Breaking down the golf trajectories into separate shots during the sports climax comes across as an expedient form of cheating--the very opposite of authenticity.

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

If you are a golfer, you'll have a better time out on the links.

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

While the new movie is generally pleasant, it's also creaky: you know exactly where it's going and it takes too long to get there.

You're about to get bonked on the head with a has-been story, mediocre acting, and some squirmingly painful dialogue.

Unfortunately, much of the movie's plot hinges on our belief that Costner is hopelessly, head-over-heels in love with Russo -- and they just don't have any chemistry together.

You can almost feel writer-director Ron Shelton praying for lightning to strike twice, but to no avail.

A formula sports comedy with a lot of non-formula human comedy.

As sports movies go (regardless of the sport), this one turns in a respectable showing, injecting some intelligence and maturity into a story that easily could have succumbed to a flood of 'struggling underdog' cliches.

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.

This is a pleasant enough throwaway film you will not remember in the fall.
