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!

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!

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.

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.

OVERVIEW: Co-written and directed by Ron Shelton, the 1996 romantic comedy "Tin Cup" takes its place as a humorous and well-acted underdog story about a former golf prodigy, Roy McAvoy, who never lived up to his potential. Once McAvoy finally finds his motivation (be it a woman or just a chance to one-up the other guy), he does whatever it takes to qualify for the U.S. Open and prove his worth in the world of golf.

The first time I saw "Tin Cup," it was being broadcasted on basic cable. As I watched, I couldn't believe how funny it was and that I'd never before heard of the movie. I quickly went online to purchase the DVD for home viewing. On a personal level, I get a little tired of the motivational sports movies that take themselves too seriously--for this reason, "Tin Cup" is among my favorites for the genre. Rotten Tomatoes gives "Tin Cup" a 69% rating on the tomato-meter, which is higher than I had anticipated, yet seems to signify a respectable fan-base for the film.

STARRING ROLES include: Kevin Costner as Roy "Tin Cup" McAvoy, Don Johnson as David Simms, Rene Russo as Dr. Molly Griswold, Cheech Marin as Romeo Posar, Linda Hart as Doreen, Rex Linn as Dewey, Lou Myers as Clint, Dennis Burkley as Earl, and George Perez as Jose.

"Tin Cup" also features its weight in cameos from TV golf commentators Jim Nantz, Frank Chirkinian, and Ken Venturi as well as from professional golfers Phil Mickelson, Craig Stadler, Gary McCord, Corey Pavin, Johnny Miller, Lee Janzen, Billy Mayfair, and Fred Couples.

SUMMARY: As a young lad, the world of golf had high expectations for Roy "Tin Cup" McAvoy, but Roy seems just fine and dandy living the simple life in West Texas.
