One of Costner's more enjoyable performances. He is on fine form here and showcases his comedic chops to full effect. A pretty fun movie even if you could not care less about golf.

I was more than a bit surprised at how much I enjoyed this light and fun sports-rom-com. I wish the actual sports dramatics were better, which just inexplicable following the whims of the screenwriter instead of the characters reality, but there's still much to like. The dialogue is great, even with the constant golf puns and metaphors, which are delivered with such intention and self-awareness. Costner is in top form; cocky, likable, and disruptive, it's like a grown-up's version of Happy Gilmore.

'Tin Cup' has some entertaining moments, but for a Costner-Shelton collaboration it falls flat not only because of its ludicrous ending, but for taking what worked in 'Bull Durham' and trying to duplicate it to the point where it becomes cliché.

A really inspiring psychological quirky movies. Love it...you have to be able to understand the "Conquering" gene.

Fairytale, good ol' boy, rugged individual, movie making as a country song like only Kevin Costner can pull off.

Absolutely not a Golf movie. A movie about life. Can watch it again & again. Outstanding cast. Oldie, but, goodie.

Eh, I'd rather watch Happy Gilmore.

Unrealistic and juvenile at times. Silly film with a very obnoxious, overly dramatic sound track. Only watch if it's free.

While its predictable, it's also got solid chemistry between Costner and Russo.

Every now and then Costner connects on these sports movies and with this funny,sweet comedy we are reminded of how good he can be.

Written and directed by Ron Shelton, who has always specialised in making sports related films, including Bull Durham (1988), White Men Can't Jump (1992) Cobb (1994) and Play It to the Bone (1999). Here, he weaves a sweet and likable romantic comedy, based around the sport of golf. It was ever so partially inspired by the career of Gary McCord, who worked on the film too as a technical adviser. Roy McAvoy (Kevin Costner) was once a promising golf prodigy who earned the nickname Tin Cup, but his career never went anywhere and now he's running a run-down driving range in West Texas along with his friend Romeo Posar (Cheech Marin). When Psychologist Dr. Molly Griswold (Rene Russo) comes asking for a lesson, McAvoy asks why, and it turns out Griswold is in a relationship with professional golfer David Simms (Don Johnson), whom McAvoy knew years before. In return, Simms asks McAvoy to caddy for him at a benefit tournament. It begins McAvoy's comeback to the U.S. Open that he'd turned his back on years before. It's a very sweet romantic comedy, and it's an underdog film as well, it ticks all the cliches that many movies like this have to meet, but it manages to look good on screen, with a sun-snogged hue to the scenes. Plus, Costner trained with McCord, and did many of the golf shots on screen himself, which are great.

A sports movie directed by Ron Sheldon? The man has a hell of a pedigree in this area and in this film he manages to make golf sexy! Of course he's helped by a charming performance from Costner who works well off both Russo as his love interest and Marin as his bromance. Perhaps it's a little overlong but by the time you get to the final match you'll be cheering Costner on to make that final putt.

Golf version of "Bull Durham" with some reused plot elements, techniques and feelings, but same enjoyment that's probably more even though it's sort-of forgettable. (B)

Great Kevin Costner is fine for teens. Ages 13+

Every time Ron Shelton gets to do a sports themed film he's in his sweet spot. The cast is miraculous, the script is witty and you come away feeling great. Highly recommended!
