Overview

Roy McAvoy Kevin Costner is a talented golf pro, who owns his own driving range. That sounds impressive, but the reality is quite different. While it's true that Roy is indeed a talented golfer and does own a driving range, it is in a tiny, unheard of Texas backwater. With almost no customers, he is likely to go broke. His golfing talents remain untapped and his life is rapidly going nowhere. To pass the time, he drinks a lot of beer with his buddies, or swings at a bucket of balls.

Overview

Roy McAvoy Kevin Costner is a talented golf pro, who owns his own driving range. That sounds impressive, but the reality is quite different. While it's true that Roy is indeed a talented golfer and does own a driving range, it is in a tiny, unheard of Texas backwater. With almost no customers, he is likely to go broke. His golfing talents remain untapped and his life is rapidly going nowhere. To pass the time, he drinks a lot of beer with his buddies, or swings at a bucket of balls. Sometimes, he even plays real golf, and his friend and assistant Romeo Cheech Marin caddies for him. That's all there is for Roy, until he is wakened from his deathlike reverie by a visit from a newcomer in town, psychologist Molly Griswold Renee Russo. Teaching her how to swing a club reminds him of feelings he had nearly forgotten. Discovering that she is the girlfriend of his old golfing rival, David Simms Don Johnson, goads him yet further, and he returns to the PGA golf tour to compete in the U.S. Open. Maybe he'll get Molly for himself, maybe not, but in the meantime he has some things to prove to himself.

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.

    Classic "boy meets girl"

    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!

    Tin Cup Is Priceless

    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.

    One of the funniest movies ever made.

    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.
