Product Description

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

5.0 out of 5 stars See This Film! 8 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is a fantastic piece of comic genius, both from the scriptwriters and all of the actors in it. Kevin Costner is brilliant as an ex-pro golfer who is wasting away, and happens to fall for the girl of his biggest rival. And so begins his pursuit of The Open and the girl's heart!
There are real gems in this script, which I will not spoil by telling you, but suffice to say that Kev's relationship with his caddy, Romeo, is more like a marriage (and he has to justify his devotion to him more than once!), and asking advice about the woman you love FROM the woman you love is never going to be a good idea! (Romeo puts that much better in the film!). Rene Russo does very well in this film (high praise indeed from someone who normally can't stand her), but Don Johnson is somewhat disappointing as the bad guy, cos he somehow doesn't match up to Kevin in terms of his performance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Golfing Romance 13 Jun 2007
By Jay
The perfect romantic comedy has been made. It has got the perfect story. Kevin Costner plays the retired golf-player Roy McAvoy.One day he meets Molly Griswold (Rene Russo).Unfortunately she is involved with Roys "friend" David Simms (Don Johnson). To make Molly believe that he is better than David he is going to win US Open. Costner,Russo and Johnson are all great.But best of them all is Cheech Marin who plays Roys caddie Romeo.Many real Golf-pros have cameos in the movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars grip it and rip it! 17 July 2008
By gozeat
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There are not many golf films but of those that there are this is probably the best. Kevin Costner is an ill-diciplined golf pro, running a decrepid driving range in a small Texas town. He is a naturally gifted player choc full of inner demons and a strong reckless streak. Along comes Reno Russo for a lesson (she is also the local shrink) and from there the sparks fly and in a bid to prise her away from an old partner and rival he tries to qualify for the USA Open. The film is warm and funny and a love story as much about his relationship with his caddy and best friend Romeo (played by Cheech Martin)with whom he has a somewhat fractious interplay as Romeo tries to keep him playing in a sensible fashion. It is a great film about human fraility, the hunt for glory and the perfect golf shot. The final scene of the USA Open is one of the best in any film but especially familiar to anyone who plays the game and knows that they could have hit THAT one great shot! It is a film about going for it and you should as well!

4.0 out of 5 stars Tin Cup-recommended 13 July 2009
By AmyHop
I've always loved this film (previously had video) and intoduced it to my daughters.
Rach (23) enjoyed it too; Claire (16)-"oh no, it's about golf!" liked it more than she expected to.
If you like playing/watching golf and enjoy people, this is a film you'll watch again and again. Honest!
I can't believe I bought it for the price I did and now intend to update other favourites to DVDs.

5.0 out of 5 stars lovely 13 Nov 2009
By wombat
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Charm, heart and humour - what more could you want from a romantic comedy. Rene Russo is at her most delightful, Cheech Marin is fantastic as the beleaguered best friend Romeo and the only other time Kevin Costner is this wonderful is in Bull Durham.
"Sex and golf are the two things you can enjoy even if you're not good at them." makes me thing golf might be worth a try after all...

4.0 out of 5 stars very enjoyable 16 April 2014
'Underdog' storyline with golf at its heart, totally unbelievable but great fun to be part of.
Chemistry between all the actors (major and minor) is great and they all this such an enjoyable couple of hours!

4.0 out of 5 stars Golf film 8 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a good film but I think your really need to be a golfer to appreciate it. There is a love interest in the fragrant Rene Russo but it is the golf which dominates. Legend of Bagger Vance was a better film if your partner is not a golfer.

I played golf with a mate who had never seen this film, so i bought it for him as a gift. It's quite old but if you like Golf or Kevin costner, this is well worth a watch.
