Golf Pro 'Tin Cup' McAvoy (Kevin Costner) is reduced to giving lessons, but when he gets psychologist Molly Griswold (Rene Russo) as a client, he starts to aspire to something higher. Deciding that the only way to impress Molly is to win the US Open, he sets out with his caddy Romeo to improve his game. Matters are not helped by the fact that Molly is dating Tin Cup's arch rival, David Simms (Don Johnson). Features cameo appearances from real-life golfing stars.
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 US 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 Tin Cup
role like a favourite 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
