Here's a movie that would benefit from being broken up by late-night television commercials.
Between plot and character, there are definitely 18 holes in "The Squeeze."
Within the legacy of golf movies, this subpar thriller doesn't reach the leaderboard.
A moralizing, paint-by-numbers parable lifted right out of the Hollywood hack playbook.
Worthy addition to the annals of golf movies and a decent gambling-caper film, marred by a subpar final act.
Won't efface memories of the best caper pictures. Golfers, however, may well find it a pleasant diversion. At least it shouldn't tee them off.
A third act twist renders everything null and void and seriously strains anything mildly resembling reality.
There's a game of conscience being played alongside golf, yet "The Squeeze" never achieves urgency.
Imagine: Death threats. A $1 million bet. And it all rests on one. Round. Of golf. There's a reason thrillers aren't set on the fairway.
For much of its running time, it delivers a perfectly breezy, entertaining story, but then the third act trips everything up.
Bits of characters and scenes suggest a less cheesy or more breezy movie could have resulted from this.
'The Squeeze' boasts an opening sequence with the wildest golf action I've ever seen on screen, and the last part of the film offers lots of suspense. One of my favorite golf movies.
