You don't need to like golf to like -- perhaps even to love -- The Short Game.
[The Short Game] finds the most entertaining angle on one of the world's dullest sports.
On a cuteness scale -- where 10 is a fuzzy kitten yawning in a hammock -- the chattily uninhibited 7- and 8-year-old golfers of The Short Game score high.
Like its half-pint stars, The Short Game stands on the cusp of brilliance.
What Greenbaum captures is compelling, and occasionally uncomfortable to watch.
This less-than-illuminating work resembles the spelling-bee doc "Spellbound," only with a promise of high-end endorsements and far more pampering.
There's no need to highlight the maturity level of the kids involved when they do it for themselves through the interviews Greenbaum collects and the array of wonderful, small moments that he captures.
One thing the documentary reveals is how much work goes into being at the top.
There is little heavy lifting here but a whole lot of fun to be had.
While a cast of characters this large could easily hinder a doc's focus, it works perfectly in The Short Game to give both a global view and to show how sports can be a Zen-like calling at any age.
Fabulous, kid-friendly docu about world's youngest golfers.
Depending on your tolerance for cute kids saying the darndest things, you'll either want to tee up or get teed off at 'The Short Game.'
