Editorial Reviews

One of the better romantic comedies of the 1990s, this quirky love story stars Kevin Costner as washed-up golf pro Roy "Tin Cup" McAvoy, who has the singular misfortune of falling in love with the girlfriend (Rene Russo) of his arch rival (Don Johnson). Although he is inspired to re-ignite his golf career, challenge his opponent in the U.S. Open, and win the affection of the woman of his dreams, McAvoy has just one flaw: he's a show off when he should just focus on playing the game. Reunited with his Bull Durham writer-director Ron Shelton, Costner fits into his role like a favorite pair of shoes, and costar Cheech Marin scores a memorable scene-stealing comeback as McAvoy's best buddy, Romeo Posar. Mixing his love of sports with his flair for fresh, comedic dialogue, Shelton takes this enjoyable movie down unexpected detours (although some may find it a bit too long), and his characters are delightfully unpredictable. --Jeff Shannon

Product Description

An unreachable shot to the green. A hopeless romance. Driving-range pro Roy McAvoy can't resist an impossible challenge. Each is what he calls a defining moment. You define it. Or it defines you. With lady-killer charm and a game that can make par with garden tools, Kevin Costner rejoins Bull Durham filmmaker Ron Shelton for another funny tale of the games people play. For Costner's Roy, golf is a head-and heart-game. On both counts, that's where shrink Molly Griswold (Rene Russo) comes in. She's big city, Roy's small time, and he believes only the grandest of gestures can lure her away from a slick touring pro (Don Johnson) and earn her love. So Roy and his dutiful caddy (Cheech Marin) set out to do the impossible: win the U.S. Open. With laughs, clever battle-of-the-sexes banter and a handy way with a 7-iron, Tin Cup winningly defines the moment and contemporary romantic comedy

4.0 out of 5 stars Costner Shoots a Birdie! February 7, 2000
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Kevin Costner should stick to playing likeable average guys in films like 'Tin Cup'! Ron Shelton, who had worked with the actor earlier in one of the best baseball films ever made ('Bull Durham'), takes on the trials and tribulations of a journeyman professional golfer in this outing, and while it lacks the charm and comraderie of the earlier film, it manages to make the solitary nature of golf more human and acceptable to all the non-golfers out here.
It is not the best golf film ever made (that honor goes to the Randy Quaid comedy, 'Dead Solid Perfect'), and it does have flaws (the leisurely pacing, some overlong scenes), but there is such a warm, fuzzy feeling to the entire film that you end up rooting for Costner, both on the golf course, and in his pursuit of Rene Russo (who is wonderful!)
Cheech Marin provides welcome comedy relief, and Don Johnson's slick smarminess is a perfect counterpoint to Costner's gonzo approach to golf and life.
Costner's laid-back charm, perhaps his greatest asset as an actor, is often lost in sci-fi epics like 'Waterworld', and 'The Postman', or tearjerkers like 'Message in a Bottle'. Sports films are a far better venue for him ('Bull Durham' and 'Field of Dreams' are cases in point), and he is relaxed and confident in 'Tin Cup', making this one of his best performances.
Buy it! You won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the funniest movies ever made. July 17, 2006
I'm so glad I bought this DVD; the more I watch it the funnier

it gets. Charming performances, witty dialogue, and a music score

to die for. (Roger Ebert's review available from imdb catches this

work just right.) Costner has never been more charming and disarming. Kevin and Rene have some sweet love scenes, nothing

like the searing stuff she did with Brosnan in Thomas Crown!

I never in my life could "get" golf, and now I am

watching the tournaments on TV. The lore of this film has passed

into the general culture, at least among golf people, and you will

laugh all the way through this delightfully quirky movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars If only Costner stuck to sports movies January 19, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Kevin Costner is one of the most athletic actors in film history. Not many others could have made Crash Davis believable in Bull Durham. In this movie, Costner shows his athletic ability again, playing a round of golf with a variety of gardening tools and swtich-hitting his drives.
Costner also shows another side of his talent - his title role is a not-too-bright loser. This is a big departure from his epic heros in Waterworld and The Postman. As you might suspect, he's a better loser than he is a hero.
One other thing about the golf in this movie - while some of it is pretty out there (does ESPN really televise pro-am's from podunk towns in West Texas?), there's nothing really unstable. No PA guys doing play-by-play or generic white uniforms or anything like that. The scene on the driving range before the US Open is a classic!
The rest of the cast is solid, and Cheech Marin nearly steals the movie (as he often does). The plot does hold one big surprise (the end isn't what you think it's going to be), but is fairly predictable otherwise. The soundtrack is great, the West Texas and North Carolina scenery is great, and there's more than a few laughs.
Pick it up and enjoy!

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected... relaxed fun July 9, 1999
By A Customer
I rented this DVD on a whim. I'm not a golfer, but you don't need to be in order to enjoy this little film. It's obvious how things will turn out from early on, but it really doesn't matter. The cast is solid and the film is fun, even if the plot contains few surprises.
There's lots of fun one-liners, a good musical score, and a good transfer. The DVD lacks many features, but it does have both widescreen and pan-and-scan. I have to say you lose a LOT if you watch the pan-and-scan, golf courses are WIDE places.

5.0 out of 5 stars I just LOVE this movie July 3, 2003
Tin Cup is just FUN!! It does not have a deep message. It has no deep conflicting character analyses. No big lessons of life in transition here. It's just plain old entertainent.
Russo is her flakey,sweet,adorable self. Costner is a natural for this down-and-out fellow drinking beer and betting on which bug will be zapped next. His friends are just plain ole Texas boys. Cheech Marin ,as Romeo Posnar, is a scene stealer. Great role and nice to see him again.
Some silly dialogue. The "Pancake House" scene is hysterical. Some nice, mature friendship develoment between Marin, Hart (who ROCKS!!) as Doreen, all in relation to Costner's "Tin Cup" character.
Just fun! Don't miss the armadillos- nice touch in the opening scene.
Shawn Colvin's "Back To Salome" (last song in closing credits) is hantingly beautiful as well as quirky- kind of like Russo and Costner.

4.0 out of 5 stars "I don't even like golf, but this movie is o.k.! September 26, 2002
Like "Caddyshack" before it, this movie is a fun take on the sport, Kevin Costner proved here he could be funny, with Cheech Marin thrown in for good measure, watching these guys interact is always fun, In this Costner is Roy McAvoy, an everyday man with character flaws that somtimes reminds us of our own, he is a washed-up driving range pro, who at one time had the ability to be the Tiger Woods of his generation,but let his ego ruin it every time, Don Johnson is good here as Costner's advesary who echoes what Costner's Roy could have been, Johnson is now a big time player & very arrogant at that, Renee Russo stars as Johnson's girlfriend who Costner developes a fixation on & decides to win her over by entering the U.S Open which in turn will pit him against Johnson, Costner's charm really comes out as if he is a lovesick puppy & Russo's demeanor only heightens it, as Cheech reminds him that it is about focus, not ego, Cheech is very good here & puts his past as half of Cheech & Chong behind him, as he is the one guy that has to make sure Costner doesn't screw up again, Russo is very convincing as the love interest of both Costner & Johnson & eventually makes the right choice, the last 15 or 20 minutes are like watching golf on a sunday afternoon, but overall a good movie about facing one's fear & ego, like "Caddyshack" it is full of one-liners as Cheech is the voice of reason & Costner the flawed everyday man within us all.
