As he always does in comedy, Costner grants an irresistible gleam of gallantry to male mulishness.

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.

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.

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

This film's overriding message is as pleasing as its flippant, skillful banter.

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.

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.

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