs were left in the bag.

Because of Dad and Deb, I could not detest this strange, good-hearted, sloppy movie. Dad discovered a passion for golf late in life. My dear friend Deb, too, speaks often about the challenge of the game, which has touched her profoundly.

Prosaic doesn't begin to describe a Christian propaganda fantasy movie so out of touch with reality and cinema that it comes across as an insult to your intelligence.

A faith-based earnest little picture sponsored largely by Callaway Golf that takes seriously the nonsense that golf is a metaphor for life. No, it's a metaphor for golf.

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.

A surprisingly ineffective cast delivers a muddled religious message

It's not challenging on the spiritual level nor is it particularly good.

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.

This wholesome movie stresses values that seem to have been lost in America. It is a refreshing change of pace to have a movie that doesn't need to resort to violence, sex, drugs or bad language to tell a story resonating emotionally % appealing to all...

This Christian-themed, inspirational foray into the sacred soul of golf and man is beautifully shot, well-acted by a cast headed by Texans Robert Duvall and Lucas Black, and about as electrifying as a Sunday afternoon La-Z-Boy golf nap.

Disgruntled teen golfer meets the Yoda of golf. Learns how golf is a metaphor for Buddhism.

Even the great Robert Duvall can't save this triple bogey of a movie.

The movie is undermined by bland to bad writing, directing and editing. (Parental Movie Review also available)

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.
