Tin Cup Reviews

August 5, 2008
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.
August 5, 2008
As he always does in comedy, Costner grants an irresistible gleam of gallantry to male mulishness.
August 5, 2008
Tin Cup works for viewers of any handicap.
August 5, 2008
You can almost feel writer-director Ron Shelton praying for lightning to strike twice, but to no avail.

August 5, 2008
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.

August 5, 2008
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.
October 8, 2005
What makes Tin Cup such an unabashed pleasure is Shelton's care in writing and developing interesting characters.

Lose about 30 minutes and there may be a stronger film in there.

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

This is a marginally enjoyable film. It could have been a lot better with more effort.

Kevin Costner's golfing romance has OK swing but bad form.

June 18, 2002
Tin Cup, starring Kevin Costner as a likable loser, accomplishes the impossible, maybe the unimaginable -- it makes golf entertaining.

If you are a golfer, you'll have a better time out on the links.
February 22, 2002
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.
November 12, 2001
Nobody in Hollywood knows more about sports and is less sentimental about them than Shelton.
February 14, 2001
Dispiritingly conventional and obvious.
