5.0 out of 5 stars Even for those who (quite rightly) hate golf!
Bill Paxton has taken the true story of the 1913 US golf open and made a film that is about much more than an extra-ordinary game of golf. The film also deals directly with the class tensions of the early twentieth century and touches upon the profound anti-Catholic prejudices of both the British and American establishments. But at heart the film is about that perennial...

5.0 out of 5 stars Read it, 25 Nov. 2011
This review is from: The Greatest Game Ever Played [DVD] (DVD)
This is the best book on golf I've ever read. How tough were those players of yesteryear, no hightec gear, no trainers, coaches and hangers on they just went out and played the game in any weather. Wonderful read

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining!!, 10 Sept. 2011
This review is from: The Greatest Game Ever Played [DVD] (DVD)
Very well told depiction of the true story of an amateur golfer winning the US Open. A Disney movie without being too 'Disneyfied', in other words not too smarmy!!

Great Film of a true game of an historical game of golf, even a good film for the golf widows or young inspired future golfers in the family to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST FILM EVER!, 30 Jun. 2009

I love this film and couldn't wait to get a copy. A true story about Harry Vardon and Francis Ouimet who had to put up with snobbish attitudes and the class system to become world class golfers.

Extra's
There is an interesting behind the scenes of the film which is longer than the region 2 dvd-but could always do with being a bit longer still. An interview with the real Francis Ouimet.Two informative commentary by Bill Paxton and Mark Frost. And a biography documentary on Ouimet.

I would recommend this to all people who enjoy true stories as I do. This is about the game of Golf which originated in Scotland. A boy who grows up watching and loving that game. It is a movie about his story and is very captivating. I can guarantee of you buy it you will love the story and remember this is a true story not a fiction. But it and enjoy. Same as many others true stories of real life sports men whether it be football or Hockey or any sport watching a champion is just great to see.
