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

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!

Roy McAvoy is a troubling character that you can't help but route for and a storybook ending that fits his character perfectly. Oh, and lots of golf of course.

One of the best (and few) really good golf movies around!

Not a big golf fan but the movie was cool.

Kevin Costner is an amazing golfer.

It's more or less a decent sports movie until the epic ending which was surprising and predictable all at the same time.

I love this movie, and Cheech! Look for a very young Phil Mickelson

Any golf fan knows this is a great movie. See Phil Mckileson at age ....what 25? Truely interprets Golf as a whole sport. Kevin Costner perfectly portrayed a golf instructor and Don Johnson was a great pick for the bad guy.
