Tin Cup Reviews

August 7, 2019
It is a charmer from tee-off to final putt.

The good news about the amiable but only partly satisfying Tin Cup is that it frees Kevin Costner from playing a monument and restores to us the loose, sparkling comic actor he used to be.

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

Tin Cup works for viewers of any handicap.

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.

Dispiritingly conventional and obvious.

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.

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

[A] quirkily easygoing comedy.
January 1, 2000
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.
January 1, 2000
A formula sports comedy with a lot of non-formula human comedy.
