Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Karl Williams
The best sports comedy from co-writer/director Ron Shelton since Bull Durham (1988), this lively, funny character-driven piece is a kinder, gentler, and, since the subject is golf instead of baseball, more pastoral film than the one that made Shelton and star Kevin Costner famous. That doesn't mean that it's less of a movie, as Shelton offers up a handful of memorable scenes, one a classic involving the protagonist's inability, down to a seemingly genetic level, to make the smart play. Like so much of the rest of the film, it is a breathtaking bit of writing in its giddy duality, presenting the hero as both heartbreakingly stupid and yet simultaneously noble (and ultimately, right). Costner, who is sometimes unintentionally funny in the sort of smart, competent roles he usually takes, is perfectly likable and winning as a talented dope. Supporting work is uniformly good, with Rene Russo effectively brittle in the smart female lead role usually inhabited by Shelton's wife, Lolita Davidovich, and the future Nash Bridges pairing of Don Johnson and Cheech Marin winning in comic roles as, respectively, the film's antagonist and the hero's guy Friday. As proven by the later failure of The Legend of Bagger Vance (2000), golf is a tough, slow-moving sport for cinematic translation, making Shelton's achievement with Tin Cup (1996) all the more impressive.

A sport movie (golf theme) with a romantic twist... A really good movie to watch time after time. Funny, romantic, competitive, it has it all!

From the opening credits, showing the armadillo-infested driving range in Texas, this movie will charm you. Russo, Costner and Morin give lovely performances from a witty and clever script. You can learn to enjoy golf, too. The soundtrack is a big plus, all original songs. Try singing along with "A little bit is better than nada" or "Flat broke and busted and all crapped out again"..they grow on you. Costner must be the most natural athlete to show up in contemporary films what a treasure he is. Tip: the more you watch it the funnier it gets.

I don't understand golf or necessarily like it, but this movie is so funny and entertaining, you don't mind it if you don't like the game. Kevin Costner is so adorable cute in this and a great golfer. Outstanding.
